Hello all!

So I changed my ipod format to FAT instead of FAT32, don't ask why, anyways the problem is now it will not reconnect for some weird reason, it just stays on the apple logo and i can not turn it off. Any ideas?

Thanks!

If you've actually changed the format from FAT32 to plain FAT (not VFAT) then you will have lost any long filenames. This could be what is preventing the iPod from running. What about doing a restore to return it to its factory setup?

Ah, that is a problem. I'd suggest taking the battery out to power it down, but I believe that Apple have a policy of making the batteries non-removable. Have a look at this thread and see if it helps at all.

Keep up the good help!
