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:
iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
next
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.
- 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?

  • 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.
