Please Help - I'll give you a $5 itunes gc

Ok.. I've asked for help with this before but nothing seems to work.

I'll admit, I'm not the best with technology.

Anyways, my problem is with Earthworm Jim, I so desperately want this game to work on my Ipod Touch, it's one of my favorites. I just can't seem to get it to work.

If I delete the whole entire app from my touch and comp, and re-download it, do a hard reset.. the game works, BUT the kicker.. my music and videos won't load after that.

I've tried many combinations of downloading, from the comp and direct from touch, and everything that I can think of.

If someone gives me advice that is able to somehow get EJ and my music to be on my Touch in perfect harmony, true to my word I'll send you a $5 Itunes gift card, I want it to work that badly.

I have the new 3g touch, 64 gbs, all the lastest software, (ipod + itunes)

Help!

just try what you have been doing....

Uninstalling the app from yuor device and deleting it from iTnues and then download it then sync it should work...

To be honest if you've tried everything then it's probably just a bug in the app and only the devs will be able to fix it, I've seen a few app store reviews that say the game won't start for them so I think the ball is in their hands.

The most safe thing you can do is restoring your iPod with a completely new software, then setting it up as a new iPod and syncing it back to it.

either report it to iTunes or gameloft, as it really looks like a bug or a malfunction in the iPod, or restore it (beware- all data will be erased) and sync it again- it should work. I have had a similar tragedy once, but i did what i mentioned above and it worked, so it shouldn`t be a problem. Surely it is just a minor problem. I hope this helped! hope i get the gift card!

try synchronising it to your ipod then if it doesn't work, hold the home and sleep button to restart it(hold it even after if shows the slide to turn off)

then try it

It's such a small amount, why would it be a fake? If someone offered $50, I might assume it's fake, but $5 is probably real.
I'd help the guy for free if I could, but I am kind of a techno-idiot...

I wouldn't come here and expect to pay $5 for help. It's a forum, and a good one too, so help should be given for free, but hey, whatever...

Maybe he didn't know how awesomely generous we are. I say if anyone manages to fix his problem, refuse the reward
