Hey,

Just got iPod touch and having problems. Thought you could help (it’s my first experience with Apple – and NOT impressed!)

When i turn it on i keep getting the “connect to itunes” icon. Battery is full, iTunes is installed & account registered, iPod is connected to USB .

The help is a pile of rubbish too. says:

1: Dowload itunes – DONE 2: connect iPod to PC – DONE 3: Follow onscreen instructions in iTunes to setup iPod touch – IT DOESN ’T GIVE ME THIS OPTION !!

i’ve tried resetting the iPod & reinstalling itunes, but i just can’t get the ipod to do anything.

please help if you can.

thanks

Do you have another pc you could try it on? It may also be faulty.

Your better finding a technical forum for this.

But anyway, When I got my touch, I just plugged it in, downloaded iTunes and off it went…

So, when you plug it in is your PC recognising that it is connected?

Try a “hard reset” on the iPod.
