Windows users having trouble with their iPods should locate a Mac user. Open the disk utility, hope your iPod appears there left hand sidehighlight it 2. Best of luck and success with it. Now I haven't fallen on my ass in years and I thought it was pretty damn funny.
I have not tried this solution myself, I heard that there were few successful cases that the users managed to get their iPod you must put your iPod in disk mode before connecting with a computer mounted by the computer, which was booted by a system startup disk.
One big whack and i heard the noise! Trey, tell me how to contact you. The 'hard bash on the table' was the only fix that actually worked. I tried looking for some technical information that would lend hand to a "normal" solution. It didnt work for me either: Took a good whack, and success!
