Hooking up New IPOD Classic Crashes computer

I just purchased an IPOD classic and updated to v7.7. Every time I hook up the new ipod it gives the computer a fatal error. It does recognize the IPOD USB port. then the ipod itself says its connected. At that point the computer crashes. I've unloaded the software twice, and reloated and "repaired" software once. I am not an IPOD novice as we have a 1st generation 40 GB IPOD (scroll buttons don't manipulate menu anymore) and a nano. I tried to unload and go back to earlier sofware version but then my library says it won't read because it was created in a newer version of itunes.

    I have more or less the same problem, although it was working fine for a while. Yesterday, though, it "corrupted" my iPod (*something* is taking up 60GB or so, but I can't access it...) and now iTunes crashes whenever I plug the thing in. Every now and then, just for fun, I get the blue screen of death. This seriously just started happening recently - I haven't installed anything weird (that I know of) although the computer is running Vista.

    Help?

Try going into the settings screen on the iPod and resetting all settings. If that doesn't work you may be able to use one of the many 3rd party tools available to repair the corrupted data. You may also want to try connecting it to a different computer and running itunes on it there.

Cheers

How do I synch i-tunes on a new computer with my old i-pod classic?


Before you connect the iPod, you should install iTunes. The program is free and can be downloaded form the Apple support page. After installing, you better first setup your account. The same name you used to buy the music in the first place. Then connect the iPod to the computer and wait till iTunes starts and shows you the iPod.
Perhaps you have to authorise the PC with the account. You can have up to 5 authorised PC's with one account.

Here you find the software for your computer:

Determining the ipod problem


If the iPod needs to be updated, try installing the update onto the computer without the iPod attached. Once its finished install the iPod into the computer as normal. It should detect the download automatically.
If the iPod won't charge via USB link cord onto the computer, try buying the adaptor plug socket which you can use without the computer. At least then you'll get a chance to see if the iPod can hold a reasonable charge.
I had a similar problem at Xmas there with a new iPod classic. Eventually I had it replaced as it was found to have problems with the hard disk on the iPod itself. Good luck!

IPod Errors


Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.

My Ipod doesn't show up on Tune Tools


Hi,

Try Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.

My Ipod doesn't show up on Tune Tools


You may need to restore the iPod in iTunes. You could try to install Tune Tools on another Mac and see if it works there. It is possible that the software version you have does not support the Classic. There may be an updated version that you need to install to use it with the Classic. Check the authors site or the documentation for supported models.
