You need to connect it to a PC/Mac to register that iPod with Apple before you can even use it.

    I have actually seen it where the computer may match what is needed to have the iPod touch work properly, but the computer would not see it since the computer was too old...

    Try connecting it to another (newer) computer to see if the iPod works on and connects to that one (maybe a friends computer). If it doesn't, then it looks like the iPod maybe faulty.

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

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.

My Itouch (1st Gen) has recently stopped working on all USB cables, so now the only way i could charge it was an Ihome rip off. But now, my itouch is disabed and to try again in 5000000 minutes.


ok so u have to do a FULL MASTER RESET. Turn off the ipod and then once its off hold down the Home button (circle button at bottom) This will put the apple icon on the screen. Once that appears immediately plug in a USB cord. This should bypass the disable and passwords and then send you straight to resetting the ipod. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK
