Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
When I hook my ipod up to my comp (using XP) It states that my ipod needs to be re-formatted to be used with Windows and that I need to restore the ipod. I complete all the steps but end up with a message stating that the ipod cannot be restored, unknown error (1429)
Formatting should not be nessary. Use itunes, and restore. If you want to use the ipod for extra storage etc, use itunes and "Enable Disc Usage". then it will appear in "My Computer" and you can acess the files and folders for file transfers.

How to update iPod for Windows using Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000
Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
When you have the latest version, use the iTunes menus to check for updates.
On Windows choose Help > Check for Updates.
Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod and open iTunes if it is not already open.
If you want to update your iPod on a PC, it must be formatted for a PC.
If it is not, you will see a message stating that your iPod needs to be reformatted. I
f you receive this message, refer to Restoring iPod to factory settings before proceeding.
If you are unsure of your iPod's format, refer to iPod: How to determine your iPod's disk format.
If iTunes detects that a newer version of iPod software is available for your model, you will be prompted to download and install the new version.
If you have already downloaded the newest version of the software, you may be prompted to install it.
Depending on the iPod model and whether you use USB or Firewire to connect to your iPod, you may be asked to leave your iPod attached to the computer for the update to complete, or you may be asked to connect the iPod to the power adapter.
Note: not all iPod models ship with a power adapter. Be sure to follow the onscreen instructions to complete the update.
During the update process, you will notice that an Apple logo and progress bar appear on the iPod display.
Note: this may be difficult to see since the iPod's backlight will be turned off.
Once this is completed, you can resume normal use of your iPod.
If you notice a different icon on the iPod screen, refer to iPod iconology or what does this picture on my iPod mean? and the follow the related instructions.
hope this helps
