ITunes closes when I put in iPod

Whenever I put my ipod USB into itunes prior to synching, the icon shows up that the ipod has been recognised, but then 2 seconds later the entire Itunes application shuts down. So, I can't sync my music. I have tried resetting my ipod and have downloaded the latest iTunes version (7.3.2) and it still happens. I have a Mac so it seems strange they are not compatable.

Re: iTunes closes when I put in iPod

Try checking for ipod for any corrupted files. If you use P2P software to "pirate" music, try deleting those files. Also try a different usb port, and if you are using a hub, plug directly into the computer.....which Mac do you have btw?

Hope this helps.

I just upgraded to 3.1.1 on my ipod touch 1g. an error message popped up in itunes and my ipod is now stuck at the "connect to itunes" screen. it does not show up in itunes. resetting it does nothing.

Had this problem with itouch 2g as well. Managed to get it back to the way it was like this:
Log onto another account that does not have the 3.1.1 software downloaded. Hold down the Home button and double-click the itunes icon. Wait for itunes to start and it should recognise your ipod is attempting to restore. It should restore it to the previous free firmware version. When itunes prompts you to name your ipod, close itunes, log out, unplug the ipod and log back into your original account. Start itunes and plug the ipod in. It will offer to restore your settings. Restore your settings but refuse the update to firmware 3.1.1 It will then synch as previously.
Still looking to see if there's a way to get 3.1.1 working!

Ipod wont turn on

If you just purchased it, you will need to install iTunes on your computer and connect the new Touch to the PC after iTunes installs. When you use your Touch for the first time, it needs to synch/register via iTunes first.
Also, to unlock it, just slide the slider on the bottom of the screen after synching with iTunes.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod

The best solution to fix this problem is really simple. Only works on Ipod Nano or any other Ipod [Except Touch And Shuffle]. All you gotta do is:

1. Keep Ipod with the usb cable connected to your computer.

2. Reset your Ipod by pressing the round button and menu button at the same time and hold it for about 3 to 5 seconds.

3. After the Ipod reset is complete it should show the icon or itunes should pop up with the icon and your done. Works almost 100% of the time.

Ipod wont show up on itunes

i had the exact same problem with my ipod.

whenever i plugged my ipod in to my computer, it just charged and itunes didnt reconize my ipod.

so i saw the comment on here that said to reset your ipod when it was plugged into your computer with itunes open and it worked!!

(to reset your ipod press the menu button and the center button at the same time and hold them down for a couple of seconds till the screen goes black)

i hope this works for anyone else who has the same problem with thier ipod!!
