If you check carefully there is a reset small hole on the ipod which can be pushed in with a office pin to reset. This is when your ipod has hung up as the present case.
So just check this out press on for a few seconds and the ipod will come back to life.
please also see that only recognisable files are loaded with the itunes.

How to set up back up in my apple miniipad?

Do you have a mini Ipad ? Anyways to back up your device you should go in settings first to check if you granted the permission to back up your device.
once there each time your device will be charging and on wifi mode it will be an automatic operation and you will never loose anything.
other then that you can also attach your device on any computer but it is a bit more complicated because you need to download first itunes then by a USB cable you will be able to perform an immediate backup clicking on a back up butyon in the itunes app.
if any problem do not hesitate to contact me again!

Reset an iPod 32GB
Resetting a 32 GB iPod touch is a frightening prospect.
The restoration process deletes all data, including applications, music, movies and everything else when the device is restored to factory standard condition.
Luckily, iTunes gives you the ability to back up your data before wiping the device clean.
This means if your device locks up regularly and is functioning poorly, or you've forgotten your password and you can't get in, you can wipe your iPod Touch clean and get things moving again.

Launch iTunes on your computer and connect your iPod Touch using the USB cable provided with the device.
Select your iPod from the "Devices" list in iTunes and click the "Summary" tab.
Click "Restore."

Click "Back Up" if you wish to back up your data before wiping the device clean.
This is your last chance to save anything that hasn't yet been backed up to your computer.
Click "Don't Back Up" if you would rather skip straight to the reset.

Click "Restore" and wait while iTunes formats your iPod Touch and reinstalls the factory standard software.
Click "OK" when the process is complete.

Leave your device connected to the computer while it restarts.
When it is again visible in the iTunes device list, the process is complete.

How do i unlock security code on my ipod 4

1. Launch the Safari Web browser on your iPod touch 32GB by tapping its icon on the home screen.
2. Navigate to the "JailbreakMe" website. A page displays with details of the Cydia application store.
3. Tap the "Free" button in the upper right corner of the page and then tap it again when the text changes to "Install." Cydia downloads to your iPod touch 32GB and the jailbreaking process begins.
4. Launch Cydia after installation has completed. Tap the "Complete Upgrade" button in the pop-up dialog box. The latest version of Cydia installs, and the iPod touch 32GB reboots to complete the jailbreaking process.

Jailbreaking an Apple device is a process that enables users of iOS devices, such as iPhones and iPods.

The games that i tried to install on my ipod touch only, it installed on the computer only not my ipod touch why is this happening

If you purchased these games from the App Store through the iTunes program, you just need to sync iPod Touch. Connect your device to the computer and allow iTunes to run. It should automatically synchronize and put the games onto your device.

When I turn on the ipod it says locked and disabled and connect to itunes! what do I do to unlock and reconnect??

Plug the iPod touch into the computer with the USB Dock connector. Once it is connected to the computer turn off the iPod touch by holding the power button down on the top of the device until you see the "Slide to Power Off" on the screen. Power Off the Device. Once the device is off (and still plugged in) hold down the home button and keep holding it while pressing the power button to turn on the device. Continue holding the home button until you see the screen on the iPod Touch Say "Connect to iTunes" at which point you should launch iTunes on your PC/Mac if it has not already loaded.

My ipod wont turn on and before it turned off on me i was playing a game and the screen went white how do i turn it back on ?

Plug your device in for several hours before attempting to turn it back on. Then you may want to turn the unit on while the ipod is NOT plugged in.

My ipod touch goes to a back screen then it goes to a white screen and keeps repeating

Welcome to Fixya

This problem is called the white screen of death. To solve this, you should press the Home button and the Power button together for about 30 - 40 seconds. This process is called hard reboot. You can also try to restore the factory settings by plugging the device to you computer and restore it using itunes.

Thank you!
