My brand new iPod Touch 4th generation will not sync with iTunes on my Windows Vista computer!  Please help!

I have tried every trick in the book and read every thread on why my version of Windows Vista will not allow me to get at the iTunes Store.  I cannot even get this new iPod Touch to sync with iTunes. 
I've rebooted, soft restart, hard restart, removed iTunes and re-installed iTunes.  Nada...nothing!
Does anyone else have the same issue and can they offer me a solution?

  • IPod touch 4th generation will not sync with iTunes, but shows up in Windows 7 64bit(Acer Aspire laptop)

    Hello all, I am writing this message in the hope that somebody can help me to solve my issue with my iPod touch fourth generation. It has been unable to sync with iTunes, but shows up in windows as the iPod touch. I also had this problem with my older iPods as well (Ipod nano 4th Gen, iPod touch 2nd gen(Batteries done for that one)) I can sync music with iCloud, but I have a bunch of songs that are not in the store, and I sincerely want to add those, alot.
    I've checked the "iPod appears in Windows but not in iTunes" with the link here: (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1363), and followed that process, but to no avail, it does not solve the problem. I've tried to reset the entire ipod by making it enter DFU mode and then rebooting the entire iPod (shows up in iTunes in temporary mode) but once restored, does not appear in iTunes, but still in Windows detected still as a iPod, looks like the iPod and everything. I also have the most uup-to-date iTunes installed (10.5 I believe, just got it today)
    This is extremely frustrating because that is why I purchased the iPod (and for the games and apps, those are great too). The iPod was also purchased three days ago, and the setup still didn't detect it.  I am not mad at anybody here or the Apple company itself, but I have not found any help online with the browsing option (for support of course).
    Please, I would absolutely love the help, i'd be eternally grateful for it.

    Never mind, turns out that by uninstalling the programs "Megakey" and "Megaupload" it had resolved this issue.

    Win7
    See:
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    I would start with
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7
    or
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    Run this to help if it identifies the cause

    Have you tried on another computer to help determine if you have a computer or iPod problem?
    If you want, you can then update your iPod to iOS 3.1.3, the last update for the 1G iPod:

  • 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:
    My son's Ipod touch broke so I bought a refurbished one. How can I change the ID on Itunes or his touch to reflect his Ipod?

  • My iPod Touch 4th Generation isn't syncing with iTunes?

    My iPod Touch 4th Generation refuses to sync with iTunes. Everytime I try to sync it says "Sync session failed to start". How do I fix this?

  • New ipod suffle 4th gen will not sync with cd import

    my new ipod suffle 4th gen will not sync with cd import,through itunes,other computer has no itunes

    I'm not sure how the "other computer" is relevant, but on the computer with iTunes, you probably need to update the iPod's settings for automatic syncing, or load the new songs from CD manually.
    In iTunes, if the sidebar (along left side of window) is hidden, from the menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar.  The shuffle appears in the sidebar, under DEVICES, when connected.  Select it there.  The shuffle's Summary screen is shown to the right.  There is a checkbox for Manually manage music there.  Is that setting currently checked or not checked? 
    If it is checked, your iPod is set to add and remove songs manually.  It does not use automatic syncing to update content.  This is how to manually add and remove songs from an iPod.
    To add songs manually...  Show a song list in iTunes.  For example, select Music under LIBRARY in the sidebar, to show your main music library list.  Drag a song from the song list to the iPod in the sidebar.  You can do this with more than one song selected, such as the songs from that "CD import."  Alternately, right-click on the selection and choose the command Add to Playlist -> [name of your iPod].
    To remove songs manually...  Click on the small triangle to the left of the iPod's name (in the sidebar) to drop down its content list, indented below the iPod.  Click on Music there.  The list of songs on the iPod is shown to the right.  Select the song you want to remove and press Delete on the keyboard.  You can do this with more than one song selected.
    NOTE:  If Manually manage music is currently not checked, your iPod is set to use automatic syncing.  Please post back for info on setting up or updating the iPod's automatic sync settings.  When automatic syncing is enabled, you make iTunes responsible for keeping your iPod "in sync" with your iTunes library.

  • I have a brand new Ipod touch and it will not sync.

    I have a brand new ipod touch and I cannot get it to synch with my itunes.  I have two other Ipod Nano's that will synch up just fine.  The computer has windows XP with the latest service pack on it.  It does not recognize it as a device in windows, but sees my other two ipods.  I have the latest itunes software on it.  I even uninstalled it and reinstalled per the apple web site.  I connected the ipod touch to another cpmputer and the usb port sees it as a device just fine.  What do I need to do to this thing to get this computer to see it?

  • Any apps restored to new iPod due to service will not sync with iTunes.

    I had to have a retail location replace my iPod and they restored my music and apps from the old one to the new one. Since then, when I plug my device into my computer the 'Apps' tab in iTunes will not allow me to manipulate the screens of my iPod. The image remains dim and I cannot switch to different screens or touch the apps. Any apps purchased since the restore are syncing with iTunes without a problem. There is the option to sync iTunes to my iPod but that will cause me to lose the apps not synced into iTunes. I hope this is specific enough! I don't want to lose my apps, please help!

    Never mind, turns out that by uninstalling the programs "Megakey" and "Megaupload" it had resolved this issue.

  • My iPod Touch and iPad will not sync with iTunes, Windows crashes

    I have done the latest upgrade on software for itunes, upgraded the software on both my ipod touch and ipad and now itunes will not sync.  As soon as it starts the syncing process I get a pop up window (I'm on Windows XP) that says that there's an error and itunes has to shut down.  I ran the diagnostics test and it says there's no error.  Not sure what to do now.

  • Brand new iPod touch 4th gen will not sit on dock of Sony Dream Machine

    model ICF -C1iPMK2
    I even wasted money on the three pack of inserts to ensure my touch was resting properly
    I have no idea why it won't rest down on the dock - it is like it's two different sizes of 30 pin connectors? is anyone else having this problem? I don't want to be too forceful with it for fear of breaking something irreplaceable

    Im having the same problems with the latest ipod touch not sitting into a bose portable sounddock.
    Sure, the portable sounddock has an aux port in the back which I can use once I find an audio cable with male ends on both sides.
    After reading this thread, I took an x-acto knife and tried to remove/thin the piece of silver plastic at the back of the ipod touch. didnt help much until I took the same knife and tried to thin the grey plastic innard of the sounddock connector. That worked.
    so basically, i removed a thin bit of grey plastic from the inside of the male connector on the sounddock.
    was worth a try.
    I've also emailed Bose support. They're generally very helpful with these things and the last time when I upgraded from an ipod mini to ipod touch, I called them and they sent me (for free) a set of new dock inserts for the ipod touch.
