I've tried several times but the iPod doesn't seem to want to work with iTunes.
First, the battery was completely dead and it wouldn't turn on. So I took care of that. Then I found out it was "corrupt" so I told iTunes to restore it. No effect except I needed to reselect a language on the iPod. However, connecting to iTunes still fails; the program says it's still corrupt.
The iPod is a 5th (5.5) gen video with 30GB. - another thing, when connected, iTunes doesn't know how much capacity is on the iPod.
Finally, Windows wants to format the iPod and calls it a "removable disk" in My Computer.
