  • New ipod touch wont sync and a frozen screen what do i do have restored it but nothing

    I have a new ipod touch  just put it on the computer for the first time and it wont sync and has a frozen screen.
    i have restored it and that did not work.

    Unplug your iPod from your computer and hold down the home and power buttons until the screen turns off. Then hold them again until the Apple logo shows. Eventually, your iPod should work again.

  • Song and tv show purchased on ipod touch wont sync to mac itunes

    The ipod touch generated a -50 and -3203 error in itunes during the sync process and now all purchases wouldn't play without a restore and items purchased and downloaded directly to the ipod touch are gone after a restore. The ipod touch can't be mounted as a disk so if the first time after a purchase or multiple purchases (like in my case) are made on the ipod and you get a sync error your purchases are gone for good with no way to make a backup! (Note; Apple iTunes doesn't allow a second downloads--Policy!) This will definitely be the last time I purchase any items from the itunes store directly on an ipod or my apple TV, and I will make it a policy of my own to make a backup copy after any future purchases. I had been hesitant for years to buy any songs from the itunes store now my fear has been realized I have bought a song I no longer have access to. Ironically it is Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" --That is just too good! I am gonna go buy the cd at walmart this weekend instead of an itunes card.

    If you contact Apple and ask nicely (i.e. don't rant at them) explain the problem, you will find that they will most likely let you download the items again.
    In my experience they have allowed people to download when there have been issues (like me for example, never been refused yet).
    Use the form below :
    http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact.html?form=download&topic=Downloading %20iTunes%20Store%20Purchases&subtopic=Download%20errors
    Or log in to your account in iTunes, view your Purchase History and use the Report a Problem link.

  • IPod won't sync and freezes iTunes

    I am no novice user. I have an iPod Classic 120 GB. I had my iPod in disc mode and updated 1 song and shutdown the computer without ejecting the iPod first. Now all the songs disappeared. I tried to reconnect the iPod but everytime I plug it in iTunes freezes. It will sync a few hundred songs and then just stick on one for hours. I have 41 on there right now.
    I've tried reformatting in Windows, but it fails. I tried doing Quick Format and that works. Every time I open iTunes it says you need to restore your iPod. So I restore it and it says everything is fine. It tries to sync the iPod and freezes again. I've uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes. I've checked "sync only checked songs" and selected about 150 to do. I've reset the iPod multiple times (by holding center button and Menu). Nothing works.
    I've searched the Internet for the passed 2 days looking over every topic I can find. I need help.

    Here's a little update. I had tried a quick format again. iTunes restored the iPod and I had the options to manually manage music. I dragged about 100 songs at a time to the iPod and it sent them. I ejected the iPod after the first couple hundred and they were there. I plugged it back into iTunes and did about 300 more. I had a total of 500 songs. I finished syncing and didn't freeze. I ejected the iPod no problem. After it said OK to disconnect I look through the songs and it says 0 songs. Now it's freezing up iTunes again. >:(

  • HT1386 My Ipod and Ipod touch both sync and update latest CD music added to Itunes, however when I connect my Iphone it wont sync my most recent CD addition to iTunes?

    My Ipod and Ipod touch both sync and update latest CD music added to Itunes, however when I connect my Iphone it wont sync my most recent CD addition to iTunes?

    I have my iTunes settings to prevent my iPod from synching automatically.
    Open iTunes (without the iPod Touch connected) , go to "iTunes"--->"Preferences"--->"Devices", select the box that says "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from synching automatically", select "OK".
    I would then close iTunes and then reopen it.  Verify that the settings you just changed are intact.
    Log into the iTunes store and update any Apps that you may have purchased. 
    Connect the iPod Touch via USB with iTunes open.  You will see the icon on the left side under "Devices" as normal, however it will not automatically sync.
    Click on the "Device" in iTunes and from there you can manually adjust all the items you want to sync and then select sync when you are ready.
    I sync mine this way because I feel it gives me more control over the syncing process.  Also, I always log into the iTunes store first, check for updates to my Apps and then connect the iPod to manually sync.
    So, to me, I guess that perhaps is a way to "force" the sync but in a controlled manner.
    I hope that helps.

  • I upgraded from a pc to a mac and now my ipod touch wont sync to my mac

    so i recently upgraded from my old pc to a new mac book pro. i managed to move all my purchases from my old pc to my mac but now my ipod touch wont sync with my mac. it keeps saying that i need a newer version of itunes even though im fully up to date. please help!

    Hello Casey B,
    And welcome to Apple Discussions!
    Try re-installing the latest version from this page on top of the current installed version and see if that helps.
    If nothing else, remove the Application from your Mac entirely, and again download the latest version from the link above.

  • Latest i-pod touch wont sync, computer freezes and comes up with error -21 when i pull it out

    Latest i-pod touch wont sync, computer freezes and comes up with error -21 when i pull it out of the usb port

    Error 20, 21, 34, 37: These errors typically occur when security software interferes with the restore and update process. If you are using a PC, follow this article to resolve this issue.
    Above from:
    Next I would try placing the iPod in recovery mode and then try restoring the iPod. Note that this will erase the iPod. For recovery mode see:

  • Ipod Touch Wont Sync to Itunes

    Hey, so my ipod touch hasnt worked right with itunes for a while now, ive done a lot of things trying to get it to work but heres the issue. When i plug in my itouch, itunes doesnt do anything. Ive made sure the sync automatically setting is on, but that changes nothing. It doesnt even recognize my itouch, when i look to the sidebar on itunes it doesnt say "*insert name* ipod. So naturally the first thing i tried doing was using the itunes troubleshooter, but the instance i press the next button to start the process, it freezes itunes, which stops responding and closes. So next i tried to reinstall itunes. This actually does solve my issue, as when i put the ipod in immediately after it does sync, however the very next day it will not work again. I dont feel like reinstalling itunes every night to sync it. So now ive been looking on the internet for solutions, ive done many things that havent helped at all, i did all the things that the apple website says to do, and it didnt work still. Right now i really dont know who else to ask.

    I had a similar problem to this and found out my mobile device service had not started properly. I found the following apple link http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1567 for restarting the service useful and my problem now seems to have disappeared.

  • 8g Second Gen, iPod Touch wont show up on iTunes?

    I use a Mac OSX, Snow Leopard.
    I've tried several different chargers with my iPod, but it wont show up on iTunes. iPhoto will come up and say it's synced, and the iPod itself will show that it is charging. But it wont show up on iTunes so I can listen to my music or add songs. This is random, and has never happened before.
