Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 9:54 AM (in response to beaconfield)Same problem with my iPod Classic 120Gb.. can't restore, can't do anything..
Warranty still running .. ipod was bought at Colorado USA, but right now in Russia..
Anyone have solution ? (crying.. so many photos gone.. and 250$)iPod Classic 120 Gb, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 1:47 PM (in response to beaconfield)Same problem for me too and I'm also out of warranty. Looks like this is a problem with iTunes 9 that needs to be fixed. Until then though, I guess I'm stuck without any music.Inspiron 1521, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 6:32 PM (in response to jwcoffeeman)Quick update:
I called the Apple Tech Support line and they looked at the apple support documents regarding how to exhaust all options, e.g. (use different USB port, restart computer, use different computer, try try try again).
Nothing worked for me and they told me since my iPod was out of warranty to just buy a new one since a repair job would cost about the same if not more for something similar.
So I bit the bullet and bought a new iPod Nano 16GB.
Nothing you can do I guess.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 6:35 PM (in response to beaconfield)As i mentioned before, this is not really "answered" but resolved. The bottom line is that my iPod was out of warranty and the hard drive was corrupt beyond repair.
had to buy a new one...

Currently Being ModeratedSep 11, 2009 2:00 AM (in response to beaconfield)Well, all sounds bad.. but I still have warranty..
I tried all most everything (expect hummer) - nothing helps.. It looks like iTunes 9 somehow damaged iPod's file system..
It's very sad, that Apple "just don't care" coz we already paid the money..iPod Classic 120 Gb, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 11, 2009 9:15 AM (in response to beaconfield)If the unit is in need of repair, you can send it to Apple, or some other source for repair. If you are handy with this sort of thing, you even might be able to fix it yourself. Google is your friend.
It seems that there could be issues with this version of iTunes, as others seem to have the same sort of problem, so you might just have to sit tight and see if Apple comes up with an update to iTunes, or just cuts the cord on older iPods.
Not sure what the Apple Store can do for you, as I personally void all warranties just by owning things!home-made, Other OS, you don't ask how sausages are made.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2009 10:48 AM (in response to beaconfield)Sorry, but that's not a resolution to me.
The exact same thing happened to me that happened to you, Matt. I'm two months out of the the year-long warranty and there's NO WAY IN **** that someone's going to tell me to buy a new one because it's two months past. Especially because it was WORKING FINE before I tried this POS iTunes update.
How are the forums here? Are there people that actually check these problems?iPod Classic 160g, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2009 1:45 PM (in response to beaconfield)I stumbled onto this thread after I hooked up my iPod video to try and synch it. I too got the "Corrupted iPod" message. I usually don't eject my iPod, as it doesn't disconnect from Windows cleanly. After going through a few steps, I have my iPodsynched & ready to go. (Perhaps it's just a bug in the new version of iTunes, which I have to admit is more aesthetically pleasing).
I clicked the "Eject iPod" button in iTunes.
I selected "USB Mass Storage Device" from the safely remove hardware wizard
I reset the iPod (Switch to HOLD & back, then hold down MENU & center buttons until screen turns off)
Unhooked iPod from data cable
Hooked iPodback up
iTunes recognized and synched...
I don't know if this will help anyone, but I'm hoping that it will. Post back letting everyone know if it succeeds or fails.Dell Dimension 3000, Windows XP Pro

Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2009 2:50 PM (in response to beaconfield)Wow, glad I looked at this. I was just about to make the update to iTunes 9, but from the sounds of it I had better hold off a little while. I am not ready to have to reload two iPhone and a iPod again. Sorry you all had probs, but thanks for posting.Intel Quad4, Windows Vista, x64
Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2009 9:20 PM (in response to jodytech)Similar problem with my Ipod touch (1st gen). Itunes 9 updated and sync'd with my Ipod I unplug it and it doesn't contain any of my music or videos...I plug it back in and it tells me it has been corrupted... Restore process is no go, so I have a brick...one month outside of the warranty.
Best part was 9 trashed my old restores and didn't create a new one.Windows Vista
