    I downloaded the ZiPhone application, and i clicked the jail break button. But on the iTunes, it keeps saying "This iPod cannot be used becausse the Apple Mobile Device service is not started." I have noooo idea what this means or how to fix it. It won't even connect my iPod to the iTunes. ! Can someone please help me so that it connects to iTunes?

    PC or Mac?

    On a PC it's a service that always runs in the background. Check Task Manager Processes and see if iPodService is listed as running.

    If not, reboot and then see if it's there. If not, re-install iTunes.

    Just restart iTunes. That's what I always do and it always works for me.
    Give credit where credit is due, press "thank you"
    When all else fails, put it into restore mode!!!
    Remember, Google is your best friend. And so is YouTube!!!

    If I reinstall iTunes, will it delete all the songs that I ripped from CD's from iTunes?
