I have a hand-me-down iPod Classic 80G and Windows Vista 32bit. I attempted to do a clear-and-sync process last night, and the sync hung up after about 1500 songs. I couldn't get it to do anything at all, including shut down. I ended up clicking on Eject, and hoped that it was safe to disconnect it from the USB2 port. Not good. I could hear the disc spinning with a light beeping type sound. I just left it going, hoping it would magically fix itself in the night. :thumbsup: This morning it is doing the same thing. I can attempt to reset it, and it will go to the Apple logo, but then goes back to a screen with a sad looking computer with a "!" sign. If I run the diagnostics on it, I get the same thing. I have reattached it to my computer, to a different USP port, but the computer doesn't even see that the device is there. Meanwhile the disc keeps spinning along. How can I stop this so I can start fresh with it? Oh, I currently have the version of iTunes on it. iTunes runs fine on the computer, it's just the iPod itself that is snarked. Thanks for your help...this is driving me nuts.
