    This is being discussed on a few threads. I use Vista. I upgraded to Itunes 7.7 and upgraded my 16gb touch to 2.0. I went through the hassle of reinstalling the new iTunes a couple of times and uninstalling when it wouldn't recognize my touch. Eventually I tried what I do when any program in Vista says "not responding". I wait till it responds. This is what you have to do in Itunes and the IPT for now evidently. Whenever I connect, Itunes appears to freeze and doesn't recognize the IPT. I wait. Within a few minutes, it eventually sees it and starts synching. I think this could be the Apple server backed up or a glich I hope they fix soon. By the way, you cant drag the new apps anywhere. You have to synch them. Monkeyball is great!

    Same thing here.
    Until I installed the 2.0 firmware, everything was fine. Now it takes 2-3 min until the Touch is recognized. In the activity monitor the processes called 'spindump' and 'usbmuxd' are at the top of the list, and iTunes shows up as not responding. Not long before the iPod is finally mounted, first spindump then usbmuxd disappear.
    Any ideas?

    Same problem here. Kernel panic for a minute or so, then everything seems fine...

    Same problem here. All was well with my 32G Touch on my Mac Book Pro with OS10.5.4
    Updated to Itunes 7.7, bought the 2.0 Touch upgrade and never got to install it because the computer doesn't see the IPod! I've tried resetting the Ipod, powering off and on, restarting the computer, switching cables... nothing. Help!

    Follow-up

    Turns out the Ipod showed up after I tried a third cable. I'm updating it now...

    same problem here with iPod Touch 32GB, iMac C2D OS X 10.5, iTunes 7.7

    I updated the Touch to 2.0 successfully, and for several days everything worked fine, same as usual. Worked this morning just fine, too. Suddenly this afternoon when I plugged it in to sync with my iMac, iTunes seemed to hang and the Touch didn't mount. just a spinning beach ball and unresponsive iTunes.

    it does this every time I connect it now - if I wait 4 or 5 minutes or so, eventually the iPod Touch mounts and I can sync. it used to mount within a few seconds.

    only difference between this a.m. when it was working normally and this afternoon was I downloaded a couple apps from the app store this afternoon before plugging in to sync. but I had done that on previous days without problem. I've tried deleting the new apps I downloaded in case that was the cause but no difference. also tried rebooting the iMac, rebooting the Touch - still same problem.

    Here too - iTunes 7.7 wouldn't see the iPod Touch, even before loading the 2.0 update. So I thought to use the Mac Book Pro for the update - but that would have blitzed everything on the Touch, since the G4 tower was my main music machine.

    Tried and tried on the G4, and one time waited long enough for it to happen. BTW Force Quit tells me iTunes is not responding, which clearly ain't so - it's doing something, but very slowly...

    So I got 2.0 on the touch and thought my probs were over - oh no, today same thing, and when I do get there the G4 starts behaving weirdly, copying 2 copies of each podcast over to the Touch ...

    I didn't even want an update. I was happy with .mac and my music - but along comes me.com, demands iPod 2.0, demands iTunes 7.7 - and all of them buggy. GRRRR.. :0(

    Thx for letting me vent

    I installed 7.7 on my Pc (Win XP) then bough (and installed) 2.0 on my touch. It seemed to make a backup of all my music and settings then completely restore dthe ipod. FAter it managed to restore the settings but after trying the to restore musci my PC automatically went back to the log in screen. AFter than everytime i connect my ipod iTunes freezes. I tried resseting sync history. Ill try using iTunes on a different acount though i doubt that will work.

    update: ive noticed that now all my app store bought applications crash. i think though im not sure that restoring might work
  • Florevla Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    restoring with 2.0 seems to help but its a bit drastic but if your relleay desperate its is a last resort
  • Brett C Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)
    update: I restored to 2.0 and everything seemed fine again... at least, for the first couple syncs.

    but then after a few times it started doing it again - i.e. takes quite a few minutes after connecting to the dock cable before the iPod Touch shows up in iTunes. it seems like iTunes is hung but it eventually shows up.

    I say it's a bug in either iTunes 7.7 or in the v2.0 firmware.

    p.s. I forgot to mention - the spinning beachball problem doesn't happen when I connect my old 5G iPod to my iMac. just the iPod Touch.
  • Brett C Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)
    hey everyone, iTunes 7.7.1 is just released via Software Update.
    it says "iTunes 7.7.1 includes fixes to improve stability and performance."

    I just installed the update, and now my beachballing problem is gone! plug in the iPod Touch and it appears in iTunes within a few seconds, like normal.

    thanks Apple!

    I just updated iTunes to 7.7.1 this evening and the spinning beach ball that afflicted my new Touch has disappeared. Hope the rest of you find the same relief.
