    well im new here but I have had my touch for quite a while about 8 months ands well I plugged it in yesterday and uploaded my new songs and when I ejected it and tried to play the new songs they werent there :( then I went back to itunes did the whole thing again and nope not there... I have to say my iTouch was jailbroken but then I restored the ipod back to factory setting and still nada no songs coming up... I then upgraded the ipod to 2.2 and STILL THE SAME THING! :( I can put everything on the ipod but videos and songs... photos go on fine and when I check the itouch page which shows you how much video and audio cover your hdd... it doesnt cover anything but "other" covers alot :( any ideas whats going on with this?? Ive done this on a PC and a Mac, Used multiple different versions of iTouch firmware... I have no idea what to do :( anybody have any idea what I should do?? (Im overseas atm so returning it to Apple is not an option :() If there is nothing I can do I have been eyeing the Gears of war 2 special edition Zune so might pick that up if there is nothing to do with the touch

    Sarcasm and Help

    Hate to be the first to comment but it's an iPod Touch, not an iTouch, there has never been a product sold by Apple called an iTouch, sounds like a bogus product for a Saturday Night Live commercial spoofing Apple.

    Try a DFU restore.

    (1) Plug in Touch to the USB cable and power.
    (2) While holding both buttons wait until the screen goes black
    (3) Let go of the top sleep button keep holding home button
    (4) iTunes should launch and Touch should have a blank screen
    (5) When iTunes says found an iPod in recovery mode click restore.
    iPod will reboot and need to be connected to iTunes again and then try transferring music and videos over again.

    This is not the same as just clicking the restore button.

    All else fails bring it to the Genius Bar and have them look at it and if it's under a year they might replace it if they can replicate the issues.

    See thread "music lost from iPod touch" started 11/17/08. It sounds like the same problem I had. Hope this helps.
