My iPod classic (30GB) keeps showing "do not


Try holding down the menu/center button for at least 10-15 seconds, if that does not reset it try the center button and play/pause combo for the same time period (I used to have the same model as you, one of these 2 combos usually worked).

You can also try connecting your ipod to another computer with iTunes on it to see if its a software or hardware problem with your iPod. Or you can uninstall/reinstall iTunes and see what happens after a fresh install

and yea you can let the battery run out overnight if you want, but if you do get to fix it I'd say back up your music on the iPod through a program like iDump or something in the meantime

How to reset my 60gb classic


Step 1: Hook iPod up to computer using the included cable that came with the iPod.
Step 2: Open iTunes and on the left side, your iPod should show up.
Step 3: Click on the iPod and your right screen should change to show your iPod and its current general information.
Step 4: Scroll down the right screen to find the "Restore" option. Click on that, and it will give you a warning telling you that it will erase everything on the iPod. Click Yes.
Step 5: Wait, and iTunes will prompt you in a few minutes with a welcome screen for your reset iPod.

    Tip:

    • 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.

I am not able to unlock my iPod classic. Tried different way to unlock but not successful. I tried toggle on and off then reset the iPod. Also I restored the iPod but still not been able to use click...


Usually if your lock Icon is visible on any ipod, that indicates the Hold "button" is in the locked position. If the hold button isn't in the locked position, I'd try sliding it to the locked position and then back over to the unlocked position as the button sometimes comes free of the bracket that actuallys slides the switch.

Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button. When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on. Good luck, and I hope this helps.
