Ipod Classic not responding in i-tunes

My ipod classic is coming up with an error message in my i-tunes account stating there is a problem with this drive and that my ipod is not responding.
Also, before I plug my ipod into the computer the itunes is working fine then when I plug it in, it goes to a hault and this error message shows up.
I can't figure out why or what to do. We have uninstalled itunes and reinstalled and the same things are still happening.
I'm not sure if it is the new version of itunes that's the problem or if it's because our computer is now windows 8.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm hoping someone else has maybe come across this issue and would be able to help me.

I had this problem with my iPod Classic a few months ago. I ended up reverting my iPod back to factory settings.

  • Brand New 160GB Ipod Classic Not Responding to USB 2.0 connections Why?

    I bought it online from Apple as a Christmas gift back in September. It charged succesfully using a wall charger but when connected to Windows PC's and Laptops(also running windows)neither computer recognized the Ipod as a connected device. The Ipod itself did nothing when connected. It showed no error screen nor did it begin to charge as most do when you connect them to a PC. What is seen on the screen is all the different menus you have to choose from like music, video and what not. All the stuff your supposed to see. I have no idea why it is not being regoznied by any PC unless it is incompatable with USB ports. If that's the case what am I to do about it? Aside from not connecting to PC's it appears to be working fine. The preloaded games play as they should and it does nothing out of the ordianary. Wall chargers work with it but attempted connections to PC's with USB 2.0 ports garner no response from the device. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had difficulty making my 160GB Ipod classic recognized as a device by my PC. I pushed and held down the menu and cener buttons for a bout 5 seconds. The apple logo appeared and ever since then my computer sees it as a device and it works as it should.

  • Ipod classic not responding, reseting, or recognized by itunes or windows

    ipod will not turn on,rest, etc. screen flashes when hooked to computer, and when going through 5 steps of troubleshooting, the apple will briefly show up. Does not charge up after being hooked to computer. no longer recognized by itunes or window (all updated and reloaded)

    Nothing huh? No one's had this problem or this isn't fixable... oh well... if anybody comes up with anything I'll check in occasionally...

  • I want to add a CD to my IPod Classic, the CD has been loaded into my library but my iPod is not showing on i-tunes and I can't get the CD onto my iPod.

    I want to add a CD to my IPod Classic, the CD has been loaded into my library but my iPod is not showing on i-tunes and I can't get the CD onto my iPod.

    Well if your iPod is not appearing under Devices in iTunes when you have it plugged into a high powered USB 2.0 port, then that would explain why this newly loaded CD has not synced to it yet. 
    Have you carefully worked through each and every single suggestion in this Apple support document?

  • IPod does not respond at all when plugged in

    Alright, this topic is for people who have had this exact problem only. I don't want to get this confused with other problems and have people trying to help troubleshoot multiple problems and get things mixed up. Here's the problem.
    After updating to v1.1.2 of the iPod software, the iPod does not respond when plugged in. The iPod still works fine when not plugged in. It plays music and both the standard and shuffle play modes work accordingly. The problem is when you plug the iPod in, it doesn't charge and it doesn't mount. The orange blinking light does not come on. While plugged in, it works the same way as it does when you're listening to music with it. It's as if the iPod's USB connector is dead. Here is my original post and description of the problem.
    Alright, so here's my story. I bought my 512MB Shuffle in April. It has worked perfectly fine since I got it. Last night, I updated to v1.1.2 of the iPod software, clicked no when it asked if I wanted to restart, added some songs to the iPod, then restarted. As of this morning, I went to listen to some music while out for a bike ride, and I was greeted with the red battery light. I thought it was a bit odd since I had left it plugged in overnight. I figured, what the heck, I'll just plug it in and let it charge when I get back. When I got back, I plugged it into my PC and left for a while. I came back later and went to grab my Shuffle and I noticed it was cold, which was unusual after charging for a couple hours. I plugged it back in, a bit frustrated, and it never came up in Windows. I looked at the iPod plugged into the back of my PC (a high powered USB port) and sure enough, no orange light. No lights at all. I can still slide the switch to one of the play modes (standard play or shuffle) and play music for a couple seconds before it stops and says the battery's dead again. It works.. I mean it turns on and plays music, it's just not charging or mounting when I plug it in. I tried multiple computers and USB ports, none of which worked. I would really like some help with this considering it IS my only source of portable music and I'm not going to go pay $50 to talk to tech support or have it sent in for repairs. That's half of what it's worth.
    I've tried uninstalling all iTunes/iPod related software from the PC I normally use it on and reinstalling it. That didn't work. I also tried uninstalling again and installing the last known working version of the iPod software, still no results. The only thing I havn't tried is giving it a good beating... Not that I would. Anyways, I hope there's a solution to this that doesn't involve buying a new one.
    Here's a rundown of the computers I tested it with.
    500MHZ G4 Cube (384MB RAM/Mac OSX Tiger)
    400MHZ G3 iMac (384MB RAM/Mac OSX Tiger)
    4.2GHZ AMD 64-Bit running Windows XP Service Pack 2 (my PC)
    515MHZ Dell running Windows 2000 (256MB RAM)
    UPDATE: The BIOS won't recognize the iPod, so it has nothing to do with my computer. Somehow, installing v1.1.2 of the iPod software made it so the iPod itself has USB problems. The iPod works to the extent of playing music and showing the battery charge level. I get no response at all when I plug it in, from the computer or the iPod.
    I'm going to have to agree with Philip Harhay on this one. The original 10GB iPod I bought 3 years ago came with a full one-year warranty, no extra charges. I am disappointed to see the Shuffle only coming with a three-month warranty.

    Help! I just purchase an iPod Shuffle for my son's birthday and I cannot get the darn thing to show up on my iMac G5. I am running OS 10.4.2 and I have downloaded the latest iPod and iTunes software. When I try to restore my iPod to the factory settings it tells me to plug the iPod into the computer, but it is plugged in. I have tried different USB ports, too. I'm running out of ideas and so is the trouble shooting Apple site. I was hoping someone out there might have some ideas.
    It showed up at first and I transferred a few songs from the iTunes to the iPod but I couldn't get them to play, so I plugged it back into the USB and the icon never came up.

    The cord might be the case, but first, try these suggestions:
    Try putting your iPod into disk mode, then try connecting it to your computer again...
    <a href="How to put your iPod into disk mode</a>
    Do you have a wall charger? If so, then try connecting your iPod to that, and does it charge, or not?
    Have you checked this link out?:
    <a href="http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60941">iPod doesn't charge correctly

  • HT1483 my iPod is not responding. It is giving a message low battery, please wait and is displaying the apple support link

    my ipod is not responding. It is giving a message pleases wait low battery and showing me a link to apple support 

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    Well leave it for few minutes then try plugging it to the charger, if that does not work. Try restoring it from revious backup. This will change the software and hopefully earase the error. If that did not fix it i guess you need to take it to the Store for a check.
    I really hope this helps you. Let me know if it does. If not feel free to give me a shout. Best of luck.

    iPod touch not responding and has white screen. Tried to restore, drain battery and re-charge etc but still nothing. What can I do?

    Try what you have not tried so far. You may have tried all and the Apple store maybe in order.
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iPod fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • TS1425 I cannot eject my ipod classic after sync with i-tunes on my pc. It states some of the files are being used by other applications. What does this mean? How can I get it to eject?

    I cannot eject my new ipod classic after sync with i-tunes on my pc due, it states, to open files being used by another application. What does this mean? How can I get my ipod to eject?

    If it's a one-time "glitch," you can try restarting your computer with the iPod still connected.  Try ejecting again after the restart.
    If the problem recurs, you may have a process running (other than iTunes) that is accessing the iPod's storage.  When connected, the iPod's "disk" is like other mounted volumes.  This process may be some type of utility that continously monitors your mounted volumes for security reasons, such as to prevent access by malware.
    If you know of such a program that you have running in the background, there may be a setting to exclude your iPod's disk.

  • Font in iPod classic "Notes"

    I'd like to know what font (and font size) the iPod classic "Notes" module uses.

    I don't know but it's very small and I would love to be able to change it to something larger.
    It looks like Helvetica 8 but I'm not sure. The font used in the Table of contents is much more readable, so it should be possible to increase the font size in the notes. I'll ask Apple… I'm joking.

    To be more precise - works, but very, very bad. And around the icons on the display is visible GRAY line of width 1 px.

    p.s. Maybe this problem arose because I reflash iPod with old cable from the iPhone?
