Carpe... I have an 80gb iPod classic. It was working fine until today. I initially received a message from itunes telling my my ipod was corrupt but I couldn't utilize any of itunes' restore functions. Then itunes stopped recognizing my ipod all together. I've tried all of the diagnostic and reset methogs mentioned on numerous other forums. No matter what, every time I re-attach my iPod, Windows prompts me to format my G drive. This is regardless of whichever USB port I plug the iPod into, the type of cable I use, etc. Every time I try to format my G drive, the format always fails.
