This means that your unit needs to be restored. Hook your unit up to itunes and restore the unit. Restoring the itouch does take some time to restore. You will lose all data on the unit, so hopefully you have all your music saved in itunes. If you were in the process of restoring the unit, just hook it back up to itunes and let it finish. If the unit is still having trouble after a restore, it could be a bad system board. Contact Apple and see if your unit is still under warranty with this site:

Your serial number can be found on the back of the unit toward the bottom.

If you have any other questions feel free to contact us at

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.

How do i unlock my ipod touch (8 gb) when it shows the itunes icon and usb cord?

Connect the ipod touch to your computer when it shows up on the screen, make sure you have itunes open, itunes will automatically restore your ipod to its factory default by erasing all the content from the ipod before you can gain access to it again.
at this time your ipod is in recovery mode.
Note: all contents on the ipod will be erased. wait till itunes download data from apple and reset your ipod and after that you can configure your ipod again.

Good Luck

On the ipod touch the itunes icon comes out and is a usb cable with an arow pointing to the itunes icon

make sure you're USB is unplugged. when you're at the screen with the itunes symbol and the usb arrow, hold down the home and sleep button until the screen goes black, at this point, keep holding for another 10 seconds. at this point your screen should look black as if the ipod is off. connect to the computer and itunes shoulds show a message like "itunes has just discovered an ipod in recovery mode" you'll be able to do a restore and regain use of your touch.
if this does not work, message me back.
