    think holding middle and top buttons in for 5 secs resets it.

    that justresets it, it doesnt format.

    even the ipod site doesnt have formating the ipod

    Cant you do via itunes ?

    May be thats resetting :roll:

    I reformatted it using my Windows XP laptop by plugging it into my USB port and--without opening iTunes--scrolled down the drives shown in Windows Explorer. I found my iPod displayed, right-clicked on it, clicked Format, and that did the job. I also reformatted my iPod using a command available in XPlay, an add-on Explorer-like program from Media Four. That worked too. I've talked with others who have used the iPod updater "Restore" option. That also scrubs all data from the iPod and reformats its hard drive.

    Pasted from another site

    i cant see where to go ? iv looked in some folders but cant find it



    god im stressing out maximum like,...got thousands of things to do and this is by far the least important

    when you plug it in, xp should create a new drive in below c drive somewhere
    yes/no ?

    Sorry to steal the thread, but is it possible to take songs FROM the ipod and put them on to your computer?

    Had to restore my laptop to factory settings and therefore lost itunes and all the songs I had on there. If I try to add anything to the ipod I am thinking the rest of the songs will be wiped?

    errrrrr where? lol

    unplug USB, plug in again, on left pane of windows explorer a new drive letter appears with "Saxos Ipod" or similar. Right click to get format option.
