My IPOD touch isn't being recognized by  iTunes and once it was restored it is only showing the iTunes Icon with the connector cable as a picture.

This happened after trying to "restore"

Try:                                               
- iOS: Not responding or does not turn on           
- Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
- 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.

  • My iPod touch isn't being recognized by my pc. The lock button on it won't work due to water damage, and a friend of mine fixed the problem by restoring it on his computer. How do I restore it without the lock button?

  • 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?

    Since installing the latest itunes to windows 8 my iphone and ipod touch is not being recognized in itunes, therefore i can't change playlists or add songs etc. Is this a fault with itunes as it was fine with the older version or is there something i can do. I'm not on IOS yet but would like to backup my phone first but can't do that atm due to not being able to view my phone on itunes!
    Thanks

  • 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?
