I can't sync music onto my iPod touch after restoring

I have just restored and updated my iPod touch and now my music won't sync onto it. The music is still in my iTunes library and the "Sync music" box is ticked but the music will not sync onto my iPod.
My apps are no longer in my iTunes library to sync onto my iPod. My photos are still on the device and the wifi settings are still the same.
I have tried restoring and syncing my iPod touch again a few times and I get error message -54.
Please help me :-(

I can't find an iTunes error -54 anywhere, even from Google.
I would try:
Placing the iPod in Recovery Mode and then restoring. The iPod will be erased by recovery mode.
Place in DFU mode and then restore.

How do i get it back! i bought most of my music on itunes but i just dont have any idea where to go and whjat to do can any help me??
    Respond please!

    Depending upon what country that you are in (music can't be re-downloaded in all countries) then see if you can redownload your past music purchases (those that are still in the store) via the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes store home page on your computer's iTunes : re-downloading.
    If you are not in a country where music can currently be re-downloaded, then have you not got it on your computer and/or on a backup ? If not then you can try contacting iTunes support and see if they will grant you a re-download : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page

  • Can't sync music with new iPod Touch. Help!

    I recently received a new iPod Touch for Christmas. However, last night, my moniter on my computer stopped working. So, until I was able to purchase a new one, I simply hooked up and old moniter to my hard drive so I could use my computer.
    This moniter is very old, and considerably smaller than my other one, but I thought that it would work just fine. But today, I went to register my new ipod, and the registration screen on itunes was way too small. I could only see about three fourths of the page. I was unable to see and press certain buttons that I would need to in order to register my ipod and sync my music.
    So, I went on the iTunes website and went ahead and registered my ipod there. Now, when I plugged in my ipod again, it was still asking me to register it on itunes, but I can't because of my screen. and I can't scroll left or right, because there isn't even a scroll bar.
    My ipod is already registered, but now, does anyone know how I can skip the itunes registering process so I can just go ahead and get my music?
    Thanks!

    Yes, I did that. But my screen is too small, so when it comes to the Terms and Conditions page, the only options I can see are Cancel and Save.
    I already registered the iPod on the iTunes website. Can I go ahead and sync my music now? Or must I go through a registration process on the iTunes program in order to get my music?

  • I can't sync apps onto my ipod touch? Help??

    I use a Mac.
    So here's what will happen: I'll log into my account on Itunes, and then I'll connect my ipod touch (2nd generation) to it. I'll then click on Ipod (on the left hand window) and I'll select apps. I've purchased a couple of them, but whenever I click apply to sync, it won't.  I don't need to authorize it or anything, it just won't sync to my itouch. Help?

    Are the apps compatible with ipod touch?

  • My itunes wont let me sync music onto my ipod touch, even though i have a ton of music on my touch already

    My itunes is currently empty with no music in the library when i try and add music by dragging and dropping. (which used to work) i try and sync but it dont copy onto my touch. Any ideas?
    I have tried restoring the ipod and also re-downloading itunes.

    You can only drag and drop if you have iTunes configured to manually manage music. With the iPod connected to the compute go to the Summary pane for the iPod and check the box under Options that says sync only checked songs and videos.

  • Can't sync music library with iPod Touch

    I gave my iPod to my son. He erased my music library and put his on. He gave iPod back. I erased all his music and tried to reload my music library. I updated iTunes from Apple website. Could not successfully transfer ANY music.
    I searched through discussions and found some suggestions. I restored iPod to original settings, removed everything.
    Apps I originally had on the iPod and some new ones synced beautifully. Music library would not. Unclicked manually managed iTunes. Unclicked Sync all iTunes in library. Clicked APPLY where applicable. Uninstalled iTunes on PC and reinstalled. iTunes will not sync.
    I cannot put a checkmark on all songs in the library. The checkmarks will only go so far down and then quit. There are too many to do that manually.
    it has 59.42 GB capacity, 4.3.1 software version.
    So what do I do to syn my music library? And what are the exclamation marks appearing to the left of the column for check marks? Sometimes they appear and sometimes not.
    I would appreciate any help you can give me. I am at my wit's end. Thank you.

    For anyone who might read my post and have the same problem, the above link, second option to try work like a charm. I have my music back. I had to go looking for it and clicking on one of the pieces to play it in iTunes worked. Not all the music was located right away but it was still findable.

  • Can I transfer music from one Ipod touch to a newer generation Ipod touch?

    Can I transfer music from one IPod Touch to a newer generation IPod Touch?

    - No directly.  You have to first get the music in your itunes library on your computer and then sync the music to the new computer.
    - You can/should restore you new iPod from the backup of your old iPod to get app date and other things on the new iPod.  You will have to reenter passwords since passwords only get restore to the same device. The backup does not contain music so that has to be synced.
    - You can transfer iTunes purchased from an iPod to your computer by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    - The follow discussion discusses third-party programs to transfer non-iTunes purchases from an iPod to a computer.
