Resetting iPod to factory settings leaves it as a disc drive and restoring in iTunes gets error 1439.  Disk drive use appears to work okay but how to disable it not working.  Any suggestions?


It seems to not have any space for music since all space is assigned for disk use.

iPod classic, Windows 7, USB 2.0 ports
