SOURCE: on the ipod touch the itunes icon comes out and is a usb cable with an arow pointing to the itunes icon

make sure you're USB is unplugged. when you're at the screen with the itunes symbol and the usb arrow, hold down the home and sleep button until the screen goes black, at this point, keep holding for another 10 seconds. at this point your screen should look black as if the ipod is off. connect to the computer and itunes shoulds show a message like "itunes has just discovered an ipod in recovery mode" you'll be able to do a restore and regain use of your touch.
if this does not work, message me back.

On the ipod touch the itunes icon comes out and is a usb cable with an arow pointing to the itunes icon


This will get your ipod working again through a restoring process:
Connect your ipod touch to your computer and make sure itunes is open. Hold down the power and home button for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds only release the power button and keep holding the home button until your itunes says it found an ipod in recovery mode. Then restore your ipod by clicking restore on itunes, or restore to a backup you might have made.
Hope this helps!

Hold down the sleep/wake button on the top of it for ten seconds. Plug it into your computer it should say "iTunes has detected a iPod in recovery mode" It should then give you a button on your computer allowing you to restore.
Also make sure you have the newest version of itunes installed on your computer.
Please let me know if you need further help.

Help my ipod touch is a 16gb n older version and its gt 5808849 minutes left. what cn i do?


Have iTunes open and your USB cable plugged into the Computer "BUT NOT THE iPOD"!

Turn the iPod off- Press and hold the sleep/wake button at the top left corner for approximately 10 seconds until the screen says slide to power off.


Force into recovery mode Press and hold the home button (in the front on the bottom) for approximately 10 seconds until you get the image of a USB cable pointing towards the iTunes logo on the screen. If you do not get this, try holding the home button down and at the same time plugging the other half of the USB cable into the ipod waiting for a message in iTunes

Follow instructions in iTunes Once you plug the iPod into the computer, you should get a message saying "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode, it must be restored to be used." At this point you hit the restore button in iTunes and wait for the iPod to be restored

Plug it into your comp. iTunes should recognize that it's corrupt. From there, it should attempt to restore the iPod. This wipes the whole thing, and restores it to its original format. Good luck!

Try restoring it, plug your iPod into your computer and open up iTunes, select your iPod in the list to the left, then click the "Restore" button located right under the big picture of your iPod model. Restoring will take several minutes.

Hope this helps!
