- Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
- If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
- Try on another computer
- If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.
Thank you so much for the reply IIIaass. I have put the ipod in DFU mode which is letting me use the ipod as normal however, when I connect it to my computer its giving me a warning box in itunes which says ' AN IPOD HAS BEEN DETECTED BUT IT COULD NOT BE IDENTIFIED PROPERLY. PLEASE DISCONNECT AND RECONNECT THE IPOD THEN TRY AGAIN. IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS, PLEASE UNINSTALL ITUNES THEN REINSTALL ITUNES'.
Ideally, i dont want to have to uninstall itunes... is there a way around this?
