Generally, the recommendation for this issue is to open up the Control Panel and go into Programs & Features. Remove ONLY Apple Mobile Device Support and iTunes. Restart the computer, then download a NEW copy of the iTunes installer from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and complete the installation.

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.

Recovery mode with out using the power button


An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues.
Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit.
The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version.
Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods.
In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore.
When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process.
You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.

Turn on your computer and open iTunes.
If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding.
Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer.
Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet.

Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step.
Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch.
Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen.
At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode.
Click "OK."
Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen.
Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore."
Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again.
The restoration process takes a few minutes.
Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.

Wont turn on after reset


The iPod Touch has a battery capable of up to 40 hours of audio playback, but depending on how you use your iPod, the battery capacity can vary widely. If you attempt to turn your iPod on and get no result, the battery could be fully drained, which you can easily resolve by connecting it to your computer to recharge it. If this doesn't work, resetting or restoring your iPod may get it working once again.

Charge Connect your iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable that came with it and charge it for at least 10 minutes before attempting to use it again. If the battery is fully drained, the screen may remain blank for a few minutes after plugging it in, and then a low battery image will appear, indicating that you shouldn't unplug it for at least 10 minutes. Never plug your iPod into your keyboard, but rather into the computer itself. Also make sure your computer is on and not in sleep mode while your iPod is charging, or the battery may drain rather than charge. Reset b> If recharging your iPod doesn't resolve the issue, reset it while it remains connected to your computer. Push the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously until the battery symbol or the Apple logo appears. This takes about 10 seconds. Continue to charge your iPod if the low battery image appears after the reset. Restore b> If your iPod Touch still isn't responding, restore it in recovery mode. First, place your iPod in recovery mode by disconnecting it from the USB cable, and then press and hold the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons simultaneously until the iPod turns off. Push the "Home" button once again, and continue to hold it while you re-connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable. Continue holding the "Home" button while the iPod turns on and release it only when the "Connect to iTunes" screen appears. Open iTunes, and click "OK" when the recovery mode alert appears. ITunes will restore your iPod back to factory settings. You'll be able to sync it with iTunes to recover the data you lost during the restore, provided you have synced with iTunes in the recent past. Check Liquid Contact Indicators b> All iPods manufactured since 2006 have built-in liquid contact indicators. If your iPod has been in contact with liquid, this could be the source of your problem. You can check whether the liquid contact indicators have been triggered by looking straight down the headphone jack on your iPod. If you see red or pink at the bottom of the headphone jack, your iPod has been in contact with liquid, and this is likely the cause of its malfunction. Contact an authorized Apple repair center to inquire about whether a repair is possible. Such repairs aren't covered under your iPod's warranty. iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2771 iOS: Unable to update or restore http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

Ipod touch model a1288 is disable forgot passcode and wont let me connect to itunes messages says enter passcode to connect


The most logical option would be...
- Connect your device to iTunes (The same computer it is set to sync with)
- Hold the power and home buttons
- After the device shuts down, release the power button
- Your device should then be in recovery mode, at which point you may release the home button upon seeing a message on iTunes that basically says it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.

Ipod keep freezing with only the apple showing on screen...wont do anything else...says port is not found


1) Start iTunes.

2) Power the device on by holding the sleep/wake and home button for about 10 seconds. Release the sleep/wake button, but keep holding the home button.


3) If you did it correctly, the device will be showing either a connect to itunes screen (recovery mode) or a black screen (DFU mode) We are trying for DFU mode here, but recovery may work too. Connect the ipod to your computer. iTunes will tell you that it has detected an iPhone or iPod touch in recovery mode.


4) If you see the iTunes icon and cable on your iPhone, your device is not in DFU mode, but in recovery mode. Your device's screen will be black when you are in DFU mode. I always have to try this several times so succeed.

5) Connect your device back to your Pc/Mac and press SHIFT+CLICK (pc) or COMMAND+ CLICK on the restore button.

6) Select the firmware version you'd like to install from your computer. You can google for ipod touch firmare to download the file, or just let it update right from apple.
7) Wait for a couple of minutes and your iPhone/iPod will be as new.

I can not get my code to work on my ipod touch


The only way to reset it if you really do not know the password is to put it in restore mode and connect it to iTunes for a full restore. You cannot restore it in iTunes unless you are in restore mode since you do not have the password.
ALSO! Please know that once you put it in restore and connect to iTunes for the restore process, the apps and songs on the actual iPod Touch will be gone.
Anyway, to put the Touch in restore mode do this:
o put the iPhone / iPod Touch into recovery mode:
- Turn it off (hold the power button on the top down for a few seconds then slide the red slider across from left to right).
- Press and hold the home button (the button on the front, under the screen)
- While still holding the home button, plug it in to the computer
The screen should show something like this:
recoverymode.jpgiPhone / iPod Touch Recovery Mode
You should now be able to use iTunes to restore the iPhone / iPod Touch by clicking the Restore button.

Good luck!!

My itouch is disabled how do i unlock it


Plug the iPod touch into the computer that it was last synced with.

Once iTunes recognizes the iPod you should be able to unlock it with your password.

If you do not remember your password or you still cannot unlock the iPod, then you should try to restore the iPod.

To restore the iPod:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with.
3) Continue to hold the Home button until the iTunes symbol appears on the iPod's screen. The iPod is now in recovery mode.
4) After iTunes has recognized that the iPod is in recovery mode, follow iTunes instructions and restore the iPod.

If restoring the iPod doesn't work, then you will need to call Apple customer support.

My itouch says connect to itunes but it wont let me


You will want to reset the ipod and reconnect it to your computer. Below I have posted step by steps on three trouble shooting options. If after a reset it still will not connect to the computer, proceed to step two. Putting the iPod into recovery mode. Then if in recovery mode you can get it to connect to the computer, restore it to factory settings. Restoring it is listed as step three. I left the restore article normal in case you can get it to connect with just a simple reset.

1st reset

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

2nd RECOVERY MODE
Connect your USB cable to the computer without the iPod connected at the other end.

Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.

Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.
Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes.

If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPod and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore the iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available)


RESTORE Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

If none of this works and your iPod is still under a year old I would call apple. Make sure that you inform them of the trouble shooting you have already done though. They can tend to assume people don't do trouble shooting. GOOD LUCK
