Well, I tried plugging my ipod into my computer and I first got a message saying that it needed to be reformatted for windows and asked if I'd like to restore it. I also got another message saying that Itunes has detected an ipod that appears to be corrupted. Does anyone know how to solve these problems? I've tried all I know to do including resetting, but that did not work. Please help me out, thanks.

There usually is an option to refresh the software on the Ipod - I would try that first. If Itunes doesn't give you the option, you can download the software from apple's website. (Ipod updater, I believe).

I think they should change the name to IPOS......

Well, I've tried resetting my ipod, put it into disc mode, and & finally broke down and restored it to factory settings, & the same message is still coming up saying that it is either corrupted, or it needs to be reformatted. I'm not sure what else I can do.

you might need to change the drive letter assigned to the ipod on the computer. a believe i had a similar message after remapping the drive letter assigned to my ipod. when i plugged it back in it stated that i needed to reformat it or reset it & that this would cause all data to be lost.

if you right click on the "my computer" icon - then select "manage" - then select "disc management" your ipod should be shown here if plugged in..

if you right click on it, there should be an option to change the drive letter. setting this back to what it was took care of the issue for me.. try a few letters under the "c" drive i.e. "d, e, f" once you assign the new drive letter disconnect it & pulg it back in.. it should now show up in itunes..

hope this helps..

I believe I've fixed the problem. I completely uninstalled itunes and everything with it, and I restored the ipod to factory settings, plugged it back in, and it's working just fine. The message only popped up when it was plugged into the computer, so I think it was a softward problem, not the ipod itself.
