Itouch not reconized

1. Try another USB cord or USB cable.
2. Restrart your computer for a try.
3. Reset or restore your iPod for a try, this way can fix many general iPod problems.
4. Update your iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
5. You may try this iPod transfer, it's a nice iTunes alternative that can help you upload music and video to iPod, I always use it to sync my iPod when my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, it's easy to use and works pretty well Take your iPod to Apple store, the technical support may help you fix the problem.

Iforgot my ipod password and user name and itunes


there are two options by which you can unblock the ipod. Follow any of the procedures tomorrow.
Unlock with the Primary Computer
  1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
  2. Open itunes and sync the iPod as normal.
  3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by Restoring
  1. Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod.
  2. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.
  3. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.

Is this your first time using the iPod since buying this from ebay? There are two ways on how you can do this:
1. By connecting it to the primary computer and syncing it with iTunes. Please take note that this needs to be the primary computer you have connected it with.
2. If it is not, then your final resort would be to do a factory reset of the iPod. This will delete all files, music etc on your iPod and will restore it to factory default. You need to use the iPod updater to reset it.
Good luck.

I found this on the ipod forum on Apples website. See their site for any further assistance.

Sometimes you can resolve it by doing the following:
- Download the .exe file from
- Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
- iTunes > Remove
- Open C:\Program Files (default location)
- Find "iTunes" (default folder name)
- Shift + Delete > OK
- Run a registry cleaner, such as PC Tools Desktop Maestro, to remove all old shortcuts and registry keys no longer valid on your computer.
- Start > Shut Down > Restart your computer
- Run the iTunes install program

This should fix the problem, however may require also to update your Windows software ( and download the latest Visual Basic Runtime executable. One time during my clean reinstall the iTunes software mentioned an error with a vb run executable and couldn't continue the install until I found it online.

download the latest version of itunes from (your music will be saved within the itunes music folder already). Once it has loaded okay close the itunes program. Turn your ipod on and plug it into your computer. This will automatically open up itunes. Reset your ipod within itunes under your ipod settings. Then update your ipod with your chosen library or playlist.

Hope this helps.

Unlock my ipod

I assume the unlocking your ipod is the combination that locks the screen and not the little white tab on the top of the iPod. By plugging the iPod into itunes it should unlock it. By restoring your iPod you erase the lock but also your music. If may stay unlocked when you remove it from the computer. Good luck.

Ipod video 30gb

It seems your ipod can't read the music your input, first, try to convert the music with audio ripper, don't forget to convert it to ipod format and drag to ipod throught itunes; after convert, if your ipod still can't read the songs, you can reinstall the itunes software.
