I have a classic 60GB and a Touch 16GB that no longer connect to iTunes they are full of music, but of course i want to put more on.
I have tried to connect them to iTunes using different cables (all of which work with a iphone)
When they are connected to a Mac nothing happens. When plugged into a PC on vista a message comes up saying device has been connected but has malfunctioned and is not being recognised.
I have put the touch into recovery mode and tried plugging it in but no connection was made.
I am tentative to do a complete reset on them as this may lose all the songs that are on there, and i dont want to do this incase they cannot be jailbroken to reconnect and as a result lose the slight usability they have at the moment.
The iPod touch chargers when plugged in, however the classic only chargers off a car charger, but this is an old problem from before the non connecting issue.
My main questions are: Is it worth doing a complete reset? Is this likely to remedy the problem?
Should i try jailbreaking to make them usable, will this remedy the problem or will they remain unusable?
Cheers for your help in advance.
