My ipod touch 4th gen will not update to IOS5 i believe the problem is itunes10.5
ive been trying to update since friday my internet is perfect [speedtest.net] itunes just wont get past [backing up ipod[ i hope they fix this soon and i just wanted to see if anybody else was also having this problem because i want the new features coming with ios but its just not working and it took all night just to get roughly to about 20% completion of backing up ipod then when i got home it said "could not restore ipod its still on firmware 4.3.3 so i dont know why it said could not restore i did click "update" but anyway im having this problem and wondering if anyone else is {i think everybodys having problems itunes10.5 right now

I am having the same problem (lost in back-up purgatory) on both my iPhone 4 and my iPad2.  I am running Windows XP.
I have tried everything I've seen suggested on various support communities, with no success.
I have gotten used to having to find a windows workaround everytime Apple updates iTunes, and this time it is especially frustrating.  
I don't have any solutions, and I am responding to all of these types of messages in hopes of finding something that will work for me.
One person was able to work through it by deleting all of the previous iTunes backup files.  I'm trying that now.  4 hours into it, and it does not seem to be working......

    Try:                           
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • IPod Touch (4th gen) will not sync music after the latest iTunes update

    I'm using iTunes on a PC with Windows 7 and after the latest update (iTunes 11.2.2), it will not sync with my iPod touch 4 (also updated to the latest possible version - iOS 6.1.6).
    Before the update there was no problem with the sync. And this iPod has always been synced only with this computer, and this iTunes library.
    After the iTunes update, several songs on my iPod were greyed out and unplayable (the library plays fine in iTunes).
    Now, when I try to sync, iTunes goes through all the steps, saying it finished syncing, without any error message but there is no actual change on the iPod.
    I've tried deleting all the music on the iPod, to resync the entire music library anew.
    Again, iTunes went through all the steps, finished "syncing" and nothing - and, of course, all the music on my iPod is now missing.
    When I check the "On this iPod" option in iTunes, the entire song list shows up there but appears greyed out and unplayable.
    On the actual iPod device, there is absolutely nothing in the Music app - no songs, no playlists.
    The iPod always shows "no data" in the Music app.
    Sometimes iTunes shows that I have 18GB of music on the device, sometimes it shows 0GB ...at one point it showed "no space available". But it has plenty of space - 23.5 GB of available space out of 32GB.
    To fix this I've tried the following:
    - automatic sync, manual sync, manually adding/deleting songs on the iPod, autofilling and replacing songs;
    - resetting my iPod by holding the (on/off and home buttons) and resetting through the "reset all settings" option on my iPod;
    - reset and restore from backup;
    - uninstalled and re-installed iTunes on my PC.
    - I've run the diagnostics tool in iTunes - all tests passed;
    ...plus various other suggested solutions I have found in the similar topics around here.
    (I've checked and there are no restrictions to the songs, the computer is authorized, etc.)
    Absolutely nothing works and it is very frustrating, as I usually only use the iPod for the music.
    Please help.

  • IPod touch 4th gen, will not sync music or movies but plays everything else. This has been since 2 updates ago. We have reset, restored and done everything told but no good has come of it. The identical 1 we have has no issues. It is now on 6.1.5.

    This 16gb model number is ME179BT/A if that makes any difference. It still plays apps and games with ease but will not download media from either the computer or iTunes store. We have restored and reset the thing but it will not work.
    This has been playing up since October. It started with it refusing to switch on/off or do anything so I rebooted it then restored it but it didn't download any media. We have tried several times since to fix the issue but it just won't work.
    If anyone has any ideas please let me know as the uncertainty of this device is killing me. What has happened to Apple??? We have all had Apple devices for over a decade but suddenly the whole thing has gone mad, constant updates and need to buy newer devices...... I think Samsung may be the better option the way rhis is going? We were always happy to pay the premium for the assurance of quality but that is no longer the case!
    Please let me know if there is anything to be done with this so called media player??
    Thank-you.

  • IPod Touch 4th gen will not charge, or sync to iTunes

    Hello, I have a 2 year old iPod 4th gen 32 gb.  About a week ago a realized that when a charged it the charging screen did not appear.  I made no big deal about it since it still charged, but then I tried to connect it to my cpu to see if anything changed, nothing did (it also cannot connect to iTunes to my cpu but can connect to the app just fine).  So I went on with it but recently it stopped charging all together.  I'd power it down at night and turn it on in the morning and didn't charge at all past 20% So I powered it down and this image came up.Yes, I have seen this image before but when I plugged it in and got the  charging screen after it died.  But now it cannot get past this screen I left it plugged in all day and it doesn't do anything else.  I can reset it after 10 minutes to wake it up but it dies again almost right away now normally i would just toss this away, since how old it is but I'm getting an iPhone soon and I want to be able to transfer everything over, to the iPhone but it keeps dying before i can do anything.  And I would like to fix it so I could sell it for some cash.

    Not Charge

  • 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:

    Does the iOS device connect to other networks?

  • My ipod touch 4th gen will not sync apps to ipod from itunes

    I've restored the ipod several times; reinstalled itunes a few times and restarted my computer a number of times.  Ipod will sync the first time after restore and not again.  I'm tired of restore the ipod every time I want to sync it to itunes.  Is there a better solution???

    I'm having the same problem with my girl's ipod 4th generation's. I have restored them 4 times now. It works fine after the restore but the very next time it will no longer sync and I have to do the restore again. It's becoming very frustrating.

    I've gotten the iPod to sync after restoring it and not changing ANY of the music sync settings.  I didn't even click "sync music", I just have it on manual and clicked autofill. 
    After it synced all of the music successfully, I tried to sync a playlist (my recently added), and it's gone bonkers again, it won't sync the playlist's music, or any new music now.
