    How old is this IPod?

    I've seen these batteries do strange things before and maybe it needs to be replaced.

    If there is an Apple store in your area, you might to take it in and have them look at it. They ususally do it at no charge.

    You tried holding down on the center button while holding down on the menu button already unitl you get the Apple logo?

Try resetting Ipod first:

Reset an iPod:

picexporterror Toggle the Hold switch to on, then back to off (none of the red is showing).

picexporterror Press and hold down the Menu and Select buttons (as shown in the picture) for 6-10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

picexporterror For many problems, you may have to do this several times. The iPod may be hung up on several things so you have to tell it: "Reset that. Now reset this. Yes, reset that too" and etc.

Restore an iPod:

Warning: When you restore and iPod, you...

... delete everything on it (songs, pictures, movies, files, games, firmware, etc.) Hey! That means any stuff that's on the iPod, but not in the iTunes library, will be lost. After deleting everything, iTunes reloads the iPod software with a fresh copy (referred to as "factory settings").

Using iTunes

When the iPod is connected, select it in the Source list in iTunes. Under the Summary tab, there is a button named "Restore." Click it. Select the restore option you want then sit back. A progress bar will show you the status of the restore. When it's done, you'll see a message like "Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore." Now the iPod will show a progress bar. Do not disconnect during this part. When it's done, the iTunes Setup Assistant will prompt you to name and configure the iPod.

If that Put ipod in disk mode by toggle hold switch off then on and when apple logo appers hold action(middle button)and bottom button until a tick appers.Then connect to itunes.

Disk empty & the file cannot be created

well the first question i would ask is how you are transfering music and video to the ipod. The reason i ask is because it sounds like you are not using itunes. itunes is the only way to actually put content on any ipod. with all that said when using itunes connect the ipod witht he provided cable and push the restore button on the summary screen for the ipod which should appear in itunes when you plug in the ipod to the computer you are using. after it restores you can try adding music and a video and see what happens

Greetings sophia65,

If you have tried to reboot the ipod and it still stays hung up on one screen, you may need to take it in to have it serviced. Ipods have an operating system much like a computer and can become corrupt. Any certified repair technician should be able to diagnose what is causing this issue.

Thank you,

Agent Dort,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Ipod wont connect to computer

Have you tried to just do a re-set? Toggle the hold switch on then off, then hold down the center button and the menu button at the same time. Keep holding them until the screen flashes, then release. This basically reboots the ipod. If you can get to the main menu on the ipod, you should also be able to find a settings menu which should have a default selection, which should also re-set the player. If neither of these work, you'll have to try putting it back into disk mode and doing a restore if iTunes can find the player. You might also try connecting it to a different computer and seeing if it is found. If you can get any computer to recognize the player as a hard drive, you can re-format it using the windows software, then you can re-store using itunes.
