My Ipod 4th gen. will not update. Download will not complete. Help!

In the past i have had no problems updating my ipod touch 4th gen but recently i cannot update it. I will click update and the loading bar will load all the way, then it will say that it is processing the file. It will say this for a minute or 2 and then give me an error code: 3259 telling me to check my network connection (which works perfect) or try again later. I have tryed reseting my ipod, i cannot restore my ipod because it wants to update it and then restore it. I have not been able to update for over a month and i have missed 2 updates due to this problem. What do i do?

How much it costs depends on who you have replace the battery whether that be Apple or a 3rd party repair company.  Here are Apple's prices.

It would likely be much cheaper to have a 3rd party company do it instead.  One company I have heard a lot of good things about is iResq.  For others, do a simple Google search for "iPod battery repair" and you should get a plethora of results.

I don't believe Radio Shack does offer that service.  Sorry.

I am currently in Afghan and i brought the iPod to use out here i had it 2 weeks and it hasn't worked since and I can not call Apple. PLEASE HELP!!!

  • My ipod 4th gen wont let me download any apps on my ipod.. what do i do?

    my ipod wont let me download any apps what do i do??

    If  you  have iOS 4.2.1 or later on the iPod and there was version compatible with that version, then you should be able to get a compatible version by:
    App Store: Downloading Older Versions of Apps on iOS - Apple Club           
    App Store: Install the latest compatible version of an app
    You first have to download the non-compatible version on your computer. Then when you try to purchase the version on your iPod you will be offered a compatible version if one exists.
    For iTunes installation probolem problem maybe:

  • IPod 4th gen won't update!

    okay so I've read a few discussions from people who have the same problem as me! its so annoying now, I've been trying to update my iPod to the new iOS 5 update but it refuses to update!
    It finishes downloading the update then says an error has occured, the timed out one, it then tells me to check my network connectivity, I do so and it works perfectly.
    I then turned ALL my secruity settings off and tried again. Still no luck.
    help me??????

    - Disabling the computer's security software during the dowload and update usually works.
    - You can also try a direct download and install using these instructions.

  • Push notifications and iMessage won't work on iPod 4th gen refurbished after updating to last ear iOS

    My iPod has been working well for a while other than the battery draining very quickly. But just today I updated to iOS 6.1.3 and all of a sudden iMessage won't deliver the messages and my push notifications aren't showing up! I don't know what is making this happen, but this along with the battery issue is driving me crazy!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Try turning off the following to conserve battery:

  • IPod 4th Gen: USB yes - FireWire no. Who can help??

    Got an iPod 4G for my wife to have it connected to her vintage PowerBook G3 "Pismo" (no USB 2.0 - as required by Apple - but at least two FireWire ports).
    Problem: iTunes does not recognize the iPod when connected via FireWire. iPod is being charged (from the computer), but does not show up in either iTunes or the Finder.
    Tried three different setups: MacPro (10.6.2, iTunes 9.0.2), MacBook Pro (10.6.2, iTunes 9.0.2), PowerBook G3 (10.4.11, iTunes 8.x.x). No luck. USB works fine on all machines (too slow on the PowerBook, though, that's why I wanted the sync via FireWire).
    Reset the iPod. Installed iPod Software 3.11. Performed iPod self-diagnostic test for FireWire. Result "NOCONECT".
    Anyone having any idea what elso to try?
    Thank you so much!!
    P.S. Put iPod into disk mode manually - doesn't show up in Finder...

    Try a different cable?
    If you are near an Apple store, make an appt at the Genius bar and they can have a look and at least verify the iPod works correctly.

  • Updated Ipod 4th Gen to IOS 6 but now Itunes tells me to restore Ipod and that data could be lost should i restore, it will not let me do anything until i restore

    I have an Ipod 4th Generation just now updated to IOS 6 thru Itunes, says update complete but now it tells me to restore the Ipod and data would be lost. I can not do anything till I restore Ipod and I am worried about losing games, music and other apps. Do I restore Ipod and will I lose games and music?

    Do you have a current backup of the content of your iPod? If not restoring will remove Apps and their data. The Apps can be replaced at no charge but the data will be lost.
    What is the exact message that you are seeing?

  • My iPod 4th-gen charges just fine in any wall outlet, but when connected to my brand new ASUS Windows-8 laptop's USB 3.0 port the charging process just keeps "blinking" on both the iPod and the laptop and will not connect to Itunes...

    Hi, I HATE to ask for help with this, but I HAVE looked everywhere and Google searched different wordings and have not found anything similar nor a solution to my problem!                                                                                                                                                                                                                               My good old iPod 4th-gen charges just fine in any wall outlet, in any house, but when I connect it to my brand new ASUS laptop that has Windows-8 and 3.0 USB ports using the charging/data cable, the charging process just keeps "blinking" BOTH the iPod and the laptop and it will not connect to ITunes and I get "A Device is Detected" message that keeps popping up and going away over and over right above the Windows desktop toolbar.                                                               When I go to control panel and select "Devices" it does show the iPod, but for only a split second and than it disappears, but than it comes back again for a split second and than it disappears again and just keeps doing that over and over and over!                                                                                                                  I have tried resetting the iPod while it is plugged into the laptop by holding the power and menu buttons, that did no good.                                                             I also tried uninstalling iTunes and any other Apple stuff listed and reinstalling it all, that did NOT work!                                                                                          The iPod, the laptop and iTunes ARE all fully updated!                                                                                                                                                                I AM using a brand new charging/data cable that I just opened up an hour ago (I've learned to keep a few brand new ones around at all times since these piece of garbage rip-off cables hardly last a week, even when you baby them!). I also tried a few old cables, they all do the same thing!                                                       I would like to get this piece of junk to connect to my new laptop, even if only once, so that I can change/delete some songs and transfer a few dozen photos,since I haven't been able to do any of that stuff since my old laptop (that NEVER had any problems connecting) died way back in May! lol.                                                                                                                                                                                                 I hope somebody knows a fix or solution! Thank You!

  • Will the iPod 4th gen receive any further updates since it cannot have IOS 7.

    Will the iPod 4th gen receive any further updates since it cannot have IOS 7.
    Just to keep the existing software updated and running correctly without crashing.
    My concern now is that as new games/apps come out i am going to get a lot more NOT SUPPORTED messages popping up.
    Frankly I don't think it's fair as I spent a lot  of money on my 32gb iPod and apple are now conning existing customers to line their pockets !!!!

    I would not expect any more update for an iOS compatible with the 4G iPod.

    If you go to Settings do you see an entry for the Nike app? There is no way to delete or hide that app?
    Have you tired using the Spotlight search? Maybe you just can't find it.
    Next would be to restore a gain. First from backup then next to factory settings/new iPod.
    The Nike app you can download/install
    Nike+ Running for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store
    Does work on the iPOd. You just do not get all the information that GPS/cellular connection can get. You will still be able to get distance/footstrikes like the installed app an you do not need the shoe sensor.. It uses the built-in sensors on the iPod
