HT1386 ipod touch 2nd gen won't sync with Windows 8 laptop

Why won't my ipod touch 2nd gen sync with my Windows 8 laptop?  It worked last week, but not since latest Windows update on my laptop. Has anyone found a solution to this?

Have you:
iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
I would start with               
Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
New cable and different USB port?

  • Ipod Touch 3rd Gen won't sync with windows

    I've tried all the different troubleshooting through Apple but can't get my Ipod Touch 3rd Gen to show up on windows much less sync with Itunes.  I just went through the process of fixing my Iphone so I know that Itunes is properly installed and the other drivers should be good.  I even turned on Bonjour, which the one of the trouble shooting steps exposed.   Any tips other then buy a new Ipod touch?

  • My ipod touch (4th gen) won't sync with itunes, OSX

    My 8gb ipod touch (4th gen) won't sync with itunes. Running itunes 11.4 on OSX 10.6.8
    My touch was running fine until one day I found about 3gb occupied by 'other' space. I ended up restoring my ipod which took care of the problem, but created a new one in that the ipod will no longer sync anything from my itunes library. I have music set up to sync selected artists, and when I click the checkboxes to select my albums and artists to sync, the 'audio' bar fills up.
    When I click 'apply', the 'starting sync' and progress bar pop up for like half a second then disappear. Same goes with photos, apps, podcasts, etc.

    Verify that you have the right boxes checked to sync?

  • IPod touch 2nd g won't sync with iTunes

    My iPad 3 syncs with my MacBook 2007, Lion only, through iCloud but now my iPod touch 2nd g won't sync at all through iTunes. So does this mean it can no longer sync with my computer? The "sync iPod" under edit in iTunes 10 latest version is dimmed and won't sync.
    I suspect I have to give up the iCloud and live manually.
    Apple used to just work. Now I feel I'm swimming in the land of MS.

    Hi LittleBear,
    Can you describe your problem further? Are you getting any error messages in iTunes? Just appearing to sync as normal?

  • Ipod Touch 2nd Gen. Not Syncing With Itunes or Windows.

    I have an Ipod Touch - 2nd Generation 16GB iPod. It has IOS 4.2.1 installed on it.
    My Ipod Touch is still functioning but will not let me connect it with my computer so the ipod is not shown or iTunes or Windows. It was last working on the 19th of January using Itunes 10. I then updated to iTunes 11 and have only attempted to reconnect my ipod today (29/01/13) to no avail.
    I have attempted to connect my ipod touch with 3 different cables, none of which have worked despite all of these working when I attempted to charge the iPod using an external charger. The Ipod has worked as normally, allowing me to utilize all the available features. I have attempted to resolve this problem myself and have attempted the use of differ cables, as described above. I have also tried to restore the Ipod and have turned the device on and off, numerous times. Furthermore, I have also turned off the Apple Mobile Device and have turned it back on but it has not rectified the problem.
    Thank you for your help in advance.

    If you  have iTunes 11 turn on the Sidebar.  Go to iTunes>View and click on Show Sidebar. You can also do a Crtl+S to show the sidebar. The sidebar is where Devices appears.
    Next try:

  • Ipod touch (5th gen) won't sync with computer

    I had to close my itunes on my computer because it was not responding and now my ipod won't sync with my itunes anymore.  It charges normally, but my computer reads the ipod now as a camera instead of an ipod.

    Try:
    - Reboot the computer
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

  • Ipod touch 3rd gen won't sync with itunes..i know i have to replace the battery as it won't hold a charge.

    It turns on fine, appears to charge but will not hold a charge..It won't sync with my Mac Book Pro, iMac, PC or Netbook.  Do you think it is the battery?

    What happens when you try to sync? Error messages?
    An appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store might be useful.

  • Ipod Touch 2nd gen won't sync, show up, or charge

    The title says it all. An ipod touch of mine (8g 2nd gen touch) will not turn on, respond to any button commands, show up in itunes, and barely charge. My wall charger's light will light up (indicating it is charging), but it will not do anything. I'm pretty sure there have been many questions like this, but im lazy and can someone help me in this specific case?
    thannks.

    i have tried there, but its not that kind of problem. believe it or not i have a decent share of experience with ipods and am great at programming and other electronics. the screen is totally black. no connect to itunes, or battery low. black black. its really weird.

  • IPod Touch 2nd Gen won't sync Nike+ Running

    I just bought Nike + iPod Sensor because it says it is compatible with 2nd Generation iPod Touch, but when I try downloading the app it says it is not compatible with my iPod Touch. The 2nd generation iPod Touch won't let me download past 4.2.1 to the new 5.1 which the Nike + app says I need. Any suggestions?

  • IPod Touch 2nd gen no longer syncs with itunes?

    I just recently upgraded to Snow Leopard.
    Now my ipod touch won't sync to itunes. It syncs with iphoto, although I can't put new albums on it. It doesn't allow me to 'sync ipod' in the itunes menu. And it doesn't automatically sync like it used to. I can't even update my ipod to a newer version, because it won't sync.
    I also don't know if I can update to the newer 5.0 system, as this is an older ipod touch. (2nd generation)
    Please help. Do I have to reinstall itunes, etc. to get this to work??

    - A 2G iPod can only go to iOS 4.2.1
    - Try the following:
    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Device not recognized in iTunes for Mac OS X

  • IPod touch 2nd gen. won't work with old accessories

    I just had to buy a new 2nd generation iPod touch because the last one broke. I was mad to find out that my FM tuner and my ihome wasn't supported by the new iPod. Is there any way I won't have to buy all new accessories?

    Did you previously have a 2nd generation Touch? On this new Touch, did you install the 3.0 update?

  • My iPod Touch 2nd Gen won't sync music from my computer.

    I connect my iPod to iTunes and it says "The iPod cannot be synced. An unknown error has occured (13019)."
    Photos, apps, movies, and such can all be changed and synced, but audio files can't. I can put a song on the iPod and iTunes will that it's been added, display it amoung my other music, but when it doesn't actually appear on the iPod itself.
    All my software in update-to-date, I've tried using different cords to connect my iPod to the computer, and I've restarted the iPod several times.
    Is there something wrong with the iPod? How can I fix this?
