just run the iPod updater (you can get it free from apple.com), and it will format it for your windows machine. If your computer isn't recognizing it, it's a problem with the iPod or the computer.

it should be on your windows computer. if you installed the CD that came with it on your windows computer.

Just run the ipod updater and press restore. It's as easy as that.




30gb iPod photo- has been sent to my aunt. She loves it, and is very careful with it, as I've heard. Hopefully I can get it back when the battery dies or the hard drive fails.

30gb iPod video- just got it as of 12/13/05 YAY!!!

You don't need a CD......all the software can be downloaded from the apple site. Where did you get the iPod from originally?
