Some of you have experienced this: The recently released Windows iPod Software Updater launches and is completely unresponsive (while CPU usage maxes out at 100%!) - leaving you unable to do anything with your freshly formatted iPod. What a dead end! After some ‘Googling’ I found an app written for exactly this problem: WinniePod will restore or update your iPod regardless.

The WinniePod link doesn’t seem to work for me.
