View Full Version : Help with nano/ipod updater please?

Jul 16, 2006, 04:55 PM
Scratch my original question. I ran ipod updater, which seemed to work fine. But iTunes still wouldn't see my ipod, then froze up. So I forcequit iTunes and ejected my iPod (which took a solid minute to leave the screen), but it's still flashing "do not disconnect". Can anyone offer some insight as to what's up with my nano??

In iPod updater, did you choose "Restore"? ...If not, try that. :)

PS - Restoring the iPod will erase all of it's contents, so make sure you have all your songs (& any files) on your computer.

Any chance that your iPod is in disk mode?

Thanks guys. I got the ipod restored (using the restore option). Got my Nike+ up and running and re-synched all my music, but iTunes is still locking up on me. When I go to force quit iTunes, it closes the interface window, but the triangle still shows up under iTunes in the dock.

:mad: I want this thing to "just work"!!

My external drive (that houses my music and some other stuff) has been making some noise lately. Any chance that a HD going bad would cause these problems?

Do you have the most recent version of iTunes?

To check, from the iTunes menu, choose 'About iTunes' - it should say "6.0.5", or run Software update.

Yup, 6.0.5.

At what point does iTunes lockup on you?

Seemed to lock up when trying to access the hard drive. For the moment, I think that's where my problem is. I think my drive is going south on me. I have a new on in the mail as we speak, but might need to consider a second :rolleyes:

What happens if you disconnect the drive (quit iTunes first), and then re-launch iTunes? Does it still freeze?

It doesn't appear to, but then there's not much I can do to tax it without the hard drive attached.
