Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

ITunes closes when I put in iPod

Whenever I put my ipod USB into itunes prior to synching, the icon shows up that the ipod has been recognised, but then 2 seconds later the entire Itunes application shuts down. So, I can't sync my music. I have tried resetting my ipod and have downloaded the latest iTunes version (7.3.2) and it still happens. I have a Mac so it seems strange they are not compatable.

Try checking for ipod for any corrupted files. If you use P2P software to "pirate" music, try deleting those files. Also try a different usb port, and if you are using a hub, plug directly into the computer.....which Mac do you have btw?



Hope this helps.

I Pod Touch showing USB cable and an arrow for iTunes. I tried to Charge it or put it into DFU mode Hold the lock/power button for 15 seconds Then hold the lock/power button and the home button without...


sorry, that is the incorrect way to enter dfu mode. here is the correct way.
Step 1. Plug your ipod into your computer.
Step 2. Power off your ipod.
Step 3. hold the power button down for 3 seconds.
Step 4. while holding the power button, press and hold the home button for 10 seconds.
Step 5. While still holding the home button, release the power button AND CONTINUE HOLDING THE HOME BUTTON for 15 seconds.

your computer should recognize the device as in dfu mode, install the driver needed, and from then on, you should be able to restore.

Sources- i have had an ipod since the very first one, and i have extensive knowledge of jailbreaking and restoring troubles.

I just upgraded to 3.1.1 on my ipod touch 1g. an error message popped up in itunes and my ipod is now stuck at the "connect to itunes" screen. it does not show up in itunes. resetting it does nothing.


Had this problem with itouch 2g as well. Managed to get it back to the way it was like this:
Log onto another account that does not have the 3.1.1 software downloaded. Hold down the Home button and double-click the itunes icon. Wait for itunes to start and it should recognise your ipod is attempting to restore. It should restore it to the previous free firmware version. When itunes prompts you to name your ipod, close itunes, log out, unplug the ipod and log back into your original account. Start itunes and plug the ipod in. It will offer to restore your settings. Restore your settings but refuse the update to firmware 3.1.1 It will then synch as previously.
Still looking to see if there's a way to get 3.1.1 working!

to fix this you will need to erase all the data on the ipod(s).

plug the ipod into the computer using the included usb cable. open itunes (if it doesn't open automatically) in the column on the left side of the window there is an icon showing your ipod's name. click on it then click on the button that says "restore ipod"

WARNING: this will erase all the content on the ipod (you can put it back on later)

it will ask you to confirm. hit ok and keep your ipod plugged in as it restores it to it original state. pick the language you prefer and then load your music back on the device

Apple icon always on new ipod touch and session could not start


if that happened, then yes. then you could just buy a new one. but trust me, that's probably a defective ipod.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


The best solution to fix this problem is really simple. Only works on Ipod Nano or any other Ipod [Except Touch And Shuffle]. All you gotta do is:

1. Keep Ipod with the usb cable connected to your computer.

2. Reset your Ipod by pressing the round button and menu button at the same time and hold it for about 3 to 5 seconds.

3. After the Ipod reset is complete it should show the icon or itunes should pop up with the icon and your done. Works almost 100% of the time.
