IPod is disabled connect to iTunes. Have connected to iTunes

Resolved Question:

IPod is disabled connect to iTunes. Have connected to iTunes many times and started the reboot. Halfway through the downloading process the iPod drops connectivity and the process tries to start all over. Have disabled the firewall on the computers, tried two different computers, removed all other USB jacks from the computers and attempted to reboot over twenty times. Same thing happens every time.

Thanks. Lets try to restore it by putting it to DFU Mode. First, download the latest iOS 6.1.3 firmware for your iPod from here (direct download link) : http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS6.1/091-2655.20130319.Wyt54/iPod4,1_6.1.3_10B329_Restore.ipsw

When you download it, you will get a file named iPod4,1_6.1.3_10B329_Restore.ipsw

Now you can restore it by putting it to DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) Mode. DFU Mode is a mode which will allow you to restore your iPod to working condition. Put your iPod to DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) Mode and restore it from iTunes. Follow the steps below to put your iPod to DFU Mode;
  • Connect the iPod to your computer with the USB Cable.
  • Open iTunes application on your computer
  • On your iPod Press and hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time.
  • After exactly 8 seconds release the Power button. Continue holding the home button until your iTunes shows a message telling you that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.
  • Then hold down Shift key (or Option key if on Mac) and click Restore button. It will ask you to select the firmware file. Select the iPod4,1_6.1.3_10B329_Restore.ipsw you've downloaded above and click OK or Open.
  • Then let iTunes to restore your iPod.



Note : Put it to DFU Mode while connected to computer and also in DFU Mode your iPod will remain blank/black. Timing is critical when you put it to DFU Mode, so keep trying until it goes to DFU Mode.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

  • 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
