Ipod problem... Got me stumped
Ok i have a 4th gen ipod that hasn't given me any problems till now.
The problem: It will not play and it will not dock in my computer. It shows up in the system tray, but it won't be recognized in my computer, itunes, or ipod updater. The ipod will go to disk mode when hooked up and the hard drive ect spins up but my computer won't load it. Infact it locks up startbar, updater, ect unless i unplug the ipod, even when it says do not disconnect.
it is fully charged, when i try to reset it, the apple logo pops up but then it just disappears or sometimes the error folder icon pops up and then goes away. If i could get it connected to the Ipod updater i would try to restore it. I've followed apples faq's and tech articles that seem to apply; tried the firewire and usb, reinstalled the ipod software and itunes ect. I've tried shuting down all the background software before mounting, spyware and antivirus software ect...
This is really frustrating me...
