I registered my ipod touch from a different computer than my home. How can I change it to my home computer?
Also, I am connected to the net by radiowave. Do I need a wifi connection as well?

Thanks

Hello,

Yes, the iPod touch required Wi-Fi access to get online. Sorry about that...

As for changing the iPod touch to link to a different computer, do you have purchased music and applications on it yet?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I have purchased a couple of games and am unable to play them or even open them. I do have a couple songs that I was able to download but haven't been able to get anymore...

Expert:  Dave Huber replied 5 years ago.
Okay, do you want to try to get those apps and songs from the iPod to the computer, or do you just want to start from scratch?

Also, is this a Mac or Windows computer you are going to connect to?

-Dave
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I guess I'd better start from scratch.

The computer is Windows.

Being as I don't have a WiFi connection yet am I spinning my wheels? Should I wait until I get the WiFi?
Expert:  Dave Huber replied 5 years ago.
No real reason to wait. I mean, you can use the iPod with any music you can load onto it, but it really starts to be useful when you can connect to the Net, but you'll need to do this anyway.

In any event, you should be able to:

Make sure you have the latest iTunes. You can get it at http://www.apple.com/itunes/download or you can choose Help > Check for Updates

plug the iPod touch into your computer with the USB cable.

Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under "Devices"

Click the Summary tab.

Select the Restore option.

When prompted, you can elect to back it up or not

Select the Restore option when iTunes gives you the choice

Once the restore is done, the iPhone iPod will reboot.


That should do it!


Take care and good luck,


Dave

I can't find the "devices".

I printed out the instructions.
I'm going to bed now and will resume tomorrow.

Thanks

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
