MobileViews iPod Troubleshooting Reference Page

Way back on May 11, 2006 (forever in Internet time), I posted a blog item on the MacDevCenter asking…

Cause for iPod nano Spontaneous Reset?

Although the cause of the problem is now known and resolved, this blog item continues to attract questions from people with, apparently, all kinds of iPod issues. It doesn’t seem appropriate to use that blog item as some kind of general iPod issues forum (especially since there are other sites better suited and more focused on that topic). So, I put together a page here (look at the left side bar area under Pages) titled…

MobileViews iPod info

…to help people find iPod troubleshooting information and discussion areas.

I’ve listed a small sampling of the questions my original blog item attracted on that page and will, as time permits, provide specific pointers for some or all of them. Hope this helps the various people with iPod issues that posted to my old blog item.

    My IPOD quit working after downloading the latest version of Itunes. All I get are colored wavy lines will not show any content. I can reset (sometime) the ipod to get to the diagnostic mode. It all passes the Diag. mode. When in diagnostic mode, the screen is clear and readable. Has anyone had this problem?

    It’s worth adding that if your iPod refuses to go into Disk Mode and you hear a noticeable clicking sound, it’s likely a faulty hard drive. If the unit is a Fourth Gen, however, the problem might just be corrosion on the HDD cable and will need cleaned periodically. Good luck & I hope this helps.

    Having trouble with Itunes – extremely slow – I have 60000 songs imported – is this the reason? Seemed like it was working well for awhile then just bogged down to where it takes 30 secs or more between clicks. I have an intel 1.73 GHz & 1.0 GB of RAM. Any advice?

    windows explorer shows my ipod to be nearly full, but I seem to have lost all my files when looking in itunes & also on the Ipod.
    Whats going on?
