    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 . Thanks

    Hey

    try going to the service window.

    Start>>Run>>services.msc

    Look for Apple Mobile Device. Right click and click start.. Should work for ya... if not, and it's already started, try restart.
