ITunes could not connect to this iPod because an unknown error occurred

iTunes could not connect to this iPod because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000001)
Just had a hard drive problem, no idea why, but the macbookpro hd just went boom and the volume directory was shot took it down to the apple store and they re-installed everything.
tried to connect my iTouch and I get the error iTunes could not connect to this iPod because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000001)...
plus the iTouch does not show up on any of our 5 macs and gives the same error, but never did before.

[Unknown error containing '0xE' when connecting|http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3221] has your error number listed. There are some fairly straightforward troubleshooting ideas.
Hope that solves your problem.

    itunes could not connect to this iphone because an unknown error occured (0xE8000003)
    tried uninstalling itunes and restarting reinstalling, didnt change problem.

    The article may not explicitly mention the error code but it does say +the error may be the same as above but end with a different number+. I've now found a forum on another site (http://forum.upsb.info/showthread.php?t=2813&page=2&s=f1904afbf5d4475d933fabcb9b 022f7e last post) that says :
    1, Go to the folder C:/Program Data/Apple/Lockdown (in Vista or 7)
    2, Delete SystemConfiguration (system file)
    As I havn't had the error I don't know whether the above fixes it - and if you try it I'd suggest taking a backup or renaming the file, not deleting it, in case it doesn't work and you want to restore the file.

  • ITunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occurred (0xE80007F)

    Recieved this error while syncing the IPod classic, however, the IPhone was not connected to the computer, was no where near the computer.
    In addition, I had earlier in the day the following error message as well: ITunes could not connect to the IPone "Merci's IPone" because an invalid response was received from the device."  In this situation, again the IPod classic was syncying music, and the phone was not even in the house.
    The day previously, I had the following error as well: ITunes could not connect to the IPone because of unknown error occurred (0XE80002D). 
    When I called Apple Support, the first person could not find a response or answer to fix or give a reason why this is happening, since he said the last error is normally resulting from when the cable has a connection problem; well the IPhone was never connected to the computer--the IPod Classic was during these incidents.  When a senior advisor came on line, he wanted me to reboot my computer, but I was still in the middle of the IPod Sync of music so that could not happen. Which his answer was, well then call back and talk with a apple support person when it completes--my thought was if the first person couldn't figure it out and required a senior advisor, what is going to happen when I call back--I repeat myself and wait and repeat myself again to another senior advisor and then do some archaic steps to discover they don't know what is wrong?  I am waiting on a few other problems they haven't figured out yet. I am a new Apple user and have had nothing but problems with Apple IPhone, IPad and guess IPod Classic all which I purchased with high recommendations that Apple is better than windows products and Android products.  I am wondering what the **** I got myself into?
    Can anyone help me? It is getting frustrating that Apple can not seem to help with any of the situations I seem to be having!
    Thanks in advance.

    I have had this same issue with my iPhone 4 since iOS 5 was released.  None of the updates has fixed it yet. I'm using Windows 7 Pro (64 bit), and iTunes 10.5.3   I am not encrypting my backups.  I do have my phone set to passcode lock after 1 hour.  When I have enabled WiFi sync in iTunes, I get the error message described in this thread at least once every day.  In the morning, when I first open iTunes, I will have to click this window sometimes 8 to 10 times to get it to finally dismiss and begin the sync process. 
    It's apparent that iTunes is hung up whenever this message is present.  It's not downloading podcasts during the night, or performing the WiFi sync while my phone is charging in the other room.  Nothing works until I sit in front of iTunes and click off the error message.  If I am required to do that in order to get the phone to update, I should just plug it in and disable the WiFi sync hassles until/if it ever gets fixed.

  • When I plug my iPod Touch into the computer in iTunes it says: iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000065)

    I have a refurbished iPod Touch and it has been working fine with my computer except for sometimes there's a little delay in iTunes picking it up when I plug it in to my computer and now when I tried to plug it in to my computer it has the message that I posted in the title.

  • "iTunes could not connect to this iPod. An unknown error occurred (0xE8000012)"

    For some reason iTunes isn't able to read my ipod anymore, installed the new version of itunes after not using it for a while and now iTunes won't read anything from it.
    Anyone else having this problem who could possible have a solution?

    Turn your iPhone to a DFU mode and restore it

  • How do I fix this error message:iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occured (0xE8000082)

    I keep getting this message and don't know what to do to fix it.  I've checked and I have both the latest operating system and iTunes.  I also have the latest O/S for the iPhone 4S,
    Has anyone else seen this message and figured out how to fix it?

    This could be caused by a USB connection issue. Make sure the iPhone is directly connected to the Mac using the USB cable it came with. Also, try disconnecting all other USB devices.
    If you haven't already try resetting the iPhone by holding the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons until you see an Apple logo as described here:http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305743

  • ITunes could not connect to the iPhone because an unknown error occurred (OxE8000001)

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but I don't have the nerves to read through thousands of "I've got the same problem too" replies. I do not care whether anyone has the same problem. So if you don't have any solution do not post! I'm not being rude, I'd just keep this discussion as accessible for other readers as possible. Besides, shouting "me too" doesn't really help anyone. Thank you.
    Here's my problem, I sync my iPhone via iTunes 10.5.2, which works fine but after a while it prompts with an error message "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone because an unknown error occurred (OxE8000001)". This error message will not disappear and I have to force shut-down iTunes. It works OK for a while after re-start but the error comes back after a while. It is a very annoying little problem because I was waiting for WIFI syncing for so long and now it doesn't work properly
    Any ideas how to remedy this?
