im having trouble restoring my iPod classic.
my ipod is a 4th generation (photo) model. i am trying to restore the ipod, but it told me to hook it up to a regular power outlet after it "restored" it on the computer. now ive checked on apples site, ive looked around online, but no one seems to know how long it has to stay on the ac charger or if thats what your really supposed to do. so i was just woundering if this site could tell me or help me find out, thanks for your time!
you never clarified the model of the iPod. If you have anything before the 5th gen you HAVE TO HAVE a firewire adapter in order to complete restoration. It will tell you to plug it in the AC Wall adapter but HAS TO HAVE firewire connection. It will not finish the restore until you do so.
The only time I have had a similar message come up it was when the iPod was very low on power and I put it on a charger for about three hours and came back and tried it again. It failed because my battery was dead but I think if your battery isn't dead two to three hours should be enough to get enough of a charge to restore.
