My ipod touch will not start up even tho i have repeatedly held power button and the button on the front of the ipod, it only goes to the picture which displays the usb cable and the itunes sign so i can easily tell it wants me to connect it to itunes. I plug it into the computer and the acer laptop im using makes the sound to show that the laptop itself has recognised the ipod but itunes will not recognise it. What do i do? If i have to restore my ipod i will loose everything on it and another factor which annoys me to think about is i have spent over £70 on itunes on the ipod since the last time i synced it to a pc and another factor that annoys the hell outta me is that the computer i have originally synced it to is an old pc that ran out of memory so i deleted all the songs that i previously had on it and that i synced to my ipod. The previous times i had it connected to the laptop i quickly cancelled the sync process to it never synced and deleted all my songs. I have been charging it via Ps3 and Xbox 360 everytime it needed charged. I would also like to know if all my songs that i purchased on the ipod are deleted will itunes supply another copy of the songs free of charge as i have previously bought them and i have proof via emails of these purchases. Please guys help me fix this as i use my ipod everyday and its my main source of music and apps.
