After Updating to IOS 5, My Ipod Touch 4th Gen will not Sync!!

I updated my Ipod Touch 4th Gen to the ne IOS yesterday, and as soon as I did, I ran into a BIG problem. It will not Sync up with my Apple content on my Itunes what-so ever. I cannot even install any of my Apps, download my music, nothing! I do not even know what to do at this point!

Contact a lawyer if you want to sue.
Otherwise try:
- Reset the iPod. Nothing will be lost
Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
- Reset all settings
Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
- Restore from backup
- Restore to factory settings/new iPod.
- Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • After updating to iOS 6 my iPod Touch 4th.Gen is virtually unusable ... does anyone know how to sue Apple since they gave no warning about iOS 6 being for iPad optimisation and a killer  for iPods ?

    After updating to iOS 6 my iPod Touch 4th.Gen is virtually unusable ... does anyone know how to sue Apple since they gave no warning about iOS 6 being for iPad optimisation and a killer for iPods ?  Before I throw away my iPod Touch does anyone know if Apple intends to rectify their obnoxious disregard for iPod users by issuing another 'upgrade' which will allow iPods to work without the constant system crashes that iOS 6 has caused ?

  • IPod Touch (4th gen) will not sync music after the latest iTunes update

    I'm using iTunes on a PC with Windows 7 and after the latest update (iTunes 11.2.2), it will not sync with my iPod touch 4 (also updated to the latest possible version - iOS 6.1.6).
    Before the update there was no problem with the sync. And this iPod has always been synced only with this computer, and this iTunes library.
    After the iTunes update, several songs on my iPod were greyed out and unplayable (the library plays fine in iTunes).
    Now, when I try to sync, iTunes goes through all the steps, saying it finished syncing, without any error message but there is no actual change on the iPod.
    I've tried deleting all the music on the iPod, to resync the entire music library anew.
    Again, iTunes went through all the steps, finished "syncing" and nothing - and, of course, all the music on my iPod is now missing.
    When I check the "On this iPod" option in iTunes, the entire song list shows up there but appears greyed out and unplayable.
    On the actual iPod device, there is absolutely nothing in the Music app - no songs, no playlists.
    The iPod always shows "no data" in the Music app.
    Sometimes iTunes shows that I have 18GB of music on the device, sometimes it shows 0GB ...at one point it showed "no space available". But it has plenty of space - 23.5 GB of available space out of 32GB.
    To fix this I've tried the following:
    - automatic sync, manual sync, manually adding/deleting songs on the iPod, autofilling and replacing songs;
    - resetting my iPod by holding the (on/off and home buttons) and resetting through the "reset all settings" option on my iPod;
    - reset and restore from backup;
    - uninstalled and re-installed iTunes on my PC.
    - I've run the diagnostics tool in iTunes - all tests passed;
    ...plus various other suggested solutions I have found in the similar topics around here.
    (I've checked and there are no restrictions to the songs, the computer is authorized, etc.)
    Absolutely nothing works and it is very frustrating, as I usually only use the iPod for the music.
    Please help.

  • IPod touch 4th gen will not sync newly added music, why?

    I uploaded all my CDs to iTunes and it will not sync to my iPod. What am I doing wrong or how can I fix this?

    What happens when you try to sync?
    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?
    iTunes: Syncing media content to iOS devices and iPod        
    Do you have any Restrictions (Settings>General>Restrictions) set that would prevent syncing those songs? (iTunes purchases only)

  • IPod touch 4th gen, will not sync music or movies but plays everything else. This has been since 2 updates ago. We have reset, restored and done everything told but no good has come of it. The identical 1 we have has no issues. It is now on 6.1.5.

    This 16gb model number is ME179BT/A if that makes any difference. It still plays apps and games with ease but will not download media from either the computer or iTunes store. We have restored and reset the thing but it will not work.
    This has been playing up since October. It started with it refusing to switch on/off or do anything so I rebooted it then restored it but it didn't download any media. We have tried several times since to fix the issue but it just won't work.
    If anyone has any ideas please let me know as the uncertainty of this device is killing me. What has happened to Apple??? We have all had Apple devices for over a decade but suddenly the whole thing has gone mad, constant updates and need to buy newer devices...... I think Samsung may be the better option the way rhis is going? We were always happy to pay the premium for the assurance of quality but that is no longer the case!
    Please let me know if there is anything to be done with this so called media player??
    Thank-you.

  • My Ipod touch (4th gen) will not sync, My Ipod touch (4th gen) will not sync

    I was trying to add more music to my ipod. That's when it would not sync to itunes on my computer. I have tried uninstalling Itunes and refreshing my ipod, none of that worked. Can anyone help me?

    Placing your device into recovery mode
    Follow these steps to place your iOS device into recovery mode. If your iOS device is already in recovery mode, you can proceed immediately to step 6.
    Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
    While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    Note: If you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has some charge, and then start with step 2 again.
    Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears you can release the Home button:
    If necessary, open iTunes. You should see the following "recovery mode" alert:
    Use iTunes to restore the device.
    If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, try these steps again. If you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen but the device does not appear in iTunes, see this article and its related links.
    I just clicked on the Recevery Mode link in my previous reply and cut and pasted the above.

  • Ipod Touch 4th Gen will not sync with Itunes 11.1

    I upgraded my Itunes to the latest version, now I can't get Ipod touches to sync that are 4th gen. Any help?

    I FINALLY got it to sync. I had to unplug and restart my computer 3x's then it worked and went like a charm. It was getting to step 2 of 5 in the sync then just freezing. I let it run for 15+ hours the first day.
    I do have to ask though since I have a knowledgable person:
    My son's Ipod touch broke so I bought a refurbished one. How can I change the ID on Itunes or his touch to reflect his Ipod?

  • My ipod touch 4th gen will not sync apps to ipod from itunes

    I've restored the ipod several times; reinstalled itunes a few times and restarted my computer a number of times.  Ipod will sync the first time after restore and not again.  I'm tired of restore the ipod every time I want to sync it to itunes.  Is there a better solution???

    I'm having the same problem with my girl's ipod 4th generation's. I have restored them 4 times now. It works fine after the restore but the very next time it will no longer sync and I have to do the restore again. It's becoming very frustrating.

  • My iPod Touch 4th gen will not sync

    When I try to sync my iPod, iTunes recognises it is connected and goes through all the sync stages 'successfully' with no error messages, but no music ends up being synced onto the device. I have tried restoring the iPod, and syncing automatically and manually without success, and I'm pretty sure my iTunes and iPod software are all up to date. Please help!

    Uncheck the SYNC MUSIC box and click the SYNC button on the lower right window to allow itunes to remove all music from your iPod.  Then recheck the SYNC MUSIC box and SYNC button to transfer all music back to the iPod.

    I am having the same problem (lost in back-up purgatory) on both my iPhone 4 and my iPad2.  I am running Windows XP.
    I have tried everything I've seen suggested on various support communities, with no success.
    I have gotten used to having to find a windows workaround everytime Apple updates iTunes, and this time it is especially frustrating.  
    I don't have any solutions, and I am responding to all of these types of messages in hopes of finding something that will work for me.
    One person was able to work through it by deleting all of the previous iTunes backup files.  I'm trying that now.  4 hours into it, and it does not seem to be working......

    Try:                           
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    I've gotten the iPod to sync after restoring it and not changing ANY of the music sync settings.  I didn't even click "sync music", I just have it on manual and clicked autofill. 
    After it synced all of the music successfully, I tried to sync a playlist (my recently added), and it's gone bonkers again, it won't sync the playlist's music, or any new music now.

    My ipod touch 4th gen. will not allow me to adjust volume with my speaker, but will with headphones. How do i fix this?

    - Try cleaning out/blowing out the headphone jack. Try inserting/removing the plug a dozen times or so. There is a little switch in the headphone jack that disconnects the speaker when the headphone jack is inserted.
    Try the following to rule out a software problem
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
