Ipod Touch not being recognised/unknown device

Ipod Touch not being recognised - help!?
It says it's a code 43 - Unknown device/device not recognised. Doesn't sound good.
Tried all of the things the itunes website suggested such as of course turning it off and on again, restarting services, reinstalling itunes. I know from experience that when you take it in to the shop they want to charge you almost as much as you bought it for to fix a minor problem. Thanks

Hi,
Reinstalling iTunes *will not* erase your music library.
As a matter of course I do, and in fact Apple recommend that you back up your music library, there is an option to do this under "File" in iTunes. It is really quite sensible to have your purchased and other music files saved elsewhere as well as on your main hard drive, it can save a lot of time and hassle.
Good luck,
Dud.

  • IPod Touch not being recognised on newly-installed OSX Leopard (10.5.4)

    I have an iPod Touch (software version 2.0.2) which is not being recognised in OSX Leopard (version 10.5.4) which I just loaded onto the Powerbook G4. It was recognised under OSX 10.4, although the iPod Touch didn't launch iTunes when it was connected. It was only recognised after iTunes was launched.
    I have read some previous posts about iPod Touch not being recognised. One of the recommendations is to reinstall the entire iTunes package. It this must be done to sort the problem, will all of the music in iTunes be lost?
    Note my daughter's iPod, when connected, launches iTunes and is recognised.
    Help, please.

  • IPod touch not being recognised by iTunes, recognised in "My Computer"

    Hello,
    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, I have iTunes 10.
    I have tried restoring the iPod touch, I have tried switching it on and off. I have tried with each USB port, my security settings are fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes, I have restarted the computer. I have reset the ipod.
    It has still not been recognised by iTunes.
    What can I do to get the iPod touch to be recognised by iTunes?
    vvv on "My Computer" at the bottom I can see this. Here I can access my DCIM folder, which contains some photos and videos.
    iPod information; Version: 5.1.1 (9B206) Model: MD057BT
    6GB 4th Generation
    Thanks,
    Aimee.

    So the Apple Mobile Device serviced is installed and running on your system? You tried to uninstall and re-install iTunes and all Apple related software? 
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7
    Simply responding yes doesn't do much to help.  We need as much detail as we can get in order to help you troubleshoot this issue. Otherwise, we are just pulling at straws.

  • New Ipod Touch not being recognised by itunes

    Hi, can someone please help!
    I purchased a new iPod touch (the one with the camera )the other day and yet so far iTunes nor my computer has recognized it.
    I have tried many things:
    Updating itunes
    Uninstalling and reinstalling itunes
    Unblocking itunes related software in my firewall
    Trying different USB ports
    Turning ipod off and on in different ways
    Restarting computer
    Using different usb cords
    Nothing has worked so far! My computer meets the requirements i think. Its a windows professional with a service pack 3 and it has usb 2.0 ports. I have a working itunes account and store and i have itunes version 10.1. My ipod has full charge also
    My computer makes the noise when something is plugged in, yet my ipod is not appearing under devices on itunes. My old nano is being picked up fine yet my new ipod touch isnt!
    I dont know whether i should return to the store i purchased it at or if it is a computer malfunction thats the probelm.
    Please please help! I've reached a dead end!

    Try it on another computer.

  • IPod Touch not being recognised in Windows XP or iTunes - HELP!!!!!

    Hi.
    I have just bought a 16gb iPod Touch which I am trying to use on Windows XP.
    When I connect the iPod to my PC it brings up the 'Found New Hardware Wizard' but does not open up iTunes.
    On the Hardware Wizard it trys to search for the driver but cannot locate it, whenever it tries to search it comes back saying "The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot locate the necessary software".
    I have uninstalled iTunes, Apple Software Updater and Apple Mobile Device Support, and then reinstalled these with iTunes V7.5, but can't get anything to work so that my iPod comes up in iTunes.
    If anyone can help it would be much appreciated!! Thanks.

    Hi, sounds like me and CJ2000 are having exactly the same problem!
    I've gone through all of the suggested fixes, and spent 78 minutes on the phone to Apple Care last night but still not working.
    But, I just tried it with my friends PC and it worked fine, so its definitely a PC issue. What I noticed was that when I plugged it into the other PC it brought up a bubble saying "found new hardware", but then straight away found the USB Driver without needing the "Found New Hardware Wizard". iTunes then opened up automatically.
    It seems that my PC seems to have problems locating the USB Driver for the Touch, any suggestions?
    Thanks very much.

  • IPod Touch not being recognised

    Bought a new iPod Touch on Friday and connected it instantly and without any problems to my MacBook. Later that evening, I attempted to connect it also to my iMac running Leopard and this did not work. I have since re-installed Tiger on my iMac but it still will not work via any given USB port (avoiding hubs). What is wrong? It can surely connect to more than one Mac, can't it? Any clues? I have tried all the usual options (and yes, it is listed in about this mac/hardware)

    Hey Éamonn,
    Make sure the iPod is directly connected to the back of the iMac with the cable that came with the iPod.
    Make sure the computers OS is updated to 10.4.10 or later.
    The next trouble shooting step is reinstalling the Apple Mobile Device Service.

  • Authorised ipod touch not being recognised

    Dear all,
    Hopefully someone can assist.
    I have recently tried to sync my ipod touch after not doing so for a couple of months.
    IN the meantime I also had a problem with my macpro which meant i had to restore some user/library files.
    When i connect the ipod to my machine with itunes running i get a can not sync. I get a:
    "This computer is no longer authorised to play purchased items that are on the ipod... Would you like to authorise this computer for items purchased from the itunes store."
    message.
    I click authorise and I get a message (after entering name and password) confirming that this computer is already authorised (as one of 2 already authorised computers).
    After that I just get the first message back again - a viscious circle.
    I assume that I have stuffed up a preference/library file somewhere.
    The ipod touch has not been connected to any other machine.
    Any thoughts?

  • HT1369 Ipod touch not being recognized by itunes (but is registering as an external drive by the computer itself) have updated and reinstalled itunes, stopped/started apple mobile device and removed and mobile programs associated with my non apple cellpho

    Ipod touch not being recognized by itunes (but is registering as an external drive by the computer itself) have updated and reinstalled itunes, stopped/started apple mobile device and removed any mobile programs associated with my non apple cellphone. This seems to have started happening after the last Itunes update I did as I was able to put music on my ipod touch a month or so ago. Is there some way to go back to an older version of itunes? I really have no idea what else to do since I followed every step on the trouble shooting page for windows 8.

    I had this problem too and my roommate solved it!
    Go to 'Settings'
    'Music'
    Scroll to the bottom and enter your password to log onto your home sharing
    Then connect to iTunes and sync!

    I have an unknown error (1621) and my iPod is not being recognised in iTunes or the Finder, even in Disc mode.  Anyone know what's going on?

    Try and force iPod into Recovery Mode:
    1. Turn off iPad
    2. Connect USB cable to computer; leave the other end alone
    3. Press and hold the Home button down and connect the docking end of cable to iPad
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect To iTune" screen
    5. Release the Home button
    6. Open iTune
    7. You should see "iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode"
    8. Use iTune to restore iPod
    Note: You need to be patient and repeat the above many times to recover your iPad

  • My IPOD is not being recognised by my Alpine CDE113BT Headunit

    My IPOD is not being recognised by my Alpine CDE 113BT Headunit. I have reset both my IPOD & Headunit & still not connection. I have tried one other Ipod & I Phone with no problems. An Error Message - 01 came on the display the last time it was connected. Any ideas.

    At present I have no power to the Gen 7, so need to get some power to it I think.  I pressed the buttons as you suggested, but nothing is showing up at this point.  Thank you for your response as the more I can rule out before  I take it back the better I think.

    my ipod is not beng recognised by my laptop as my ipod will not turn on and is charged and is also not being recgonised by any other devices such as docking stations. It will not reset for me and have tried numerous links online, please help???!!!!

    If the iPod isn't powering on and you are positive that you are using a working USB cable and plugging the iPod into a working USB port or wall adapter, it could be a sign of some hardware issue with the iPod such as a dead battery or damaged/faulty logic board.
