For it to recongnize, maybe try:
1: go to control panel
2:add hardware
3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list
6:scroll down to windows portable devices
7:and choose MTP device
this should make it so your ipod is now recognised by the computer

How do you you hook up an ipod to a computer


  1. Connect the small end of the USB cable to a high-powered (2.0) USB port on your computer.
  2. Connect the large end of the USB cable to your iPod's dock connector, which is located on the bottom of your iPod.
  3. Open the iTunes software on your computer. When your computer recognizes your iPod, an iPod icon will be displayed in the device list on the left-hand side of the iTunes software window.

Does the computer not recognize it or windows media player? If it's the computer then your USB drive on the comp is to old. If it's wmp then maybe your iPod isn't supporte or something

Don't know how to reject the ipod nano when charging at computer


  1. Once the iPod is attached to the iPod and USB port in the computer, an icon will appear at the bottom of the computer desktop. The icon is from removing the USB Mass Storage Device
  2. Now, click on the enject icon and it will show which drive the USB cord is attached to. Once the icon is clicked on, the iPod will show an arrow going down and reading "OK to disconnect". Once able to disconnect, the USB cord can be removed from iPod.
  3. Another way to eject the iPod from USB cord is through iTunes. Once anything you want sync'd to your iPod is complete, a message will appear on the iPod reading, "OK to disconnect". Just like it did on the ejecting icon on your desktop.

My i touch won't open as an MP3 player, it comes up as camera


If you open your Itunes program then connect your iPod, the Itunes program will wait for any other requests before accessing the device. You can ignore the request as user staam posted, and the ipod will be read from Itunes. If for some reason your device is not asking you for the option of how to open it and not being read from Itunes at all then you will have to reset how it automatically opens the device. You can do this by changing the autoplay settings in the control panel.
Open control panel, select classic view and find the default programs setting. Once there select change auto play settings, and scroll down to the bottom.
You can than change how your attached device acts when plugged in. Or you can set everything as default and that way you will be asked how to open it next time.
