    Hi all,
    thanks in advance for the help. When I start the iPod app, it opens briefly and immediately closes, taking me back to the home screen. I have synched several times, powered on/off and still does the same. When connected to iTunes on my computer, it shows that there is music loaded. Anyone have ant ideas?

    remove a song or add a new song and then sync again.

    Still no luck

    I gave that a try. Still no luck. Is there anyway to reinstall that app?

    Restore did not solve the problem :(

    Just finished restore from iTunes. No luck - DANG. All my earlier installed apps are gone - how do I easily get these back? And iPod app still does not work. I'm ready to junk this thing. Any more ideas will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    OK, got it working. Found a thread on another forum. Suggestion was to watch a video and then iPod app will be magically fixed. It magically worked. Even tho I had done this in the past, somehow the combo of the restore and this, has fixed it.

    Now, how do I get my apps back after the restore?

    Thanks all

    I been having the same problem too. iPod app kept crashing. Thanks skippyman! You saved me from restoring. :) Playing a video did "magically" fixed the problem.

    To get your app back, right-click on your iPad in iTunes and click "Restore from Backup..."

    Video option didn't work for me. My video app is crashing immediately as well! This is terrible.
    Any advise? I am doing a restore right now. Seems like this is going to take forever.

    You can redownload any app from the app store, it will act like you're purchasing but a popup comes unjust before downloading and says you've already purchased this do you want to reload...just click ok

    App?

    So re-downloading an app from the app store on my ipad will fix the video and ipod app crashes?
    I already restored to original settings and removed ALL my videos and music. If your msg works, maybe it will help many people in the future.

    Let me know if I am misunderstanding.

    Thanks.

    No redownloading your apps is an option if they are missing after you've had to do a restore.

    I had same problem, Facebook App would open then close immediately. I found I had run out of disk storage, and I guess Facebook app got corrupted. I deleted the Facebook app, made more disk space by deleting apps I dont use, then downloaded it again for free from the app store. All fixed, working well. I am thinking that trying to save photos when I was out of disk storage space, and Facebook was running in background, somehow allowed Facebook to get corrupted, not sure. But, deleting the Facebook app and reinstalling worked great. I have an iPad3 with 32GB memory.
