One way to show your ipod touch in my computer is next: connect to internet through safari, save a random image from any web site to your ipod touch by holding your finger on the preferred image until a save image option appears,save the image. now connect your ipod and woila!

There's a program called TouchCopy http://www.wideanglesoftware.com/touchcopy/ that you can use to access your iPod Touch as a drive.

If you have a mac, then the iPod Touch does appear as a drive, I learned this when I took mine to the Apple store for some problems I was having and they told me it works on macs, but not PC's. Typical.

There may be other programs similar to TouchCopy that are free if you look.

The new iPods are using flash drives inside so now the new iTunes will only recognize the iPod Touch and the old iPods use HARD DRIVES! So just remember that there are no disk mode in the new iPods!

Hope this helps!

The Solution #2 is correct because Ipod nanos all have flash memories but you can still view them through the "my computer" app so it must be true then that the new ipod touch CANNOT be viewed through "my computer"... my guess would be that the softwear available to take information from broken down ipod harddrives is also being used to steal/share music with other ipods... and since that would take business away from itunes they made sure that it wouldnt keep happening...

this is what i think... this is no BS

I found this solution to work. Try this first:
a) Get Windows to restart the drivers:
- disconnect your USB device and close ITunes
- connect your USB device
- if ITunes loads, close it.

b) File explorer:
Open File explorer and browse to
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers
In that folder there should be a set of files named "usbaapl64...."
right click on the one ending in "INF"
Select Install. It's very quick.
remove the USB device

c) Restart the computer.
When you login again, load ITunes before you attach your USB device.
d) If still not works, try re-install iTunes. Go into the Unstall Programs (in Control Panel) and uninstall everything that says Apple, and uninstall Bonjour. With the fresh install of iTunes, everything came back and is should work. Hope it helps.

f) If you just want to add some photos, songs and movies from computer to your devices, you can use an iTunes alternative to do the job.

How to copy iPod iPod Touch Games


<p>Apple iPod line was originally designed as a portable music player, but the newer models are portable multimedia devices capable of many things: playing music and videos and view photos. In addition, some models such as the iPod Touch even install and run applications and games. You can download games and applications from the iTunes store on your computer and copy them to your iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the larger end of the iPod to the USB port on the bottom of your iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the other end of the cable to a USB port on your computer. The iTunes software is automatically started when your computer recognizes your iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on your iPod Touch in the "Devices" section on the left side of the iTunes window. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click on "Applications" tab at the top center of the iTunes window. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Scroll through the applications and check the box to the left of each game you want to copy to your iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Click "Apply" and then click the "Sync" to select your iPod to copy games to your iPod Touch. <br />

Forgot password,how will i reset my ipod touch


When you plug the iPod into your computer, iTunes may not be able to sync it, but you should have the option to restore the iPod. This is the only way to really get past the passcode, but be warned, you lose all the data on the iPod, so hope you have a backup

How to transfer music/video from iPod to PC/iTunes 9


Anyone who has seen an iPod will understand the basic concept behind the design of the iPod touch: a 3.5-inch There are plenty of reasons why you want to transfer your music/video from iPod to iTunes or PC. For example, you may want to make backup your iPod music/video in case of hard drive crash, to retrieve iPod music/video when you accidentally deleted a song or video from your hard-drive, to share your music/video with your friend, to use your iPod with different or more than on computer, or to copy music/video to your new iPod.

Apple's iTunes really does work when it pulls iTunes purchased content off your iPod. The new iTunes 9 makes it easier to share music/video, movies, TV shows, and more. With Home Sharing, you can browse the iTunes libraries of up to five authorized computers in your house, import what you like, and automatically add new purchases made on any of the computers to your own library.

The iTunes 9 is nice for sharing the iTunes purchased content, but how to share the rest of your content of iPod with your friend, you'll need some additional software. There are a lot of programs that can transfer iPod content to iTunes 9 and PC. But from the point view of both functionality and simplicity, there is an iPod music/video Transfer which works well with all models of iPods including the latest iPod Touch 3G and iPod Nano 5G. Let's find it out.

The program is Wondershare iPod Transfer. By which, you can transfer usic/video between your iPod and PC freely, and you can transfer music/video to iTunes easily. First, connect your iPod to computer, and then you can do the following steps easily.

Transfer music/video from iPod to PC

Select one or more files in the file list, and click 'to-compter', then you can transfer iPhone music/video to your computer to share with your friends.

Copy music/video from PC to iPod directly

Select one or more files in the file list, and click 'to-ipod', then you can copy music/video from your PC to iPod directly without synchronizing iTunes.

Transfer music/video from iPod to iTunes 9

Just like copying music/video from iPhone to computer, you need to check video/audio files and then click 'to-itunes' The program will automatically open your iTunes after transferring is done.

This iPod Transfer works well on all models of iPods to transfer music and video from iPod to PC and iTunes.

I forgot my ipod touch password


When you forgot your passcode, iTunes will not recognize your iPod Touch unless you put it to DFU mode.

Once your iPod touch is in DFU mode, only thing that you can do next is to restore. This means, all data from your iPod touch will be deleted.

For instructions on how to put your iPod touch to DFU mode and restore, copy the web address below and paste it to your browsers navigation bar:

My ipod says connect to itunes.


To guest, yes it does.

unfortunately you will have to restore your ipod. Just connect it to your computer, and within itunes select the restore option on the ipod page.

The ipod should be able to be restored by the computer that last synced it.

Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,
