The iPod 4G (fourth generation) is easy to restore to factory settings. This may reinstall the software, and it always wipes all music, video and other data from the iPod. Restoring is the most effective way to fix problems with the iPod that haven't been fixed through traditional troubleshooting. You will not be able to retrieve data from your iPod 4G once it's restored, so make sure you back up your information first.
Plug your iPod 4G into your computer with its dock connector USB cable. Install the most recent version of iTunes and open iTunes. Wait a moment for your iPod to appear in the side bar. Click on your iPod in the side bar and select "Restore." A pop-up window will ask if you're sure you want to clear your iPod and restore to factory settings. Click "Continue" and enter your password, if prompted. Leave the iPod untouched and on a flat surface while it restores to original settings. It's important that you don't try to disconnect or use the iPod while it's restoring. You'll see a progress bar either on the iPod or your computer that indicates how far along the process is. Select your new syncing settings (automatic sync or manual) when prompted after the restore is complete.

Unfortunately if your iPod Touch is locked and you cannot recall the pass code to unlock it, you will have to perform a factory restore, in order to clear your iPod Touch of that previous pass code.
The good thing is, even though you will wipe all your current data on your iPod Touch, after the factory restore, you can restore your most current back up through iTunes to restore the data back to your iPod.
To restore your iPod Touch is simple: * Be sure you restore your iPod Touch on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod Touch backup files or stored.
* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes. • Be sure your iPod Touch is correctly connected to computer or notebook .
• Finally, in the left column under DEVICES, click on your iPod Touch, then click on Restore under the Summary tab.
* Allow the process to complete and your iPod Touch will be restored to its original factory default settings.
* Now simply re-sync your iPod Touch with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play. When you sync after the restore, iTunes will look for your iPod Touch's previous backup and per your permission, will restore your most recent backup to your device. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This time, when you set up your pass code... Make sure to write it down somewhere or in a place that is easily accessible and a in a place that you won't soon forget.
to update your ipod touch second gen to 4.1 version you must connect to your itunes account on your computer with ipod attatched sync all apps, music, videos, everything because it will delete everything and needs everything backed up. then go to your ipod on itunes and it will say update, click it it will take around half an hour to update and restore you ipod fully. This worked for my ipod touch gen 2, it kept saying when i tried to update i still have things on my ipod not synced to itunes when i have synced multiple times but it updated ok and i do not notice anything missing. this is all i know about this i hope it helps.
Hello, This happened to mine once. so I tried pressing the Middle Button and the power Button together at the same time, held for 5-10 seconds and Voila! Your iPod is free of the white screen of death!!!! :))
I've tried this and mine still doesnt work HELP i heard if u leave it charging over night it might help it ????
It let you restore it and you still get "unable to sync as playlist on ipod has changed"? I think that the restore was an erase and install and complete re-Sync of it. I think you need to try the restore function again and make sure it completely re-syncs before trying to do anything with it.
have you tred resetting it to reset the ipod without losing anything hold the home and power buton at the same time or until the ipod turns off then a few sec later youll see the apple logo and your ipod should now be able to sync.
plug ipod up to pc,,,let itunes open uo....left side of screen on itunes, you pc folder (look under this and click games folder)....all the games u have on itunes is here...now click & drag the game folder down to ipod (dont release until you get to ipod games)....done ...
Itunes can sync infinite ipods and should have no trouble, so there isnt a problem with having two ipods. Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into
itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol
appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore
mode". this will get rid of any previous users' settings, and hopefully fix anything preventing itunes from syncing with your ipod.
