    Hi!
    I bought an iPod Touch 16GB and I'm not happy at all.
    I synced it using my MacBook and it only worked partially:
    When I try to sync a new TV-Show, it starts syncing and after a while an error code appears saying that iTunes can't find the the iPod disk, and it stops syncing there.
    The iPod works, but I don't have all Album Artworks, but only a few, although they're ok on iTunes..
    I have some video podcasts, but I still can't sync all my videos such as TV-shows purchased from iTunes.

    AND sometimes I connect it and iTunes wants to restore it. I select "restore from backup", it does, but then it asks again. the window "Set up your iPod" appears every time! I tried to restore it completely but it didn't help...

    I really don't know what it is, because everything worked on my iPod Nano 3G (videos, too). :confused: :confused:

    Thank you so much for an answer, and a happy new Year!!

    I'm having similar problems, only mine won't load music.

    I'd recommend sending it back, because if you just put up with it it will never work properly. You have a duff one.

    Get a refund, wait until they've sorted it out (second or third generation should do it - bit like Microsoft dev there, eh?)

    I Did It!

    Hey guys! Believe it or not, I did it!
    I jailbroke my iTouch by downgrading to 1.1.1, then installing installer.app and then upgrading again to 1.1.2.
    Maybe it worked because it restored completely or rebooted a few times...
    but I'm happy, because it works now, AND I have many cool APPS !!! :D
    :apple: forever!

    try this:
    connect it to your computer.
    don't open iTunes .
    click and hold the home button and the lock button on your iTouch.
    when the apple logo appears (about 6 seconds after holding them)
    only release the lock button and kerpthe home button pressed.
    When the "connect to iTunes "button appears, releanse thw button and manually Open iTunes.
    this causes a complete restore: you'll lose all your files.

    Hope this works!

    Then try to sync step by step. First contacts then music etc.

    If you have a PC, google "sharepod." Use this program to copy your songs from ipod to computer. If you have a Mac, there should be a similar program for Macs, google "copy songs from ipod to Mac." Good luck.

    In iTunes:

    - Click Store > Sign in
    - Enter the login details for the account used to make the iTunes purchases.
    - Plug in the iPod
    - iTunes will tell you that the iPod has been synced with another computer and needs to be erased in order to sync. Click cancel.
    - Right click the iPod itself in the devices menu (it's on the left side of the iTunes window, beneath Library, Store...)
    - Click transfer purchases. This will move the purchased content (applications, music) back into iTunes. This will not preserve content that was loaded into iTunes through importing or other sources.

    Note: Next time, make a new thread rather than bumping a 2-year old thread.
