    Your punctuation keys are also broken! :eek: :p

    So you've had a touch for awhile and received a replacement touch. You are trying to move content or what? What do you mean "the guy
    unregistered the old one and i think he registered the other"? The worker opened your iPod? Why? :confused:

    Do you mean it won't connect in iTunes? Was this an Apple Store?

    Ok, we understand you are new to MacRumors and you are "pissed" about your touch. But, in order for us to help you, you are going to have to form complete sentences and answer some of the questions that are being asked. ;)

    Slow down and tell us (with details) exactly what is happening. :)

    Still, don't really understand your situation but... :confused:

    You do know that an iPod can only be "Activated" on one computer. Maybe you activated it on your friends computer and your computer now will not recognize it?

    Ok you need to know that the forums aren't text messages. If you want to forgo things like punctuation and clear sentences then at least spell words out completely. You don't even need to spell them correctly.

    Now, when you get your iPod it will show a picture of a usb plug and the iTunes icon. You need to plug it into your computer and go through the initial setup process. From there, you can only sync your iPod with one computer and that computer should be one you have access to often

    If it is showing a plug in and the iTunes symbol then plug it in and follow the on screen directions in iTunes. It should show up under devices on the left side of iTunes. Here is a pic…

    When you plug it in does iTunes open? If so what does it say when you click on the iPod in the Device list?
