How can you go to microsoft updates if you cannot connect to the internet via wireless or directly connected to the modem as these are the only two ways you can get internet. So, do you have internet? If you do go to this website to download Service Pack 3, as this is the newest Service Pack, here is the link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsxp/sp3/default.mspx . Hole I helped.

I have a 5th generation iPod Nano. I've had it less than one year, and now whenever I plug it into my computer with the USB cord that came with it, my computer says "USB device not recognized" and that the...


  • Check system requirements. - iPod nano (5th generation) requires the following minimum versions of Windows: either Windows XP (Service Pack 3 or later), Vista or Windows 7. If you have one of these versions of Windows, verify that Windows is fully up to date by downloading and installing software updates from Microsoft. If you have Windows XP with Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows XP Service Pack 2, download and install Service Pack 3 using Windows Update.

  • iTunes online? - Confirm that iTunes has been downloaded and installed.

  • AMDS online? - iPod nano requires Apple Mobile Device Support (AMDS), which should be automatically installed with iTunes. To verify whether it is installed, click Start > Control Panel. Open the Add or Remove Programs control panel and verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is visible in the list of currently installed programs. If it is not, remove and reinstall iTunes.

  • Check USB connection. - Disconnect all USB devices from the system with the exception of the iPod nano and any USB keyboard and mouse. Then restart your computer. Verify that you are using a high-powered USB 2.0 port. Test with an alternate iPod USB cable if one is available.

  • AMDS - Re-verify that AMDS is running and installed.

  • iTunes usage - Remove and reinstall iTunes.
hope this helps

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?


To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

Itunes 8 won't open up


It is recommended to disable the anti-virus during the download. Simply because there are so many different anti-virus software versions available and they can (and sometimes have) caused iTunes to not download correctly if at all.
Your OS is your Operating System. IE: windows xp 2002 If you do not know what service pack you are running you can check it by opening your start menu and right clicking on My Computer. When the drop down appears, click on Properties. Here you will see
System:
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 (SERVICE PACK SHOULD BE LISTED HERE)
if its not service pack three then you need to update your operating system.
You can do that by clicking on the Automatic Updates tab. Make sure that Turn off Automatic Updates is NOT selected. I prefer the middle option of letting me pick which updates to install or not install personally.
I would do the check on your OS before uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes for sure though. Let me know how it goes :)

Can't sync ipod touch


If you haven't already, Uninstall your itunes and download a clean version.
install the clean version of itunes and try your ipod again.
you can get a clean version at www.apple.com/itunes/

It appears your install is corrupt.
also have you updated your touch recently.
if it is jailbroken you should be able to update it to a newer version.
If your version is to old, it maynot be compatible with the newer versions of itunes.
They are constantly trying to thwart the jailbreak and unlocked ipod and iphones.

Check your version and update to something newer if the re-install of itunes doesn't help.

It appears that you are using Windows 98 as your operating system, if this is the case it is not compatible with the newer Ipod software. The new Ipod's require at least Windows XP service pack 2, Vista, or newest Mac software. Here is a link to Apple's website so you can check the system requirements in the support section. http://www.apple.com/support/

Conecting withmy laptop


Download the latest version of itunes onto your pc from here
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ it is free. This will let you load music and videos for your ipod then sync your ipod, and let your view your music vids etc,,, using itunes.

If you do not want to lose anything from your ipod that you have already saved then click on the link below and download the program. It will export your ipod data into itunes, so you will not lose anything you already have on there. Once you have created a library in itunes you only need to plug in your ipod and it will automatically update your ipod using the playlist you created.
