    Your battery might be dead, you can buy a new battery, or contact apple or your dealer for repairs, so incase its not the battery thats the problem you didn't just waste money on a new battery. They will get it fixed and save you alot of headache. But If you want I can direct you to a new battery and instructions on how to change it.



    let me know. Good luck.

Hello. my ipod touch (the old version) has been on the same screen for three weeks now. it says plug it into the computer into itunes. when i plug it into the computer itunes comes up. then a small...


try to restore your ipod. first put the ipod in DFU mode by holding the home and sleep button until the screen goes black, now let go of the power button and keep the home button depressed, after around 20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your computer as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode. iTunes should tell you it has detected a device that needs to be restored and if you follow the instructions in iTunes you should get a restored iPod.
Note: everything on your ipod gets deleted.

How do I Enable Disk Management for the iPod Touch


<p>If you want to use Disk Management to partition and format the iPod Touch, you must enable disk use on your iPod. By default, Apple iPod products configured to work with Apple's iTunes and not as portable drives on your computer. You can use iTunes on your hard drive mode to allow your iPod, allowing the computer to deal with and recognize the iPod as a portable unit. <br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable for iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Launch iTunes. Select your iPod from the "Devices" from the iTunes browser. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the "Summary" tab in the main iTunes window to change the settings for your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Go to the bottom of the Settings window and check the "Enable Disk Use". The computer recognizes the iPod Touch as a portable disk. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Quit iTunes. Run the Disk Management and check the disk devices connected to ensure that your iPod is displayed as a portable unit. <br />

Getting message error -40 cant connect to itunes on my ipod 2g a1288


1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.

2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)

3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.

4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.

5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.

6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device.

7. Restore ipod using itunes

No disk. how to get one. not get in i-pod


There is absolutely no need for a disk with your ipod. Head over to apple's website and download a copy of itunes.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/

It's a free download, free software. Itunes will instantly recognize your ipod and take you through the steps of setting it up and putting music on it.

30 gb ipod not connecting to computer.


If nobody has figured out this problem or if anybody else is having the same problem I have a solution that could possibly work. I had the same problem so I right clicked My Computer and went to Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, and then click on Device Manager. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus controllers look for anything that may have a yellow exclamation point. Mine said something like Apple Ipod Driver or something along those lines. Right click that and click Update Driver... Then click Next and it should update it for you and work fine. Hopefully this will help anybody that is having this problem.

Reboot your ipod in Disk Mode then try itunes again. Also make sure your itunes is setup so it boots up when it sees it. (that way you know it sees the device)

As far as seeing it "usb mass storage" that is a good sign. You maybe able to recover items with a good friend called LINUX which is compatable with apple software.

Disk Mode:
Hold the select and menu button and once the device turns off hold the select and play button and hold it until it says Disk Mode.

Once booted in Disk Mode try to connect via usb.
