Okay, I'm getting pretty freaking PO'd with this problem.


I'm running Win XP-64bit, latest iTunes (hacked obviously, because Apple don't support XP 64-bit) and I have a 4G iPod Touch. The second I now own.

Originally, my previous iPod had an issue with the camera, I thought the new software update might fix it, so I (stupidly, it seems) attempted to download it. When I did, it failed and the computer and iTunes completely failed to recognise the iPod. I got a replacement, and that would not sync to iTunes for almost a week. It identified the iPod as a camera, but everytime I tried to select the driver from C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl64_EA20A8EBD0BD2DD06333A241F582D3C54BB4E547 /usbaapl.sys, it would just call it 'Apple Mobile Device USB Driver' and iTunes would still ignore it. I had to reinstall my hacked iTunes TWICE to get it to work. Then, when it finally did find the iPod to sync, it automatically started the iPod software update WHICH FAILED AGAIN and now the iPod is back in Recovery Mode and I can't get iTunes to find it to recover it.

I've been through almost every page of the Apple "Support" webpages with no appreciable benefit.


Do I need to return yet another iPod for yet another replacement or what?

    Well if it is hold the sleep/wake button and the home button at te same time and wait until your ipod touch reboots.

    The screen has the 'connect to iTunes' screen. I tried the Sleep/Wake+Home reboot option and that did nothing.

    Doing this caused the 'Find New Hardware' interface to come up....


    iTunes has detected the iPod!

    Updating and restoring, watch this space!

  • Mark Gunton Level 1 (0 points)

    Update: iTunes attempted to update and restore. Unfortunately, it spent fifteen minutes downloading the update only to throw up a 1601 failure error. I read up what it might be and killed both AVG and Win Firewall. Tried again. another 1601.


    I'm seriously considering getting rid of iTunes and iPod and using a less troublesome mp3 player.

    If you have a good backup on your computer I would try to restore the iPod on another computer and then restore from backup on your computer.

    I had the same problem with mine, Yes hacked. This is what i did. Go to devices and printers in the start button. It should say "Apple iPod in Recovery Mode" Click that device.
