Plug it into itunes, and click restore when itunes detects it. Click yes if it asks you to upgrade.

If that doesn't work, and returns an error enter DFU mode (Google for instructions). If you still cant restore in DFU mode, or if you get error code :20-29, you need to bring it back to apple for a replacement because it is a hardware problem.

When i plug my ipod on to itunes it wont show up


Sometimes your iPod fails to display in iTunes, which will keep you from being able to transfer songs from your computer to your iPod. If this happens, there are a number of steps you can take to resolve the issue.
Is it the iPod? Your iPod could fail to show in iTunes for a variety of reasons and this issue can be resolved by something as simple as rebooting your iPod. To reboot your iPod, first lay it on a flat surface. Using your thumb and index finger, press the play and menu button at the same time. If done correctly, your iPod screen will go blank and then you'll see the Apple logo. Is it the USB cable? Your iPod could fail to show in iTunes if you are using a defective USB cable. Try connecting your iPod to another computer that has iTunes installed using the same USB cable. If iPod again fails to show in iTunes, replace the USB cable. Is it my computer? One of the most common reasons your iPod doesn't show in iTunes is because your computer doesn't recognize your iPod is connected. Troubleshooting your computer/iPod connection Disconnect your iPod from the computer and reconnect. If your iPod still doesn't appear in iTunes, disconnect your iPod and reboot your machine. Once your computer has restarted, reconnect the iPod. Is it iTunes? Your iPod could be fail to display in iTunes if there is a issue with your iTunes program. If there is a problem with iTunes you can try updating the software to the most recent version. If that doesn't resolve your problem, re-install iTunes. b> http://www.itunes.com/ b> http://www.apple.com/support b> iPod Won't Connect to iTunes b> Apple's iTunes software contains mechanisms specially designed to sync with your iPod, allowing you to transfer music, videos and other media from your computer. If you find that iTunes does not recognize or allow you to access your iPod, then you cannot perform some of the device's most fundamental functions. Fortunately you can often resolve this problem without expensive maintenance, simply by doing a bit of troubleshooting and determining the cause of your connectivity problem.

Try resetting your iPod. Apple recommends this as a first step in troubleshooting an iPod not appearing in iTunes, since a quick reset will often restore functionality. If you use a click wheel iPod, hold down the "Menu" and center buttons until the Apple logo appears on your screen. For the iPod Touch, hold your "Home" button and "Sleep" button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Charge your iPod battery. If your battery has absolutely no power left, your iPod will often remain unresponsive even when plugged into iTunes. Try charging for three to four hours and then try connecting again. Plug your iPod into your computer using a different USB port. Sometimes a failed connection can mean you have a faulty USB port, so try plugging your USB cable into a different port and see if the iPod appears in iTunes. Verify that you have the latest version of iTunes. Visit the iTunes page Apple.com and check to see the latest version available. If you do not know which version currently runs on your computer, click "About iTunes." For Mac users, this option will appear under 'iTunes" on your menu bar. For Windows users, the option will appear under "Help" on your menu bar. Download the latest version of iTunes if necessary. Reconfigure your iPod service. If running iTunes on a Windows computer, click "Start > My Computer > Manage," and select "Services and Applications." Under "Services," select "iPod Service" and click "Stop." Leave the window open and connect your iPod to your computer. When your iPod shows up on your computer, click "Start." Reinstall iTunes. If simply updating iTunes does not work, you may have defective software. Try removing the program from your computer and completely and reinstalling it.

It needs to be plugged into a computer running iTunes using the USB cable that came with it.

Once you do that, you can create an account at the iTunes store and download music, video and applications.

Ipod won't upload shows/periodicals & podcasts from my itunes library


Try these troubleshooting steps. Steps 1-3 are for if you can't connect to iTunes in general.

1. Make sure you have the most recent version of iTunes. The iTunes should let you know when a version has been released, with full assumption you have internet connection.
2. Use a different USB cable
3. Clean both male and female ends of the USB cable of particle such as dust
4. Sometimes, you will have to manually put the movies on the iPod, as in, you must select the movies (usually just check a box) then go to file and "sync iPod".

If none of the above work/didn't work/didn't help at all, let me know.

Ipod wont show up on itunes


i had the exact same problem with my ipod.

whenever i plugged my ipod in to my computer, it just charged and itunes didnt reconize my ipod.

so i saw the comment on here that said to reset your ipod when it was plugged into your computer with itunes open and it worked!!

(to reset your ipod press the menu button and the center button at the same time and hold them down for a couple of seconds till the screen goes black)

i hope this works for anyone else who has the same problem with thier ipod!!
