I need help connecting to itunes because my ipod was disabled and i dont remember my password


ipod touch ? if thats the case you have to plug it into your computer using the usb cable.. open itunes and click restore ( it is then up to you if you want to add a password after itunes is finished. ) if itunes dose not detect the ipod or you are having trouble restoring it then make sure you have the most resent itunes installed then hold down the home button and power button at the exact same time and keep holding them. you will hear a ding sound and ipod will turn off,keep holding the home button but leave go of the power button when you hear the ding sound.now keep holding the home button untill you hear another ding sound ( this is the ipod powering back up but screen will be blank ) you can now leave go of the home button ( screen will be blank ) but itunes will see the ipod and say "ipod detected in dfu mode,you must restore " click restore ( if you leave go of the home button before the ding sound you will see the apple logo...if you see the apple logo you have missed the chance to get into dfu mode so do the steps again .. dfu mode is the best way to restore any apple device

Hi there i have a classic 30 gig ipod and think it has picked up a viras of some sort it wont turn on it s coming up with apple logo and turning off again and repeat s this till it runs outt of battery any...


Apple products do not pick up virus of any sort. The problem with your iPod most probably is due to a broken hard disk. If you reset the iPod, hold it close to your ear and take note of a clicking sound. An iPod that's working properly should have no clicking sounds or anything when you reset it. If you can hear one, you have to have the hard disk replaced. Also, before having it replaced, check if you can place it on disk mode and then perform a full restore. Most problems can be solved by resetting the factory settings.

Red X on iPod screen, manual reset not working and iTunes not picking up iPod at all. Help!


check to see if your ipod is under warranty, if so take it to an apple store.

if i were you i would manually reset your ipod and immediately after you see the apple logo smack hard on its side on a sofa or padded carpet. If you do it right you will hear the hard drive make a weird noise and then make a clicking sound and your ipod should work

You have nothing to loose, the most apple will do for you is offer you a 10% discount off any new ipod (no matter how damaged the ipod)

My apple 20gb ipod it does'nt work and apple logo appear on screen.i do reset my ipod and after that it turns to normal but after a minute it hang up and apple logo appear.


It sounds like you may need a new hard drive for your iPod. The Apple logo appearing over and over can signify that your iPod cannot communicate with the hard drive where your music is stored.
You can find replacement drives on websites like ebay or by searching Google.
Hope this helps!

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod WHEN TRY TO CHARGE MY IPOD, IT BEGANS TO CHARGE AND STOPS AFTER A LITTLE WHILE.


Guys, if you have the ipod photo, I used to get the hard drive locking up , which would bring up the www.apple.com/support/ipod screen.

WHen you try to start it up, put the ipod to your ear and listen to hear if the hard drive is stuck-ie if you can hear the drive repeating a clicking noise, then it is stuck.

If it does this, hit the ipod with an open hand (like a slap). No joke. This is for real. Slap it a couple of times and then try to restart it. If it doens't work the first time, try it again. SOmetimes it works first go, sometimes it takes a few, but eventually it does work.
It seems like the hardware inside is stuck for some reason and slapping it fixes the problem.

My ipod has locked up about 5 or 6 times and each time it has worked for me.

Give it a go. Don't pay apple to get it fixed. They probably do the same thing and charge you hundreds for it.

Good luck!

Ipod nano 1st generation trouble! help!


Sounds like a corrupt hard drive.

put it into disk mode

  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Find it in "my computer", right click it and select format. Choose the FAT32 option and hit OK.

Once its done, restart your computer and plug in your pod. Start itunes and it should automatically reinstall the ipod firmware.
