Another iPod Problem

Recommended Posts

I must have gotten the iPod a drunkard made. First, it kept shutting off. Now, it wont stay off! I was watching TV, and the backlight caught my eye. It'd been doing it all day! It keeps turning back on. I could use some help on this one, but I'm guessing its broke. :cry:

hey

 

if you have a mac try running disk utility (applications>utilities>diskutility) on your ipod, i did this and i foud 1 error and when i repaired it, i noticed my battery started lasting longer.

 

if that does not work, or you have a windows machine and you have a 3G ipod or older, try running the scandisk built into the ipod by resting the ipod, (menu+select button) and when the apple logo come up, press the back+select+foreward buttons at the same time and wait for a disk icon to show up before you let go.

 

i hope this helps you

I tried resetting it, and it's still having the same problem. I wish the iPod mini had the scandisk built in. Is there anyway I could install it on the mini?

Hello,

I have had this happen on an iPod mini. I initially set up the iPod on my old G3 powerbook, and I think for a while it had some firewire issues with Panther OSX.

So I fixed the iPod by doing the iPod software factory restore on a WinXP PC.

 

So I guess just try another computer or one with the other operating system.

The iPod has been fine ever since.
