    Exact same problem - I uninstalled all the Apple programs and used Windows Uninstall Utility which successfully got rid of Mobile Device Support and then installed the latest version iTunes and received the same error message!

What's your player? If it's apple iPod. You may try these steps.
1. Update iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes still can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
2. Click on your windows start menu. Type in "services". Click on it and when it pops up, on the bottom of it click on "standard". Now Scroll down to find "Apple Mobile Device" Right click it when you see it and click on "Start". When it has started, close iTunes and replug in your iPod and it should show up.
3. Check the USB cable

Tip

Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize


If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

My ipod touch has been disabled and I try plugging it in with my itunes and it says, "this ipod cannot be used because the apple mobile device is not started". How do I unlock my itouch?


You gotta do these steps:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.


If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures on my tip (link below):

Ipod touch


From the sounds of things, there seems to be an issue with your computer and not the ipod. If AMDS (apple mobile device service) won't start, generally a fresh install fixes the problem. I can only assume that you've got another piece of software on your computer that is inhibiting the performance of the program. You're right, it's really unfortunate that the touch is having so much difficulty. They really designed a nice device, but the software for PC users is really letting it down.  . Here is a website you can check out that shows how to restart the AMDS if you haven't already tried that. http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1567 . if you have or it doesn't work, go to your control panel, then add/remove programs, then find the AMDS and click on repair. I hear it takes some time for the repair to be completed, but be patient. I hear this solution works best. when all else fails. . Ciza

Music on Itouch shows up in Itunes but Itouch says No content add from Itunes


First you need to restart your itouch.
Then, plug it in to your computer and wait for iTunes to pop up.
Select a few songs from your library or some movies that you have and drag them to your iPod.
What I did was, dragged some movies on my itouch to the tv shows folder as soon as i did this everything popped back on to my screen

I'm having trouble just turning on my itouch... I just opened it and tried plugging it into the itunes... and it tells me "This ipod cannot be used because the Apple Mobile Device is not...


Your computer must be connected to the Internet.
By default, iTunes automatically syncs all songs and videos in your iTunes library to
iPod touch. If you have more content in your library than will fit on iPod touch, iTunes
alerts you that it can’t sync your content. You’ll need to use iTunes to select some of
your songs, videos, and other content to sync. The following section tells you how.
