Question about Apple iPod shuffle Second Gen. Silver (1 GB) MP3 Player (MA564LL/A)
So I have iTunes on my computer, my friend gave me is not working on my computer. I plug it in, and I get a message that says some ******** about the "F" drive not being available.So I download iTunes again (it's the newest one) and in the process of doing so it won't let me download it cause of this "F" drive thing. I try to change it to "C" drive, but it won't ******* let me. WHAT THE HELL? Anyone help?
Hi. Please calm down and stop swearing in your post, as i don't think many people will want to help you unless you do. Getting angry and losing your temper will get you nowhere very fast. There are several possible reasons for your problem. Firstly, the "F" drive is your iPod Shuffle, but your Computer can't access it. Your Computer probably displays it as F: Removable Drive. Look at the blue bar at the bottom right of your Computer screen, near where the clock is. You should see a green arrow pointing slightly downwards. Move your mouse arrow on to it, and you should see the words 'Safely Remove Hardware' pop up there. Right - click the green arrow, and then left - click the words 'Safely Remove Hardware'. You should now see a window box with some USB information about you iPod Shuffle. Click the Troubleshooter, to see if it's working properly, following the relevant steps. By this point, if you're shouting at the screen asking "WHERE THE HELL IS THE GREEN ARROW ?", it's because something is still preventing your Computer from accessing the "F" drive. This usually means that either your iPod has been security-protected, which means it will only work on your friend's Computer, or the USB port you've been using is faulty. Try using a different USB port, to see if that corrects the problem. Another possibility is that the files on your iPod Shuffle are corrupted, in which case, try using it in your friend's Computer instead. Scan it for any viruses as soon as you can access the files on it, with AVG 7.5 Free Ed. You can get it free from www.filehipppo.com , You don't say if you got the iPod Shuffle from your friend, or just the i-Tunes software, but if the iPod works on his Computer, then the problem is either something related to your iPod Shuffle, or your Computer. Also, maybe you have a Virus or Spyware on your Computer. Get AVG 7.5 Free Edition and Spybot - Search and Destroy 1.6 from www.filehippo.com . Run a full Anti - Virus scan on your Computer, but don't uninstall the Anti-Virus program you already have, unless it's a McAfee or a Norton product. Make sure you download all the updates for AVG 7.5 Free Edition before you scan your computer, and ignore all requests to register it, as it's not neccessary. After you've done that, download Spybot - Search and Destroy 1.6, update it, and then scan your computer for spyware. You'd be surprised just how damaging spyware can be to your computer, if it's left for long enough. Anyway, i hope some of this helps you.

I'm betting when you're doing this, the Shuffle is plugged into the computer, right? Unplug it, and try installing iTunes again.

Try unplugging and plugging it back in, this happens to every ipod user once in a while. Try plugging it in a different USB port. Let me know how it goes.
