    I think its dead?

    It all started the otherday when i was on the bus, i selected a song to play and the iPod froze.

    Then i done a hard restart ( Menu + Select ).

    The iPod was then displaying an error message saying " Use iTunes to restore this iPod " Or something like that.

    I done several hard restarts, and finally it was working again.

    Then yesterday, It happened again, But this time, alot worse.

    When i plug my iPod into my computer, it shows up in My computer but does'nt let me view any of the files or anything and also says that thier are 0 bytes on the disk.

    It shows up in iTunes sometimes, and says that i need to restore it, so when i click restore, it goes a little way and then says "The iPod "iPod" cannot be restored. An unknown error has occured (1418 (I Think) ).

    This iPod shows up fine in Device Manager But when i go to (Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Management) I get nothing! :| Its getting me really mad.

    Help please?

    You could try re-formatting it in my computer on windows, or disk utility in mac, and then try restoring through iTunes.

    I'm not an expert so id definately hang on and see what some others say.

    Hmm...

    I tired, but on my windows when i right click it and click format, the box does not popup, to let me format.

    I dont know what to do.

    I cant do anything because i have never experienced this problem before.


    Thanks
