SOURCE: iPod touch freezes

Hello! This problem is if you messed around with your iPod Touch a lot like hacking it. I hacked it before so I restored it so now it is very good! It is now version 1.1.2. Okay, if you want to fix this problem, hold the home button and the power button for 20-30 seconds until a yellow exclamation mark shows up to tell you to connect to iTunes, this worked for my friend's screwed up iPod Touch. Try this method okay? After you connected it to iTunes, check for updates right away and there you go!

Hope this works!

SOURCE: Syncing my itouch with itunes

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.

SOURCE: My iPod Touch, will not charge, or sync.

The first thing i would do is try using another USB slot. if this does not work try hooking your ipod into another computer and see if it syncs up there. Also i would try another cable to see if that works. If all of that does not work then you may have a bad system board for your ipod. Check with apple to see if your unit is still under warranty with this site: https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

Ipod is disabled, how do i restart it ?


The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer.

It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen.

If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled.
To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer.

Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window.

Click the "Restore" button.

If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup.

If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings.

Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device.

iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

or
A hard reset restores your iPod Touch to its original factory settings.
This is useful when your iPod Touch is disabled and won't turn on or off, but all your data is erased.

Luckily, you can restore your data with iTunes after you've performed the reset.
Once you've performed the reset, your iPod is wiped clean and iTunes prompts you to restore the settings from your last sync.

Plug the iPod into your computer and wait at least 10 minutes.
This allows the battery to recharge in case it has drained.

This could fix your disabled iPod, if the problem was caused by a dead battery.
Click "OK" if your computer opens a "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Depending on your version of iTunes, the message may indicate the iPod is in "recovery mode" and you need to restore the device.

ITunes opens and resets your iPod for you.
Unplug the iPod from your computer if you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Make sure the iPod is charged before you attempt the hard reset.
Press and hold both the On/Off/Wake button and the Home button on your iPod.

Keep the buttons pressed.
Wait for the Apple logo to appear, it may take 10 seconds or longer.

When you see it, release the On/Off/Wake button but keep the Home button pressed.
Release the Home button when you see a picture of a USB cable with an arrow pointing to the iTunes logo.

Plug your iPod back into the computer.
The iTunes "recovery mode" message will appear.

Click "OK" to complete the reset.

My ipod wont turn in. When I hook it to the computer it cuts on to charge and It wont even cut on. Also when I switch to on, it still wont turn on any ideas to the problem????


It really depends on what kind of iPod you actually have. If you have an iPod touch, a hard reset might do the trick.
Hold both the power and the home buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the apple logo. Then the iPod will be restored to factory settings.
But don't worry, all you items will be restored once you re-sync it to iTunes

Starting up with anew ipod touch


To use iPod touch, you need:
  1. A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
  • Mac OS X version 10.4.10 or later
  • Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later, Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition.
  • iTunes 7.6 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
  • iTunes Store account (to purchase music over Wi-Fi)
  • An Internet connection
Before you can use any of the iPod touch features, you must use iTunes to set up iPod touch. You can also register iPod touch and create an iTunes Store account.
  1. Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
  2. Connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the included cable. The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPod touch to a USB 2.0 port on
    your computer
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to set up iPod touch and sync your music, video, photos, and other content. Your computer must be connected to the Internet. By default, iTunes automatically syncs all songs and videos in your iTunes library to
    iPod touch. If you have more content in your library than will fit on iPod touch, iTunes alerts you that it can’t sync your content. You’ll need to use iTunes to select some of your songs, videos, and other content to sync.
When you get back to France, you'll need sync it with your PC. Download the latest version of iTunes then sync your iPod with your computer.

My ipod won't let me go back to main menu and i can't turn it off


The easiest solution is to restore your ipod. This will erase everything on it and reset it back to factory defaults. You will need to sync when complete to copy your songs / apps / settings back over. Make sure you've synced recently before you try this procedure.

Press and hold the power button and the home button at the same time. Continue holding. Your ipod touch will power off. Wait a few seconds, and power it back on. Is it working now?

If not, turn your ipod back off then press and hold the Home button. Reconnect the USB cable to the ipod touch and your computer. When you reconnect the USB to ipod, the device should then power on.

Continue holding the Home button while it starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.

When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message. Click OK and iTunes will restore your ipod to factory defaults and re-sync your data.

If this is helpful, please rate me accordingly. If not, let me know and I'll see if I can offer other suggestions.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


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 completely reset your ipod, hopefully fixing any bugs or problems in it. also, you will lose all data saved on the ipod that isn't also backed up by itunes. Music, pictures, and video can be re-synced.

I have an iphone I downloaded the ants application which seems to have closed the phone down completely I cant get to restore


Products Affected iPhone, iPod touch
Symptoms that may have occurred with an unsuccessful restore may include a frozen screen—either at the Apple logo or some other application—or the device may repeatedly reset.
  1. Verify you have iTunes 7.5 or later. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch.
  3. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
  4. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting USB cable. When you reconnect USB, the device should then power on.

    Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again. ht1808_01.jpg
  5. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  6. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: ht1808_02.jpgIf you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore iPhone or iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available). See document 305744, "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software."
If you are still unable to restore the iPhone using this method, check Apple support for further troubleshooting and/or service options.
Note: If you sync both an iPhone and an iPod touch to the same computer, make sure you select the correct backup to restore your settings from (don't select an iPhone backup if you have an iPod touch and don't select an iPod touch backup if you have an iPhone).
