I have the same problem with a Nano. The Apple discussion boards have some help, but nothing that resolved my problem.

Have you tried the 5 R's?
Reset, Retry, restart, reinstall, restore.


Here's a troubleshooting guide, scroll down the page to #7.
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1345

There are a lot of people with a similar problem unresolved.

You can DL a manual for your iPod in PDF format from Apple.

One workaround was to uninstall iTune 8, and install iTunes 7. That seemed to have worked for one person. Again, on the Apple Discussions board.

You might have to send it out for repairs. That's what I have to do.


Good luck.

please disconnect and reconnect the Ipod then try again.

Basically the same thing happens to me. The message says the iPod is corrupt and that I should restore. So I click OK, and the option to restore
disappears. This happens over and over.

I'll step back and watch this thread in hopes that someone has a fix. (And if, in my travels, I find a fix I'll post it here).

If these guys here can't fix it, nobody can.

1. Remove iTunes using Add/Remove programs.
2. Trash these folders:
C:\Program Files\iPod\bin
C:\Program Files\iTunes
3. Restart the computer.
4. Reinstall iTunes.


this may work for you, i tried it and it didn't work but it's a shot x

That would be a hard disk error of some sort. Hopefully it's still under some type of warranty.
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.
