The first simple fix is to check that the connector socket on the ipod is free from lint etc. Use a quick puff of air. If it's accepting charge but not connecting to the pc it is one of two things.

  • Worst case scenario, the Logic board is dead and needs replacement. Not as expensive as it sounds. Call me
  • Hopefully though it's just a software thing. Install the very latest version of iTunes from the Apple site. Although they are identical models they might not have the same software version on the iPod themselves. Once iTunes is updated try syncing the faulty iPod. If it still doesn't connect it's probably the board.
All the best.

Open itunes, connect your Ipod to the computer with the USB cord, a message will come up saying "iTunes could not connect to the ipod because it is disabled/locked with a passcode". press cancel. Unplug your ipod from the USB cord.
Now shut down the ipod, hold in the home button at the bottom and connect the USB cable back up, keep holding the home button down and you will see a picture of a USB cable and iTunes on your ipod screen. iTunes will say it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and would you like to restore it to factory settings? Click restore and sit back for a few minutes until it restores everything to factory settings. Your ipod will reboot and iTunes will detect it. You can then go into the ipod and install a new pass code if you wish to.

Hope this helps,
Rob

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


Look into the bottom of the iPod where the USB connects. Make sure none of the pins are bent and that there is no corrosion visible. Also, are you using the same cable when you connect the different devices?
