How do i make it so that my ipod can be enabled for disk use if i dont have itunes and i cant download itunes to the computer because of administrative locks? I dont know how to do this one i need somebody's help!!!?
If u don't have itunes installed then the ipod should have disc use enabled automatically when you plug it in to the computer. Are you running windows xp? Perhaps connecting usb devices is blocked by admin aswell?

You will need to restore the iPod. Since it is not showing up in iTunes, you will need to put the iPod into disc mode before connecting it to your computer. Below I have posted a step by step on putting an ipod into disc mode as well as restoring it. (Just in case you need the information)
Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off.
(Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
Once it is in disc mode and connected to your computer, open iTunes.
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.
The 4 possible restore options are:
1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.
When this stage is completed,
iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display.
It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.
Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to
name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
After everything is complete, eject the iPod and disconnect it. Then without putting it into disc mode reconnect it to see if it will load normally in itunes.
If you still cannot use the iPod normally after these trouble shooting steps, you most likely have a hardware issue and will need to either get it serviced or replaced. I do hope that is not the case though. Please let me know if you find this article helpful towards your issue. :) Good luck
