You need to install iTunes on your laptop to be able to syncronize your iPod with your laptop.

Otherwise your laptop is not capable to show the content in your iPod.


Apple iPod... | Answered on Sep 29, 2011


follow the below procedures;

You can unlock your ipod with a computer by pluging the iPod into your computer. I mean the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.

Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal, remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

If the above doesn't work, you can also try this;

Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.

I hope the above is helpful.....

Good luck.

Welcome to Fixya. The "the USB device attached has malfunctioned" is a common issue of a usb device that is connected to the computer. If you can still use the ipod properly it seems that there is something that has been detect by windows that is malfunctioning on the iPod when you connect it. There are only 3 possible reasons. First is the cable that you are using and the other one is the port on the ipod where you connect the usb cable and the 3rd is the motherboard needs to be rebooted. You can try to change the usb cable or try to use the steps below and see if you will encounter the same error.
Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power. First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices! So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
If you are using a laptop you need to remove the battery to drain the power on the motherboard. Please let me know what happen so that we can continue troubleshooting.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks

Hi dbb divine...

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Just so you know which type of iPod you need parts for, you have a 30 gb fifth generation iPod video. It sounds like your jack is faulty and not getting a good connection. A new jack from an online store is about $40. Just type in iPod parts in your search engine. Rapid Repair is at the top and they will do free diagnostics and they sell parts and have online tutorials showing how to very carefully replace these parts.

You will need to hook the iPod back up to your computer and do a restore through iTunes

Apple iPod... | Answered on Jul 26, 2011

Try hooking it back up to your computer and doing a restore. This solves a lot of strange problems on iPods.
Be advised it will wipe the unit clear and you'll need to restore all your music.

Apple iPod... | Answered on Jul 26, 2011

Your assessment seems to be correct. The problem is most likely in the iPod.

The stereo headphone connector (called a "jack") may have a broken connection, most likely on the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) inside the iPod. You may try carefully wiggling the plug in the jack and see if the sound comes on and off. Do it with the volume low so you don't damage the amplifier in the iPod.

I have opened them up before. It can be done, but is not particularly easy, and must be done carefully.

If you are technically inclined, or know someone who is, open the iPod and examine the jack connections to the PCB. If there is a break, it can be repaired by soldering a wire across the trace on the board.

If you're not able to do this and don't know anyone who can, it will probably have to be professionally repaired if the warranty has expired.

Good luck!

If you are using the same usb cable and did try another mp3 player then it works,it seems charging terminal of you ipod doesn't responding,it might be corroded or might some charging pins are missing,broken or not align located at the bottom.

Please Do this basic steps.

* Clean the charging slot with the use of dry toothbrush,gently brush the entire area of the connector so this will contact the both interface. never use wet toothbrush cause might got short circuit.

* Check all pins in the slot if it is complete or intact. if one or two pins are missing or broken, it takes malfunction to system and connection. You can use magnifying lens to be able to see all pins clearly.

* If the charging slot is totally broken,just advising you to bring it to the apple service center near you for the parts replacement.

Hope this simple guide will help you... Thanks for visiting Fixya.

hold menu and middle button at the same time for about 10 seconds and should restart fine

Apple iPod... | Answered on Jul 04, 2011

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Thank you
