I tested it again and discovered that when I attached it, I couldn't hook it up completely to where it snapped into place or the i Pod would just charge and not get recognized or sync. Unfortunately, I took the advice of others and uninstalled a USB port..I can't reinstall the main one. It says something about the apple application support and about the ituneshelper.That's a whole other list of issues for another day. i went to an apple store and they said it is cause I installed the latest version of itunes. Still an i Pod fan Hi, I have done what you have suggested, and it then says that the best software for the device is already installed, but itunes still won't recognise it.
I've tried resetting and different USB cords, but my computer still won't recognize it! I actually never noticed this trick with the menu and center button. Thank you so much - I have been searching for a while and and have tried installing and uninstalling itunes and all sorts - then i find this simple quick solution and it works!! There's many reason why those two doesn't seem to work. If the first option doesn't work, here's my second option: 2. Hold the menu button, and let it reboot (Don't forget to leave it plugged in) Now in your computer, go to your Control Panel.
I recently got about 50 new songs, plugged up my i Pod, made the sync list and everything else using Windows Media Player (the system on my computer I use to sync music to my i Pod) and it always says my i Pod isn't connected. My old i Pod Nano is connected with my Macbook again, I was totally confused when it didn't show up in my i Tunes bar! Hold your menu button down for about 15 seconds, let it reboot, and plug it back it in to your computer again, your computer should then recongnize your i Pod.
Hello, one day when my ipod ran out of battery and I connected it to my computer but it didn't show up and it still charged so I connected it to my macbook and it showed up. But thanks to Kioskea.net, I was able to find you the answers. In your Control Panel, open System and click the Hardware tab. Find Universal Serial Bus Control, right- click Apple Mobile Device USB Driver and uninstall it.
The next day I spent $50 worth of songs on my computer but my ipod doesn't connect so I can't add them on and i'm afraid that if I uninstall itunes then that money will go to waste what can I do?? its not the computer its the ipod hold down the menu and the center buutton for about 15 second and that reboots it (dont worry you'll keep all your files and then plug it into the computer again, it should turn on! I tried installing itunes again but it still didnt work. I tried for 6 hours lastnight to fix this issue, I had uninstalled & reinstalled drivers, reset my laptop, everything.... (If if's not installed with i Tunes, get it) If all these doesn't work, I guess you could just pray and unplug and plug your i Pod. I have an ] touch 2 gen, and my computer ALWAYS recognizes it as a Digital Camera .
So, to anyone who's tried uninstalling and reinstalling things, a word of advice, CHECK YOUR CORD FIRST. but now my computer(windows 7) wont recognize my ipod AT ALL! when I have plugged it into a relatives pc, it shows up but not on my laptop. was wondering if u r a pro and have any tips and tricks websites. The problem is, my computer won't recoginze the i Touch, so how is it supposed to show up in the Device Manager?
IVE HAD THIS PROBLEM FOR AGES WITH MY NANO, APPLE SUPPORT DIDNT HELP. I followed your directions and everything is working perfectly. I recently rebooted the laptop and wonder if this is a problem, any ideas? Since ur tips are effective would follow urs intead of other junks around. I had the same problem as yours, but my i Touch is not showing up anywhere and is only recoginzed under Autoplay?
By far the easiest way to sync an i Phone to a new Mac or Windows PC is to transfer all i Phone files and backups from the old computer to the new one.
The necessary data is stored in several different locations, and we’ll cover what files and where they go for both Mac OS X and Windows.
I already went the other way through Device Manager as well to update drivers, and it said the most recent drivers for this were already installed.
