Basicly if you do a restore everything is reset

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your itunes Library.
    • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of itunes.
    • 2. Open itunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
    • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in itunes.
    • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main itunes windows.
    • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt itunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
      • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
      • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
      • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
      • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, itunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
    • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
    • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the itunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

    Why is my computer not reading my ipod


    be careful, you may lose all your data. i have lost all my videos and music last month. so i think you should backup your music/videos to your PC before itunes not work or other
    emergency incidents, to prevent important data loss.

    I recommend u Daniusoft iTransfer. many of my friends are using this product. it can help u to transfer music /videos from iPod/iPhone to your computer and backup them. then you
    dont have to worry about data loss.

    Cannot download music videos to ipod nano classic


    hi, buddy
    First, you need to ensure ur video is in ipod-friendly format MPEG4(MP4), M4V... if not, you can use iTunes to convert them...

    Next, use iTunes to sync them to ur iPod. If you wanna more convenient, you could download this iPod manager tool - Daniusoft iPod transfer :

    1. Backup videos/songs from computer to iPod directly ;
    2. Transfer iPod files to computer smoothly ;
    3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .

    I dropped my iPod classic 80GB. I dont think I got any water into it. It has been 3 days now. When I play my iPod the music coming through the head phones is fuzzy and interfeered. It also wont connect to...


    If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

    1. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON
    2. Pull out the battery.
    3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
    4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
    5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
    6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

    I bought a used ipod from a friend


    Itunes doesnt let you get the content off of the ipod and put it on your computer because then nobody would download music but just share it. There are lots of programs out there for this, some free and some cost money. The ones you pay for are more legitimate but the free ones should work as well. www.download.com and websites like that should have something. I cant think of any names.

    Downlaod-error messege when attempting to reset iPod classis


    If when you have a new ipod and you connect it to a computer, if the first computer you connect it to is a mac, then that is the only type of pc it will work with after that. If you want it to connect it to a windows, you will have to restore it which will allow it to work with windows software. For some reason unknown, mac and windows have different loading software for the ipod and has to be re-installed with a restore before it can work with a different operating system. When it restores on your computer, check to make sure it has a strong internet connection. You should be able to restore after that.

    Cant get into my ipod dont know code


    If you locked yourself out of a device, we can't help you. You need to ask your friends for the codes to un-lock the device.

    This is a fairly simple (yet effective) anti-crack device, and as such, we can not counsel you on ways to defeat this device.
