The first stop is to update your version of iTunes. Then connect your ipod to this and click the Restore button. I'm having to assume from the error message that you are connecting to a PC and not a Mac. That being the case it is likely the drivers have become corrupted rather than the device itself. Reinstalling iTunes should rectify this. Additionally try the Apple iPod Reset Utility available here.

All the best

Will not leave apple logo


Sometimes a iPod malfunction occurs that results in the Apple logo freezing on the screen of the iPod. When this happens, toggling the Hold switch or resetting the iPod typically resolves the problem. If following the manufacturer's instructions on resetting the device fails to get a response from your iPod, however, you must troubleshoot other potential solutions. In addition, taking the time to find the cause of the problem can help you prevent a recurrence of the issue.

Battery Allowing the battery to discharge completely may unlock an iPod stuck on the Apple logo. To drain the battery, leave the iPod with the Apple logo on the screen and place it in a drawer or in another safe place. Do not attempt to use the iPod until the battery drains and the screen goes black. This may take a day or more depending on the current level of battery charge. Once the battery drains, connect the iPod to your computer or to the wall outlet using an AC adapter and charge the battery completely before turning on the device. b> Restore If the iPod remains frozen on the Apple logo after draining and recharging the battery, you may need to restore the device to original factory settings. Unfortunately, this results in the loss of all data and media files stored on the iPod. Restoring the iPod, however, does not delete the files stored in the iTunes library, so you can still get your data back onto the iPod. Follow the specific instructions for your iPod model when restoring the device. Upgrade Software Problems with the version of software installed on your iPod may cause the device to freeze. Upgrading the software may resolve the problem because the updates released by Apple often include both bug fixes and software enhancements. In addition, installing the current release of the iTunes software also may resolve the freezing problem experienced by your iPod. File Corruption Often, a corrupt file can cause your iPod to fail. If you notice that the problem recurs after playing a specific song or video, then delete that file from your iPod. If the problem occurs again after synchronizing with iTunes, delete the file from your iTunes library. Then import the original file into iTunes again or re-download the file. Typically, if a corrupted file is behind the iPod freezing, a reset temporarily restores functionality until the problematic file plays again. b> App Overload Installing apps on your iPod touch can give you more than just fun or informative software. Running too many memory-intensive apps at one time can overwhelm the device and cause your iPod touch to freeze. A single problematic app may have the same effect. Limiting the number of apps running at one time or removing troublesome apps may resolve this problem.

I dont have itunes and my ipod is disabled! i dont know the password! :@ HELP ME I Tried the ipod_control thingy but there isnt even any ipod_control :s i have windows


You have to install iTunes on your PC. without it, there's no way for you to recover that iPod touch from that state. CLICK HERE to download iTunes. If an AD appears, just click SKIP THIS AD on the top-right corner.
After the download is done, install iTunes. while that is going on, do the following steps to put your iPod to DFU mode:
  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 and some screenshots on my tip (link below):

How to restore an iPod


If you have a backup before, go onto iTunes, right click on your device on the left-hand side bar, and their should be an option 'Restore From Backup', or something similar, click that and it'll restore your iPod to a previous backup.

iPod Data Recovery software can help you, it enables you preview and recover all contents from the iTunes' backup file, including your iPod photos, videos, notes, calendar and contacts.

I want to erase music of my ipod nano


Go to itunes and click on a song that you want to delete and press the delete button on your keyboard and it will ask you if you are sure you want to delete this song from all playlists and off the ipod and click yes and it will delete. Unfortunately, it will not let you delete it from the ipod menu without connecting it to a computer.

Cant get into my ipod dont know code


If you locked yourself out of a device, we can't help you. You need to ask your friends for the codes to un-lock the device.

This is a fairly simple (yet effective) anti-crack device, and as such, we can not counsel you on ways to defeat this device.
