    - Go to Settings>General>Rset>Erase all content and settings.

    If the iPod has iOS 5 or later you can then either set up via wifi or connect to computer and set up the iPod. If bot you have to connect to computer.

    - Connect the iPod to your computer and restore via iTunes. See:

    I am currently an owner of an Ipod Touch 4th generation. I see you are having problems with your Ipod Touch, so I will try to find a solution to your problem.

    • Plug into computer, Itunes, then click on your device
    • Summary Tab
    • click on "Restore"
    • let it restore
    • when finished,click on "Setup as new Ipod"


    Hope that helps!

    If none of the above solutions work, can you please respond back ASAP as I will try to find another solution to your problem (This might even help others with the same problem!)
