Clicking noise = hardware failure. Find out if you are in warranty, and get replaced. Unless you are in Philadelphia, there is no Mp3 repair svc most likely.

30 GB iPod video restore problem


It sounds as if the hard drive is in a state that doesn't allow it to be properly used. This would explain why the iPod tells you it is corrupted and why iTunes fails to restore it properly. Does the iPod make a clicking noise when you try to turn it on? Try holding the backplate up to your ear to help you be able to hear it. If it does, that means the armitures in the hard drive are misaligned and can not properly read the hard drive platters (circular platforms that hold the data). This can be caused by dropping the iPod or excessive movement (such as a pocket, etc.) What you can try to do to fix it is holding the iPod in one hand, and making a fist with the other, and hit the side of the iPod a few times with some force but not enough to break it. If all goes as planned, this should knock the armitures back into place so that the hard drive can function properly again. If this doesn't work, you'll need to replace the hard drive in your iPod. For the price this would cost, you may want to consider just buying a new iPod. This method has maybe a 60% success rate; I used to repair iPods as a hobby with a little extra income and this is what I attempted with all hard drive issues.

HELP


To restore the iPod, you go into iTunes, plug in your iPod, and on the sort of, iPod Menu Start-Up Page, there is a section called Version. It's on the screen when the iPod is plugged in, so you don't need to click on something called Version, and in that it says "If you are experiencing problems with your iPod, you can restore its original settings by clicking Restore." To the right of this, there is a restore button.
Restore deletes everything on the iPod, and then puts it back on.
You will lose saved games though.
Hope I helped.

Apple Ipod Video 30gb wont update and restore and wont format using fat32


ok, well we need to perform the restore.

unplug the ipod. then plug it back in, make sure noting is useing your ipod, no windows into the ipod disk are open or any programs expt itunes is on. (close everything else you dont need expt itunes)

Then try to restore to a new version.

restore instructions


  • 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.

My iPod froze, and says it is recovery mode.


try 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.

Tip:
  • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
  • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep

Is it still in recovery mode?
