Tip & How-To about Apple iPod touch

Ipod touch / or other ipod shows up as camera

I just fixed this problem in a live chat few days ago.

You need to open device manager.
right click my computer, select manage, on the left side find device manager.



Find the ipod from the list, click on "update driver", don't look online,




Then select install from list.


then


You should find 2 or more drivers in this part, select the ipod USB driver name may be different, just don't select the still camera that it is now using.

if it still installs the still camera driver for it

open up search

type in usbaapl

note where that driver is stored.
for example at c:\program files\apple\itunes\ (I just made that up its probably in another folder that's why we are Searching for it with the search tool)

Then go to device manager select the ipod, update driver, manually(as above), have disk - go to the address where the usbaapl is stored and click ok. it should find the driver, continue, it should install the driver, and you are done.

Thanks,
Ekse

How do I install INF


Inf's are installed manually via the device manager that you can open by right clicking on your computer and selecting manage. And from there on the left, click on device manager, then on the right select the device and update driver.

another way is to copy the inf file into windows\inf folder and have the computer update the driver on its own, (doesn't work unless the driver is newer)

sandisk crezer 4GB micro wont work


Try this,
Note:I assume you are on win XP.

Right click on my  computer and click manage.
Now on left side please select Device manager and look on the right side if you have any device that says "Unknow Device" or any device that is showing an Exclaimation Mark. If any of this exists then right click on that and uninstall. After this unplug your Flash drive and restart your computer and try inserting flash drive if it works or not.
If not, again go to device manager and expand an option that says "Disc Drives". Please check if it shows anything related to your Cruzer Flash Drive. If it's there, then go to Disc Management that will be there on left side of this same window. There, you need to look for your Removable disc and right click on it and click change drive letter. Now choose a different drive letter preferable one of the last alphabets like Z. After this click OK and now try going to my computer to check if it appears or not.
Moreover, if none of these solutions work please get back to me with some more info like if you have U3  on your Cruzer that comes preinstalled on your flash drive and the version of your OS.

my computer wont read disks it was able to a few days ago and i went to go put in a disk that needs to get installed before i can use a camera. I have tried others disks and it wont read any of them. Anything i can do to try or do to try and fix it?


You need to first check if the disk is being detected by Computer--

click start---computer ---check if the disk that u insert is visible there or not.
And also chk in device manager---by right click on computer--properties---device manager(vista)--look for cd/dvd drive.
right click on my computer---properties---hardware----device manager(xp))--look for cd/dvd drive.

If not visible in device manager then u have to open up ur computer and reseat the cd/dvd drive cables...

If its visble in device manager--then right click on the option under cd/dvd drive----properties----check for the error code.
If error code 19 , 31 , 32 , or 39 is displayed inside Device Status.

Then click start -- run -- and -- type regedit -- click ok . the registry editor appears.

In windows XP -- click file -- EXPORT-- TYPE A FILENAME THAT IS EASY FOR YOU TO REMEMBER AND CLICK SAVE.

A COPY OF THE REGISTORY HAS SAVED FOR BACKUP PURPOSE.
CLICK THE PLUS SIGN (+) NEXT TO THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN THE LIST :

In Vista click:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CURRENTCONTROLSET (OR THE CURRENT CONTROL SET WITH LOWEST NUMBER IF THAT IS ALL THAT IS LISTED)
CONTRO
CLASS
SELECT 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
SELECT THE UPPER FILTER IN THE RIGHT WINDOW AND PRESS THE DELETE KEY
CONFIRM THE DELETION BY CLICKING YES
SELECT THE LOWER FILTERS IN THE RIGHT WINDOW AND PRESS THE DELETE KEY
CONFIRM THE DELETION BY CLICKING YES
DELETE ALL OTHER UPPER FILTER AND LOWER FILTER VALUES WITHIN THE 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 KEY
CLOSE THE REGISTRY EDITOR AND RESTART THE COMPUTER ...
This should resolve the issue...
Let me the the error code and msg in device manager window.....

Thank you ....
