Question about Apple iPod touch

1 Answer

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

I have an iTouch, how do I know what applications - free or paid - will work with iTouch - I see iPod, iPhone, iPad, but not iTouch....thanks


Generally in the itunes store under requirements it tell you that the application is compatible with either iphone, ipod touch or ipad. You should note that the ipod touch is what you seem to call the itouch.

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)

HOW TO GET MY WINDOWS VISTA TO RECOGNIZE MY IPOD TOUCH 8GB?


Do you have iTunes 8?  Are you sure that there's nothing wrong with your iTouch's USB cord? Have you checked your PC's USB ports by plugging in another USB device?
If you've tested all of that and you're still having issues, feel free to call me. I can walk you through some more trouble shooting.

Itunes does not recognize my itouch please help


Okay well the only way you can resolve your problem is by taking your iPod to your local Apple store they should do a swap. Sounds like there is a firmware fault.
