    I have been given an iPod Touch by my son and want to upload my old vinyl music - now in MP3 format - onto my iPOD, but when I plug it into my Windows computer it only recognises it as a Camera ! Could someone kindly tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks

    I have just installed iTunes but now it doesn't recognise it at all. Clearly I'm doing something wrong.

    Try Going into recovery mode. To do this, First, Make sure the iPod is plugged in. When the iPod is Turned ON, Hold the 2 buttons (Home, and Top) and KEEP holding them. The iPod Will shut off (keep holding), and when you see the apple logo, let go of the Top button, but keep holding the home button. Then a picture of a cable linking up to iTunes will appear, and iTunes Should recognise it.

    Hope this helps

    Plug in your iPod to your computer using the sync cable.

    iTunes should automatically open up and detect your iPod in the left-hand side menu under Devices.

    maybe its ur itunes version
    if it is then update it to the newest one
    if it isnt then try forcing to restore ur touch by connecting it thruogh the usb cable while holding the home button (u have to turn off ur ipod first by holding home+power button for like 15 secs.but dont turn it off by the sliding method)till itunes appears and asks u if u want to restore ur touch then just follow on

    or just follow this youtube link its clearer
