balachander ramamurthy try this from Apple first:i

t is the same for error 50 but could work for 1439 as well:"

Disconnect the iPod from the computer and close iTunes.

Highlight all of the following 10 lines of text that begin with regsvr32 and then choose Copy from the Edit menu of your web browser:

regsvr32 /s softpub.dll

regsvr32 /s wintrust.dll

regsvr32 /s dssenh.dll

regsvr32 /s rsaenh.dll

regsvr32 /s gpkcsp.dll

regsvr32 /s sccbase.dll

regsvr32 /s slbcsp.dll

regsvr32 /s mssip32.dll

regsvr32 /s cryptdlg.dll

regsvr32 /s initpki.dll

Open the Notepad program by navigating to:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad

In Notepad, choose Paste from the Edit menu. Note: Make sure that the text that appears in Notepad is the same as what is shown above.

From the File menu, choose Save As.

For File name, type appleipod.bat and save the file to the Desktop.

Close Notepad and locate the appleipod.bat file. It should appear on the Desktop

Double-click the file and you will see a black window appear on the screen for about a minute. Wait until the window automatically disappears and proceed to the next step.

The appleipod.bat file can be deleted at this time.

Open iTunes and connect the iPod.

When the iPod appears in iTunes, restore the iPod and resync your content.

Note: Because some malware may unregister the .dll files, make sure you have the most recent updates to your anti-virus software and then do a full scan of your files. from How can I get my iPod Classic to Restore? Nothing works!

If that does not work for the error 1439, try this:"leave iPod plugged into computer. Press the centre button and menu at the same time until iTunes recognizes there is an iPod plugged in. It should also recognize that the iPod is corrupted and commence downloading recovery software." You should also try a different USB port. Use one in the back of the computer (if you are using a desktop). Let us know what works, if anything.

Update

If the above does not work and you get the "It says that I have 148 GB (out of 160) available, but the pie charts say that I have 0 Bytes used and 0 Bytes free" sounds like you have either a bad hard drive or a bad hard drive cable. I would check the hard drive with a Zif-to USB connector.

@oldturkey03 you have problems man ? I am trying to help. I even use "search" that most PEOPLE don't ! And you say that i should be careful ? Sorry i am tired of being "corrected" in the last answers that i gave. I see you have a lot of reputation ,guides,and marks. So i can't be like you ,so i will stop helping or try to help people. Keep up the good work.

@acnologia the careful refers to editing the answers to ensure that they are appropriate. You left the parts of my original answer that pertained to an iPod Classic. You cannot just copy and paste without reading the answer.
