    Just plugged in my ipod Touch to my PC and iTunes has come up in an oriental language - chinese/japanese. Maybe because Suduku was runnig at the time?

    I've tried changing programme, unplugging & plugging it in again, re-booting the PC etc, but cannot change it. Problem is, I now can't read the menus to find the options to change the language (it there is one....)

    Anyone any idea how to get it back to English?

    LOL, It takes forever to learn chinese.
    If you have a screenshot, I could probably translate it for you, unless it's japanese, then I can't translate it for you

    If I come up with some idea on how to solve it, I'll tell you, but at this moment, I have no idea

    Umm, before on older versions of iTunes you can change the language in the preferences tab. Now on iTunes 8 you can't...
    At this point, the only solution I can think of is to downgrade to 7.7 (I think it's that one)
    and then change the language there, then upgrade back to iTunes8
