Restore ipod touch without updating
We’re going to cover a variety of troubleshooting tricks to fix the syncing problem here, try each in descending order until the problem is resolved.Restarting an i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch is just a matter of Holding down the Power button and Home button simultaneously until the device restarts.Technically, that approach is called a Hard Reboot because it forcibly restarts the i OS device, but in situations where things are acting up, crashing, or just not behaving properly, it’s usually more effective to force reboot than to use the standard power-off approach.Before trying anything else, be sure you have the newest version of i Tunes on the computer. Sometimes just updating to the newest version of i Tunes is enough to resolve all syncing problems, particularly if the desktop software hasn’t been updated in a while.
You can always download the newest version of i Tunes directly from Apple by clicking here. Simply quit out of i Tunes, then relaunch the app, and try syncing again.
The OTA download weighs in around 225MB and requires a reboot to install.
