iPod/iTunes download problems

Postby Tocchet on Tue Feb 14, 2006 12:23 pm

In an attempt to catch up with the times, I bought a nano iPod a week ago, but I can't seem to effectively download the iTunes software. I've tried the cd software about three times, and I even tried to download everything via the iPod website...all to no avail.

When I first tried the cd, everything went smoothly through the Install Wizard program, right up until the very end. When the window asked me to remove the cd and choose whether to restart then or not, I clicked "restart now"....but then an error message popped up saying that the required disc was not in the drive....and then another small window popped up saying that it needed to close a program, with iTunes being at the "header" of the window (along with a bunch of squares). The iTunes shortcut icon is on my desktop, but when I click it, the hourglass appears for about 2 seconds and then goes away...with no iTunes window appearing. I removed the program and tried a couple more times, but each time had the same result.

I then went to the website and "installed" through that. No error messages, no closing of programs. Desktop icon there. No iTunes. But now when I click on the icon, a window pops up for about 1 second -- not enough time to read or identify -- but it looks like a user agreement because I can make out an "I agree" at the bottom (but I can't click on it).

I don't want to return the nano since this seems to be a computer/software issue, but I'm at my wits end trying to figure this out so I can FINALLY use the damn thing. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions????

Thanks, rasbatch. I'll keep that in mind for the next time I'm driving on Route 51 South near Perryopolis....

I'm just saying I check the NHR posts is all and I agree with the advice you got on the other thread about uninstalling an redownloading. My wife's ipod got the file of death icon and I found some good sites out there for ipod diagnositics. When I get home I can post the links if you're interested they have a pretty good FAQ on there

Definitely -- that would be a big help. I thought I followed the advice listed on the iPod site, but to no avail.
