Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player
I bought my iPod classic 2 days ago in another city. Had a friend load some music onto it using his Apple-Mac-PC so i could listen to my new player on the trip back. Plugged it into my Windows-PC/-XP with the latest iTunes-7 already installed upon arriving home and i'm told 'need to restore' "Fine" cos I dont really like much of the music my friend put on their. iTunes then sets to work restoring it only to then say error downloading check server connections etc. my connection is fine and downloads perfectly.
So, what do i do to restore + get my iPod working on my XP-Windows??
and will i get this annoyance everytime I want to load-up my iPod on another PC (be it an Apple-OS or a WIndows-platform) ???
I thought, as long as the PC;(Apple or Windows) has iTunes installed on it then iPod will work problem free no matter how much of a floozy makes of itself getting around????
If when you have a new ipod and you connect it to a computer, if the first computer you connect it to is a mac, then that is the only type of pc it will work with after that. If you want it to connect it to a windows, you will have to restore it which will allow it to work with windows software. For some reason unknown, mac and windows have different loading software for the ipod and has to be re-installed with a restore before it can work with a different operating system. When it restores on your computer, check to make sure it has a strong internet connection. You should be able to restore after that.
