I use a 160 GB IPod Classic with ITunes on Win Vista. My Itunes library contains about 100 GB of music.


Recently, after installation of Itune 11.0.5 on Win Vista, the Ipod stopped syncing and began to show errors and hang up. I have tried 5 R, Format (Windows), Scan (Windows), Reset, and Restore again and again. After Restore, the Itunes and Windows Explorer hang or Itunes does not show the IPod at all. Sometimes, ITunes finds IPod corrupt repeatedly and prompts for restore. I have followed instructions in, without success.


Chkdsk initially did not find errors. But the disk check with the IPOD utility (Reset followed by Menu+Rewind), however shows very poor health of the disk. But why did the problem appear suddenly after Itunes update? Chance? Or is there any poosiblity that the update might have some flaw. Or can there be any other reason and hope for getting back the IPod?


Any help welcome.

iPod classic 160GB (Late 2009), Windows Vista, Other machines: IPad and IPhone
