Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

1 Answer

IPod Classic 80 GB - Silver perpetually restarts itself after enabling auto sync.

I just bought a new iPod Classic 80 GB - Silver from Best Buy. I brought it home and, with autosync off, I added songs. The iPod worked as it should. After I selected autosync and disconnected the ipod after the update, however, the iPod began a cycle of hard restarts, making to the main menu for about 2 seconds when it restarts itself again. I ran diagnostics, running into no problems besides that for a few of the tests it needed firewire (FW) connection when it is clearly USB...
anyway, I forced the iPod into disk mode and reset it to its original state. Again, I manually added songs to the iPod. It worked fine. Again, I tried to autosync again, and the iPod begans its cycle of restarts. It is no in forced deep sleep. What should I do?

I can't sync my IPod 80MG since downloading the newfangled iTunes9!


I never heard of Apple putting out a 80 MG ipod touch. You must have one of those cheap China knock offs. The ipod touch comes in three flavors- 8, 16, and 32 GB
If you got an ipod classic 80 GB, then hold the center and Menu button same time until the Apple logo appears.  This will reset the thing for you and you can try re-syncing.  Otherwise, uninstall itunes 9 and go back to the update that was working.  Just cause its a new update doesn't mean you gotta install it.  If your system works, then don't fu.k with it.

I dropped my ipod classic 80 gb. It can't be detected when i sync to my computer. I did a hard restart but it it says that my files will be deleted when i restore it with itunes. I dont wanna lose my files...


The only way to save the files is by connecting it to pc and storing them in a file. Try checking the usb connection inside the ipod. If there are any broken wires or solder joints, re-solder them or anything you can do to get it to connect.

Try connecting it, go to control panel, the ipod should be able to found on the I: drive.
