    So i had my ipod touch since it came out last year and its been doing fine but ever since i downloaded itunes 8 i been having a problem. Now every time i hook my ipod touch to my computer it saids "this ipod cannot be used because the apple mobile device service is not started" . So whats up with that? Is anyone else having this problem? It just started saying that and tomorrow im going to buy the new touch but i want all my current songs and apps sync to my computer before i get a new one. So if u know the problem i would really appreciate it . Sorry about posting it twice im new and i don't know which one would get more posts. Thanks again

    is your ipod touch jialbroken becuase when apple released itunes 8 they "pwned the pwnage team" but then they pwned them back. anyway if your touch is jailbroken then you need to go to there website.
    However if it is not jailbroken do a full uninstall of itunes, apple mobile device support, apple software update, and quicktime then reinstall
