     I have the latest version of itunes and have my ipod classic set on disk mode, but when I plug it into my computer, it doesn't show up. At first I thought it was my computer, but after scrolling through the settings while on disk mode I could see that the ipod recognized that it was plugged into a usb port. I don't know what I should do next. Can you please help me?

    i had the same red x in a circle, and i searched online for solution, and found this solution,

    so i combined a couple and i did it my self and worked.

    this what you should do:

    (make sure your somewhere quiet first, for step 3)

    1. hold the select(middle button) and menu till it resets

    2. hit the left top (the side with the luck key) a few times semi hard (not so hard to break it, but hard enough to move back the pin or the reader of the hard drive in place) on a hard surface, i did it in a wooden one.

    3. listen closely to your ipod, it makes a little noice. kinda like old modem or something, youll know when you hear it. mine worked the first time so i dont know how it sounds if it doesnt work, lol. but you might have to try it a coe times. but make sure you hit it hard enough.

    4. watch your ipod come back to life

     

    let me know if you have any question..
