getting message error -40 cant connect to itunes on my ipod 2g a1288


1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.

2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)

3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.

4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.

5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.

6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device.

7. Restore ipod using itunes

Update your iPod Software to at least 3.xx version
This is important as lower version of the software would not allow you to download any applications. You can do so from iTunes. Once you connect your iPod Touch or iPhone to the computer and start iTunes, it will tell you if there is a newer version of the software to upgrade. Just follow the instructions.
  • ** Restart your iPod/iPhone
    This step is just to reboot your iPod system to make sure the new software is in effect.
  • Step 3 ** Download applications aka games
    Make sure your iPhone/iPod Touch is connected to the internet. On your iPod touch/iPhone home page, there will now be a link labeled: 'Apps store'. Select that link. Now, you are free to browse the many applications and games that iTunes has to offer. Some games are free while others may require you to pay. .
  • Step 4 **Install the application aka game
    Once you have selected a game to install, tap the box that says, "free" in the right hand corner. It will then read, "Install". Tap the box again. Now, wait for the application to install on your home page.

  • hope this helps out a bit

    how to sync .ipa files from comp to iphone thru itunes ?


    when you sync the iPhone with the computer, iTunes will only add what is new, it will not delete your apps.

    Setting Up Syncing You use iTunes on your computer to set up which items are synced. Make sure you have the most recent version of iTunes (On a PC, open iTunes and choose Help > Check for Updates. On a Mac, open iTunes and choose iTunes > Check for Updates.
    Step 1: Connect iPhone or iPod touch
    1. Connect iPhone or iPod touch to your computer using the included cable. You can connect the cable from your computer directly to iPhone or iPod touch, or connect the cable from your computer to the Apple Universal Dock (available separately) and put iPhone or iPod touch in the dock. By default, iTunes opens automatically.
    2. Select iPhone or iPod touch in iTunes under Devices on the left hand side and click the Info tab.
    Step 2: Set Up Which Items Are Synced Click the respective tabs in iTunes to specify which media and information you want synced from your computer to iPhone or iPod touch.
    For more information about syncing iPhone with your computer see the iPhone User's Guide:
    On your computer: click here to download and view "Chapter 1: Getting Started" in iPhone User Guide.
    On iPhone: Tap Safari and view http://help.apple.com/iphone/guide/.
    For more information about syncing iPod touch with your computer:
    On your computer, click here to download and view "Chapter 1: Getting Started" in iPod touch User Guide.
    On iPod touch: Tap Safari and view http://help.apple.com/ipodtouch/guide/.

    Step 3: Sync iPhone or iPod touch Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the screen. Your computer syncs with iPhone or iPod touch according to your settings.
    The first time you sync iPhone or iPod touch, you are asked if you want to merge data, replace data on the service, or replace the data on your computer. After that, anytime you connect iPhone or iPod touch to your computer, iTunes opens and syncs with iPhone or iPod touch according to your settings.
    You can adjust sync settings anytime iPhone or iPod touch is connected to your computer. You can only connect and sync with one iPhone or iPod touch at the same time. If you need to sync more than one iPhone or iPod touch, disconnect one before connecting the other.
    Note: Syncing won't delete any contact in Yahoo! Address Book that contains a Messenger ID, even if you've deleted the contact from your address book on iPhone or your computer. To delete a contact containing a Messenger ID, log in to your Yahoo! account online and delete the contact using Yahoo! Address Book.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe

    Update and restore error messages on iPhone and iPod touch Last Modified: April 21, 2009 Article: TS1275 Old Article: 307219 Symptoms When trying to update or restore your iPhone or iPod touch with iTunes, you may see an error message in iTunes that stops the update or restore process. You may also see the "Connect to iTunes" screen on your iPhone or iPod touch:


    The error message in iTunes may also include one of the following numbers (but is not limited to): 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 13, 19, -18, -48, -50, 1002, 1011, 1013, 1601, 1602, 1603, 1604, 1608, 1609, 1611, 1612, 2003, 2004, -9808
    Products Affected iPhone, iTunes 7 for Mac, iTunes 7 for Windows, iPod touch, iPhone 3G, iTunes 8 for Windows, iTunes 8 for Mac, iPod touch (2nd generation) Resolution Many restore errors can be resolved using the troubleshooting steps found in this document.
    Update to the latest version of iTunes
    To see if you have the latest version of iTunes, open iTunes and:
    Windows: Choose Help > Check for Updates Mac: Choose iTunes > Check for Updates

    Restart your computer Simply restarting the computer can clear up certain issues that could prevent iPhone or iPod touch from being restored. After restarting, try restoring the device again in iTunes.
    USB Troubleshooting Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a different USB port on your Mac or Windows PC. USB 2.0 ports that are built-in to the computer are preferred over a hub. If iPhone or iPod touch were connected to USB ports on the front of the computer, try connecting them to rear USB ports. After doing this, try to restore the device in iTunes.
    If this fails, Restore on a different computer. If the issue is not resolved with the above steps, try to restore on a different computer. Ensure that the computer you are restoring on has USB 2.0 ports, the latest version of iTunes, and that you are connecting directly to the computer.
    Advanced Steps
    Make sure you have admin access

    If your still having problems estore using a new user account Create a new user account on your computer and try to restore while logged in as the new user. iTunes will download a new version of the software restore file. After creating the new user, log in to that account and open iTunes and attempt to restore to see whether the issue persists in this new user.

    Windows Vista and Windows XP
    From the Start menu, choose Control Panel. Open User Accounts. Select Create a new account and follow the instructions to complete the account setup process. Once the new account is created, choose Log Off from the Start menu. Log in to the newly created user account.
    When a restore issue is specific to a user, it is likely due to an unusable .ipsw file. The ".ipsw" files are what iTunes uses to restore your iPod or iPhone. If those files are unusable, then try deleting them so iTunes can download a new copy of them. Creating a new user will also cause new .ipsw restore files to be downloaded in the new user. You can find the ".ipsw" files in these locations:
    Windows XP iPod touch: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates (If you don't see the Application Data folder, you may need to show hidden files by opening (My Computer) Click on Folder Options. in that window click on the view tab, and make sure that show hidden files is selected.
    Windows Vista iPod touch: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates (If you don't see the AppData folder, you may need to show hidden files)
    1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options. 2. Click the View tab. 3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.

    After removing and reinstalling the latest version of iTunes, try restoring iPhone or iPod touch again in the origonal user account.




    As an added note, If running Microsoft Windows XP and the issue is resolved on another computer, but you continue to experience difficulties on your original computer, you may want to update or reinstall your Windows USB drivers and then try restoring iPhone or iPod touch again.
    If none of these steps work you will need to contact either apple at

    1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273)
    Or another service provider of your choosing to get the ipod touch serviced or replaced.
