  • HT201263 i have gone through all the steps above and the connect to itunes symblo never went away, it finished downloading and im still logged out im not sure if i recovered it or not. Please help.

    i changed my ipod lock screen password and the locked my device (ipod touch 4th generation) and i tried to get back into my ipod to check a message and i had my password wrong i tried as many variations as i could think and it wouldnt accpet any of them. i contacted apple support and went through what i though was the recovery process to recover my ipod and set it back to factory mode and get back to everything and itunes said i was downloading something that i assumed was recovery mode. so now i turned my ipod back on and it still has the password on it and has not reset anything i do not know what i did wrong please help me.

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.
    iOS: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen                         
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.                        
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings        
    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
    If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.

  • HT201272 I cannot view a movie I rented on iTunes.  I have gone through all the troubleshooting and have reset my computer with no luck.  My account had been debited and when I go to the movie's site, the price for the rental had increased. Help please!

    I recently downloaded "Inequalirt For All," a movie by Robert Reich.  I loaded $20 onto my iTunes account and there was a special where I could rent the movie for $0.99.  I rented the movie but have not been able to download and play it.  The error message says that there was a problem with my download even though it charged my account.  I have gone through the troubleshooting steps and have reset my computer.  The rental does not show up on my iPad or iPhone either.  I would like to watch this movie!  Please help!  Thank you!

  • My iPad is not being recognized by iTunes...

    My iPad is not being recognized by iTunes.  I am trying to sync with my desktop so that I can reset everything since a train wreck associated with provider change has occured.  I've tried my iPod as well, and it isn't being recognized either. 
    Does anyone have any suggestions for this type of situation.  I thought it might be my power cord (so I reordered a new one), but the iPod uses a different one so don't think that is the issue now.
    Many thanks in advance for all who respond to this scream of frustration.

    Did it work with previous ii.x version?
    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

    Hi sambanyc,
    What version of Adobe Reader have you installed on your Mac?
    Please try installing on a different Admin user account and check if that makes a difference.

    Hello,
    My sons old iPad 1 is rarely used, but, when i charged it up the message was;  "iPad is disabled try again in 22,824,852 minutes"  sorry but thats a bit of a wait! 
    I have gone through all the various reset methods but can't get around the disabled status??
    Can't see another way to reset it.
    Could it be for the bin.
    Only wanted to give the youngest daughter the iPad to take to school.
    Hope someone can help
    Thanks
    Jonny Burns.

    Is this how you do it?
    1. Turn off iPad. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, slide to turn off.
    2. Connect USB cable to computer
    3. Press and hold the Home button down and connect the docking end of cable to iPad
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect To iTune" screen
    5. Release the Home button
    6. Open iTune (make sure you have the newest version of iTune)
    7. You should see "iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode"
    8. Use iTune to restore iPad
    Note: You need to be patient and repeat the above many times to recover your iPad

  • My ringer is no longer working for text and email notifications. Only working for phone calls. I have gone through all the settings to see where something is off. Not finding anything. I have tried changing the tone and it just vibrates on everything.

    My ringer is no longer working for text and email notifications. Only working for phone calls. I have gone through all the settings to see where something is off. Not finding anything. I have tried changing the tone and it just vibrates on everything.

    Ok so I happened to figure it out while on the phone to apple support. Even though the guy was very nice, I think I knew more than him! He was explaining very basic resolution principles I played about. I had the second option in displays resolution. All I did was unplug the HDMI cable, click on 'best for display' then plugged the HDMI in and my resolution on the normal monitor changed to the normal blue, then went black momentarily and then changed to a strange resolution but another window appeared that said SONY BRAVIA HDMI at the top! Hey presto! Don't know why it didn't do it yesterday - I probably left the HDMI cable in or something! Oh well. Problem solved!

  • My IPad is not being recognized by iTunes on my computers (IMac and MacBook Air)

    My IPad is not appearing in ITunes on my computers (IMac and MacBook Air). Troubleshooting didn't help. USB works fine. Cord works when I am charging. IPad is not showing on my computer and not charging from it.

  • My ipod touch is not being regonsied in itunes and i have literally tried everything! Help me!

    I have two ipods, an old classic mini ipod 1st generation and a ipod touch 2nd generation and neither of them are regonised in itunes. When they are plugged into the pc they charge and i have followed advice on the website, uninstalled and reinstalled itunes and made sure i have apple mobile device which i have, can someone help, coincidently this happened when i moved house! Help me please!

    I ran into trouble today, iPod Touch and Windows 7. Not sure why it no longer mounted or showed in iTunes.
    Looked in the control panel "Printers and Devices" and had yellow error
    Troubleshooting didn't help from there. Didn't help to go through Apple steps. But an update to MobileMe (coincidence?) along with Programs control panel and "Repair" reinstall of Bonjour, MobileMe, and also for good measure before I did that, I went into Services and made sure to restart iPod and Bonjour, as well as make sure it would retry starting the service twice after initial failure.
    Also, in iTunes I reset/cleared the Synch History in iTunes preference.
    Now works. Only had it just over a week. So very new disturbing event.

  • 30GB iPod Video not being recognized by iTunes and low battery warning

    This is without a USB connection to mu Vista machine
    1. I hear a clicking sound (it comes from the HD) on start up.
    2. A dark Apple icon appears
    3. Then the back light comes on with the sad face iPod icon and exclamation point.
    4. It then shuts down and screen goes off.
    Plug it into a USB port and same issue but the screen shows an un-backlit "Please Wait Very Low Battery" message.
    If I leave it plugged into the USB port it just cycles through the process.
    Note too that the iPod is not recognized by iTunes.
    I have done the reset process without success.
    I thiught I had a bad HD and/or battery so I replaced both. I get the same issues.
    Anyone have an idea?

    Well I tried putting the old hard drive back in and it was recognized in iTunes. All is well now.
    I think the issue is that once the battery is totally run down there is no way for the thing to get enough power from a USB port to bootstrap itself.
    I finally let thing recharge from a wall adapter all day.
    I suggest you try to get it charged via the car adapter overnight. Of course the car port must be supplying power with the key off.
    The Apple store people said they fix this type of issue by charging the ipod for 20 mimutes with a high power charger (I assume this is a 1394 type).
    All these issues coulkd be solved with a better design,

    I have tried different usb cables and ports and turning the lightning part of the usb cable over.  I have done a soft and hard reset on the phone. I have turned off and restarted my computer.
    I have OSX 10.6.8, iTunes 11.0.4, iOS 6.1.4 (6.1.3 on iPad)
    My phone charges when plugged in and iPhoto recognizes it and opens when plugged in. I am also seeing both in the Image Capture program.  I have been able to get the phone to appear in iTunes, but iTunes freezes up and does nothing.
    Also, same issue and problems as above with my iPad 3.
    This is the error message I get:
    [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v449/brtaus/iTunes_zps29ea986b.jpg[/IMG]
    I have installed and tried to use iTunes 11.0 and 10.7 but no luck.  I can get my phone to show up but then iTunes freezes up and I have to force quit.  I can get my ipad to show up but when I try to sync, iTunes freezes up and I have to force quit.
    I didn’t have an issue until I updated iTunes to version 11.0.4

  • Please help - my iphone is not being recognized by itunes or iphoto.

    I recently had to have my hard drive replaced (by Apple under warranty). Ever since then, iphoto and itunes do not recognize my iphone. I had the same problem at my work computer today (a G4 tower running a lower version of OS X than I have at hoime), but the issue was resolved after I 'reset' my iphone (held down power button and main button, replugged in, etc.) No such luck at home after trying the reset/restart/reopen iphoto/itunes several times over.
    -I checked Image Capture to see if iphoto was set to the default photo software viewer; it is.
    -I updated my itunes software tonight. Didn't help.
    What else can I try??
    Please help, if possible...
