Is there a way to perform a factory reset of an iPod Classic without having to use iTunes?
This may seem like an obscure question, but I am suffering from the following: I tried some 3rd party iPod management tool, performed a db rebuild with it, and now my iPod does not appear in iTunes or any other software. Windows 7 recognises it as an iPod, and the disk partition on it is accessible.
iTunes does not detect it. I have nothing to lose, so I don't mind doing a full reset/format etc.
I am running a Windows 7 machine (32 bit).
EDIT: I solved the problem by upgrading to iTunes 10. I was running an old version (I think 8 or 9). There could have possibly been a compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the older versions?
