Windows vista, sync and restore errors. I give up.

I have had continuous problems with my 8gb ipod touch, 2nd gen. I just returned one which I had had for 4 months during which it worked, but then I could not get it to restore and now have a new one and have the same problem. When I first got the new one , it would not sync it had a number of errors such as;
- Attempting to copy to the disk 'X' ipod failed. An error occurred while writing to the device.
-The ipod 'X' iod cannot be synced an error occurred while writing to the device.
-Required disk cannot be found.
-Also something about Apple Mobile Device
So I uninstalled itunes and all related programs and then reinstalled them.
I managed to get a few songs on to the ipod but they were distorted and the album art became chequered.
I then tried to restore it and have had more errors such as:
-The 'ipod' ipod could not be restored, an unknown error occurred (6).
-The 'ipod' ipod could not be restored, an unknown error occurred (14).
I have done all the things specified such as:
-Restarting the computer,
-Reinstalling Itunes,
-Using differnt USB ports on the computer,
-Removing the firewall, Zone Alarm,
-Removing everything from itunes.
Is it due to an itunes update possibly around june, that I have started experiencing problems.
Will I be able to fix it?
Any help would be appreciated, otherwise I shall return it and not bother with an ipod again.
Many Thanks

I have exactly the same problem with my 8gb ipod touch 2nd gen and have tried everything you have with no success (see http://discussions.info.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2531624&tstart=0)
It's definitely due to the itunes 9.2 update in June. I get the same itunes restore and sync errors you have on Windows Vista and Windows 7. It only starts restoring and syncing properly on Windows XP. I've tried downgrading to an itunes version that worked for me on Vista before, but Apple have updated the ipod touch firmware so that its not supported anymore by the earlier versions of itunes.
Apple phone support is a waste of time. They want to charge me £25 before they are interested in helping as they say my ipod is out of warranty - but its not the ipod that's broken, its the poorly written ITUNES, so why shouldn't I get free support for itunes even though my IPOD, which is perfectly fine, is out of warranty?!
Truth is, now apple has your money, they don't care...

  • Im trying to upgrade iTunes to v 10.6 on a windows vista pc and keep getting the error, "Invalid Drive /E".  What do I do to get past this?

    I'm trying to upgrade to iTunes v 10.6 on a windows vista pc and keep getting the error, "Invalid Drive/E".  What do I do to get past this?

    Open a Windows Command prompt, e.g. Hit Start > Run, type in CMD and press OK.
    Type in SUBST E: C:\<enter>
    This will map E: to C: until the machine is restarted or you enter SUBST E: /D at the command prompt. Now you can try uninstalling or upgrading the software again.
    (If upgrading software which lets you choose a location, install the software in the default location, not on the E:\ drive.)

  • Windows Phone sync and transfer options

    This post explains the options available for synchronizing and transferring contacts, calendar and tasks from your Windows PC to a Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone.
    How Contacts, Calendar and Tasks are synchronized between a Windows PC and a Lumia family phone depends on which software is used on the PC
    If a S40, S60 or Symbian Nokia phone was used before contacts, calendar and tasks can be synchronized between this phone and your PC using Nokia Suite with the following:
    Microsoft Windows 7 contacts
    Microsoft Windows Vista calendar and contacts
    Microsoft Outlook 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010
    Microsoft Outlook Express
    Mozilla Thunderbird
    Nokia Suite (v3.6.x and later) allows for an easy transfer of contacts, calendar and photos to your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone via SkyDrive.
    Here's how this feature works;
    Connect your Nokia S40, S60 or Nokia Belle phone to your PC using the USB cable.
    After Nokia Suite is started and your phone shows as connected select Tools>Upload to SkyDrive and follow the on screen instructions. If you do not have one yet you will have to create a Microsoft account which has a SkyDrive attached to it. You can create such account here.
    You will now have to reset your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone. Doing so will erase all content from the phone and return it to it's 'out of the box' state. Make sure you have synced any media files to your PC (Zune for WP7.x devices / copy them through explorer on WP8.x devices) or Mac(Connector). You can sync these back after the reset. When finished reset your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone using Settings>about>reset your phone.
    Go through the Device First Use sequence and when asked enter your Microsoft Account used to save the content from Nokia Suite. When the setup has finished your will find your contacts, calendar and photos have all transferred to your Lumia. These will also be available through your Microsoft account through the web interface. The list of installed (paid) apps is also restored and the phone will start downloading these once the restore is complete. You can switch to WiFi for this if you have access.
    It is important to note this transfer will only work to the Nokia Lumia at the Device First Use sequence (after a reset). If you have your Lumia setup it will not look for or sync the information copied to SkyDrive through Nokia Suite.
    SMS message can not be transferred directly, but you can export all messages in Nokia Suite (Messaging>File/Export all text messages) and open the resulting Comma Separated File (.csv) in Excel or OpenOffice Calc to create an Excel sheet (.xls file) this can then be copied to your SkyDrive and opened from the Office app. You could also use a tool to create separate files from the exported .CSV file and copy all of these to SkyDrive.
    If a Microsoft Exchange server is used an Outlook account is created on the Lumia. This is done through 'Settings > email + accounts >add an account > Outlook'. The following settings are required. Usually these can be obtained from the system administrator for the Exchange server:
    Mail address
    User name (usually the same as the login name for the business PC)
    Password (usually the same as the password for the business PC)
    The Microsoft Exchange server Domain
    The address for the Microsoft Exchange server
    If Microsoft Outlook is used for private mail account(s) the Outlook Hotmail Connector needs to be installed to synchronize with the primary Microsoft Account and with the Lumia.
    The mail account needs to be set up as a separate mail account through:
    'Settings > email + accounts >add an account > other account'
    More information on setting up a mail account can be found here.
    A useful tool for setting up the Outlook Hotmail Connector can be found here.
    Additional Microsoft support pages for contacts and calendar.
    If Windows Mail, a part of Windows Essentials, is used contacts, calendar and tasks are synchronized directly with the Lumia as long as you log in to Windows Mail using the same primary Microsoft Account as the one which is used on the Lumia. Contacts and/or calendar can be imported in to Windows Mail as follows:
    Microsoft Windows 7 contacts, Microsoft Windows Vista contacts (and calendar)
    Open Windows live mail
    Go to contacts
    Click on import
    Import from current Windows user
    Mozilla Thunderbird
    Use the Hotmail extension for Thunderbird
    Export contacts and import into Windows Mail

  • I downloaded ios 5 after backing up my ipad on the computer. Now there are no apps or movies on my ipad. They are on the computer in itunes but sync and restore do not put them back on the ipad. ideas?

    I downloaded ios 5 after backing up my ipad on the computer. Now there are no apps or movies on my ipad. They are on the computer in itunes but sync and restore do not put them back on the ipad. ideas?

    iOS 7 devices need iTunes 11.1 or newer to sync.  Depending upon your computer and the OS it is running, you may not be able to upgrade to iTunes 11.1 based on the requirements for iTunes 11.1.  What computer and OS are you running your iTunes on?  From the iTunes download pages I see the requiorements are:
    Macintosh System Requirements
    Mac computer with an Intel Core processor
    OS X version 10.6.8 or later
    400MB of available disk space
    Broadband Internet connection to use the iTunes Store
    Windows System Requirements
    PC with a 1GHz Intel or AMD processor and 512MB of RAM
    Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, 32-bit editions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    64-bit editions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 require the iTunes 64-bit installer
    400MB of available disk space
    Broadband Internet connection to use the iTunes Store

  • ITunes no longer works on my Windows VISTA system.  Get error msg saying C runtime library incorrectly... Error 7, Windows error 1114..

    iTunes no longer works on my Windows VISTA system.  Get error msg saying an application is attempting to access C runtime library incorrectly... Error 7, Windows error 1114.  Same msg, or one that says unable to install, when trying to update or reinstall iTunes.  iTunes worked well up until about a month ago when this error msg starting appearing.

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.

    Hello everyone,
    I was having the same issue:

    If you receive this error also, press Quit and follow these steps:

    2. Control Panel
    3. Administrative tools (in classical view)
    4. Event Viewer
    5. Application
    You will see something like this:
    Double-Click for error (emphasized by red color). I have an error like this:
    "Error 1327.Invalid Drive: E:\" if you have the same or e.g. Drive F:\ ir whatever letter, you should solve this problem extremely easy - just insert USB-flash into computer (it will launch as E\ or whatever disk) and than run installation again. It will work than.
    Setup doesnt start if disk is offline.

    When it stopped and said error, what was the error? You are saying that you disconnected the phone from the computer and all you see is the USB showing on the phone? Then you need to reconnect to the computer and restore the phone.

  • Windows Vista Sync for a Tunsten T3

    Just got a new computer with Vista loaded and am trying, fruitlessly I might add, to download, install and use Palm Desktop version 6.2 to sync my Tungsten to my computer. I think I've tried almost every possible way to make it work to no avail. Is there anyone who may know the fix or can assure me that there is no solution. Yout help is greatly appreciated.

    Post relates to: Tungsten T3

    1) The location for the Bluetooth Update software for the Tungsten T3 to Support a HP Pavilion dv7 running Vista 64-bit OS.
    -im not sure what bluetooth update software you mean in your HP pavillion PC for the T3. if your PC has a builtin bluetooth on it,  you can see the brand/model and version in the device manager.
    if there maybe updates that should came from the manufacturer of the bluetooth device. so far there are 3 known drivers/stack for bluetooth that i know: widcomm, toshiba and generic/microsoft stacks.
    2) Instructions on updating the Bluetooth settings on the T3 that do NOT involve using the HotSync (since that clearly isn't possible).
    -there is no need to update the bluetooth settings of the T3 if you wish to do bluetooth hotsync as latest bluetooth versions available in the market are backwards compatible. so once the bluetooth stack is define, is just a matter of picking up the right settings for the PC and the T3 to communicate and do hotsync or send files and folders via the bluetooth radio.
    3) Explanation why Palm is no longer supporting the T3. The website lists the product as mature, not end of life, nor end of support. Just as a note, the T3 is still one of the best and most powerful units it has ever produced.
    -palm phones and handhelds has been classified into 4 categories or lifecyles. current, mature, legacy and historical. for mature units, these are units that are no longer sold as new at palm stores and its authorized dealers or retailers. palm are not totally abandoning support for these models although some services and options are no longer available.  you can still do repair and phone support with a fee and free chat support.
    4) Explanation why Palm/ACCESS is requiring Palm users to open up their PC's to clear access vulnerabilities via Bluetooth.
    -it was indicated in the release of palm desktop 6.2 that windows vista 64bit is not supported. however, there were some who was able to find a workaround and that's bluetooth and wifi sync.
    it's optional though as it's the users prerogative to try that workaround if they really wanted to sync their devices to the 64bit vista. so if some people find it too risky to try such workarounds then they simply look for another alternative such as other models or may shift to other manufacturers depending on what's feasible in their part.
    5) Explanation why on my previous laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000 running 64-bit Vista) everything worked fine via the USB HotSync.
    -in windows vista sync 64bit for mature devices like the T3, it may work in some cases but it is bound to fail since it's not supported as indicated in the release of palm desktop 6.2 which is the only version that will work for windows vista.

    It's telling you to connect to ITunes and restore your phone. This will have to be done with a USB cable and iphone connector that came with your charger.

  • How do I transfer game apps from one IPAD 2 to another without losing points or awards? I have backed up, sync and restored, nothing is working...I have to start over and lose the awards I paid for?

    My first IPAD 2 wireless failed, so a second IPAD 2 was sent to me. I have game apps that aren't transfering at the levels I have achieved. Is there a way I can keep the game app levels where I am? ie, Planet fish< solitaire, Sudoku, bejeweled 2, shazam-(has saved my content)...so why has some of these not saved my content? Or is there something other than back up, syncing and restoring that will save what I have accomplished so far?

    Assuming that the Library is intact, then simply drag the back up to your internal HD - put it on the desktop and open it, to make sure all is well:
    Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library' and point it at the Library on the desktop.
    If it is, trash the one in your Pictures Folder and put the restored one in its place.
