Hi, can really say much about your problem now. I think i can help out.
First might not know if you connected it properly with the iTunes .

All i can do is togive you the right steps to connect iPod touch with iTunes. Hope that will help.

Below are the steps to use iPod with iTunes.

How to Use iTunes With an iPod

Using iTunes with an iPod is not difficult since iTunes are designed for iPods. Your iPod can use iTunes as well as other MP3 files with ease. Below is a list of steps to help you use iTunes with an iPod.

Turn on your computer and open your iTunes program.
Now connect your iPod with your FireWire. You should have received a compatible cord for connecting your computer to your iPod when you purchased it. Connect the cord to your iPod and then connect it to a USB port on your computer.

Use the "Set Up Assistant" to enter in a name for your iPod and select "Automatic Update" option if you want to put all of your songs on to your iPod. "Automatic Update" will allow you to update your iPod easily every time you add songs to iTunes.

Click on "Register" your iPod and enter in your product information on the iTunes Web site.

Click on "Done," which is located at the bottom of the box, and you will receive a message saying that your iPod is being updated.

When the update is finished, click on the "Eject iPod" button on the bottom of the page. You will be instructed to remove the iPod when it is safe to do so.

Unplug the FireWire from your computer first and then disconnect the wire from your iPod carefully.

Tips & Warnings

Choose "Manual" if you do not want all of your iTunes songs on your iPod. If you use
manual you can select which songs you want to transfer.

Your iPod will automatically update after linking for the first time.

In "Automatic Update" mode, you cannot edit your songs on your iPod.

Make sure you have enough memory on your iPod.

Have a nice day.

Cant get music on

a lot of the ipod's are a pain because they only want you to use their downloads and their music. If you are just trying to transfer music from your music on your computer to the ipod it won't except it. The music will show it transfered to the ipod but won't show up on it because apple with all of their ipods use a different format for their songs which only the ipod can read. I have tried every way around this and you just have to breakdown and go through itunes. You can take all your music you have on your computer now and put it on itunes then load it on your ipod and it will transfer fine. Good news is that itunes is free, lol.

I connect i pod with window vista and copy songs but when i disconect and turn on the ipod i dont find the songs that i copu

Are you putting the songs on the ipod through itunes? Ipods will not allow media to be put on the device through drag and drop(grabbing a song from your desktop, and droping it in the ipod folder). You have to use a program to put the songs on the ipod correctly. This can be done by useing Itunes. Go to If you have not purchased your songs with itunes, you will have to have itunes convert the songs for you. Once the songs are converted you should be able to load all the media you want onto your ipod. If you have any further questions feel free to contact

turn every program but itunes off. your firewall is interrupting your sync. close all programs or turn off your anti-virus and firewall so nothing can interrupt. keep me posted with results.
