You need iTunes

www.apple.com/itunes/download


Heres how to restore the player

Restore

  • 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.
How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 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.

The power supply is showing on my screen


The battery icon displays when you have no battery power left. Connect your iPod to a charger. If the iPod will not charge you'll need to buy a new battery.

Apple ipod stuck on now playing but will not go forward or backward. no sound


Best thing you can do is reset the ipod by holding the center and up on the click wheel to reboot. If that doesnt work do a fresh restore of the ipod through Itunes.

If that dont work find a repair service or replace the ipod.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod, not charging too


Hello :

Check the power cord or the charger first . If they both work fine , then the problem will be the battery . When a battery is dead it can't be recharged anymore . If you found that the battery is fine also , then the problem will be hardware failure . Take it to the service for hardware failure . If they couldn't solve the problem , then you need new device .

good luck .

please rate !

I reset the my ipod just like the apple web site said. Then it showed a power cord going 2 an outlet from the wall. So i plugged it in the wall. It still showed it. Then I pressed the menu and center...


You must have a 3rd or 4th gen Ipod. It should not do this with a reset. If you reformat it through Itune , then it will. The plug into a power outlet means it is trying to reformat. If it will not, your hard drive is corupted or logic board. If it is the hard drive and you can get it to show on your computer, you can go to your disc utilities and erase the hard drive by writing zeros. then connect to Itunes and reformate. Plug into a power wall charger and it should complete. You need a good charge in your battery. If your battery is not charging or needs to charge , that will stop it from completing a reformat. I hope this helps.

My new ipod pink nano 8gb keeps freezing


The only thing that i can think of that would help would be to restore your iPod through iTunes. One of the updates might have gotten corrupted. Also, does it only freeze on certain songs or does it just freeze randomly?

FAULTY APPLE IPOD HARD DRIVE


Try starting the Ipod in disc mode attached to your computer and then reformat the drive using disc utility. That should map out any bad sectors. Then try running the Itunes restore software. Hope that gets you up and running again.

First thing to try is a reset

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step
