My ipod 5th gen ios 7.0.6 crashed and keeps going from the apple logo, going to a black screen, back to the apple logo, then back to the black screen and so on. Furthermore, my laptop doesn't recognise that the iPod is connected. What do I do?

Please help me out as this is very irritating. This has been happening for the last 20-30 minutes. It had roughly half battery left.

Try:                                               
- iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
- Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

- 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 5th gen ios 8 issue

    i updated to ios 8 on my ipod 5th gen, and now whenever i try to download an app from the app store, it starts to download, then it randomly just stops... help!

    Any message or anything when it stops?
    Does it then go back to no update showing?
    What if you try again?

  • I get no sound from my guitar when using iRig with my iPod 5th gen (iOS 7)

    I've just bought my iRig and it doesn't work with my iPod 5. I get no sound out of my guitar.
    Headphones are working and when iRig is connected I can hear the samples and every other sound coming out of the iPod, but I get nothing from my guitar.
    I tried shutting the iPod down, turning Mono on/off, but it still doesn't work with any of my apps (Amplitube, Garage Band and AmpKit).
    Then I tried it with my brother's iPod 4 and it worked perfectly, which makes me think that there's something wrong with my iPod settings (I got the iOS 7)....
    Does anyone know something I could try?
    Thanks!

    iOS: Troubleshooting applications purchased from the App Store
    Contact the developer/go to their support site . Maybe it is not compatible with the 5G iPod. Also, it may not be compatible with iOS 7. Did it work on the 5G before iOS 7?

  • Songs in ipod 5th gen (iOS 7) in wrong genres.

    Songs in ipod (ios 7) appear in the wrong genres and also in multiple genres at the same time. I went to a genius bar today and the tech agent couln't resolve the issue. I have also restored my ipod and after itunes synced my songs over to the freshly restored ipod the problem returned.
    I have some songs that dont belong to an album at all, just mix songs from soundcloud and i tagged the "album" field "N/A". I have these songs with their correct genre tags and for some reason this group of songs will appear in several genres under th album N/A. They dont appear in every genre and i cant figure out why its chosing it randomly.
    Why options do i have for resolving this issue? Im baffled because everything is sorted fine in itunes on my macbook. Its just when the songs are in my ipod that it goes awry.
    Help please!

  • How to back up an iPod 5th Gen iOS 8 without pass code

    Hello,
    The screen of my son's iPod touch was broken and now no longer accepts swipe or touch input.  We would like to back it up so we can restore on to a new iPod.
    We connected to iTunes on the computer normally used to sync it, but iTunes wants us to unlock the iPod before doing anything.  This is so far impossible due to the broken screen.  Sometimes, we can get the number pad up, but we can't enter more than the first number because the screen is so broken.
    Is there any way at all for us to back up this iPod?  We don't have anything backed up to iCloud, so that's not an option.
    Thanks for any tips, or condolences as the case may be.
    Charles

    There are a number of third party apps that will transfer data from the iPod to your PC.  Perhaps one may work for you.  A number of them are written up on this page: http://ipod.about.com/od/ipodcopybackuptransfer/tp/Top-Programs-Transfer-Ipod-To -Computer.htm You can also do a Google search on iPod transfer.  Also look up iExplorer, DiskAid, iFunBox, Aiseesoft iPhone Transfer, etc.

  • My iPod 5th gen. doesn't have a back camera. Can I trade it in for one that does have a back camera? If I can, can I keep all my pictures and have them switched over to the other one?

    My iPod 5th gen. doesn't have a back camera. Can I trade it in for one that does have a back camera? If I can, can I keep all my pictures and have them switched over to the other one?

    If you purchased it from Apple within the last 14 days then you can return it for a full refund. otherwise no. If you purchased it elsewhere you have to check with them.

  • I tried updating my iPod 5th gen to iOS 8 but it only shows me a picture of the iTunes logo and a charger at the bottom, I'm not sure what this means or what I need to do. Can someone please help me?

    After restoring to factory settings/new iPod you will then have to restore from backup
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes       
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:                         
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

  • After I installed iOS 7.1, my iPhone 4s and iPod (5th Gen.) will no longer sync with my 2014 Toyota Tundra Truck.

    After I installed iOS 7.1, my iPhone 4s and iPod (5th Gen) stopped syncing with my 2014 Toyota Tundra Truck.  Has anybody experienced this problem?

    Turn your phone off and connect your cable to the computer, but not the device just yet. Start up iTunes. Now, hold down the home button on your phone and plug it in to the cable - don't let go of the button until iTunes tells you it's detected a phone in recovery mode. Now you can restore to factory settings.

  • Hi, my ipod 5th gen is stuck in recovery mode because i tried to get the ios 7 on it and now i just want it back to it regular ios i please need help

    hi my ipod 5th gen is stuck in recovery mode ive tried everything and nothing is working

    Only developers have access to the iOS 7 beta and then also have access to the developer forum. Thus, if you are a developer go the the developer's forum.
    Otherwise you have a bootleg coy of iOS 7 and are on your own.

    As with all clickwheel iPods, you can reset this iPod by first toggling the hold switch on and off and then simultaneously pressing the select (center) and menu buttons for approximately 5-10 seconds. This is a common fix should your iPod behave unexpectedly or lock up. Once reset, the iPod should display an Apple logo for a few seconds before showing the main menu. This procedure is similar to rebooting a computer and damages none of your music or data.

  • HT1386 I have an older iPod (5th gen, 30GB+video).  My computer crashed and itunes was no loner accessible on it.  On my new computer, how do I transfer the music from my iPod to the library in iTunes that is on my new computer?

    I have an older iPod (5th gen, 30GB+video) that I had connected to my computer with iTunes.  That computer crashed and the only place my music is stored is on my iPod.  How do I move that music to the iTunes program (version 8) on my new computer.  When I connect my iPod to my new computer the music shows up in my iPod's music directory but I can't move it to the library.

    - For other music you need a third-party program like one of those discussed here:
