This is how your iPod is intended to work. Apple has designed them so that you can only access them through iTunes. So don't worry that Windows doesn't see it, it's not supposed to.
If you want Windows to see it then you will have to use 3rd party software such as http://www.findleydesigns.com/

Error (13) in itouch keeps showing when restoring, HELP!!!! how can i fix my itouch out of this freezed screen displaying a cd and usb port.....PLEASE!!!


From Apple Website 1. Restart your computer (yes, you have too)
2. plug in your ipod touch (it should have the usb cord and itunes picture on the screen)
3. open itunes.
4. itunes will recognize the ipod. just ignore the message, and then hold down the home and hold button (on the top) for about 10 seconds, and after you count to 10, release the top hold button, but still holding home.
5. itunes will pick up the ipod, and once it does, release home.
6. Now click restore, and everything should work fine.
(if problem persists, try turning off firewall, and close all other programs)

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.

Does one have to have apple computer for ipod one touch


Are you going to (www.apple.com/itunes/download) to download the latest version of iTunes? Also I would suggest attempting the download with your firewall/anti-virus software disabled. As they can sometimes cause the itunes download to not complete or download with missing files. They are not viruses but sometimes the different softwares will think they are malicious. You do not have to own an apple computer to use an apple iPod. Just make sure that your Operating System on your PC is up to date an you should be good to go. If your not downloading iTunes version 8.1.1.10 then it's not the latest version. :)

When i plug my nano in my computer doesnt recognize it and says it malfunctioned but it plays music fine what do i do? ive tried the menu/center button method and disc mode nothing works im confused and...


First: try it on a different computer if you have one. You can even try it on a friends computer.
Second: do you have any other devices that are connected to the USB port on your computer? Do they work? Try the device that works in the same port that the IPOD was in and see if you get an error with the other device.
Third: You might have a problem with itunes. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes and see if that works.
Fourth: There might be a problem with the usb drivers that windows uses to run the usb ports (are you running windows?) you can go into the device manager and goto the usb ports and delete them then have windows redect them.

Just a few ideas.

Why does my iPod appears on my computer but not in iTunes?


Maybe radical but this worked for me.
My computer-select ipod,Right click and format disc (fat 32)
Once refomatted plug in to computer and start Itunes.
Click on Restore to factory settings, At the end of that you will need to plug it briefly into an ac outlet.
Reconnect ti computer and start Itunes.
Sync with library.
This worked for me after trying everything else I could fine failed.

My error when I ran diagnostics said "one or more sync tests failed."
