My iPod touch isn't being recognized by iTunes but my computer recognized it.

It recognized before but isn't working now. I tried all the troubleshooting and nothing is helping. What can I do?
My iPod is an iPod touch 5th gen and I have the latest version of iTunes on my computer. Help me please!

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 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?

    first try:

  • 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?
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    including here

    If you  have iTunes 11 turn on the Sidebar. Go to iTunes>View and click on Show Sidebar. You can also do a Crtl+S to show the sidebar. The sidebar is where Devices appears. and Control+B to show the Menu bar
    Next try another computer to help determine if you have an iPod/cable or computer problem
    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

  • I have a 3rd Gen Ipod Touch and it says connect to itunes but is not recognized by itunes. I have no other options. All that is on the display is the USB pic with an arrow pointing upward to the ITunes blue circle.

    I do not know the operating system and I have no backup on my PC.

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.  Since you have chosen not to maintain a backup, Recovery Mode will result in complete loss of data.  Anything obtained from the iTunes Store can be downloaded again but everything else will be gone forever.

  • 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 4 gen iPod Touch is charging, but it doesn't say so and isn't being detected by iTunes or my computer?

    So I've had the charging problem for a really long time now, and I haven't really minded it until now. The iPod still charges, but the battery icon doesn't light up or show the little lightning bolt anymore. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it, but now when I want to update it to IOS 6 I can't because neither my computer or iTunes detects it. It gets annoying because a lot of apps need at least IOS 5 to download. I am using Windows and iTunes 11.0.2.26.
    Thanks.

    Hey bcollins1,
    There are a few articles that go over some troubleshooting steps to resolve that issue. If you're seeing the device recognized in My Computer on your Windows machine, just not in iTunes, you'll want to follow this one:

    If your iPod touch isn't recognized in iTunes and also in My Computer, you'll want to check this one out:

  • 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?

    first try:
