  1. Back up your iPod Touch's data to your computer before the restore to prevent losing data. You'll need to reinstall it after the restore process.
  2. Connect to the internet and install the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website.
  3. Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to your computer.
  4. Pick "iPod Touch" in the Source pane of the iTunes program.
  5. Click on the Summary tab.
  6. Choose "Check for Update."
  7. Select "Restore" and follow the instructions to finish restoring your iPod Touch.
  8. Complete an Advanced Restore
  9. If following the steps in the previous section did not work, follow these steps to perform an advanced restore. Turn off the power on the iPod Touch.
  10. Plug the iPod Touch into your computer.
  11. Power on the iPod Touch.
  12. Press the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons together for 5 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  13. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue holding down the "Home" button. The iPod Touch should reboot, and iTunes will notice the iPod Touch in recovery mode.
  14. Return to the above section and follow those steps to restore your iPod Touch.

My friend gave me a i pod and it does not let me lisiten to songs or record song


Make sure you've got a headphone in if Its a 1st gen since the 1st gen does have external speakers.
If that doesn't work then its an issue and thats probably the reason your friend gave it to you. :|

Broke i pod touch


If it is a first gen machine you HAVE to replace the front screen which I wouldnt do yourself as you are likely to damage the small ribbons holding the main boards together. So, you are better off taking it to a professional.
But I'm guessing from your description that you have a 2nd gen. This has the digitiser on the front glass. If the glass cracks then the digitiser becomes damaged.
Basically, you are not going to be able to fix it without spending money on it. The cracked touch screen needs to be replaced and then all will work fine. The screen for the 2nd gen can be bought fairly cheaply on eBay and is easier to fit yourself than on the 1st gen. There are videos on YouTube showing how to do it without wrecking the iPod.
Hope you get it fixed ok
All the best

Apple i touch 8 gb speaker not working


maybe u have the 1st gen itouch. the 1st gen itouch doesnt havent speakers. Your friend probably have 2sec gen which has speakers. If u look at each other's itouch carefully, u'll notice a slight difference near the edges. your friend's itouch's edge is probably curved like in the 2sec gen one while urs probably isnt.
This answer is my best shot at helping ya. Good Luck!
