Photos (thumbnails) in iPod Classic got "corrupted"

I have no idea of how to describe with words, this is a shot of what's going on with my iPod.
http://bdweb.no-ip.com/Images/iPodClassicPhotos.jpg
It happens on some photos in my iPod, they can be viewed as normal pictures by clicking the centre button, but the thumbnail are corrupted.
I've already tried to restore the iPod, which is no good. All pictures were synchronised from iPhoto.
Thanks!

Make sure that all your software (iTunes, iPhoto, and the software on the iPod) is up-to-date.
Then, go through the restore process once more...
Restore iPod
Everything should be deleted off the iPod, and don't put the pictures back on yet. Uncheck the option to synchronize pictures. Let the iPod update with all of your music and eject it when it's done.
Now, go back and reconnect the iPod and put the pics on. See if they load properly.
Finally, does everything work okay in iPhoto? Are there any errors, weird messages when syncing w/ iTunes, etc.?

  • My iPod Classic got corrupted!! :(

    Ok so yeah my ipod classic got corrupted and it said that I have to plug it into iTunes to restore it and when I do that iTunes says that it is unable to restore the iPod. So i tried it on both my macs and both the iTunes say the same thing!! Please help??

    Hi THEAnswer-78,
    Thanks for the question. Based on what you stated, it seems like iTunes is giving the message that the iPod is corrupt. I would recommend that you read this article, it may be able to help the issue.

  • HT1320 My IPOD classic is corrupted.. how can this be fixed?

    My IPOD Classic is corrupted... how can this be fixed?

    You know sometimes these forums miss the obvious. I have an iPod Classic 160Gb, 6th Gen (MC297), Been in use for some time now, over 10,000 albums plus photos/videos etc. Yesterday I was in the process of adding another album (sync) when for no reason that I could fathom became corrupted, as explained on these posts. I had all the error messages (error 1439), I put it into diagnostic mode, the result being that my HDD could not be accessed, so should be replaced.
    Now I tried all the advice here, including attempting to reformat via two different PC's (with iTunes) umpteen times. Until I came across a paragraph within the comments section of a YouTube video on replacing the HDD.
    It said to put the iPod into Disk Mode, first; Reset by holding the menu & centre buttons at same time for 7-10 seconds. Once it reboots immediately hold the centre and Pause/Play buttons, after a few seconds it should display Disk Mode screen.
    Reconnect to PC, when it shows as a drive, right click choose format, default settings, type in name iPod, select start and it should format (mines did), yet I had tried all of the formatting before without success. Once done restart iTunes and you will be taken to the restore iPod option, (it had failed to restore many times before prior to using disk mode), success, just follow prompts, make sure you are connected to the PC that holds your library for re-syncing. iTunes will let you know if you need to change that anyway.
    iPod in the sync process just now and looks to be doing the job, much better that trying to get the case open to replace the HDD that I don't have yet and don't know which type or where to get one. So would advice you folk on here, to get your iPod into 'Disk Mode' especially if you have had the HDD error or unable to restore/format messages.
    Never saw any of this method on Apple support.

  • How to I copy photos from my ipod classic back onto my pc?

    How to I copy photos from my ipod classic back onto my pc? My hardrive recently crashed and the photos on my ipod are the only copies I have! The photos were synced onto th ipod originally - not saved or copied as file transfer.

    See Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device. I'm not sure which of the recovery tools can do photos offhand, but unless you chose the option to include full res. originals when you loaded the device then what they extract will be fairly low res. If you did opt for full res. then they should be visible on the iPod's drive when viewed in disk mode.

  • My ipod classic got wet back in August.. it seemed to work fine for about a month, but recently is not working at all..screen appeared to get cloudy and then it just stopped working. thanks.

    my ipod classic got wet back in August.. it seemed to work fine for about a month, but recently is not working at all..screen appeared to get cloudy and then it just stopped working. thanks.

    Most likely, water damage.
    You can try putting your iPod in a tupperware, half filled (maybe half inch) with rice grains, close the cover for about a week.
    If you have done this, as soon as it got wet, higher chances of success, now looks like the water moisture is getting to the LCD screen.
    Then you can always bring it to Apple Genius bar, for a an overhaul. (may cost you half the price of a new iPod classic.)

  • I've transferred photos to my ipod classic from my laptop. But how can I transfer JPEG images to ipod?

    I've transferred photos to my ipod classic from my laptop. But how can I transfer JPEG images to ipod?

    Hello, Blondet787. 
    JPEG photos are compatible with your device.  As long as these images are in the same folder as your pictures, then they should sync.  Below, I have included a couple articles that show you how to sync this data to your iPod.

    The article below is a little more detailed and designed more as a storage solution for media on your iPod Classic.

  • My Ipod classic is corrupted and I only get the red X on the screen...Cannot move to any other screens. Any ideas on fixing without paying Applw?

    My Ipod classic is corrupted and I only get the red X on the screen...Cannot move to any other screens. Any ideas on fixing without paying Applw?

    Unfortunately there isn't. A Red X is usually an indicator that the HDD has failed, if you are unable to restore the device using iTunes and also not able to reformat using windows prior to restoring then a hardware repair is needed. If your iPod is out of warranty then the pricing you pay is to have the iPod replaced not repaired. You're looking at 129.00 - 179.00 plus shipping depending on the gen.

  • I can't sync photos to my Ipod Classic...help?

    I've just got a new Ipod Classic and I can sync songs and Podcasts OK, but I can't sync any photos. The "sync" symbol looks active when I'm sending the photos over, but when I check my Ipod later...nothing at all!!! It's driving me nuts...suggestions anyone?

    I had the same Problem, very frustrating until you realize what it was. My simple fix was!
    On your IPOD go to
    Settings
    Main Menu
    Photos (probably set to off)
    Turn ON
    Should do it

  • I can't see photos on my iPod classic

    My PC crashed and I was trying to copy photos from iPod classic back to PC, however the photos now appear as black squares on the iPod.

    This was my biggest problem when I got my first iPod (30GB 5thGen)... I thought that video's would just sync straight on there no probs, was I ever more wrong...
    I got over this hurdle a few way's....
    Mac: For mac you can download mediafork or handbrake, they will both convert dvd's and sum other files straight to iPod format... (although these take a while)... On a rare occasion I have got iMovie or similar,(depending on version of MAC), all you have to do is export as a Mp4...
    Windows: Mediafork and handbrake both work gud,(but they take sum time), the one I found the best was Nero recode... It converts the video files "all" into .Mp4 ready for iPod viewing, it also puts your video's straight onto your iPod if connected...
    There are sum other free converter's that will work gud, but the best ones are the ones you pay for... (unfortunately)

  • After iTunes 9 upgrade iPod Classic is corrupt without ability to restore

    I am upset right now, so this will seem a bit harsh. I do not really care if this has been posted, it needs to be said again.
    I upgraded my Windows Vista x64 PC to iTunes 9 today and attempted to sync my iPod Classic 80GB to iTunes. It failed and it became apparent after doing some searching online that the hard drive was corrupt. After connecting my iPod to the PC again, iTunes told me that the iPod was corrupted need to be restored. After downloading the update and extracting it, the iPod restore process begins and then fails.
    I've tried to restore my iPod on Mac and Windows, and I've tried all the recommendations from Apple regarding the error that I get, something about the restore failed due to an unknown error 1439. Thanks Apple for unknown errors.
    This is a relatively good condition iPod that is slightly out of warranty and I need to know what I can do to get it repaired. It worked just fine this afternoon and I've never had a problem with it, ever. I know it's a functional iPod I just need a restore but it won't work for me.
    Will the Apple Store nearest me help me with this, or will they tell me to take off b/c it's out of warranty????
    Questions needing answers.
    Thanks for any and all help.
    -Matt

    I stumbled onto this thread after I hooked up my iPod video to try and synch it. I too got the "Corrupted iPod" message. I usually don't eject my iPod, as it doesn't disconnect from Windows cleanly. After going through a few steps, I have my iPodsynched & ready to go. (Perhaps it's just a bug in the new version of iTunes, which I have to admit is more aesthetically pleasing).
    I clicked the "Eject iPod" button in iTunes.
    I selected "USB Mass Storage Device" from the safely remove hardware wizard
    I reset the iPod (Switch to HOLD & back, then hold down MENU & center buttons until screen turns off)
    Unhooked iPod from data cable
    Hooked iPodback up
    iTunes recognized and synched...
    I don't know if this will help anyone, but I'm hoping that it will. Post back letting everyone know if it succeeds or fails.

  • Display photo details on iPod Classic?

    Using: iPod Classic v2.0.1, iTunes v10.1.2.17, Windows XP.
    Is there a way to display any photo details on the iPod Classic? Specifically, I would like to display a caption (either from some EXIF field or from the .jpg file's Properties dialog) or at least display the original .jpg filename.
    I want to be able to call up the details/caption for the photo that I'm currently viewing. The information does not have to automatically appear over the bottom of the image (but that would be a nice setting to be able to enable!).
    Note: I do not want to create a video slideshow.
    Thanks.

    Is there a way to display any photo details on the iPod Touch? On the iPad?
    Yes, but not without the help of 3rd Party applications from the App store.
