The best thing to do is to leave your IPOD connected and restart your system, this way it would boot up with your system.
Note that some ipods prevent some systems from passing through the main start-up screen. If you experience this, unplug your ipod and restart without it being plugged.
It is also possible that you might have purchased a pirated or china ipod and is not compatible with itunes. You can try opening it as an external device from my computer and copy your song files there. If it detects them when you disconnect, then you have purchased a fake ipod.
Hope this solution was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using the fixya website.

A1199 unlock code


Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.

Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

I have an ipod nano 2nd generation. i plug it into the computer and itunes comes up. i had like 392 songs on it and it just deleted when i plugged it in. now i cant even get songs to go on it.


You will need to reset your iPod to factory settings. Plug in your iPod and when iTunes launches, click on the icon for your Nano. There will be a button there saying "Restore iPod to Orginal Settings". Click it and iTunes will automatically do what is necessary. After that completes, you should be able to move songs onto it again.

My ipod nano wont connect to my computer or turn on at all i have the same issue. My ipod nano 2nd Gen won't connect to the computer or charge in any USB port on my computer or my husband's laptop.


there is a high probability that you need a new battery installed in your ipod. However, the ipods don't charge all that well from the usb port. If you have an a/c charger, use it or get one. you can find um cheap like 10 dollars at a drug store.
the battery isn't outrageous in price but that ipod does require the battery to be soldered in.
do a search in the the fixya business guide and you will find me and many others. find someone near you and get your battery done.

It could be that the interface on the IPod is bad or the IPod cable is bad. I would try another cable to see if that fixes the problem.

30 GB Ipod Video Problem - Its locked


To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
