Ipod won't restore

I was charging my ipod via my laptop and the message that my ipod needed to be restored came up on itunes. Once itunes stated that it had done the restore and updated my ipod I could not access the ipod to download anything. Once charged I tried to check my ipod but all I get is 'connect to your computer. Use itunes to restore'. I have tried to restore 4 times but no luck. What should I do. Battery was very low when I started recharging this and I have not used it for a couple of months.

Thanks

Ipod's USB cable points to itunes icon on Ipod's screen and won't turn on. what can i do?


Hi tifftiffpup...
The ipod is requesting that you hook it up to Itunes...maybe for updates.
If nothing happens after you hook the ipod to itunes then you may have to do a restore.
You can restore you ipod but it will wipe all songs,video,messages,pictures,etc completely off the ipod...sometimes you have no choice but to do that and you have to reload everything back on...
Here is how you do a restore incase you do not know:


1...Make sure you have an Internet connection, you may need to download new updated versions of the iTunes or iPod Software.
2...Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
3...Open iTunes.
Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB 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.
You will see some information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes window.
6...Click Restore.
7...A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage one of the restore process has begun.
When this stage is done, iTunes will show one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
8...Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter this typically applies to older iPod models.
Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore this typically applies newer iPod models.
9...During part two of the restoreing process, the iPod will display an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display.
NOTE: It is very important that the iPod remain connected to the computer or iPod power adapter during this stage of the restore.
10...After the restore process is complete, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear.
It will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences.
Please take time to rate me.

I have a 5th generation iPod Doesn't Connect To Computer The Lights Not On On Ipod N Jus Showin That Message... "connect to your computer use itunes to restore connectez..."


Remember that the restore process deletes everything in your iPod-like your music, videos, photos...-. <br> 1. The first thing is to connect your iPod in recovery mode to the computer. Turn off you ipod. Before placing the iPod into recovery, you should verify that it is charged. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 8 seconds until the Apple logo appears. After the Apple logo appear, you can release the buttons. <br> 2. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and display "Do not disconnect". <br>
3. Open itunes. Itunes will display a message of a device connected in recovery mode. It should ask you automatically to start the restore process. If not, select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. At he right part, click on the Restore button. <br> 4. You will have 4 restore options, select restore option number 2. A progress bar will appear to indicate you the state of the restore process. When It finishes, disconnect the iPod and check if its shown on the computer again.

My ipod touch 4th generation says -ipod is disabled connect to itunes- tried that and itunes wouldnt open unless unlocked my ipod and i cant. I tried restoring it and itunes said ipod can not be restored...


"iPod is disabled - Connect to iTunes" . This is because someone(or something?) has tried to crack your password too many times, which causes Iphone/Ipod to automatically disable itself to protect your data.

To restore your iPod, you must connect your iPod to iTunes with your iPod connector table. Make sure it is on and has this message when you connect it to your computer. Once connected, iTunes should detect it as usual.

Once connected, make sure you have all the proper sync settings enabled - for example, applications, music, photos, etc. Change something so that the Sync button in the bottom right appears in the iTunes window. Then sync the data.

When syncing is finished, turn on your iPod / iPhone and you should notice that the message is gone. Type in your password and the disabled message should be gone.

If the message is still there, try holding the sleep and home button at the same time until the iPod turns off, then continue holding the sleep and home button until a screen with the iTunes logo and a picture of the connector cable appears. This will put your iPod in Restore mode. With this option, you must click the Restore button in iTunes, which will delete all your data on the iPod.

It say do not disconnect


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support.

In a case where you are receiving a Do not disconnect message and freezes in that state even if you disconnect your iPod, the usual remedy is to allow your iPod's battery to completely drain. Then connect the iPod back to your computer and allow it to completely recharge. At that point, connect it to iTunes and perform a restore,

A restore will restore your iPod back to its original factory settings, but once it does, you will have your iPod back and should also be able to restore your iPod back to one its previous backups via iTunes.

Try this procedure and let me know if this helps.

Regards,

- This Is generally how you ipod will come from the factory so do not worry.

When you download itunes from the website and connect for the first time - it is designed to unlock and have you register the ipod

*** if the ipod dose not show in itunes follow theses steps to force the ipod to show ****

This happens some times when the soft ware crashes. It is not generally a problem with the ipod directionally. You just need to restore the ipod, and this will put a new version of the software on.

Once at the computer you will need itunes open and your ipod connected

1) Make sure you have the latest vertion of itunes downloading
you can check this by going to { HELP>CHECK FOR UPDATES}

2) On the ipod hold the sleep wake button at the top and the home button on the bottom at the same time until you see the apple logo

3) Once you see the apple logo - release the sleep/wake button but remain holding the home button

4) You will see an error message from your computer

5) click ok - Then the restore button - the restore will take about 15- 20 minutes

7) after sync disconnect and use

I hoped this helped-

My ipod wont turn on


Hi,

If your ipod won't turn on then try these.make sure you click on the blue links for more info.

Make sure the Hold switch is off
  1. Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
  2. To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch.
  3. Press any button to turn on iPod.

Make sure the battery is charged iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
ts1383_2.jpg To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.
If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information.
Reset iPod If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost.
Let the iPod battery drain In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:
  1. Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours.
  2. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it.
Update iPod's software If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


If your ipod is not recognized by either the computer or itunes try putting the ipod into disc mode and reconnecting the ipod.
Make sure you have the latest version of itunes by opening itunes and in the top tool bar click on Help; you will then click on About itunes. If it is not itunes 8, you will need to update that first.
Here are the steps to putting an ipod into disc mode...
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
Once you have gotten the ipod into disc mode go ahead and connect it to the computer. It should show up in itunes at this point. So long as it does you will want to restore it, and just in case your not sure as to how to do that here are the steps for that as well...
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. 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. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password. 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). 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. 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.
After completing the restore process, eject the ipod and disconnect it. Reconnect it and see if it shows up normally again. I hope this resolves your issue :) CHEERS
