    To get the iPod out of disk mode, you can reset the device. To do this, toggle the hold switch along the top on and then off, then press and hold both the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.


    What do you mean iTunes doesn't download the software? What software?  What are you trying to do exactly?

    Hinnakb, we are having trouble understanding your problem, from your Response

    1. Start what download?
    2. Install what and where?
    3. What notification?
    4. What problem occured?


    . When I connect it to itunes i have to start a download, but its not possible to install it, then there comes a notification, that a problem occured.



    By Disk Mode, do you mean getting this symbol?
