Ipod classic 160GB - Diagnostic Mode Tests

Please help, I have had no end of problems with my new ipod. It breaks down every 2nd or 3rd time i connect via usb. I have tried the diagnostic mode to see if it is a hardware issue, but when it prompts to 'detect usb' or 'detect FW' i have no clue as to what im supposed to do. I have tried disconnecting the usb and reconnecting but nothing seems to happen?? Also, im assuming 'FW' means firewire, but im sure the 160gb doesnt have fie wire and if it does what is it and where is it???
Please, please, please help this is driving me insane.

Right-click on your desktop, then click the Advanced tab. Then you should see on the lower left where it says screen resolution. Set this to 1024x768. This will allow you to see the setup assistant.

Hold in play/pause, and then connect to PC

I don't completely understand the "Firweire" reference. The manual (and logic) does not indicate that a firewire connection would work. Plain old USB for this device.

I have a new ipod classic 160GB which I am trying to connect to a 2010 Ford Focus via the USB connection. When I connect using the same USB lead that I attach to my laptop the radio screen shows track...


Hi Ben3230, I have the same problem with my ipod nanno (2nd gen). If I connect the nanno up to the usb socket in the centre console of my 2010 Ford Focus, the tacks display on the screen but no sound. I purchased a 3.5mm jack and connected that from the ipod to the 3.5mm jack in the centre console (as well as the usb lead) and suddenly music. Hope that solves your problem.

Cannot turn my i pod touch on


your ipod seems to be having problem like damaged system software. you can reinstall your ipod software but will erase anything on your ipod, don't worry you can sync them again. here's how to do it.
make sure itunes is open and connected to the internet.

Hold down your ipod power button, then hold down the home button too, this will force the ipod to restart and in restore mode.
the screen will go dark and restart, now release the POWER BUTTON while still holding down the HOME BUTTON.
It will show an itunes icon and a USB icon saying connect to itunes.
NOTE: you might have to do this procedure many times in order to show the itunes and usb icon.

Now release the HOME BUTTON and connect to itunes, it will erase your ipod and download software from apple to install on your ipod.
this might take some time, wait for it to complete the task and now you are ready to use your ipod again.
Please rate. Thank you

Ipod touch v2 stuck at itunes connect


your ipod was jailbroken and now it is not.
no worries, go to quickpwn.com

Download the quickpwn software and jailbreak your ipod.
It's pretty easy,

but first what I would do, is download the itouch firmware version you want to restore to.
the file name will be something like this: iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw

Put your ipod in DFU mode:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
Restore it by pressing Restore and Shift at the same time. This will allow you to select the ipod firmware you downloaded.
Restore it and then do your jailbreak.
It will ask for the same firmware version you just restored to.
find it on your computer and do the J/B
I have the firmware on my computer, shoot me an email and i will send it,just let me know if you have a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen

If this post helps you please leave a vote in fixya

I pod wont connect to itunes


Try another computer just for the kicks of it and see if does the same. Your computer has this little program deep down call iTunes helper that's suppose to link the USB iPod to iTunes. If it's not working right nothing will happen when connected. If the iPod works on another machine, iTunes helper is the problem or also even bad USB port could be the problem. Send me an update and I'll keep helping you troubleshoot. - Scotty

30 GB Ipod Video Problem - Its locked


To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
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.

Ipod not recognized by computer or itunes


I struggled with this issue for a while and finally found a post that helped me. Hold menu and the center buttons until the iPod turns off. Then, immediately hold the left and center buttons to pull up the iPod diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the option "Reset" and select it. My iPod was finally recognized by iTunes. Good luck :)
