Ipod touch when I plug it in my touch to mycomputer it is being recognized because that is when it gives me the error "itouch can't be used because apple mobile device has not started" Don't know if the itunes helper is running. I can't believe this item costs so much and alot of people are having the same problems. I just want to listen to some music. Glad it was a gift.

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

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.

Dock is not recognizing the Ipod


1) Back everything up on your iTouch.
2) Restore, using i tunes (connected to the computer. Not just 're-store' to factory settings under Touch settings).
3) Put everything back on to your iTouch.

Worked for me, if not for you- check that the faults not with your dock.

My Pioneer car stereo recognizing the songs on my IPod 3G


I had this exact same problem. Here is how I just figured out how to fix it. First of all, my friend as an iTouch as well, so I plugged his iTouch into my DEH-P4000UB, similar to your 3100UB, and it actually worked and played music. So I went to my Music then selected a song and pressed pause. I turned on the car and then plugged the USB cable into my iTouch, exactly the same as yours. When I replugged my iTouch into my deck it gave me a different error this time, Error-19. Refreshing but still frustrating. So I turned off the car, unplugged the USB cable and tried it one more time. This time I selected "Repeat" on the song, don't ask me why, but this is exactly what I just did. I turned on the car, plugged the USB and it worked!!!

I understand your frustration and I've been dealing with it for a while now. So hopefully this helps. Good Luck!

Error (13) in itouch keeps showing when restoring, HELP!!!! how can i fix my itouch out of this freezed screen displaying a cd and usb port.....PLEASE!!!


From Apple Website 1. Restart your computer (yes, you have too)
2. plug in your ipod touch (it should have the usb cord and itunes picture on the screen)
3. open itunes.
4. itunes will recognize the ipod. just ignore the message, and then hold down the home and hold button (on the top) for about 10 seconds, and after you count to 10, release the top hold button, but still holding home.
5. itunes will pick up the ipod, and once it does, release home.
6. Now click restore, and everything should work fine.
(if problem persists, try turning off firewall, and close all other programs)

New iTouch doesn't work in DEH-P4800MP


The newest versions of the Iphone uses USB charging only, while older generations of (any) Ipods used firewire for charging. First generation Iphone and Ipod Touch could be charged with either method. Most docks historically used the firewire charging method, making them incompatible with all but 1st generation Iphones. You need a new cable/charger that charges with the USB method.
