Everytime I sync w/my iMac, my iPod date resets to 1969.  Then when I adjust the date, a thousand (seemingly) alarms fly up for all the events I've missed since 1969.... Help!


iPod touch, iOS 4.2, Model MC086LL, Version 4.2.1

    Head to Settings -> General -> International and make sure the Calendar is set to Gregorian.

    It is already set to Gregorian.  Thanks for the reply, but this is not the problem.

    Have you checked to make sure the Date and Time are set correctly on your iPod Touch?  Did you also make sure that the time zone was correct as well?

     

    I'm assuming the date, time, and time zone are also set correctly on your iMac?

     

    Have you tried restoring the iPod from a backup in iTunes to see if that helps?

    Yes, date & time are set correctly on both my iMac and my iPod.  As this problem has always occurred since my very first sync, I don't see how a restore will help.  Checking other messages on date issues, restore did not help.

    If this has been the case since the very beginning, then it's likely hardware related.  In that case, make a trip to your local Apple store/Genius bar and they should be able to assist you.  Since your iPod is still under the 1 year warranty covering manufacturer defects, they may replace it for you on the spot.
