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.

Re: iTunes closes when I put in iPod
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?

Download itunes from the apple website it is freely available at www.apple.com/itunes once downloaded open it and then plug your ipod into the computer with your supplied usb cable. Your ipod will show up under devices and then you will be able to synch with your ipod
use itunes to put the songs on your ipod it freely downloadable at the apple website at
Once installed it will ask you if you want to put any mp3s on itunes once they are there you can then drag songs onto your ipod once connected by your usb cable. Or use ipod panel to synch songs from there.
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!
If you just purchased it, you will need to install iTunes on your computer and connect the new Touch to the PC after iTunes installs. When you use your Touch for the first time, it needs to synch/register via iTunes first. Also, to unlock it, just slide the slider on the bottom of the screen after synching with iTunes.
are you using the same windows account / itunes as your wife? if so her ipod may be primary...if you & wife have different windows accounts....you can bring up itunes set up your very own (you will be able to add/delete all the songs you want) hope this works out for you
