Error 13213 with iPod Touch? [Fix]

10 09 2008

Yesterday, I downloaded the new version of iTunes along with the update for my iPod touch. In doing so, I got the error message “The iPod “Jahfers iPod” cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (13213).

My first guess was that something went wrong in the iPod firmware update so I restored it to factory settings. If you have gotten this error too, don’t bother – it doesn’t help. As of yesterday there was nothing on the web but today I found a discussion on Apple’s site that seems to have fixed the issue. Follow the steps below and your ipod should work fine.
1. Unplug your iPod Touch and turn it off. Hold the power button at the top until the red slider appears and power it down completely.
2. Quit iTunes 8
3. Relaunch iTunes 8
4. Plug in Touch – DO NOT TURN IT ON FIRST. Make sure it’s still off completely from step 1.
5. Should sync normally

Will I have to do this each time I sync the iPod?

No, you shouldn’t have to. You should only have to do this the first time, then it will function as normal.
