Hi there,

you must use it through itunes. This is the music/ipod management software.

You can download the latest version at www.apple.com/itunes.

Hope this helps.

Nathan.

My ipod touch shows up as a camera and ive tried site user ekse's solution but whn i go to upload driver i cant find any thing other than my ipod as a camera


ok you can try this method : 1. First off you need to have iTunes installed and the ipod touch plugged in and recognized as 'something' e.g. digital camera (it shouldn't really matter what it's recognized as, but it needs to be found by windows).
2. Search for usbaapl in the C:\WINDOWS system folder: o open windows explorer (e.g. Right-click Start and then click 'explore') o right-click the WINDOWS folder and select 'Search'). o type in usbaapl and hit Search - try to ignore the dog! You should find the driver info in a sub folder of C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B Remember that location (either leave the search box open or copy the folder name into note pad - you'll need it later) If you don't find usbaapl.sys, usbaapl.inf etc. then your drivers have not been installed with the iTunes install and you'll have to reinstall iTunes.

3. Locate the ipod-camera device: o Open the device manager, e.g. using Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager o Look for a device called 'ipod' - if your ipod shows up as 'digital camera' it will be under something like 'imaging devices'.
4. Update the driver: o Right click the 'ipod-camera' in device manager and click on 'Update Driver' - the Hardware Update Wizard will open. o Check the 'Install from a list or specific location' then click 'Next' o Check 'Search for the best driver in these locations'. Un-check 'Search removable media' and check 'Include this location in the search'. In the text box below type (or better copy and paste) the folder containing the ipod driver information found in step 1 (in the example above it was C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B), then click Next. You should now see something like 'Apple ipod device driver' or so. Continue installing that device. Once the driver has been installed the ipod will come to life and iTunes (if you have it open) will show it.

P.S.:if you didn't find the updated drive in STEP1 you can try to find the updated drive file in C:\windows\system32\drivestore\FileRepository\usbappl.inf

Tip

Ipod touch / or other ipod shows up as camera


I just fixed this problem in a live chat few days ago.

You need to open device manager.
right click my computer, select manage, on the left side find device manager.

Find the ipod from the list, click on "update driver", don't look online,


b9ed725.jpg

Then select install from list.
d3a3a5a.jpg

then
93bfa65.jpg

You should find 2 or more drivers in this part, select the ipod USB driver name may be different, just don't select the still camera that it is now using.

if it still installs the still camera driver for it

open up search

type in usbaapl

note where that driver is stored.
for example at c:\program files\apple\itunes\ (I just made that up its probably in another folder that's why we are Searching for it with the search tool)

Then go to device manager select the ipod, update driver, manually(as above), have disk - go to the address where the usbaapl is stored and click ok. it should find the driver, continue, it should install the driver, and you are done.

Thanks,
Ekse

My ipod touch only showed up as a camera ive tried everything to fix it ive even tried to go in to manage my computer selected my ipod (listed as camera) and went to update driver but when i went throught...


Apple media products such as the iPod Touch require the use of iTunes for managing media. Unfortunately, you cannot plug the iPod into the computer and simply copy media to or from it. You will have to install iTunes and import your media, then sync the iPod.

You can download iTunes here.

Once you have installed iTunes, open the program and connect your iPod. You will see it listed in the left pane. You will find support for iTunes and iPod on Apple's website. They have some very well-written support articles and videos that explain most of what you need to know to get started.

My ipod touch still isnt recongnised by my computer as an ipod, it comes up as a camera. ive tried reinstalling itunes, updating the driver and it still wont work. any more suggestions?


Your computer will only recognize your iPod as a camera, because its supposed to.
  1. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod.
  2. Scroll down on the left side, you should see your iPod there.
  3. If you do not, then consult the Apple Store.

Cant get pics from computer on ipod touch


Connect your iPod to your computer as you normally would with the USB cable. Step 2 Open iTunes if you don?t have it open on your computer already. You will be able to access photo options from here. Step 3 Choose ?Preferences? from the iTunes menu. This will pop up a tab where you will be able to complete step 4. Step 4 Click on the iPod tab in the screen that will open up after completing step 3. Step 5 Select the ?Photos? tab in the ?iPod? pane you chose in step 4. Step 6 Choose the ?Synchronize Photos From? checkbox and select either "iPhoto," "Choose Folder" or "Pictures" (as in your pictures folder) from the pop-up menu. try this and see if it helps

Step 1 Connect your iPod Touch to the computer you usually sync it with. When you disconnect your iPod, it should now be unlocked.
  • Step 2 If Step 1 does not work, you have to restore your iPod Touch. Be advised that restoring your iPod Touch returns it to the original factory settings. This means that all your songs and files will be deleted and lost. You can resync your files to your iPod from iTunes once you have finished restoration. Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes before proceeding.
  • Step 3 In the left navigation panel in iTunes, select your iPod under the "Devices" section. Click the "Summary" tab and select "Restore."
  • Step 4 When iTunes prompts you about backing up your data, click "Back Up." In the following window, click "Restore."
  • Step 5 After the restore process completes, you will see the Apple logo on the screen of your iPod. Leave your iPod connected to your computer until it shows up again on the iTunes navigation panel.
  • Step 6 Your iPod touch is now unlocked. In iTunes you will be able to setup your iPod. Select the backup you made in the drop-down menu to restore your data files. Click "Continue" to finish the restoration.

    Ipod not getting connected to itunes nor getting charged, and please recommend which ipod converter to download. Thank you in advance my ipod is not charged, when connected to a computer


    hello!

    if your IPod touch is not connected to itunes, please try the ff:

    Check the iPod touch Display
    -- When you connect iPod touch to your computer, the iPod touch should display an image or message on the display

    -- If you do not see any image, check some basic troubleshooting here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1737
    -- If you see a message on the screen, this indicates that the iPod touch does not have sufficient battery charge to operate and will need to be charged for several minutes before it can be recognized in iTunes.

    Verify Windows PC System Requirements

    --iPod touch requires iTunes 7.4 or later
    Check USB Connections

    -- iPod touch requires USB 2.0 to function properly
    -- Try connecting iPod touch to a different USB port, preferably a port that is built-in to the computer instead of an external USB hub. Connecting iPod touch to your keyboard's USB ports is not recommended.

    Restart your PC

    -- In some cases, your computer's USB ports may become temporarily disabled or you may experience other software related issues. Restarting your PC is an easy troubleshooting step that may resolve this issue.

    Verify iPod touch Driver/Service Installation

    -- iPod touch requires two important pieces of software to operate properly on Windows. First, the driver must be installed; for iPod touch the driver is USBAAPL.SYS. Second, Apple Mobile Device Support must be installed as a Windows Service.
