Okay, recently I just got an iPod, yesturday infact. I have a problem. When I plug in the wire into my computer where it is supposed to be plugged, nothing happens. The iTunes window doesn't pop up and automatically download music like it is supposed to. It did last night, so I know I am plugging it into the right place. I unplugged the plug while it said "Do not unplug." I think this might have done some kind of damage. It was downloading songs that I didn't want to download on the iPod. Can anyone help me out here? This thing cost a ton of money, and I don't know if it is broken or not.
What does the Fox say?

You yanked it DURING a download! Man your crazy! :eek: :uhoh:
See if their isn't some kind of File checking utility for it. You've got half a song on there, and it can't understand it.
jAk I just got stupid and didn't read the manual. Now I have to buy a new cord, either that or I will just take Best Buy up on their warranty and get a new one.
I don't think buying a new cord will do anything, the cord should be fine.
FireWire? USB? Windows? iTunes MacOS? iTunes
I'd suggest u RESTORE ur ipod, click on the ipod updater.. and click restore NOTE: Restore [color=black]COMPLETELY ERASES[/color] your ipod and applies factory settings. Everything will be erased!
I can't restore it because the USB doesn't make a connection with the computer.
Happy to be back

Haha as I set up my ipod now I just figured out what is wrong. I was stumped as well as you. It is either that I shut it off and used to USB, which may have been what caused it.
I also went to Itunes, went to help and then Ipod help, and as I was searching a box came up in the background saying to put the name of my ipod in. Whichever one it was my problem is solved, and I hope this solves your problem.
Eh the problem has to be fixed by a professional. I screwed the thing up. It is good we got a warranty on it, or my parents would be pissed. Well, they are pissed, but oh well. We are going tommorow to fix it.

I have a Creative Zen Micro, and I'm very pleased with it.
Have you tried to send an email/call Apple?
jAk, Have u tried to connect it via firewire? from my experience, usb doesnt work very well..
try this way: 1. plugin the power adaptor, then reset the ipod.. Press the menu button & play button at the same time (press and hold em for 5secs)
2 then connect it to the computer again.. and restore the whole thing
hope it works
I take what n0e says way too seriously

The USB connection is still a little buggy, they should have stayed with firewire IMHO. I suggest you run the diagnostic mode. http://ipoding.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=3
