Reprogram ipod


Plug your iPod to your computer and open iTunes, if iTunes doesn't open automatically.

If there is a new version of the firmware for your iPod, then iTunes gives you a pop-up message saying so.


Click "Update" if there is a newer version of the iPod firmware available to download.

If there is no new firmware, or you want to downgrade the firmware, then skip this step.


Download the iPod firmware you want to reprogram you iPod with from the Internet.

Websites such as Modifymyi, iClarified and Felixbruns (see Resources at bottom).


Right-click on the "Restore" button in iTunes and select the firmware for the iPod that you downloaded.

ITunes then backs up the music in your iPod, reprograms the iPod with the new firmware and then restores your iPod.

My ipod touch wont play music on my docking station it used to it still charges it help


I had this problem too. You're going to have to restore it with iTunes.
  1. Plug your iPod into your computer and sync it with iTunes.
  2. Go to the "Summary" tab and choose restore.
  3. Let iTunes do its thing and try it on you dock again.
If that doesn't work then I would suggest taking it on and off of the docking station until it works. I know this sounds really primitive but this is what I ended up doing and now it works fine.
One last thing, if you recently upgraded your iPod's firmware then that might be what is messing you up. Sometimes docks aren't compatible with the newer firmware Apple puts out so you might have to buy a new dock unfortunately. But if your iPod was jailbroken on a past firmware you can use this video to downgrade it to when it worked with your dock.

Can't sync ipod touch


If you haven't already, Uninstall your itunes and download a clean version.
install the clean version of itunes and try your ipod again.
you can get a clean version at www.apple.com/itunes/

It appears your install is corrupt.
also have you updated your touch recently.
if it is jailbroken you should be able to update it to a newer version.
If your version is to old, it maynot be compatible with the newer versions of itunes.
They are constantly trying to thwart the jailbreak and unlocked ipod and iphones.

Check your version and update to something newer if the re-install of itunes doesn't help.

Ipod firmware


updateing the firmware is very similiar to a restore

Restore
  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
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.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
At some point here you should be able to download a update from apple if available.

  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
