You need to do a restore.

How to restore iPod

  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download 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 available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. 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 present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

How to import pictures onto my iPod Touch


<p>Music Player Apple iPod Touch can store personal photos along with music files and video. ITunes, the same program as the applications of music and movies on the iPod's controls, you can also synchronize photos stored on a computer to the internal memory of the iPod Touch. The setup process requires only a single session, then iTunes will automatically update the photos on the device when synced folder content change. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Note the location of the photos you want to import into your computer's hard drive. You can consolidate the images easier to synchronize, or create a new folder specifically for the iPod photo. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod Touch to the computer via the USB cable supplied with the unit, and wait for iTunes to open. If the system is running a Windows operating system without iTunes installed, you can download from the Apple website. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the iPod Touch icon in the device list. Select the "Photos" tab. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click the "Sync Photos" check box and drop-down menu. Click "Select Folder" and navigate to the parent folder that holds the images and click OK. You do not select a specific subdirectory. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click the radio button "All Folders" to import all the photos on the parent folder, or click the "Selected folders" to select individual folders to import. The second option is chosen, place a check mark next to items in the "Folders" section. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Click "Apply" and wait for iTunes to the new data to synchronize with the iPod Touch.

How to transfer iPod music to a new computer


You've got a new computer. All your music and videos are on your iPod and you'd like to populate you new iTunes library from it. Unfortunately iTunes doesn't let you transfer anything other than your iTunes store purchases from your iPod.

To transfer all your iPod content, all your music, playlists, videos, podcasts and photos to your new iTunes library you will need to download software like TouchCopy.

Here is how to use TouchCopy

1. Download and Install TouchCopy. Downloads are free and are available for both PC and Mac.
2. Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop.
3. If the welcome window appears click past it until you get to a window asking to connect your iPod.
4. Connect your iPod or iPhone to your computer.
TouchCopy may start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTunes will not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running. These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.

Copying Music into iTunes
itunes_over.pngYou can now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want to select all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left and click on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar.

In a similar way, you can also use TouchCopy to copy your playlists, videos, podcasts, photos, contacts, calendars, notes and iPhone SMS.

When you are satisfied that all your iPod content is safely in iTunes, use iTunes to re-sync your iPod which will enable you to add new content to it.
