  • 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 isn't being recognised.

    I have an ipod nano and an ipod touch, both of which I sync on the same mac but for some reason my touch does not seem to be recognised at all when I try and connect it up. I took it into my local apple store but the assistant wasn't helpful at all (she dropped my touch in front of me!!) She connected it up to the instore computer and my touch was on it so she said that it must be a software failure on my mac. How can this be when my nano is still syncing?

  • My ipod touch has stopped being recognised by itunes following trying to download a book from audible.  It sees it as a camera

    Can anyone help me?  My ipod touch has stopped syncrinising with itunes following a download from audible.  It seems to be recognised as a camera.  The ipod sign dows not come up in the left hand side of itunes.

    I have now removed and re-installed every piece of Apple Software on my laptop. I assume this would result in the drivers being re-installed.
    However, when I plug the iPOD in a message comes up 'Installing Device Drivers'. Then a message comes up that they are installed successfully, but it does also say 'Searching folders for preconfigured drivers...'. After 10 mins I assumed this did not mean anything and closed the window.
    It is not convenient for me to check the other computer's drivers. Anyway, the iPOD used to work on this computer. The only thing I have done on this computer re device drivers is to start using a USB mouse (which installed drivers) and I also checked them all for updates. Only the Intel ones updated.
    Needless to say the iPOD is still unrecognised in iTunes.
    Any further help much appreciated.

  • 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?

  • My iPod Touch is not being recognised by iTunes or my computer, yet still charges. I have done EVERYTHING.

    When I plug my iPod in, my computer makes the 'ding' noise. However, neither the computer or iTunes actually recognises that there is anything there, yet it still charges.
    This iPod is BRAND NEW. I havn't even had the chance to ACTIVATE it yet. I installed the latest version of iTunes. I have tried THREE different USB cords, and EVERY USB available. I have restarted my computer. I have restarted the iPod. I have waited until it was charged. I have spend about HOURS going through Apple Support, and looking up alternative solutions from people having a similar problem. Most of their problems were fixed by wiping the iPod... mine isn't even activated yet.
    Solve this one, Apple. WITHOUT sending me a replacement.

    Is iTunes version 11 installed? Just do not say latest.
    Did you try everything here?

  • My ipod has frozen and isn't being recognised by itunes

    Recently, my iPod has been having troubles. It's been freezing in the middle of songs and when I try to change track, and, up till today, it's recovered. It's now been frozen for three hours. I restored the factory settings a couple of days ago, and it workeds, but only for a few hours.
    This morning, it froze in the middle of the song, and it's now not being recognised by iTunes. I've tried to do a hard reset, but it's not responding at all.
    It's an iPod Classic 30GB, and I think it's a 5th Generation. I got it second hand, and so I don't think I can take it and get it fixed and whatnot without paying money. Is it worth getting a new iPod? There is an Apple store near me, so I can take it in and see what they say, but as I said, it's second hand and it's past the warrenty.

    Charge the iPod for at least 2 hours
    Do the iPod Hard Reset -> Press Menu and Center Button simultaneously for at least 10 secs till the Apple logo comes ON.
    Then release the buttons
    Refer to this Apple Support article on the 5Rs.
    http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/classic/
    If you plan to get a new iPod, get the iPod Touch and avoid at all cost the iPod Classic, the new generation of HD in the iPod Classic appear to be not very sturdy and reliable, in my Opinion, yours is still more sturdy, (6 years old), but the battery and hardisk would be  in the last lap. The full charge battery should last at least 20 hours of continuos music.
    You can do the iPod Disk diagnostic to see the HD health, as posted by tt2.

    Don't worry about the Mac user, the DD process refer only to iPod Classic.
