Before you start, check your i Pod’s hard drive is indeed starting to fail.

Apple’s i Pod is by no means the worst offender, but there is one huge drawback that users generally loathe (particularly among Windows users); it’s called i Tunes., the biggest problem for i Pod users is the alternatives struggle to sync music correctly.

You cannot simply drag-and-drop music onto an i Pod in the same way that you can with more generic manufacturers – you have to sync a central library using Apple’s i Tunes software.

To enter the diagnostic mode on a Classic model, place your right thumb on the “Select” button and your left thumb on the “Menu” button.

Press down both thumbs for about 6 seconds until your i Pod reboots.

Even if you’ve already got a newer i Pod, you can still make good use of your old one.

One such use is to transform your device into a USB portable hard drive.

The second is to complete the process by using i Tunes.

Plug in your i Pod, then navigate to the summary page and tick either “Enable disk use” or “Manually manage music and videos” in the options.

With that in mind, you don’t want to use your shiny i Pod touch or smartphone as your primary method of delivering entertainment in your vehicle.
