IPod touch (4g) will not connect to computer

When I connect my iPod touch to any computer I get a pop up bubble saying USB device not recognized. I have uninstalled my drivers and re-installed them. I have reset my iPod at least 7 times and I have also erased everything and reset it to factory settings. I have uninstalled the apple software from my windows computer and reinstalled it so now I have the latest version of the software downloaded. The iPod is running iOS version 6.1.3. When I try to charge it does not say that it is connected and charging. It is supposed to make a connected sound and show a lightning bolt letting me know it's charging but it doesn't. Ive had to make sure that the battery is completely dead before the ipod will start to charge (still not notifying me I just leave it there and come back about 4 hours later and see it's fully charged). I have done everything I can think of and what people have suggested on other threads and nothing is working. My warranty is expired and I do not want to take it to Apple and pay $99 to get it fixed. Can anyone please help me?!

Not Charge
- See:      
iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting
- Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.
- Try another charging source
- Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
- Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. The appointment is free.

  • My ipod touch 4g will not connect to my computer. Its not even in the device manager

    My ipod touch 4g will not connect to my computer. Not to charge or connect to itunes. My usb ports work fine with everything else. I went and bought a new wall charger that came with a synce cord and it works fine, as a wall charger with wont work with my computer. Ive done the whole rebooting, re downloading itunes, redownloading apple software, the whole 9 yards.
    What exactly happens when I plug my ipod touch 4g up if it turns on like it suppose to but instead of going to the home screeen with the little lighting bult in the battery is just acts like its not even plugged in. It just goes to connect to itunes screen.
    I sent it to apple and they told me that whatever was wrong with it wasnt under warrenty but didnt tell me what it was. Ugh! It doesnt have water damage, I checked the indicators. So what do I do now? I would rather not go and get it fixed and spend 100 dollars. I would rather try and figure it out myself. Help please!

    From what Apple said it appears you have a hardware problem. I would either pay to get it fixed or make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store and discus it with them.

  • IPod Touch 4gen will not connect to wifi no matter what

    My white 8gb iPod Touch 4gen will not connect to wifi, I have reset the network and the entire iPod. When I got it for Christmas 2011 it worked perfectly for a few months then all of a sudden it stopped connecting, every connection I try to connect it to says the same thing; unable to join network... I am getting fed up, my first gen iPod Touch will connect to the wifi no problem, but the thing is it keeps crashing. I can't use it for more than a couple of minutes and it goes back to the home screen. If anyone could help, it is greatly appreciated!

    Try the following to rule out a software problem:                 
    - 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.
    - Power off and then back on the router
    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings
    - Restore from backup. See:
    iOS: How to back up
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    If still problem make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

  • Ipod touch 5g will not connect to home wifi

    Hello there! I have this problem where my ipod touch wil not let me connect to my home wifi. When I try to join, a message will pop up saying "incorrect password". I know for sure that the password is 100% right. My ipod touch had no problems connecting to the internet a few months ago, but lately many of the apps that required internet would not load even with 3 bars of signal. Therefore, this is when I decided to rest the network settings. Biggest mistake. Now it won't even let me connect to the internet. I have tried everything. Holding the home button and power button together until apple logo pops up. Updating the software to ios 6.1.3, physically turning my ipod on and off, even the modem and reseting the network settings on ipod.
    Will restoring my ipod back to factory settings work?
    Thank you! It will be appreciated.

    Does the iPod connect to other networks?
    Does the iPod see the network?
    Any error messages?
    Do other devices now connect?
    Did the iPod connect before?

  • IPod touch 4g will not connect to lion

    Hi, I'm an iOS developer. I recently updated to 10.7.4, I was using Snow Leopard for development before updating. My problem is that when I plug my iPod touch to the Mac nothing happens at all. If i delete applemobiledevice.kext then the iPod will charge and image capture will open, but it will not show up under devices or iTunes. I've gone through the worthless trouble shooting steps. Even with applemobiledevice.kext I can see that the iPod is plugged in with system inforamation. Everything has the latest updates. I can use this iPod on windows machines as well as the windows I'm dual booting with on the same machine. It seems to me this problem is very much with OSX lion, not the iPod, the machine or the cable. Is there anything that can be done?

    I'd like to add that I still have this problem. Though if I create a virtual machine of OSX 10.7.0 under windows (running on the same machine, very redundant) that virtual machine has no problem using my iPod. This still does not solve my problem for obvious reasons, but again points to osx its self. Reinstalling osx, iTunes, ect. has no effect, there must be some file that isn't playing fair. Anyone have any insight? At this time I don't want to buy another Mac just to get around it seeing how common this problem is.

  • IPod Touch 5g Will Not Sync To Computer

    Basically, when I plug my iPod into the computer with iTunes open, iTunes tells me that something is going wrong with some sort of syncing download thing or something. (I'd love to get the error message, but that would mean doing this all over again for the fourth time...)
    After I click OK, it starts to sync, but never even finishes initializing step 2 of syncing. My iTunes is updated to the latest version (I believe - I updated it today) and my iPod is still at iOS 6. (Wanting to sync so I can update...)
    Any help would be great, thanks.

    Have you tried walking it into the nearest Apple Store and asking for assistance there...?
    I'm guessing you don't have Apple Care on it.

    What version of iTunes is on the computer? You need at least 11.4.

  • My ipod touch 4g will not turn on.

    My ipod touch 4g will not turn on. when I try to turn it on, I get the itunes logo and the usb cable with an arrow pointing up to the itunes lable. I dont know how to fix it. My computer is equipped with itunes and I tried using my computer to fix this problem but it didnt work.

    Restore.  Note that it could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.
