I have tried all the troubleshooting tips online but my Classic ipod doesnt work. My Itunes keeps telling me that it cannot restore the ipod because the ipod is busy. What can I do?

iPod classic, iOS 5

    Have you tried rebooting for the Mac and iPod to see if that helps? To reset the iPod, press and hold both the Select/Center and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.


    It wouldn't hurt to also try plugging the iPod into another USB port and use a different USB sync cable.

    I have tried all that. Nothing has worked so far I have tried every solution on just about every message board.


    Thank you for the advice though!! Its nice to see I am not the only one suffering.

    What trying to restore it on another PC or Mac and then reconnecting it to your own Mac?
