    No it wasn't. I had been using my IPOD with no problems in the airport waiting area just fine but when I turned it on again after take off that display came on. I could not use the IPOD at all on a cross country flight.

    When I got back home and connected to my itunes the problem cleared up. I was really annoyed.

My ipod only shows how to connect to Itunes THERE ARE NO APPS,AND Itunes does not reconize it


If you iPod Touch is showing an iTunes logo with a USB cord at the bottom, then you iPod is in recovery mode.

You'll need to plug the iPod Touch into a computer with iTunes installed. iTunes will automatically tell you it's in recovery mode and give you the option to restore the device.

This will put new software on the iPod and it will be set back to factory settings.

When this stage is done, iTunes will show one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
8...Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter this typically applies to older iPod models.
Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore this typically applies newer iPod models.
9...During part two of the restoreing process, the iPod will display an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display.

My iPod touch says connect to iTunes but when I connect it to iTunes it cant open my iPod because of a password but I can't type it in because of the connect to iTunes screen. What do I Do?


Two choices:
Plug in your iPod
Go to "My Computer"
Go to your iPod's drive (F for me) Make sure you can see all hidden folders (If you aren't sure go to Tools, Folder Options, View Tab, and check Show) After that click iPod_Control Click the folder called "Device" And then change it from _locked, to _unlocked

Or
Follow these instructions to reset your iPod to its factory settings

Ipod not getting connected to itunes nor getting charged, and please recommend which ipod converter to download. Thank you in advance my ipod is not charged, when connected to a computer


hello!

if your IPod touch is not connected to itunes, please try the ff:

Check the iPod touch Display
-- When you connect iPod touch to your computer, the iPod touch should display an image or message on the display

-- If you do not see any image, check some basic troubleshooting here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1737
-- If you see a message on the screen, this indicates that the iPod touch does not have sufficient battery charge to operate and will need to be charged for several minutes before it can be recognized in iTunes.

Verify Windows PC System Requirements

--iPod touch requires iTunes 7.4 or later
Check USB Connections

-- iPod touch requires USB 2.0 to function properly
-- Try connecting iPod touch to a different USB port, preferably a port that is built-in to the computer instead of an external USB hub. Connecting iPod touch to your keyboard's USB ports is not recommended.

Restart your PC

-- In some cases, your computer's USB ports may become temporarily disabled or you may experience other software related issues. Restarting your PC is an easy troubleshooting step that may resolve this issue.

Verify iPod touch Driver/Service Installation

-- iPod touch requires two important pieces of software to operate properly on Windows. First, the driver must be installed; for iPod touch the driver is USBAAPL.SYS. Second, Apple Mobile Device Support must be installed as a Windows Service.
