I have a 160gb iPod classic.. When I connect my iPod to iTunes, all it does is freeze my iTunes and my PC completely.. I've uninstalled iTunes and reinstalled it and that didn't help... Any ideas on how to fix this?

I guess I would recommend the following, but can't promise success:

  • When you uninstall, then reinstall iTunes, be sure you're getting the latest version from here.
  • Make sure the iPod itself is functional--are all the songs intact and playable?
  • Do you have access to another computer that you could connect it to and see if the same thing happens?
  • Do you have access to another 30-pin to USB Cable you could try it with?

Maybe your computer is the problem, not the iTunes. Do you experience lag on your pc?

Thanks Rafagon.. I did all of the above... I went to the Apple site for iTunes.. All good there.. iPod is functional otherwise.. iPod works on another computer.. And I've tried another USB... Thanks for the suggestion... Thought there may have been another magical power out there... I'll be ok with waiting and using another computer ::SIGH::

The pc is ok with everything else... iTunes works fine up until I plug in an Apple product...

Boot into disk mode, format to FAT32, reboot, run iPod Updater and restore.
