There are many iPod error icons with exclamation marks


The Sad iPod icon (my ipod mini 4gig has been corrupted. trying to - 93936_4.gif ) usually means that the iPod can't access it's Hard Drive. I've seen that hitting the ipod on a soft surface occasionally fixes this. You may need to take the iPod for repair


The Folder Error icon (93936_1.gif) may mean the battery is low, the ipod needs to be reset, restored or needs a sermy ipod mini 4gig has been corrupted. trying to - 93936_2.gif

The Battery Icon () usually means the battery needs charging

93936_3.gif means a disk scan failed and will be repeated when the ipod is turned on or reset.



Try restoring it continuouly until it does (eventually worked for mine)

if it is anything else, your iPod may need repair.



Good Luck!

iPod Symbol Meanings
The Apple iPod personal media player uses a set of symbols to communicate what's happening to the device: when it needs to be recharged or when it's experiencing problems.
Sometimes it's not obvious what these symbols mean; problems with your iPod may cause conflicting or confusing icons to be displayed.
Folder with an Exclamation Point

This suggests that your iPod can't read data stored on it.
Your iPod may simply not have enough charge in its battery to read its hard drive.
If recharging it doesn't help, you can try connecting it to your computer, then updating it with the latest version of the iPod's software.
If none of this works, you may have a dead hard drive; your iPod will need to be repaired.
Battery with an Exclamation Point
A battery with an exclamation point usually just means that your iPod needs to recharge.
Once the battery has charged up again, everything should be fine.
You can charge an iPod through a FireWire connection to a computer, but not if the computer is in sleep mode or switched off.
Third-generation iPods cannot be charged via USB 2; later iPod models can, however.
If you are having problems charging your iPod, try switching cables.
You can also try resetting the iPod by pressing Play and Select together (Menu and Play on earlier models).
If none of these methods help, your battery may need to be replaced.
Empty Battery
If the battery icon shows an empty battery, this means that your iPod is almost out of charge and needs to power up.
If you know that the iPod has been charging for a while, and the battery icon is still empty, you may need to update its software.
Older software can lead to a confused battery readout.
Wall Plug with Power Adapter
This means that your iPod needs to be plugged into an electricity supply while it updates its firmware.
You won't be able to do anything else with it until you do this.
Frowning IPod Icon with an Exclamation Point
A picture of an iPod with a sad face and x-ed out eyes plus an exclamation point indicates a very serious problem with the device.
In some cases, draining the battery completely then recharging and resetting the iPod can offer a short term solution, buying you enough time to back up your iPod's data.
The underlying problem will remain and is likely to get worse until your iPod is repaired.
Apple Logo
A brief appearance by the Apple logo when the iPod is reset or switched on is normal and nothing to worry about.
If the logo does not go away and the iPod doesn't boot up, there is a problem.
You can often resolve this by putting the ipod in Disk Mode and then restoring or updating its software; note that you will lose all data stored on the iPod if you do this.
If this doesn't work, your iPod needs specialist attention.
Do Not Disconnect
It is not safe to unplug your iPod when you see this icon. Wait till it goes away, then you can safely disconnect your iPod.
Spinning Disk Icons
The spinning disk and magnifying glass icon means that the iPod is performing a disk scan.
If you don't want to perform a scan right now you can re-set the iPod; you'll see a disk with a cross when you stop the scan.
If you would rather let the scan complete, you should connect the iPod to a power source as scanning drains the battery.
If the scan finds issues but can fix them, you'll see a disk plus an arrow.
If everything is alright, you'll see a disk plus a checkmark.
If there is a problem that the scan disk function could not fix, you'll see a disk plus an exclamation point.

If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod is dead and needs to be replaced.

If the iPod is showing the "Folder/Exclamation Point" icon, this means that the logic board (the circuit board) inside the iPod is no longer working properly and needs to be replaced in order for the iPod to work.

IPod won't turn on, apple sign comes on, then a file image with exclamation mark


Dear Rachel, This is often the result of a corrupt file system or a dead/dying internal iPod hard drive.  The way to eliminate the file system as the cause is to do a RESTORE.  It is probably not showing up on the computer in iTunes, so you need to try to force it into disk mode.  To do this, follow the instructions below: 1)  Toggle the HOLD slider switch to ON then OFF again.  First slide over you will see orange, then slide it back to cover the orange in the hold slider.
2)  Repeat what you did by holding down the menu and select buttons and when you get the Apple logo, IMMEDIATELY let go and hold down the Select and Play buttons.
3)  You SHOULD see a check mark on the screen and along the top of the screen should be the words, "Disk Mode."  If that is there, plug in your iPod to the computer and wait for iTunes to startup.  
4)  In iTunes, select the iPod and then just click on the RESTORE YOUR IPOD button to reinstall the original software (you will lose your tunes stored in your iPod, but you should have them on your iTunes anyway).
If none of this works and you get the nasty sad icon again, it is most likely the hard drive or another hardware issue.  My advice from here is to check with the following company and have them do a FREE diagnosis and quote for repair.  Just go to Rapid Repair at this URL:  http://www.rapidrepair.com/
Good luck and I hope this helps! Jeffrey Wrobel

Hopefully your ipod is still under warranty, because this is indicative of a hardware problem.

You could try to force it into disk mode and do a restore, if that doesn't work then it needs to be sent in for repair.

Ipod just shows folder with ! icon... but windows detects it fine


while disconnected from your PC, toggle the hold button on and then off. Then hold down the menu button and the center button at the same time. hold them until the screen flashes. then release. You may have to try this several times. If that doesn't work, try doing a restore. You can do this from the summary page in itunes. Once itunes has found your ipod, click on 'restore'. all your music will be erased, but you can just do a sync and re-load it later. Follow the instructions once restore is complete. If that doesn't work then your hard drive needs to be reformatted.
