ipod problem

Recommended Posts



these step pertain to macs except for steps 3-5 i do not know much about ipods and windows systems.


1. run diskutility (application>utiilities>diskutility) on your macintosh hd to repair permissions.

2. run diskutility on your ipod. when i did this it found one error and i noticed it impoved my battery life. this might not work since you say your ipod wont mount but launch disk utilt and see if your ipod appears on the left.

3. try running diskutility from inside the ipod by resting (menu+select) and when the apple logo comes up press the back and foreward buttons at the same time and wait until the disk icon comes up before you let go.

4. try connecting your ipod to a differnt bus (if you were using firewire, use USB and vise versa)

5. make sure your ipod is connected to a full power bus. for example do not plug your ipod into the keyboard.

6. see if your ipod appears in apple system profiler (applications>utilities>system profiler)
