    I have a Ipod Touch and when I connect it to the unit in the car it says accessory attached and just says loading on the unit. I have the white cable from the unit to the Ipod.

    My mates Ipods work fine so it cant be the unit. What can I do wto the Ipod to make it work?

    Many thanks

    I would to know how I can gain control over my itouch when it is plugged into my car. Currently, the white screen displaying "accessory attached" appears, preventing me from manually changing songs through my itouch. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone...
Now I have to start by saying that this fix I dont know if someone has done it before or if its just a glitch that seems to just work perfectly but I did it one day by accident and BEHOLD I was able to use my iPod Touch to change songs in my car stereo and that accessory attached screen was no longer there.
Important!! There is only one catch you have to have summerboard or winterboard installed on your iPod which means you must have it jailbroken first.
So get in your car and do everything you usually do... Plug the iPod in of course the dreaded white accessory attached screen pops up instantly... right?
Now press the Home button and go to wherever you have winterboard and open it. Select something or deselect something... just make sure winterboard restarts springboard while its making the change you selected or deselected and THATS IT!.... go to music or your iPod icon on your iPod touch and select whatever song album artist you want. It will continue to work that way until you shut your car engine off. Good thing about this though is that the entire process takes all of 15 seconds to do so its not a pain to do it again once you are ready to drive away again!
This also works when watching videos or you tube in your car as well as playing games... the picture/game/video will be on your iPod screen while the sound is coming from your cars speakers.

Any questions just let me know...
I hope this works as well for all of you as it has for me. I do it every time I go anywhere now! lol

Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize

If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

ITouch 2nd g only plays music throuhg left side of all headphones

Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right
channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a
matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden
snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.

Eliminate this cause before submitting your Touch for much more
expensive remedies

Itouch charging

Hi there,

Some speaker systems which are only compatible for charging the ipod nanos and classics do not work with the iPod Touch and the iPhone, the internals are slighly different from one another which will not allow that speaker system to charge your iTouch.

To play & Charge your touch, i suggest getting a speaker system that supports the iPod touch platform.

Hope this helps ?!

Music on Itouch shows up in Itunes but Itouch says No content add from Itunes

First you need to restart your itouch.
Then, plug it in to your computer and wait for iTunes to pop up.
Select a few songs from your library or some movies that you have and drag them to your iPod.
What I did was, dragged some movies on my itouch to the tv shows folder as soon as i did this everything popped back on to my screen
