IPod touch 4th generation will not sync with iTunes, but shows up in Windows 7 64bit(Acer Aspire laptop)

Hello all, I am writing this message in the hope that somebody can help me to solve my issue with my iPod touch fourth generation. It has been unable to sync with iTunes, but shows up in windows as the iPod touch. I also had this problem with my older iPods as well (Ipod nano 4th Gen, iPod touch 2nd gen(Batteries done for that one)) I can sync music with iCloud, but I have a bunch of songs that are not in the store, and I sincerely want to add those, alot.
I've checked the "iPod appears in Windows but not in iTunes" with the link here: (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1363), and followed that process, but to no avail, it does not solve the problem. I've tried to reset the entire ipod by making it enter DFU mode and then rebooting the entire iPod (shows up in iTunes in temporary mode) but once restored, does not appear in iTunes, but still in Windows detected still as a iPod, looks like the iPod and everything. I also have the most uup-to-date iTunes installed (10.5 I believe, just got it today)
This is extremely frustrating because that is why I purchased the iPod (and for the games and apps, those are great too). The iPod was also purchased three days ago, and the setup still didn't detect it.  I am not mad at anybody here or the Apple company itself, but I have not found any help online with the browsing option (for support of course).
Please, I would absolutely love the help, i'd be eternally grateful for it.

Never mind, turns out that by uninstalling the programs "Megakey" and "Megaupload" it had resolved this issue.

  • My brand new iPod Touch 4th generation will not sync with iTunes on my Windows Vista computer!  Please help!

    I have tried every trick in the book and read every thread on why my version of Windows Vista will not allow me to get at the iTunes Store.  I cannot even get this new iPod Touch to sync with iTunes. 
    I've rebooted, soft restart, hard restart, removed iTunes and re-installed iTunes.  Nada...nothing!
    Does anyone else have the same issue and can they offer me a solution?

  • 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 and iPad will not sync with iTunes, Windows crashes

    I have done the latest upgrade on software for itunes, upgraded the software on both my ipod touch and ipad and now itunes will not sync.  As soon as it starts the syncing process I get a pop up window (I'm on Windows XP) that says that there's an error and itunes has to shut down.  I ran the diagnostics test and it says there's no error.  Not sure what to do now.

  • My ipod touch (4th generation) will not sync to my mac

    I have not had problems syncing my ipod to my mac before. I followed the troubleshooting guide to sync the ipod to the computer that was on the apple support website, but I still have the same problem.
    When I plug it in via USB it charges, but does not register in iTunes. Both my mac and my itunes have the latest software updates. I have tried restarting both my mac and my ipod and still nothing changes. Again, I have never had this problem before, so I'm not too sure what to do. Please let me know if you think you have an answer to my problem.

    So you tried everthing here:

    Have you tried another USB port?
    Another cable?
    Another computer?

  • Ipod touch 3rd generation does not sync with itunes 12

    I upgraded iTunes to iTunes 12 and now my 3rd generation 64GB iPod Touch does not sync but 8 songs, even though the entire library is checked.  I had removed all songs to reorganize the iPod but afterwards I was no longer able to re-sync the iPod Touch.  A restore from previous was pointless because all the songs had already been removed.  I ended up restoring the iPod Touch to factory settings and I still cannot sync any songs.

    Do the non-syncing songs play in iTunes on the computer?
    What exactly happens when you try to sync?
    Can you sync apps or photos to the iPod?

  • IPod Touch 4th Generation unable to sync with iTunes v.12

    To whom this may concern,
    I am struggling to sync an iPod 4G with IOS 6.1.6 with the latest version of iTunes 12  installed on my computer.
    Essentially the problem was initially was that the device was recognized and I was able to access the summary. It came up saying that it was overcapacity to sync anything new onto the device.  I have used the forums to find a solution to no avail. (I was unable to remove anything from the Ipod as the message did not change)
    I tried to restore the Ipod which has not worked, as the device is no longer recognised on Itunes and comes up on Windows 7 as 'Apple Ipod' as opposed to 'so and so's iPod''.
    I am wondering if manually resetting the Ipod from the Ipod itself would help so that it would be recognised on the Itunes (which I have reinstalled twice, thiking that was the problem).
    I use windows 7 and have Itunes 12. It has become incredibly annoying and would like this problem fixed.
