Can't restore; error message 1429

History

I have two 2nd generation Mini 4GB iPods, which I am trying to get working in order to sell on EBay. ITunes says the software is corrupted, but when I try to restore them I get error message 1429. Any suggestions as to what might work?

1) try to use different usb port or first remove any other USB Device that you have connected to the computer (don’t remove usb keyboard or usb mouse ). And then try different USB Port.

2) update your itune to the latest version or download the latest version and do fresh installation.

3. Try connecting your iPod to a different USB port and restore.

4) If you are using microsoft Windows operating system, then try to update your usb driver or reinstall Windows USB drivers.

If you have iPod Mini then you need to use iPod reset utility to restore iPod.

Here's the one for Windows: http://support.apple.com/downloads/iPod_...

rj713,

If you have iPod shuffle you need the reset utility.

Esmond Pitt,

I thought it was an iPod Mini?

oldturkey03,

I'm referring to mayer's answer where he says 'mini'. Should be 'shuffle'. You only need the reset utility for the iPod shuffle. He is misquoting his source. As the OP has a mini he doesn't need the utility at all, just iTunes.

Esmond Pitt,

Ah I see, sorry about that. That makes sense and I admit I read the question only. Thanks for clarifying.

oldturkey03,
