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?

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 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?

    Hey MOIMC,
    Sorry to hear your computer isn't recognizing your iPod Touch when you plug it in. I was able to find two articles that might help you out:

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

    Hi, jodie_0182.
    I would recommend the steps in the article below.  See the section labeled Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed > For Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 > Update the Apple Mobile Device Driver.

  • 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?

  • Brand new iPod Touch is not being recognized by my computer

    Hello,
    I just bought a brand new iPod Touch. I had iTunes installed since this is a replacement to a very old iPod. When I plugged my new iPod Touch to start the very first sync, iTunes crashed and started giving me a Windows 7 error (999). After many frustrated attempts to reinstall iTunes (and a few blue screens in between), I followed a recommendation in one of the postings to delete all the Apple programs in a certain order. It worked and I was able to reinstall iTunes. The problem now? My USB, which at one point kept asking for the software to install the iPod, won´t recognized it anymore. Period. I´ve rebooted several times and whenever I plug my iPod in any of the four USB ports, absoluletely nothing happens, as if nothing had ever been plugged in. I tested the USB with my blackberry and it recognized it. Please help!! Thanks!

    Ok, I just figured out so I´ll post it here in case someone has the same issue. I turned off my iPod while connected to the computer. Afterwards, the "other" connection showed up again in the device manager but this time it stayed there without disappearing and with the exclamation point on. I then proceed with one of the instructions in this posting to install the driver for the apple mobile which then showed up in the USB section of the hardware (it was never there until now). Bingo! I got my iPod Touch to connect for the first time! But seriously, why should it be so hard???? I'm concerned with the number of postings here. It looks as if Apple is selling the hottest toys but not be the best ones in terms of quality...

  • My ipod touch is not being recognized by my computer and gives no feedback when I connect it to my pc

    Hi... I really need some help from you guys. My ipod touch is not responding whenever I connect it to my PC. It gives no feedback. The battery image that is shown when I charge my ipod touch doesn't show up unlike if I charge it using the wall charger. I have used different kinds of ports and I ended up with similar things. No response! . However, I can still use my ipod and play music with it. The only problem is its syncing ability is gone. I have only used it for a year now and the warranty that came with it is expired. I hope I can get a good answer from you guys. ThanKs!!!

    I am afraid that the solution did not work... the ipod touch of mine seems really not functioning. It receives an electric isgnal from the computer but it doesnt sync at all... Whenever I put my ipod touch off and plug it to my computer it turns on but it doesnt sync... .. Moreover, I have used different PCs so as to try it syncing.. I have used mac book pro and windows 7 laptops but it gives similar feedback, which is NO FEEDBACK at all...

  • My new 4th gen. iPod touch is not being recognized by my PC

    When I plug in my new 4th gen iPod touch, the computer just says that it is a USB device that is not recognized, what can I do? My operating system is Windos Vista.

    Does the iPod work OK?
    Have you tied resetting the iPod? Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    Next would be to place the iPod in recovery mode and then restore via iTunes.  If iTunes does not see the iPod then the iPod is not usable. For recovery mode:
    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore
