Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode

Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.


Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"

If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.

If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

yup...or do it through iTunes...its in the section where you select which folders & playlists you use...takes a few mins and wipes everything on the iPod...then iTunes sticks it all back on

Mine did that a few weeks after buying it.
Tried all the options to get to work so contacted Apple direct and they sent out a courier to get it repaired.

Took 5 days from phoning them to getting it back in my hands.

cant remember exactly how to do it...BUT you click on the icon when you attach your iPod...the bit on the left that would say 'ODB's iPod'...in the same way when you add folders, playlists etc...think its RESTORE or something along those lines
