You can restore thru the itunes application altho it will restore to factory specs. connect you itouch via usb cord itunes should launch then on the main page listing your itouch it should have a restore selection..

    I think you should be able to. I have restored my Iphone on other computers in my home. the only difference is the other computer will have to recognize and install your itouch on itunes. 


    have you tried turning your itouch all the way off waiting a few minutes then restarting and reconnecting to your computer to see if I tunes would recognize it?

    another thing to do is go under the help menu in itunes click the run diagnostics tab and it should search for you ipod touch. also make sure you have the latest version of Itunes aswell. are you on a pc or mac?

    cancel the automatic windows thing. and try the help/run diagnostics menu in itunes first.

My itouch is locked with a passcode and it shows the itunes with the USB port pointing at it and when i plugged it into my itunes it said that it couldnt connect to the ipod because it was locked by a...


Okay well you have to do a full restore. Turn your itouch completely off. With it off, hold down the circle button and plug in the USB cable connected to your computer. The itouch will power on and you will see the apple, but keep holding in the circle button. After 15-30 seconds, you will see another (different) cable/itunes screen on the iphone. iTunes should then recognize that the itouch is in recovery mode and you can then do a restore. You should be good from there.
Remember, turn off the itouch. Then while its off hold down the circle button and plug it in. Keep holding down the button until the recovery screen comes up. Good luck!!

Tip

Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize


If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

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.
