Need to reformat your ipod - don't disconnect the ipod until you hit eject - ever you should be able to use it again try a different cord and reformat then have fun cause you get to reload all the music unless you were able to save your iTunes library
With this issue if when you connect your ipod to itunes it freezes it is one of 2 issues
1) Your ipod has an error on the disk and the computer cannot read so it freezes - in this case it is a hard ware issue with the ipod and you need to get it repaired
2) Your anti- virus is trying to scan the ipod for virus and it can so rather then letting the ipod connect to your cpu it freezes the process till you disconnect the ipod -
A great test would be if you can take this to another cpu and try it if it freezes that cpu too then it is the ipod - if it works fine then it is the anti-virus you need to stop the scan and fix process.
mine did the same thing. plug it into the computer. when it's open in iTunes, set the iPod to manual. sometimes when it's automatic, it'll clear itself out/freeze up until you plug it in again. this worked for me. it could be a glich, or their way of getting us to go onto iTunes more often.
u need a new 20gb...is ur ipod full with song? not working correctly? my suggestion is this (if you are willing) plug the ipod to pc....itunes will pop up...(make sure all video,photos and music is saved in itunes by syncing it).now x out of itunes...go to my computer open the ipod drive and copy software and hidden software to your pc (do not rename any part of this)....software is copied, format the ipod drive (yes you wish to erase it)...format is complete...now copy the software back on to ipod from pc.......go to start or click on itunes icon to open itunes....if ipod not found in 30-45 seconds disconnect the ipod for 10 sec and plug it back to pc..add your photos/video/music back to ipod...its working like brand new
hy you have a hardware problem and you have tree reason for this :
1.- the batteries don't have enough ampere to start hdd motor this is happening when you charge it whit your computer and not whit apple charger.
2.- you have short whit your lock and hear plug check this first
3.- hdd cable are broken because of the vibration off the hhd
Since that you've tried resetting/restore method but no good still you can try to update the software of your ipod. Most likely the problem you've experiencing might have been caused by a corrupted software on your ipod.
First off, you'll need the latest version of iTunes.
If you don't have it already, go into iTunes, click Help and select Check for Updates.
After you are all nice and updated....
Connect the iPod to your computer and open iTunes (if not already open).
iTunes will see if a newer version of the iPod software is available, and prompt you to download and install it.
Follow any instructions that might come up.
The iPod display will display an Apple logo and a progress bar.
When this is completed, eject the iPod and check if it is now working.
