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.

  • 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.

  • HT202778 My iPod and iPad will not sync with iTunes

    Help! What has changed that all of a sudden, (within the past 3 days) I no longer can sync my iPod and iPad with iTunes on my Mac. What has changed? Everything is up-to-date on all of my machines/devices/software

    I had difficulties syncing my iPad Air last week that I have since resolved by changing back a few of my settings to what I had been using in the past. I have now synced my iPhone 5S multiple times (via USB cable) to the latest iTunes version on my Mac Pro with no issues.   In my situation, I don't know if the problems I had originally experienced in syncing the iPad Air was partly because I was making an initial attempt at syncing with a new Mac Pro and a copy of iTunes (whereby the iTunes sync options defaulted to Apple's original settings) or if it was because my previous settings were just overridden.  In either case, my issues were resolved as follows:
         1) on the MacPro, I left iTunes Match "on" and selected "Sync only checked songs and videos" within the iTunes Summary Options section.  For my music sync settings, I selected  "Sync Music" & "Entire music library", and
         2) for the iPad Air and iPhone 5S, I turned iTunes Match off as well as the Show All Music and Genius options (i.e., Settings, Music, "Show All Music", "Genius", and "iTunes Match" are all disabled [off]----I always adjust my playlist on the Mac Pro anyway, so I only care about the iTunes Match feature when updating iTunes on the Mac (as a backup measure in addition to the Time Capsule) and I prefer to access music that is directly stored on the iPad & iPhone rather than use the iCloud. Last week, when I initially did the sync with the iPad Air and had to reset, erase all content, and restore the device, Apple defaulted a few of these settings to on.  I did not experience any troubles with my iPhone 5S sync with the new Mac Pro as I was more careful to make certain that these settings were deactivated (because I did not run into further difficulties, I also did not have to reset, erase, & restore my iPhone as was the case with the iPad).  I can't say what combination of the "Show All Music", "Genius", and "iTunes Match" settings are a contributing factor to any sync issues, but I recalled having them all off on the iPads and iPhones when successfully syncing over the past several years.  So when it worked the first time a few days ago with the iPhone 5S sync, I didn't go looking for trouble to further isolate the cause (of my previous iPad Air difficulties last week) by setting the "Show All Music" and/or "Genius" options to on (i.e., I just made sure they were all off and was happy to see the iPhone 5S sync successfully).  There are multiple iTunes sync options, so I realize there are other settings that may work fine for many, but I have had relatively few issues in the past when syncing as described.
    I have continued to edit playlists/add songs and have synced successfully several times.  After having had quite a few sync issues with the iPad Air last week, I am going to be more careful to examine the iTunes sync options on both the Mac Pro and iPhone 5s & iPad Air (to make certain that they have not changed) when I update any IOS software on either device in the future.

  • 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 new iPad will not sync with itunes. itunes is updated to lastest version. Do I need to uninstall itunes and reinstall?

    My new iPad will not sync with itunes. itunes is updated to latest version. Do I need to uninstall itunes and reinstall?

    That could be a solution. Are you getting any error messages or error codes? Is the iPad recognized in iTunes? Does anything happen at all when you try to Sync? Can you provide more details?
    You can try a very simple first step, quit iTunes, reboot your PC and restart the iPad.

  • My new ipad will not sync with itunes.  the device does not show up in itunes

    my new ipad will not sync with itunes.  the device does not show up in itunes.  I am on a Windows system

    Do you have the absolute latest version of iTunes downloaded?  If your iTunes software has not been updated in some time, your iPad will not be recognized.  With iTunes open, click on Store at the top.  Check for available downloads and if there are any, download them.  Once you've verified you have the latest software, connect your device again, and it should be recognized.
