Could be a loose hard drive connection cable on the inside. Could also be some corrosion on the USB connection. Try a different cable. Put your ear to the back and listen for clicking noises from the iPod - if you hear it you might have a warranty issue with a bad HDD. Attempt a restore. Worst case, try to get it evaluated by a technician - do not try to open an iPod Classic yourself- you will most likely cause permanent damage.

Follow the onscreen prompts to download and install the latest version of the software. Open the new version of iTunes. Click the name of your iPod in the source list and check for updates under the summary tab to update your iPod. Attempt to sync your iPod with iTunes. Slide your iPod's hold switch to the hold position and then to off. Press and hold the menu and center buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears to reset your iPod. Open iTunes on your computer and reconnect your iPod to try to sync it with iTunes. Restart iPod service b> Close iTunes and make sure your iPod is disconnected from the computer. Click the 'start' button. Click 'run' if using Windows XP. Type 'services.msc' in the run box in XP and in the search box in the start menu in Windows 7 and Vista. Press 'enter.' Scroll through the list and double-click on 'iPod service.' Click the 'stop' button and leave the properties window open. Connect your iPod to the computer.

1. If you have enabled AutoSync, everytime the iPod is connected, the iPod will sync all your files. It is not only the songs that are copied. It also copies the videos, photos and contacts too. Maybe it was trying to sync them.

2. Even if it had really done with sync of all songs, video, photos and contacts, it will always show the message "Do not disconnect". What you will have to do is click on the eject button in the iPod icon which appears in iTunes. The iPod will be ejected only when you eject it from the iTunes.

Ipods are usually put into recovery mode when you attempt to restore it. Download the latest software for your ipod and hit update, or restore, whichever appears. The process should be simple. Goodluck and I hope this helped. :)

Ipod won't sync to Itunes


Does your ipod actually work or no?
if it works put it in disk mode by pressing the menu and center buttons and holding until the apple appears and switching to the center and play buttons and holding until the check mark appears.

then plug it in the the usb and see what happens.
if it mounts to itunes try and restore. if not go to my computer and see if it is there. if so right click on the drive and format...not quick format use full format.
then repeat the steps before until you get it mounted.
more than likely you have a virus and the virus is not letting the restore program delete it.

You must be cautious and try to recover lost data from your iPod from reliable and proved software which is non-destructive and can recover all data—damaged or deleted. Any compromise can thwart your recovery process. Try Stellar Phoenix iPod Recovery Software.
