My Ipod needs help! please! ^^
I have an Ipod Classic, 80 gig. It's over 3 years old. I have a Samsung SensR410 laptop, also over 3 years old, running Vista Home Premium 32bit but '64bit Compatible' (I don't want to replace either if I can help it.)
I had iTunes 8.
One day my Ipod stopped working.
I formatted it.
I uninstalled iTunes.
I re-installed iTunes.
But the latest version refused to be loaded on my PC. I chose English as the language, but because I bought my laptop in Korea, some parts of the installation were in Korean, so I tried to make good guesses about what to click. I uninstalled it, following the steps here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923
I re-installed iTunes 8. It loaded, but when I plugged in my Ipod, it said that the Ipod needed to be updated/restored, 'click to contact updater' but then it could not contact the server. I tried: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1814but
it didn't help. So basically, my Ipod's software needs to be updated, but it's impossible to connect it to the server via iTunes. I tried to download something else to update it, but that didn't work.
I tried downloading iTunes 9, it loaded, but the Ipod would not connect.
Help, please! I think it's something to do with Vista Home Premium that iTunes 10 won't load, and I think it's something to do with my Ipod that it won't connect.
When I open the Ipod in windows explorer, there is nothing in in it, zip, not 1 file. I feel like I need the 'program files' that should be in there... but can't find them anywhere online! help please!
Where could I have it repaired?
