  • My iPod touch isn't being recognized by iTunes but my computer recognized it.

    It recognized before but isn't working now. I tried all the troubleshooting and nothing is helping. What can I do?
    My iPod is an iPod touch 5th gen and I have the latest version of iTunes on my computer. Help me please!

  • My ipod touch isn't being recognized by iTunes or my computer. It's in "ipod recovery mode"?

    My ipod touch 5th generation is not being recognized by my computer under devices or in itunes; however, when I click on devices and printers it comes up under "unspecified" and is labeled as "Apple mobile device usb driver." I right clicked the icon and hit troubleshooter and it opened itunes and told me I should restore and update my ipod. I did this twice and nothing has changed, it is still not being recognized. This is a big problem because the only thing that will pop up on the screen of my ipod is the symbol for the usb plug with an arrow pointing to the itunes symbol (meaning plug into itunes I assume). I have tried restarting my ipod and restarting my computer and nothing is working. I have the most recent version of itunes. How do I fix this?

I'm not on IOS yet but would like to backup my phone first but can't do that atm due to not being able to view my phone on itunes!
    Thanks

    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.

  • My Ipod touch isn't being recognizd in iTunes or in my computer.

    I need help badly lol. Ok as in the title my ipod isn't being recognized by iTunes or windows. Also it doesnt come on unless plugged into my computer or some power source. But when it does come on all it shows is a USB cord with an arrow pointing to the words iTunes. I don't know what to do, I've searched for about 5-6 hours trying to fix this blasted thing and no solution works yet. I've done the reset, uninstall reinstall itunes, restart my computer, uninstall the drivers from device manager and reinstall them after a computer restart. Absolutely nothing works, is it time i chunk the thing in the garbage or what?

  • My iPod Touch is not being recognized by iTunes.

  • My ipod nano isn't being recognized by itunes. why not?

    when i try to connect my ipod nano to my laptop it wont connect. itunes says it cant recognize it all of a sudden. can someone help me fix this issue?

    After doing everthing recommended online unsuccessfully I tried this. Bear in mind this is with a 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS. 
    Here it is:
    1.Control Panel
    2.Programs
    3. Uninstall or Change Programs
    4. Uninstall iTunes
    5. Uninstall Apple application support, mobile device support, software update (I even removed Bonjour and Quicktime).
    6. Go to apple.com and download iTunes again from the beginning.
    7. See if it works (hope it does)
    You'll have to download Quicktime again, but no big deal. After I did this my laptop and iTunes finally recognize my nano and iPhone 3GS. In my control panel it appears that the other applications have also been restored (as you would expect). For those of you still stuck despite the recommendations online, I hope this helps you out.
    Good luck!
