Reset iPod - how do I clear hard drive and start over?

I was having problems with my iPod synching so reset the iPod. Now my Ipod has no songs, but the 13.5 GB is still showing as on the ipod??? Now I cannot synch the library due to there being no room (have a 20GB) - how do I clear the ipod completely and start over? Thanks!

First up, make sure you have a mains power adapter before you start.

Then connect you iPod to your computer and run the updater, this gives you an option to completely trash the iPod.

When it asks you, plug it in to the mains and let it complete.

Total time should be about 3 - 5 mins.

Then reconnect to your PC, you may be prompted to rename the iPod. Then let all your songs resynch.

4g 20Gb
iTrip "comin' at ya" on 87.7 FM
PowerMac 8.5.
Dell 3Ghz P4 XP Pro SP2.
Windows 2000 Advanced server SP4.

If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all.
