I really enjoy my iPod, but it’s hardly perfect. Here are my top troubleshooting tips.
- Open iTunes before trying to sync your iPod with your desktop. It usually works if you plug in your iPod before opening iTunes, but you can’t count on it.
- If you can’t get iTunes to recognize your iPod after several attempts, reboot your desktop and try again.
- When your iPod is locked up, you can reboot it by holding the middle and top (menu) buttons down at the same time for maybe 10 seconds.
