How to restore iPod

  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  10. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

How did you lose the music? If you lost it from your computer, I'm not sure if you'll be able to get it back. Otherwise, there should be a file labeled "Itunes music" on your computer somewhere. Just use the search option in "my computer" to locate it. Most of your music should be in there, if not all of it.

SOURCE: getting music directly off Ipod nano 2gig

When you plug the iPod into the computer, a window may or may not pop up, depending on what you told Windows to do with the player the first time you connected it. If the window does not pop up automatically, double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the iPod, and you should see a folder that says Music. If this folder is missing, that may explain your symptoms. Right click a blank area of the Nano window, and select New --> Folder --> and create a folder named "Music". Try syncing again, and see if it works.

All of a sudden after 2 years annot get my iPod to appear on computer. A sign comes up that says "The iPod "Lois' iPod" is synced with another iTunes Library. Do you want to erase this iPod and sync with...


This happens some times the computer has lost the record that the ipod was synced with this computer.

Because the ipod can only be synced with one computer at a time your are getting this message.

if you look in your itunes music library and all the muisc is still there then choose the "erase and sync option" this will erase the ipod and re- sync with this computer -

if your muisc is gone you have a much larger problem you need to search your computer for your missing music then add it back to itune when you find it by :

In itunes you go to the upper left to : File > add Folder to Library > and choose the folder the music is in this will re- add your music to the libray then you can " "erase and sync"

If all you music is gone off your computer a only on your ipod your going to have to download a free ipod rip program to remove all you muisc and put it back into your library. there are free ones you can downalod but they are hard to find I have used www.ipodrescue.com and it worked for me

good luck !

Unfortunately, my son lost his IPOD. How do I


You can't use itunes to transfer his music to the phone, but you can do it manually. The matrix supports a microSD card, so you would need one the size of his library at least. If you have a microSD card, I'll assume you have a card reader. Just go to My Music on the computer and there should be a folder called iTunes, and within that folder one called iTunes Music. Just copy the contents of that folder to the microSD card and then put it in the phone. He should now have his music on the phone.

Transfer music from ipod back to library


it is completely possible to use your ipod to transfer music to a new computer.

Now these steps may vary if you have Window's Vista and not Window's XP. However, I will post step by step instructions below each item just in case you are unsure on how to do any of it.
First, on the computer, (without anything else open) click on the start menu and open your control panel. {If you have Vista you will need to click on classic view in the left panel of the control panel when it opens} Then go to Folder Options and click on the View tab at the top of that window, now select Show Hidden Files and Folders. Once that's done go ahead and close out of all windows.
second, you will want to put the ipod into disc mode.

Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.



After doing this connect your ipod to your computer. If it auto pop's itunes, just wait for the ipod to show up in the devices area and then shut itunes.

Third, open your start menu again, and open My Computer. Once the My computer window is open double click on you ipod icon. Once your ipod opens you will see several folders. You will click and drag the itunes music folder to the new folder created on your desktop. This step may take a while if your ipod is fully loaded. Once complete your music will now be on your computer.

From here, all you will need to do is open itunes. If the music is not auto loaded into itunes, click on File in the top tool bar and open Add Folder To Library. Then browse to the new folder created on your desktop and select it. This will bring the newly added music on the computer into itunes and you will be ready to what ever else you wish to do

All the best John
