    I was jailbreaking my ipod touch 1.1.4 and then It worked and all and I was playing like games and downloading apps to my touch so I decide to reboot my computer...after I just restore my ipod from the jailbreaking so it's back to new or w/e. So When I restart my computer and try to login to my account (WITH ALL MY MUSIC AND FILES) It logs me out after like 3 seconds when I log in. I have no idea what is going on. All my music is on that account and right now Im on another account but my I have no backups of my music. Can anyone help ?

    First off the iPod touch didn't break your computer.
    Second it sounds like you may have a virus that you contracted from downloading stuff for the touch (be more careful).
    Third: boot into safe mode, copy all your important files to an external drive, erase and install.

    Did you pirate your music from limewire?? If so.. DONT! It is illegal and can give you viruses like crazy...

    I would recommend that you stop illegally downloading if you are.. and get a Mac.

    This may help... link.

    The iPod didn't screw your computer. You did.

    I love that option! Sure beats the heck out of windows! I am so glad I decided to get a mac. Everyone was scrunching up their noses at that one when I told them. Now my daughter and husband wants one. :D

    Sorry I seem to have went off topic and stole your thread.

    Could also be a corrupt file on the desktop thats causing the Finder to repeatedly crash when you log in.

    Login with your admin account instead of your regular user account. Does the problem still occur?

    you could be a little nicer as he did believe that this did have something to do with his iPod.

    To the OP: have you tried booting from your install disk and using disk utilities?

    Suggesting someone visit a place where they can get more and better help is rude?

    Do you have all of your content backed up? If I and you can't get restore discs for it, take it to an Apple store if there's one nearby and they should be able to reinstall 10.4 for you.

    Navigate to the root level of your hard drive (you'll have folders for the system, users, library, etc.). Open the 'users' folder. Open the folder for the user that you're trying to get the music from. Drag n drop the music folder to your current music folder.

    To do this, you may need to change the permissions of the music folder. Select the music folder, and get info (command i, right click, or from a menu). Under the permissions area, change your currently logged in user to the owner of the folder and click the 'apply to all enclosed items' (if memory serves).

    Anyhew, that'll get your music moved over, but if you post your q over in the system help area, you can get some targeted advice that'll get your user account back in shape.
