Font.f1 { font: 12px Helvetica; } Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

The simplest approach to resolving an issue like this with your iPod Touch is to perform a reset, which in essence "reboots" your iPhone and can improve its performance. Not to worry, a hard reset process does not endanger any of your playlists, videos, podcasts, etc., which you may have on your iPod Touch.

All you need to do is press the Sleep button, located at the top of your iPod Touch and then the Home button located at the bottom center-most location of your iPod.

Hold both buttons down at the same time for approximately 10 seconds. Within that time you should see an Apple icon appear as your iPod Touch attempts to reboot. Allow it to go back to your main screen. Now attempt to use the device as you normally would and see if it improves.

I would also recommend you connect your iPod Touch to your computer and check in iTunes- if I am not mistaken, there is a new iOS 4.3 update just released from Apple, that you can run, if you have not done so already. It is always good to keep your iPod Touch up to date with the software updates, as those updates can resolve the bugs of the previous iOS version.

This should help, but please feel free to let me know if it does not. Always glad to assist!

My hard drive on my mac was changed how do i down load the files from my 4g i dont want to loose pictures

You may try this ipod transfer, it can help you copy songs, videos, movie, photos, playlists, podcasts from iPod to computer iTunes. It supports all series of iPod including iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Classic, iPod Shuffle, even the iPhone. it's safe and works pretty well for me. Moreover, it will keep the songs play information - rating, playcount, name, artist, playlist, etc. No other iPod transfer can do that
Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.

Ipod touch wound sync to my computer. i had a nano first. when i tryed to sync my ipod touch i did not reg. to my computer, i just tryed to copy my music to the new ipod. my daughter shares our music from...

Open iTunes (without iPod connected). Create a new playlist and copy songs you want on your iPod into that list. Next connect your iPod. Once iTunes recognizes your iPod then go to the music tab and click on 'sync playlist only' and chose the new playlist that you created. Click sync. Only the songs in your new playlist should be copied to your iPod.

Ipod touch keeps repeating songs on all playlists

when you are playing a track holding the iPod Upright on the Left hand side under the Track Time there is a Symbol with two arrows in a circle. If this is Blue you are on Repeat All, Blue with a 1 is repeat Track. You want it to be White. On the Right is Shuffle. Good Luck!

I touch wont sync properly

Try just clicking and dragging the playlist onto the ipod which will get the songs on there for you. When you do sync, I do not think it transfers playlist automatically. You have to do it yourself.

Plug your Ipod into your computer and load up Itunes. Select restore Ipod to factory settings under Itunes. This will reset your Ipod and allow you to reload the songs.

When I plug my first generation ipod nano into my new LG E500 laptop the ipod freezes and will not charge. I have to reset my ipod to get it working again. Does anyone know why??

You may need the latest version of itunes for your laptop to recognise it. Download it here (its free), it will have the latest drivers for your ipod too.

Once it is loaded, plug your ipod back into the comuputer and reset it yourself from the ipod settings. Create a playlist/library of music by adding music to itunes, then sync your ipod with your library/playlist.

I hope this helps

Ipod first generation 5000 songs

To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector)ipodg1-2.gif ipodg3.gif
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
