This is a simple fix, follow the steps below to resolve:

  1. Open up the iPod Drive in My Computer
  2. In there you will see a hidden folder called “iPod_control”.  If you don’t see it, that’s because it’s hidden.  Enable Viewing of Hidden files by clicking on Tools>Folder Options.  On the “View” tab is where you can change this setting
  3. Delete the “iPod_control”.  Note: This will delete any music you have on your iPod but is necessary to start using Ephpod
  4. Start up Ephpod again.  You will be prompted to create the “iPod_control” directory.  This time Ephpod will be able to create it.

Next: My iPod is stuck on the Apple logo.  I can’t get it to change.  I’ve tried pressing all the buttons (e.g. a Reset) but it still won’t respond.  What can I do?

Previous: Are there alternative software applications to MusicMatch Jukebox that I can use to upload songs to the iPod?
