How can I get my ipod to work with itunes?

When I connect my ipod classic into my new computer it seems that itunes does not recognize it. How can I get my ipod to work with itunes? I'm afraid to disconnect my ipod because the display is saying Do Not Disconnect.

1. Update iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes still can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
2. Click on your windows start menu. Type in "services". Click on it and when it pops up, on the bottom of it click on "standard". Now Scroll down to find "Apple Mobile Device" Right click it when you see it and click on "Start". When it has started, close iTunes and replug in your iPod and it should show up.
3. Check the USB cable
4 Verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is installed
5. Restart the Apple Mobile Device Service and verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed.
6. If you just want to add some photos, songs and movies from computer to your devices, you can use an iTunes alternative to do the job
7. Check for third-party software conflicts.

  • How can I get my iPod to work with its updater?

    Hey all, I have a 4G iPod, and it isn't recognized by iTunes. I connect it to its dock, and open the updater. The updater freezes and won't work UNLESS I leave it alone, after a few minutes the updater recognizes an iPod, but not any information about it (like the serial number or software version). Knowing this, I have sucessfully restored my iPod, only to find that the same problem is still there. The iPod shows up in "My Computer", but I can't get into it. Also of interest, whenever I connect the iPod, AutoPlay immediately starts, and asks me what I want windows to do every time I connect the device, but it doesn't show me a list of options...perhaps AutoPlay is messing the iPod-iTunes connection up? Can anyone help? Tried tons of thing on the site already.
    Thanks

    If you have Find My iPhone enabled, you can use Remote Wipe to erase the contents of your device. If you have been using iCloud to back up, you may be able to restore the most recent backup to reset the passcode after the device has been erased.
    Otherwise you need a working dock connector and computer wither iTuned and internet connection
    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: How to back up     
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        

  • Can't get my iPod to work with iTunes

    I have an iPod Touch 2 generation, and had to recently restore it, after it had done that I turned it on after it had been reset and it has the picture saying connect to iTunes, when I click to go onto it in iTunes it keeps saying Accessing iTunes store at the top, but does that for ages. Then I get the message after about 2 or 3 minutes saying Network session has times out. I've tried the obvious; rebooting, changing leads and ports and my network connection is fine. But still no luck
    Any tops would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks, Harry

    You did install the latest iTunes (10.5) right?  If the problem was that iTunes does not see the iPod try:
    iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    or
    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Device not recognized in iTunes for Mac OS X

  • HT201413 I have restored and updated my ipod from recovery mode however I still have the usb cord and itunes icon on the ipod when it is switched on. How can I get my ipod to work again?

    I have restored and updated my ipod from recovery mode, however I still have the usb cord and itunes icon on the ipod when it is switched on. How can I get my ipod to work again? I have updated and restored 5 times! When connected to itunes it only shows the summary page saying ipod in recovery mode.

    Fixed it!
    1. Made sure itunes software was up to date
    2. Pressed and held 'home' button and 'on-off' button at the same time for about 10 seconds till ipod reset (I hadn't done this step previously)
    3. Connected to itunes
    4. Pressed restore and update ipod
    Update successful and ipod taken out of recovery mode

    Will not work.  To my knowledge, dual converting like that isn't supported.  The Mac must detect the connected video output device and that sort of info cannot be done across an analog component uni-directional connection.

  • How can I get elements 11 to work with 16 bits photos?

    In the expert mode of Photoshop Elements 11, I can only work with 8 bits photos. How can I get Elements 11 to work with 16 bits photos?

    No, you can still buy photoshop cs6 (perpetual license) if one doesn't want to subscribe to the cloud version (photoshop cc version 14)
    Either way is expensive compared to photoshop elements.

    How can I get Phillips Fidelio to work with ios7. It worked with the previous operating system

    Not sure if this is the same problem others are having, but I used to play music on my Philips Fidelio by opening the Music app on my ipad and clicking on the box with the triangle (which has now disappeared in the new OS). However, if you have the philips dockstudio app, the box still appears there and I was able to get my speakers working again.

  • How do I make my iPod classic work with iTunes 9.1

              How do I make my iPod classic work with iTunes 9.1?

    You are correct in some of your assertions, Limnos but, if I were to follow Apple's wishes, I would have to purchase the latest and greatest Apple product every month!  I refuse to do that.  I understand that my G4 is old but, it does what I need it to do.  To answer your question though, I purchased the iPod classic as a refurbished unit, about 5 years ago and had it replaced three times, since then so, there is no way for me to know how old it is.
    From my knowledge of how the Classics work(which is extensive.)  It is basically a hard disk.  There should be of performing a low level format, plug it back in and the G4 should recognize the ROm and automatically search for the correct software associated with that version of iPod and load it but, Apple will most likely no longer carry the software on their servers anymore!(surprise,surprise.)

    how can i get my iphone to work without itunes

    You don't need a computer at all to activate and use a phone running iOS 5 or 6.
    Turn it on, go through the activation steps on screen, and you're up and running.
    Are you having some kind of problem you'd like help with, or is this just a hypothetical question?
