Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Ipod 30gb My Packard Bell Computer runs Windows Vista. When I first connected the ipod to the computer it showed up under 'Computer' drive K: and installed iTunes and downloaded some songs and that was fine put it in my i-station speaker dock then put it back onto the computer and the computer had taken it off of 'Computer'. When I downloaded driver detective the scan showed the ipod as being on a System Driver?? Have been trying for 4 days now to work this out? Basically my computer does not read it as a portable device. Have tried the reset but stays in 'disk mode' does not go into 'please do not disconnect'. Have plugged it into the usb at the back of the hard drive instead of the front (incase it needs more power as some suggest). Have un-installed/re-installed iTunes etc. Have turned the power off at the wall and also restored it to an early time before I had the ipod. It's so frustrating I just need someone to tell me who has got the knowledge about these things. Please help. Sally

This might be something as simple as the order inwhich you do things.
1. make sure Itunes is installed first. This should give you all the drivers you need.
2. Run Itunes.
3. Then hook up the ipod. (In order for your computer to regonise it as a portiable player you have to run itunes first, other wise it is a hard drive and will be seen as one.
4. Give itunes a few minutes to discover the device. You may have to go under your windows and sya cync Ipod.
5. With in Itunes should be an ipod screen that shows up under the area the play lists show up, but above the coustom play lists and below the itunes store.
6. click on this window and you should see your ipod and be able to sync it with all your music and more.

If you have any furhter issues email me or write back here.

Ipod touch will not open in itunes


Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch may not appear under Devices in iTunes after you connect it to your Windows PC. If you see your iPod in My Computer (Windows XP) or Computer (Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8) but not in iTunes under Devices, try these steps. Start at the top and work your way through the steps until iTunes recognizes your iPod. http://mhelpdesk.com/field-service-management-software/

My 30gb ipod is locked


restore your ipod, it will solve the problem.
Here is the REAL solution. Ending ipodservice.exe will NOT WORK.

1) Plug your ipod into the computer using firewire or USB.
2) Open MY COMPUTER
3) Wait until the ipod shows up as a drive letter
4) Right click on the ipod drive letter and do a ' quick format ' (Now the ipod is just a plain windows hard drive)
5) When it is complete, run the ipod updater and do a Restore. This puts the ipod software back onto it
6) Remove the ipod from the usb or firewire port, plug it into the wall power supply and allow it to finish the update

If I've helped one person, then I'm happy.

Transferring pics from ipod video, 30gb back to laptop


I don't think that is possible. Its a one way thing where you can only put pictures from your computer into the IPod.

If it does work, click on your Ipod in Itunes and go to the pictures folder and see if it will let you drag and drop them.

If it does then it work but ITunes doesn't work that way under normal situations.

This screen will not move on Do not disconnect, after it was connected to computer using windows vista


if it shows this you must eject the ipod first...click on the little eject button beside your ipod in iTunes, or, go into my computer (in Windows), right click on your ipod icon, and click eject..hope this helps
it might also show up as an icon in your system tray (bottom right corner of your screen if you are running windows). It should say something like "click here to eject usb drive"..

Do Not disconnect message


if you don't eject the iPod, that is what will happen.

 

to eject it alternatively, what you should do is go into control panel\system and find the device manager.

 

You should find it under removable drives. click it and and select disable.

 

Then it should be ejected.

 

hope this helps.
