so yesterday i accidently unplugged my ipod without disconnecting it and i got a red "x" error. so i looked online and found instructions on how to fix it. but the first step is to put my ipod into disk mode and i cant. i turn it on and i see an apple then it goes to the red X. then i push menu and select until it restarts and i see another apple. i then push select and play/pause but it always ends up going beck to the red x. i have set it on a table and tried it and i have even tried the older one by pushing foreward and backward buttons. what am i doing wrong? please help..

P.S. i have an ipod classic 8 GB

built, Windows XP, N/A

    Did you ever get help with this issue? My ipod classic 160GB worked fine last night when I went to bed, and this morning I'm geting the red x with the red circle around it. I have tried for 30 minutes to put it in disk mode and cannot get it to work. I really need some help. Thanks.
