I recieved a 160 gig iPod Classic for Christmas. Part of the deal was, though, that I had to give my old 30 gig ipod to my mom. Because I am on a Mac, and she runs a PC, I tried to reformat the ipod. iTunes said that it couldn't be restored, and ejected the ipod. However, the software was sent to the ipod, and it began to install. Now, the ipod shows the apple logo, which appears for about 3 seconds, blinks off, and comes back on again. Help much appreciated!!! iTunes does not recognize the iPod on either the mac, or the pc. EDIT: Fixed. I put it in Disk Mode (Reset iPod, then when Apple Logo appears, hold Center and Play buttons) - iTunes recognized it right away.
