I purchased an ipod touch approx 1 and a half years ago. I have never updated the software. I updated my itunes on my computer and since then the Ipod touch is not recognized when I plug it into the USB. Any idea how to get around this issue?
If you are using IOS 4, you need to connect to iTune (computer) to update software.
Update to IOS 5 or higher
Turn on your Menu and Sidebar in iTune
Ctrl+S to view Sidebar
Ctrl+B to view Menu Bar
