Alright, something happened with my iPod to where it won't sync and needs to reset to factory settings. I, however, do not have Internet access at home (I'm typing this from school), and the school computers have lessened privileges, so I'm not allowed to install iTunes here to fix the problem, which seems to be the only real solution Apple can offer as I've seen in the Support pages here.

Does anyone know how to solve this? Is there some sort of third-party software that can reset an iPod Classic without requiring Internet access?

    Unfortunately, you need internet access (via iTunes) to restore the iPod.

    Even if there were some 3rd party software, how would you download it if you have no internet access?
