  • Hold down Select / Menu (to reboot the iPod)
  • As soon as the Apple logo appears, hold down Rewind / Select until...
  • see a backwards Apple Logo.
  • At this point, you will have entered Diagnostic Mode. It'll test the RAM, and then tell you to HIT PLAY TO CONTINUE. Hit 'Play'.
  • You'll be in a menu that you advance by hitting FF (Fast Forward). Advance to the 'DISKMODE' entry.
  • Hit 'Select.' This will put you into Firewire Disk mode. The screen should change to the familiar 'Do Not Disconnect' mode. At this point, connect it to the computer.
  • Run the restore utility; it should now recognize the iPod and offer to Restore the factory software. Do so. You'll lose whatever's on it, but you'll avoid having to send it back in to Apple and pay them $49 or whatever to do basically the same thing. :-)

    My ipod only shows how to connect to Itunes THERE ARE NO APPS,AND Itunes does not reconize it

    If you iPod Touch is showing an iTunes logo with a USB cord at the bottom, then you iPod is in recovery mode.

    You'll need to plug the iPod Touch into a computer with iTunes installed. iTunes will automatically tell you it's in recovery mode and give you the option to restore the device.

    This will put new software on the iPod and it will be set back to factory settings.

    My ipod wont show up on the bar when i plug it in the itunes

    Sometimes your iPod fails to display in iTunes, which will keep you from being able to transfer songs from your computer to your iPod. If this happens, there are a number of steps you can take to resolve the issue.
    Is it the iPod? Your iPod could fail to show in iTunes for a variety of reasons and this issue can be resolved by something as simple as rebooting your iPod. To reboot your iPod, first lay it on a flat surface. Using your thumb and index finger, press the play and menu button at the same time. If done correctly, your iPod screen will go blank and then you'll see the Apple logo. Is it the USB cable? Your iPod could fail to show in iTunes if you are using a defective USB cable. Try connecting your iPod to another computer that has iTunes installed using the same USB cable. If iPod again fails to show in iTunes, replace the USB cable. Is it my computer? One of the most common reasons your iPod doesn't show in iTunes is because your computer doesn't recognize your iPod is connected. Troubleshooting your computer/iPod connection Disconnect your iPod from the computer and reconnect. If your iPod still doesn't appear in iTunes, disconnect your iPod and reboot your machine. Once your computer has restarted, reconnect the iPod. Is it iTunes? Your iPod could be fail to display in iTunes if there is a issue with your iTunes program. If there is a problem with iTunes you can try updating the software to the most recent version. If that doesn't resolve your problem, re-install iTunes. b> b> b> iPod Won't Connect to iTunes b> Apple's iTunes software contains mechanisms specially designed to sync with your iPod, allowing you to transfer music, videos and other media from your computer. If you find that iTunes does not recognize or allow you to access your iPod, then you cannot perform some of the device's most fundamental functions. Fortunately you can often resolve this problem without expensive maintenance, simply by doing a bit of troubleshooting and determining the cause of your connectivity problem.

    Try resetting your iPod. Apple recommends this as a first step in troubleshooting an iPod not appearing in iTunes, since a quick reset will often restore functionality. If you use a click wheel iPod, hold down the "Menu" and center buttons until the Apple logo appears on your screen. For the iPod Touch, hold your "Home" button and "Sleep" button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Charge your iPod battery. If your battery has absolutely no power left, your iPod will often remain unresponsive even when plugged into iTunes. Try charging for three to four hours and then try connecting again. Plug your iPod into your computer using a different USB port. Sometimes a failed connection can mean you have a faulty USB port, so try plugging your USB cable into a different port and see if the iPod appears in iTunes. Verify that you have the latest version of iTunes. Visit the iTunes page and check to see the latest version available. If you do not know which version currently runs on your computer, click "About iTunes." For Mac users, this option will appear under 'iTunes" on your menu bar. For Windows users, the option will appear under "Help" on your menu bar. Download the latest version of iTunes if necessary. Reconfigure your iPod service. If running iTunes on a Windows computer, click "Start > My Computer > Manage," and select "Services and Applications." Under "Services," select "iPod Service" and click "Stop." Leave the window open and connect your iPod to your computer. When your iPod shows up on your computer, click "Start." Reinstall iTunes. If simply updating iTunes does not work, you may have defective software. Try removing the program from your computer and completely and reinstalling it.

    • This isn't an iTunes problem. While the iPod is displaying this logo, you need to plug it in to a computer that has iTunes open beforehand.
    • Try using another computer with iTunes installed, or another USB cable for the iPod. Try to restart by holding the sleep and home buttons for about 10 seconds.
    • If this still doesn't work, take the iPod to your local Apple store, where they can check for any hardware problems that may have occurred.

    Screen shows usb and Itunes but computer doesnt recognize ipod.

    1. Verify if your pc passes the system requirements.
    (a) usb 2.0 port
    (b) You are running the latest version of itunes

    2. Recharge your iPod Touch

    3. Check USB connections. Use a USB port that is built into the computer instead of using an external usb hub.

    4. Restart iPod Touch. Do the following steps: To restart iPod touch, first turn iPod touch off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPod touch will turn off after a few moments.
    Next, turn iPod touch on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
    Is iPod touch not responding? To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    5. Restart your computer then reconnect your iPod Touch

    6. Try reinstalling iTunes. And if this doesn't resolve the issue, you can also try uninstalling iTunes then reinstalling the latest version.

    7. Check if there are third-party software that might prevent iTunes from recognizing your iPod touch. Such software may be security software, anti-virus software and webcam drivers. What you can do is adjust the software settings or you may also temporarily disable the software.

    My ipod touch gives me a usb cord with an arrow pointing to an itunes logo and wont let me do anything else but turn it back off and itunes doesnt let me go in because it needs a password but it doesnt let...

    Your iPod touch is currently in recovery mode. You probably accidentally disabled it that's why you can't restore it over iTunes.
    What you need to do is put it to DFU mode in order for you to proceed with the restore on iTunes. To do that, follow these simple steps:
    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):
