    regular motherboard...I think.

    Sorry, I am not that great with computers.

    But this has happened before but it usually worked after about a day. This time it's been about two or three.

    Sounds to me like maybe bad USB drivers. Whats your system? Laptop model or motherboard model will help me help you.

I would try a reinstall of itunes. Or go into your preferences and delete it from your devices list and let it reconnect. You need to be using the newest version of itunes also. Hope that helped.

My son updated my 2g ipod touch on his (older?) computer. It is frozen now & won't go past a screen w/the itunes symbol & the usb plug. It will not restore. I have uninstalled & reinstalled...


  • This isn't an iTunes problem. While the iPod is displaying this logo, you need to plug it in to a computer that has iTunes open beforehand.
  • Try using another computer with iTunes installed, or another USB cable for the iPod. Try to restart by holding the sleep and home buttons for about 10 seconds.
  • If this still doesn't work, take the iPod to your local Apple store, where they can check for any hardware problems that may have occurred.

The itunes doesn't recognize my ipod classic


you restored your ipod correct? (just the music is erased) not format ? (ipod is zapped)....ok..lets play with the restore part...plug up ipod to pc....do not open itunes (close it, x it out) ...go to my computer you should see a new drive on it (ipod)....double click ipod and copy the software (from ipod) it should be 4 folders and hidden files too...paste it to a temp folder on the pc....now right click ipod drive and format it (yes this will erase everything on it)...once format is completed reinstall the software from the temp folder back to ipod......now this is finish....update itunes to the newest version (even if u have it already overwrite it)....you now have a brand new ipod...........

in the beginning i ask if you restored or formatted (if you had formatted, you would not find nor see any software)......you would be better off asking a friend/family if they have the same ipod can you copy just the software (you would copy their software to a temp file, then on to yours same as above) .........i hope this works out for u.....feel free to rate the help

Itunes won't recognize my ipod.


Trying restarting your iPod (by holding down the menu and center button at the same time until you get the Apple logo), then plugging it back into the computer. iTunes should recognize it then. I had the same problem recently and that solved it.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


I think what needs to happen is you need to restore.

Hold down the sleep and home buttons until you see the apple logo. As soon as that comes up, let go of the sleep button, but keep the home button held down.

A little picture saying you need to plug your iPod in iTunes should appear after a couple seconds. Let go of home and plug your iPod into the computer now.

When iTunes says you need to restore, do so. It will take some time to restore the iPod after you have given iTunes the command to do so.

Get a snack, and a drink... You might be here for a little while.

Try it, I wrote it for a Itouch / iphone generally but basicly if its a driver issue that should solve it.

If not, can you post me the status of the ipod from the device manager?
