My 80GB video iPod just died. I had just finished loading the CD I just bought (Femi Kuti Definitive Collection). When I finished and disconnected it, I couldn’t put it to sleep by holding the play button, so I reset it. It then kept rebooting continuously and wouldn’t appear in iTunes so I couldn’t even restore it. Finally I was able to put it in disk mode by holding down the center button and play right after resetting and it showed up in iTunes. However, when I tried to restore it, iTunes would crash immediately. I finally erased it in Disk Utility and I’m now able to restore it from iTunes. It’s still reloading my library, so I’ll see if it works now when it’s finished.
