SOURCE: can't sync ipod touch

If you haven't already, Uninstall your itunes and download a clean version.
install the clean version of itunes and try your ipod again.
you can get a clean version at www.apple.com/itunes/

It appears your install is corrupt.
also have you updated your touch recently.
if it is jailbroken you should be able to update it to a newer version.
If your version is to old, it maynot be compatible with the newer versions of itunes.
They are constantly trying to thwart the jailbreak and unlocked ipod and iphones.

Check your version and update to something newer if the re-install of itunes doesn't help.

Try resetting it while it is connected. 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.
If you have not already tried, I would also try the other ports on the computer.

Are you running iTunes 8?

And what kind of computer do you have?

My son updated my 2g ipod touch on his (older?) computer. It is frozen now & won't go past a screen w/the itunes symbol & the usb plug. It will not restore. I have uninstalled & reinstalled...


  • 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 Computer and my iTunes do not recognize my iPod. The iPod will start to charge, but it never really charges, will recognize all other iPods!


1. Reset or restore your iPod for a try, this can fix many general iPod problems. 2. You may try this iTunes alternative, I always use it to upload music and video to my iPod once my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, my friends recommend it to me, it's safe and works pretty well, you can also use it to copy music and video from ipod to computer for backup, it's useful when you lost your iTunes library. 3. Update your iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod. I got this method from Apple technical support. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". This will completely reset your ipod, hopefully fixing any bugs or problems in it. also, you will lose all data saved on the ipod that isn't also backed up by itunes. Music, pictures, and video can be re-synced.

Ipod not getting connected to itunes nor getting charged, and please recommend which ipod converter to download. Thank you in advance my ipod is not charged, when connected to a computer


hello!

if your IPod touch is not connected to itunes, please try the ff:

Check the iPod touch Display
-- When you connect iPod touch to your computer, the iPod touch should display an image or message on the display

-- If you do not see any image, check some basic troubleshooting here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1737
-- If you see a message on the screen, this indicates that the iPod touch does not have sufficient battery charge to operate and will need to be charged for several minutes before it can be recognized in iTunes.

Verify Windows PC System Requirements

--iPod touch requires iTunes 7.4 or later
Check USB Connections

-- iPod touch requires USB 2.0 to function properly
-- Try connecting iPod touch to a different USB port, preferably a port that is built-in to the computer instead of an external USB hub. Connecting iPod touch to your keyboard's USB ports is not recommended.

Restart your PC

-- In some cases, your computer's USB ports may become temporarily disabled or you may experience other software related issues. Restarting your PC is an easy troubleshooting step that may resolve this issue.

Verify iPod touch Driver/Service Installation

-- iPod touch requires two important pieces of software to operate properly on Windows. First, the driver must be installed; for iPod touch the driver is USBAAPL.SYS. Second, Apple Mobile Device Support must be installed as a Windows Service.
