My 4th generation ipod touch is not being recognized on my computer what do i do ?

iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Mac OS X
or
iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
- I would start with
Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
or               
Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
However, after your remove the Apple software components also remove the iCloud Control Panel via Windows Programs and Features app in the Window Control Panel. Then reinstall all the Apple software components
- New cable and different USB port
- Run this and see if the results help with determine the cause
iTunes for Windows: Device Sync Tests
- Try on another computer to help determine if computer or iPod problem

    - A reset.

  • My new 4th gen. iPod touch is not being recognized by my PC

    When I plug in my new 4th gen iPod touch, the computer just says that it is a USB device that is not recognized, what can I do? My operating system is Windos Vista.

    Does the iPod work OK?
    Have you tied resetting the iPod? Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    Next would be to place the iPod in recovery mode and then restore via iTunes.  If iTunes does not see the iPod then the iPod is not usable. For recovery mode:

  • My ipod touch is not being recognized by my computer and gives no feedback when I connect it to my pc

    Hi... I really need some help from you guys. My ipod touch is not responding whenever I connect it to my PC. It gives no feedback. The battery image that is shown when I charge my ipod touch doesn't show up unlike if I charge it using the wall charger. I have used different kinds of ports and I ended up with similar things. No response! . However, I can still use my ipod and play music with it. The only problem is its syncing ability is gone. I have only used it for a year now and the warranty that came with it is expired. I hope I can get a good answer from you guys. ThanKs!!!

    I am afraid that the solution did not work... the ipod touch of mine seems really not functioning. It receives an electric isgnal from the computer but it doesnt sync at all... Whenever I put my ipod touch off and plug it to my computer it turns on but it doesnt sync... .. Moreover, I have used different PCs so as to try it syncing.. I have used mac book pro and windows 7 laptops but it gives similar feedback, which is NO FEEDBACK at all...

  • Brand new iPod Touch is not being recognized by my computer

    Hello,
    I just bought a brand new iPod Touch. I had iTunes installed since this is a replacement to a very old iPod. When I plugged my new iPod Touch to start the very first sync, iTunes crashed and started giving me a Windows 7 error (999). After many frustrated attempts to reinstall iTunes (and a few blue screens in between), I followed a recommendation in one of the postings to delete all the Apple programs in a certain order. It worked and I was able to reinstall iTunes. The problem now? My USB, which at one point kept asking for the software to install the iPod, won´t recognized it anymore. Period. I´ve rebooted several times and whenever I plug my iPod in any of the four USB ports, absoluletely nothing happens, as if nothing had ever been plugged in. I tested the USB with my blackberry and it recognized it. Please help!! Thanks!

    Ok, I just figured out so I´ll post it here in case someone has the same issue. I turned off my iPod while connected to the computer. Afterwards, the "other" connection showed up again in the device manager but this time it stayed there without disappearing and with the exclamation point on. I then proceed with one of the instructions in this posting to install the driver for the apple mobile which then showed up in the USB section of the hardware (it was never there until now). Bingo! I got my iPod Touch to connect for the first time! But seriously, why should it be so hard???? I'm concerned with the number of postings here. It looks as if Apple is selling the hottest toys but not be the best ones in terms of quality...

    My 4th generation iPod touch is not allowing me turn both my WiFi ans Bluetooth on. I can't do anything that involves internet, not even downloading apps, which is decieving...

    Sounds like this problem:
    iOS: Wi-Fi or Bluetooth settings grayed out or dim
    One user reported that placing the iPod in the freezer fixed the problem.
    If not successful, an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is usually in order.

    Hi, jodie_0182.
    I would recommend the steps in the article below.  See the section labeled Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed > For Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 > Update the Apple Mobile Device Driver.

    If the above step does not resolve the issue, try all remaining steps in the article.

    Hey MOIMC,
    Sorry to hear your computer isn't recognizing your iPod Touch when you plug it in. I was able to find two articles that might help you out:
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538
    and
    iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB

  • HT1510 My iPod shuffle is not being recognized by my computer. I have the original USB cord but when I plug it into my computer there is no recognition. The first time I plugged it in it recognized but never again.

    My iPod shuffle is not being recognized by my computer. It is flashing orange and when plugged in with the original USB cable nothing happens to show the computer recognizes it.

    Flashing orange usually means it is being recognized by the computer.  The flashing means do not disconnected, because the shuffle's "disk" is mounted.
    In iTunes (with the shuffle connected), when you look in the sidebar (left side of window), under DEVICES, the iPod is not shown there?  Does it say DEVICES in the sidebar?

  • My 4th Generation iPod Touch Will Not Back-Up On iTunes

    My iPod Touch will not back up. I have the newest version of iTunes and my iPod Touch is running iOS 6 and sometimes it won't sync or even be recongnized as a device. iTunes says my last back up was on August 27th, and I've synced it multiple times since then. It is critical that I find a solution soon, because if the last backup was on the 27th, that means the software backed up is 5.1.1, and I'm selling my current iPod on eBay and it ships next week as I await the new iPod Touch and I need to restore from that backup! I cannot start as a new iPod Touch. Any solutions?

    Type " Apple Mobile Device service" into the search bar at the top of this screen next to "Support" and see if the resulting articles help.

  • My 4th Generation iPod touch is not responsive to being reset

    The screen isnt black, like its not off, but it is blank and non responsive. It will not show if its low battery, and my computer does not recognize it. Ive tried everything i can think of.

    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.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My 4th Generation iPod Touch is not recognized by my ZS-S4iP Boombox? Anyone had this problem?

    I received a ZS-S4iP Boombox as a gift. It would not recognize my iPod Touch 4th Generation, so I took it back  to the store for and exchange. But the new one is not recognizing it either. It will play two different Nano gererations. Any suggestions?

    Hi Regina,
    Welcome to Sony Community!
    Make sure that iPod Touch 4th generation is updated to the latest software version. Since, other two Nano generation iPods are working fine with the Boombox, there seems no issue with it. The issue may be with iPod Touch 4th generation.
    Thank you for your post.

  • 5th generation iPod nano is not being recognized

    I have 5th generation iPod. My computer (desktop) suddenly decided not to recognize my iPod as of yesterday.To experiment, I connected my iPod to my
    brother's computer (laptop) and it worked fine. Suspicious that it was my computer that went haywire, I connected my dad's iPhone to my computer and it
    recognized it.
    I got uninstalled my iTunes and all other programs and installed them again. Didn't work. Put my iPod into disk mode. Didn't work. Checked my computer for
    any virus. Didn't work. Even changed my USB cable. Didn't work.
    So what is the problem here? Is it my iPod or my computer?

    Not much else to try then is there other than blowing the whole system away and starting from scratch?
    What shows up under Device manager when you plug it in?
