Hi there,
Simple fix:

  • I'm sure you've already done this part but just for safeties sake go to the Apple site and download the very latest iTunes http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
  • Next press and hold the standby button. It will ask slide to turn off, do this.
  • Now press and hold both the Power and Home buttons together for about 10 seconds until the Apple symbol appears.
  • Now connect it to your PC.
  • If iTunes doesn't startup automatically or isn't already open then open it up.
  • Select the touch in the sidebar of iTunes then click on the Summary tab at the top of the main page.
  • Click “Check for Update.” iTunes tells you if there’s a newer version of the iPod touch software available.
  • Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
For more info refer to pages 97, 104-5 & 111 of the user guide (also available from http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipodtouch) and the knowledge base article here

All the best

How do I transfer a free podcast video in iTunes on my computer to my Coby MP815 16gb? Never done it before.


Sorry, iTunes will only work with an iPod. You need to export the podcast if you can as an mp3 file then you might be able to load it into that machine. Unfortunately I can't help you with that, I only know iPods.

Cannont transfer podcasts to itouch from itunes


It could be a bad file. If you're resetting your device, and then adding you music and such back, there may be some bad song, or app that is corrupting your device. On my Mp3 player, it would get stuck on a song that wasn't really there, so I found some corrupt goofy Weird Al song, removed it, and it never happened again.

I can't operatemy new 16gb ipod nano.


You need iTunes software - freely available from the apple.com website (for Windows and Apple operating systems). All the selecting and loading of music, podcasts and videos to your iPod is controlled using iTunes. Once you have that software open it is a fairly intuitive process  as your iPod will appear within iTunes as a specific device and you will see all the options for controlling it.

Are you downloading podcast videos or audio files?

Also, do you have your iPod to sync manually or automatically? Change it to manually if it is auto, then you can put the podcasts from your library onto your podcast folder on the ipod in iTunes.
