On connecting the itouch to my laptop via the USB it crashes

My daughter had an itouch for xmas, this was working via USB port fine for several days downloading from itunes and was charging ok. Then suddenly it decides that everytime it is connected to the USB it crashes the laptop and the blue death screen appears.
The computer and itouch appaer to work perfectly without each other connected, I have tried plugging other items such as cameras without issues.
I have also unistalled the USB root hubs and reinstalled which didn't work!
Why does it do this and how can I overcome this problem?

    my ipod crashes my laptop when i attach via usb. last time this happend i uninstalled itunes and redownloaded the program that didn't work this time

    I've found this problem too, only resolve I've found is getting my partner to restore the itouch on their computer and then I've reinstalled everything - it takes ages and I haven't found a way to restore the ipod on my computer, as it blue screens it the moment it is attached, so if you don't have a second computer I don't know how you would restore it. BUT what I have noticed is that it seems to happen only after I have saved a picture on the ipod, eg downloaded an email attachment, I've had it working fine for ages, even with pictures transferred from my computer, but the moment I (accidentally) had saved an item on the ipod, next time it was connected, it crashed. It seems to create itself a "saved items" folder in the pictures tab. As soon as I noticed it had done that, next time it crashed. If you can avoid saving pictures on it then you can avoid the crashes, I just forgot! Hope that's a help, or at least a bit more of the picture. Recently downloaded the updated software and hoped that might have fixed the problem, but it has just done it again.

My usb port on monitor isn't working. how can i fix this?


Hi,
The USB ports on the monitor will work only if you connect the monitor via a USB cable to your PC/Laptop's USB port. Sounds awkward. Doesn't it? There must be a USB cable with flat socket on one end and trapezium shape jack on one end. It should be in the box which the monitor came in. The USB ports in the monitor are just another extended USB ports for your PC/Laptop. If you can't find the cable mentioned above, it is the same cable you connect to a printer, scanner,........ In some cases you might need to install a driver which should also come along with monitor. Mostly you don't need to install.
Good luck.

Connected Canon MP610 to Apple Time capsule via USB. My Macbook pro prints wirelessly perfectly, as does my sons Vista Laptop, however my daughters vista laptop and my wifes XP laptop print black fine, but...


Hi richardhaley,
Isee that you are having issues with your Canon MP610 printer.
You mentioned that your printer is connected to an Apple Time capsule via USB and that it works fin on your Macbook and on your sons Vista Laptop but prints the colored shifted to the right on your daughter's Vista and wife's XP Laptop and this is connected via USB.
If I may ask have you tried printing wireless using your daughters Vista Laptop and you wife's XP Laptop to see if the colors are still gonna shifted to the right.
Also you mentioned the drive that the driver you are using is from bonjour but still you have the same problem.
Here is a link where you can download drivers specific for the versions of windows your daughter's Vista and your wife's XP would have, you will need to select exactly the OS operating system for the driver that you need also there is a software for each Operating system as well maybe you can download that as well for both system for you to be able to recalibrate the printer from the 2 machines.
I hope that this will help.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

It won't restore


I had the same issue several months ago. If you have admin rights on your computer, create another user and restore the ipod on the new user. Then you will have to go back and to your original user and update. However, you will need to check your USB port and make sure it is fast enough for the update. That is why it crashes when you try to update.

Wireless mouse doesn't work


This problem was happening on my system but i managed to fix it easily! What has happened is your itouch software has become corrupt so it will only recognise your keyboard thus the usb connection. You will need to download/install off disc onto your computer again but do NOT go to uninstall program manager on windows as it will not appear there because even though you can access the itouch configuration panel, the database is corrupt and the administrative system will not recognise this. Just download/install via disc and it will just install with no alerts unlike most programs which will recognise the program is already installed onto the system. Once the setup is 92% it will freeze for a second then the found new hardware window will appear on screen go through that process and your mouse is back to normal and your keyboard will work via itouch software.
(Please note that this will only work on windows)

Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Have exteranal usb card -


sounds like the daughter card may be partially disconnected from the main motherboard. The usb ports on this model are on a seprate daughter card, and connect using a small socket to the bottom of the main motherboard. If you can pull it all apart you will be able to easily re-seat this card. Another option is the daughter card is going bad, or the usb ports and or drivers are bad, but it sounds like the card is not properly seated.
