i have experienced the same exact problem but just a little different. My ipod had a corrupt file and it told me to run the chkdsk utility which i did in command prompt. Now the error message has dissapeared but the music on my ipod wont show up in itunes nor on my ipod. But when looking at itunes it will say that my ipod has 4.38 gb used meaning that the music and my videos are possibly still on my ipod ram. Ive tryed going into diagnostic mode but when the ram test runs it will say that there is no problem. I need help on how to fix this. Does my old itunes version contribute to my ipod being messed up? Someone get back to me on this problem.ASAP!!!!

It seems to me that the Ipod 30g has problems, i had one and i took it back because of all the trouble it gave me with itunes, One thing i did notice is if you plug it in before you open itunes, it might catch it when you open it but will probably tell you to restore like it did for me. Once i did it put me into a recovery mode and told me to restore and update, so i did and a message will pop up saying "your ipod has been restored please do not disconnect ipod it is reseting. Once the ipod turned back on it was stuck in the recovery mode so i did it like 30 times and i was still stuck so i decided after reading all these comment boxes i looked at, it was time to bring it back.
80g IPOD is only an extra 100 dollars so its worth the upgrade with no hassel after it. And the new itunes is really bad/you are one of the many, many people with this problem.

The Sandisk Sansa has a poor build quality, a crappy flimsy wheel, a very sub-par why did they even bother radio and doesn't work with iTunes. Talk about "gay" not to mention a waste of money.

Steve, had same problem with my nano and couldn't get help anywhere. If like me you are using windows OS you might want to try unplugging the ipod from the PC and pressing "MENU" & "back" together for a few seconds. I found this started a diagnostics program. I set the thing to "deep sleep test" then tried to connect as normal to the PC. Works fine now.(original error message was "unknown error (50)"
