I received an ipod classic for my 60th birthday, one month ago. I went to turn it on this afternoon and it would not go on. I tried to reset it, and nothing happened. i have been looking in the manual, and tried all the suggestions, but nothing seems to work. what do i do now? I am not what you would call technically saavy, and I am extremly disappointed that the product is behaving in such a way. HELP!

Mrs. Zacherman, Try plugging your Ipod into the USB port on your computer to charge.

Tiana.October 20th, 2009 at 3:15 AM

I’ve had my ipod for quiet awhile now, it’s not mine it was given to me by my brothers friend.
I’ve come across a problem with it, i was in class and it froze so i reset it as i normaly do but when it came back on it had a sad face. Can someone please tell me what to do i’ve tried everything. I really don’t want to get a new ipod. Some information might be helpfull. Thank you.

Phil GagerOctober 20th, 2009 at 8:10 AM

I recently bought an Ipod and my expectation was that when I plugged it into the usb I would be prompted with steps to add software to my computer. Bottom line is that I still have not installed it. What is wrong besides the fact that I am semi computer illiterate?

Phil KimbleOctober 24th, 2009 at 11:03 PM

when you are older ipods can be very frustrating, but a source of help comes with grandchildren or their friends. i am lucky i have ten of them, but they all say differnt things, i am seventy two but getting there, have now downloaded 194 tunes from web site and cd,s, mainly old dance music,

My husband wants to merge his iTunes account with me and our daughters. His account is under bbward@triad.rr.com. My account is under bward53@triad.rr.co
. Is there a way to do this without losing the apps he already purchased? Also, when he tries to access his account under bbward@triad.rr.com, it says the account has been disabled due to security reasons but he still gets pop ups on his iPhone to update the apps for this account.

i have received i-pod classic 160GB as a gift.
First of all, it gave me hard time to get to English language from an asian language,
Secondly, it is difficult to change minutes in time setting.
It took long to change date and year.
Is that a bad ‘new gift’?
I am embarassed to tell this to person who gave this gift.
I spent almost an hr to get to this stage!!
Can not proceed.
Manual does not say what to do when click wheel does not fuction as it should.

My ipod and BOSE Sounddock were purchased in UK. Ipod model MB739 and I have been using not very frequently. Until last week the Bose system was working well. 4 or 5 days ago suddenly the Bose system has stopped playing. However I am able to hear the music through my ear phone. As per BOSE manual it says your ipod must have the latestversion of iPod software installed. Please let me know how to upgrade it software. Thank you
