SOURCE: Ipod touch wont read on itunes!

Factory ship mode is easy... Hold the Home & Power buttons for 10 seconds, release the Power button while continuing to hold the Home button for another 10 seconds.
After that it should tell you to attach it to a PC/Mac when you try to turn it back on.
Questions, call me.

SOURCE: forgot password on my itouch

If you just plug your iPod into the computer, it should work fine. I forgot my password once, and I plugged it in, and it worked and didn't take off the songs. As long as you plug it into the computer you put songs onto the iPod from, it shouldn't be a problem.

SOURCE: my itouch has a passcode

To resolve this issue, you will need to restore your iPod to factory settings This means any data (music, movies, contacts, etc.) will be erased and the iPod brought back to it's factory settings (like the day you got it).
To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Make sure your iPod is disconnected and powered off. If it's not already, hold down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" message is displayed and swipe to turn off.
2. Connect the USB end of the data cable to your computer, do not connect the other end just yet.
3. Connect the other end of the data cable to the iPod and immediately press down & hold the "Home" button.
4. Continue to hold down "Home" button , until the iTunes logo appears and the USB connection is displayed on the iPod's screen.
5. Open iTunes (if it hasn't opened automatically) and a message stating that it has found an iPod that is in recovery mode. (If you don't get this message and the iPod just boots like normal, then the timing between connecting the iPod and holding the home button wasn't fast enough. Try again from step #1).
6. Click the "Restore" button and iTunes will automatically download and install the latest iOS version for your iPod.
The process should take about 20-45 mins, depending on your internet connection. Once complete, the iPod will reboot and your iPod will be restored to factory settings.
Since iTunes requires that all data be synced through there, if you have made any backups to your iPod, you'll be able to re-sync your information back to your iPod at this time.

This is how the the procedure goes for the ipod touch:
- While plugged into ITunes, Hold down the power and home keys down for 10+ seconds. - - Screen will go black
- Release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says 'We have detected an itouch in recovery mode'
- Restore as normal via iTunes

All you must do is access itunes and restore you iTouch. It will remove the password and such. However you will lose everything you have on your itouch now.

I forgot my password to my 8gb ipod touch


Hello.
Welcome to Fixya Community.

You need to restore it with iTunes, but you can't restore an iPod While its Locked With a password, well in order to Force it to Restore you shud put it on Recovery Mode.
Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into iTunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.
and that will reset you configuration including Your Password.
Thank you For Using Fixya.
Good Luck.

My ipod is disabled


While your itouch is connected to your computer, and itunes is open, press and hold the sleep/off button (the one on the top of the itouch) until the slider comes up on the screen. Slide the slider to turn off the itouch. Now, press and hold the home button (the one right below the screen) and at the same time, press the off/sleep button again. Hold both until you see your itunes page bring up a "restore" feature. Unfortunately, when restoring, you will lose all data (songs, etc..) Hopefully, you have this data in itunes and can easily download it back onto your itouch. This is the only thing that works. Sucks that you lose everything, but at least your itouch will once again work....

My iTouch is disabled but my dad deleted my iTunes off my laptop:


if your father deleted your song library then you will have to download your music again.
same with your apps
if your restore all that will do is load a new copy of your ipod software in the ipod.
it won't help with getting your songs back
it will help with removing the password lock.

Itouch unlock password


Hi,

unfortunately you will have to restore your ipod. Just connect it to your computer, and within itunes select the restore option on the ipod page.

The ipod should be able to be restored by the computer that last synced it.

Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,

My itouch is disabled and i dont remember my password. i try 2 connect it to my computer thru itunes but it wont show up because it says it is locked.


i had the same problem. this is all the steps needed, calling apple isnt necessary.
first: press down on the top power button and on the menu button
second: keep pressing, eventually the screen to turn it off will pop out. ignore it and keep pressing.
third: the itouch will turn off completely but dont stop pressing
fourth: the apple sign will come out. you may now release.
fifth: now you should be able to connect to itunes that will restore your ipod.

your welcome.

oh and get some ice for your fingers . lol.
