Hi,
Your iPod touch should not appear in my computer. Does it appear in iTunes? If so, then that is all that you need to sync. If iTunes does not open automatically, click on it to open it. you should see your iPod there. Hope that that helps.

Apple media products such as the iPod Touch require the use of iTunes for managing media. Unfortunately, you cannot plug the iPod into the computer and simply copy media to or from it. You will have to install iTunes and import your media, then sync the iPod.

You can download iTunes here.

Once you have installed iTunes, open the program and connect your iPod. You will see it listed in the left pane. You will find support for iTunes and iPod on Apple's website. They have some very well-written support articles and videos that explain most of what you need to know to get started.

How do i download songs to my iPod model no.A1204 EMC no. 2125? and how to charge it?


As with all iPods, you must use Apple's iTunes application to sync your music with your iPod Shuffle.

You'll need to install the latest iTunes by downloading it from Apple click here> and then installing it. You install iTunes like any other downloaded program by double-clicking on the resulting icon after iTunes has successfully downloaded.
Follow the on-screen directions to install iTunes.
Once iTunes is installed, start up iTunes and have it search your computer for music for it to manage for you. While that is going on, plug the white USB cable that came with your iPod into your iPod Shuffle and into one of the USB ports on your computer. This will trigger iTunes to recognize your iPod Shuffle and ask you whether you want to set it up with this computer.

Follow the on-screen prompts to sync your iPod Shuffle with your computer.

To charge your iPod Shuffle, just keep it plugged in to your computer using the supplied white USB cable. Keep the cable connected until the battery indicator on the ipod Shuffle shows that the battery is full.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

My windows dosent reconize my ipod touch. when i plug it into my usb port it shows scanner and camera wizard


That means, your computer recognizes your iPod. But if what you're saying is that, iTunes doesn't open when you plug your iPod touch to the computer, it really won't, unless you selected the option "Automatically sync when this iPod touch is connected" from Device window in iTunes.

Also, make sure first that you have the latest iTunes installed in your computer. You can download it here. If iTunes is alreaady installed in your computer, simply open it and you'll find your iPod touch on the side column under Devices.

Starting up with anew ipod touch


To use iPod touch, you need:
  1. A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
  • Mac OS X version 10.4.10 or later
  • Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later, Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition.
  • iTunes 7.6 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
  • iTunes Store account (to purchase music over Wi-Fi)
  • An Internet connection
Before you can use any of the iPod touch features, you must use iTunes to set up iPod touch. You can also register iPod touch and create an iTunes Store account.
  1. Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
  2. Connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the included cable. The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on
    your computer
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to set up iPod touch and sync your music, video, photos, and other content. 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.
When you get back to France, you'll need sync it with your PC. Download the latest version of iTunes then sync your iPod with your computer.

That icon is telling you that you need to sync the ipod with your computer.  Download itunes on your computer.  Open up itunes.  Now take the USB cord and plug it in your USB port on your computer.  Take the other end and plug it into the ipod.  A screen on your computer should show up to prompt you to set up the ipod touch.  Just follow the screen instructions.
