Almost one year ago I bought a black 30gb Ipod video and it has been working fine ever since.
However when I was adding some music, it suddenly said: can't sync Ipod, missing file.
After trying to copy the song a couple more times I disconnected my Ipod and connected again.
However suddenly Itunes and my Ipod didn´t recognize any of the files on it anymore. In Itunes it said: 8gb of ´other´ and 19gb ´free space´ instead of 6gb ´music´ etc. as it used to before. It just showed a blank Ipod, like when you have just bought it.
Then after disconnected my Ipod again mu Ipod itself didn´t recognize the music that´s on it either, and shows none of my playslists or anything that I copied on it, again like you have just bought the ipod.
Now in the end when I connect my Ipod nothing happens. Itunes doesn´t recognize it and also my Ipod won´t say anything.
The strange thing is it is being recognized by my computer but when I open it, it only shows a blank screen.
Please help me.
Try booting it into disk mode. Do this by clicking on the menu and center buttons at the same time. When you see the apple logo, immediatley hold the centerbutton and play button down at the same time for 10 seconds. The ipod should now say disk mode at the bottom and have a check mark on the screen.
Then connect it to your computer, and format it using your computer. To do that click on my computer, then right click on the drive letter assigned to your ipod (should be like drive I: or H: or similar.. Then scroll down to format and click on format. This should reformat the ipod completely.
Once that is done disconnect your ipod from the computer and reset it again using the center and menu buttons. After it reboots, try reconnecting it to you r computer and see if it is fixed.

It seems your battery is finished, perhaps start charging it continuously, maybe you may get some charge, if not then you will need to have the battery replaced, remember evaluate the cost of repairs to a new iPod,
First of all i didnt report a problem on a 'ipod video 30gb black......its a 2gb silver nano....and based solely on this one email, i'd be more comfortable simply buying another ipod rather than dealin with maybe this,or try that.......hell i could've already bought a new one and installed the music in this length of time......at some point you would think that these 2 systems would be a little more end user friendly and ya wouldn't need an IT degree to do basic stuff.....oh wait,sorry i drifted off into fantasy land....anyhow thanks for your concerns about my problem.Good luck!
How did you get your songs,pictures,videos on your ipod? i tunes is a program that you use to load your ipod. you download it for free @ apple.com.
make sure you download the one you need; make sure its not the mac download.
install itunes; there should be "restore to factory"
That is most likely because they are not in the right format for the ipod to play. For the songs, right click on them and click on convert to mp3. Then transfer the mp3 song on there and it should work then. For the videos, you will have to download a free converter for them and let them be converted that way. It should work normally after that.
i too had the same prob... try convertin those songs tat are not copied to ur ipod... try convertin them to wav or ipod to play in ur ipod,,, try manually syncin these songs,..it also happens if the audio is in a very bad quality..
If the data on the iPod wasn't corrupted\deleted by the virus, you can use a program such as poddox to transfer the songs you have on there. If it has been deleted or otherwise corrupted, you can try using an undeletion program such as FreeUndelete but the chances that you get the music off the iPod are slim. Don't you have the music saved on your PC?
