    my itunes wont read my ipod tuch how do i get it too read it?

  • Anonymous Feb 23, 2009

    I am locked out of my itouch. I have downloaded itunes on a different computer and plugged in the itouch. It won't open it because it is locked and I forgot the code. How do I override this and wipe out the old stuff and reset to factory standards? I have tried suggestions on this site but it keeps telling me to unlock first. I can't find the "sync" button on itunes.

    I had Itunes on my computer and synced it with my ipod touch which transferred all the songs and all. But i had to use the product recovery disc on my computer because it was acting up. o downloaded i tunes again because everything was deleted in the recovery. Now if i try transferring anything to my ipod touch (syncing) a screen pops up saying that i can only use my ipod touch with one i tunes. Is there anyway for me to go around having to delete everything stored in my ipod touch just to add more music? please email me at chicano01134@mocospace.com thank you and have a good day.

Itunes can sync infinite ipods and should have no trouble, so there isnt a problem with having two ipods. Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". this will get rid of any previous users' settings, and hopefully fix anything preventing itunes from syncing with your ipod.

How do i stop automatic sync ipod


If you have itunes set to "sync with this ipod over wifi" switch off your ipod before opening itunes. Then without your ipod connected to your computer open itunes and then go to preferences and under the devices tab there is an option to "prevent ipods, iphones, and ipads from syncing automatically" click on this and that should stop the automatic syncing. Hope this helps.

I forgot my password for my itouch that i bought from someone else? how can i get it again?


Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage
its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano.

My ipod nano (4gb) wont sync videos onto my ipod.


The videos need to be in itunes. If they are already i have some information that will hopefully be of use to you.


Last Modified: May 07, 2008 Article: HT1333 Old Article: 304680 Summary iTunes includes several options to automatically or manually sync videos to your iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd generation), or iPod (5th generation). Read this article to learn more about these two methods.
Products Affected iTunes, iPod nano (3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod (5th generation)
Syncing videos automatically Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Select your iPod in the DEVICES section of the iTunes Source list.

In the main iTunes browser window, select the Music tab. Select the checkbox labeled "Sync music" and verify that the "Include music videos" checkbox is also selected. You have the option to sync all songs and playlists or selected playlists.

Movies can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Movies tab and select the option to sync all movies, selected movies, or a certain number recent unwatched movies.

TV Shows can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the TV Shows tab and select the option to sync all TV shows or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent or unwatched.

Video Podcasts can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Podcasts tab select the option to sync all podcasts or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent, new or unplayed.

Click Apply and iTunes will begin syncing the content you've selected to your iPod. Tip: You can use the capacity bar at the bottom of the iPod settings window to determine how much free space is available. The size of a playlist can be determined by selecting it and looking at the bottom of the iTunes window.

The iTunes LCD will display the sync progress and notify you when the iPod sync is complete.



To disconnect your iPod, select it in the Source list and click the eject icon.
Syncing videos manually If your prefer not to automatically sync video content to your iPod, you can setup manual syncing.
Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Select your iPod in the DEVICES section of the iTunes Source list.

In the main iTunes browser window, select the Summary tab. Select the "Manually manage music and videos" option. This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs. Automatic syncing for Podcasts, Photos, Contacts, and Games can be individually disabled by selecting each of those tabs. Note: When manually managing iPod, disk use is enabled and iPod must always be manually ejected in iTunes before disconnecting.

Click Apply. To manually add music videos, movies or TV shows to your iPod, choose one of these categories under LIBRARY in the Source list. Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items on a Mac or Control-click items in Windows), then drag them onto your iPod icon in the Source list. To add a playlist, select it in the Source list and drag it onto your iPod in the same ways as a video or song.

When you are ready disconnect your iPod, select it in the Source list and click the eject icon.

Syncing my new computer with my itouch.


Hey, Id be happy to help :). Actually there is a way to have all the stuff on your Ipod touch to be in your computer. Although you can't those things on your computer by syncing it because your computer obviously won't let you. What you must do is, in your itunes program on your computer select Itunes store, and on the side you will see the option to sign in, now you must sign in with your apple or aol account. Once you are signed in, just go up to the top of the Itunes program where it says File, edit, view, etc . But up there you will see the "store" tab. Click on it, and under it you will see the "check for available downloads.." option. Click on it and a history of things you got of itunes with your account will pop up . You can view this history by clicking the "purchased" tab on the side bar of your Itunes program, if you click on it it will have listed, your apps, your bible, etc and it should be ( currently ) downloading every single item under there. :) After this, it will have all the things you ever got down in Itunes on your computer/itunes library. So now you can erase your Ipod touch and then you can plug it into your computer and sync all the stuff You have on there. Although, wait and see if you computer downloads all the things you have ever gotten before you erase your Ipod. Because I don't want you to wipe out your ipod and your computer not have your apps and etc . Thanks! and I hope this helps, and Id appreciate it if you rate my solution.

then perform restore

Restore
  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of 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 on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. 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 instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. 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.
