How To Reset an iPod Touch

3.) Method 3 – If your iPod boots, go into the system preferences and then General –> Reset. There you will find several settings to reset the iPod Touch.

If your iPod Touch still will not sync to a computer, try these additional steps.

1.) Try another USB port on your computer.
2.) Restart your computer.
3.) If you don’t already have it, download the latest version of iTunes.
