    8.1 and iTunes Cannot sync iPod Touch (3rd gen.)

    Anybody out there know of a "fix" for iTunes and Windows 8.1? Can't sync my iPod Touch (3rd gen.) at all, and now iTunes simply shuts down even after double-clicking on the icon on my desktop (can't access my Library).
    PC is an HP, less than two years old; always worked before (likely the upgrade to .1 is the cause of all this!).

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

    I have the iPod classic (80gig, circa 2009) and it's syncing fine with the latest version of iTunes ( This is under Windows 8.1 with all the updates. Point being I don't think it's a compatibility issue.

    If possible you can try resetting the iPod from within the iPod itself by going to Settings, and then clicking Reset Settings, and see if that works.

    Let us know.

iOS App for iPhone and iPod Touch 5
Hey guys! I was wondering if there could be an update for the new screens for Apple. I bought an iPod Touch for songs, since I've been a long-term iTunes user. I downloaded the EF Mobile app and used it on my old iPod (2nd Gen). Any updates soon? :) Thanks! TheGrantFitz :winkey:

iTunes Sync Issues
Since installing Windows 8, I've noticed that iPhone is not showing up on the devices list in iTunes. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it just a matter of waiting for Apple to update drivers? Or is there a trick to get this working now?
