Download itunes unless you have it already then just do what it says, connect it to your computer, start itunes, when it hooks up to your ipod click the ipod section and look for ipod update (this will restore your ipod to the updated software), if no updates are available click restore and do what it says, your music etc will be re synchronised.
good luck!!!

For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of itunes.
  • 2. Open itunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in itunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main itunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt itunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

How do you get rid of a itunes logo with a usb cord faceing it on the front of the ipod touch screen?


The ipod is in restore mode. You need to restore it by opening iTunes on your computer, then connect the iPod. iTunes will see it in restore mode, and there is a restore button. Click the restore and have it restore the iPod software on the iPod. That will fix it.
go to www.itunes.com if you need to download iTunes on your computer.
You will lose your iPod data, but you basically have already lost it.
