    I have a ipod 80 GB that i got off of a friend that didn't use it anymore. He got a ipod nano and didn't want the bulk of the 80GB. I can not get it to sync the computer won't read it, just comes up saying new driver found then when i click on it, it says that it can't be found and i can't sync with itunes at all. Anyone know what to do can i take it into apple and have them try to fix it???

    My guess is that the iPod was formatted on the opposite OS that you use. Do you use a Macintosh? Then the iPod was probably formatted (first synced) on a Windows machine, or vice versa. I believe the only way to get your iPod to sync is to restore it, erasing all data from the device and then plugging it into your computer.
