iPod Tip: How to Make your iPod Faster

by Shivaranjan on October 3, 2007


ipod Reader Jai Ram asks, “My iPod has become very sluggish, the menu access also takes lot more time now. It was good when I first bought it, can the same performance be restored?”

Jai Ram your iPod’s performance can be restored by simply defragmenting it.


  • iPod data cable.
  • iTunes (latest version preferable)

Here is how to do it: (this procedure is applicable in Windows Vista, the procedure for Windows XP is more or less the same)

1. Connect your iPod to your computer. Open iTunes and make sure that you have enabled Disk mode for iPod.


2. Now that your iPod is in Disk mode, you should be able to see your iPod as a removable storage device. Go to “My Computer” and right click your iPod and select the “Properties” menu. Now select the “Tools” tab in the window that pops up.


3. Once you are in Tools tab select, first scan your iPod’s file system for any errors. You can do this by the disk scanning utility of Windows. This utility would fix file system errors if there are any present in your iPod.

error checking

Now select the “Automatically fix file system errors” check box in the window that appears.


4. After the scan disk finishes, you can now start defragmenting your iPod. The defragmenting option can be found in the same Tools tab.


5. After defragmentation process is over, disconnect the iPod. Now your iPod should be as fast as it was before. :)
