The problem is from ownership of the files. Go to control panel.then programs, then remove the programs in the following order: itunes quicktime apple software update apple mobile bonjour apple application support. Now comes the tricky bit. Go to each of the folders in the program directory in turn starting with itunes. Right click the folder and click delete. If it will not let you delete the folder then right click and go down to properties. Go to the security tab. Highlight yourself and give yourself full control. If it will not let you do this then go to advanced then owner and highlight yourself. Click on edit, highlight yourself.The important bit is to put a tick in replace owner on all subcontainers and objects. Click ok ok close all the windows and go back to the folder again. Right click and go down to properties and highlight yourself and give yourself full rights. apply ok. then when you right click on the folder you will be able to delete it. if not go to the subdirectories and do the above. Do this with all the apple related folders mentioned above in the program file folder and also the program data folder . clear all contents in the temp directories of program and program data folders. This takes some time but it does work. Restart your computer and reinstall itunes and itunes and quicktime will work . solved

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

Error (13) in itouch keeps showing when restoring, HELP!!!! how can i fix my itouch out of this freezed screen displaying a cd and usb port.....PLEASE!!!


From Apple Website 1. Restart your computer (yes, you have too)
2. plug in your ipod touch (it should have the usb cord and itunes picture on the screen)
3. open itunes.
4. itunes will recognize the ipod. just ignore the message, and then hold down the home and hold button (on the top) for about 10 seconds, and after you count to 10, release the top hold button, but still holding home.
5. itunes will pick up the ipod, and once it does, release home.
6. Now click restore, and everything should work fine.
(if problem persists, try turning off firewall, and close all other programs)

To see if you have the latest version of iTunes, open iTunes and:
Windows: Choose Help > Check for Updates Mac: Choose iTunes > Check for Updates

Restart your computer Simply restarting the computer can clear up certain issues that could prevent iPhone or iPod touch from being restored. After restarting, try restoring the device again in iTunes.
USB Troubleshooting Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a different USB port on your Mac or Windows PC. USB 2.0 ports that are built-in to the computer are preferred over a hub.

If those files are unusable, then try deleting them so iTunes can download a new copy of them. Creating a new user will also cause new .ipsw restore files to be downloaded in the new user.

As an added note, If running Microsoft Windows XP and the issue is resolved on another computer, but you continue to experience difficulties on your original computer, you may want to update or reinstall your Windows USB drivers and then try restoring iPhone or iPod touch again.
If none of these steps work you will need to contact either apple at

Or another service provider of your choosing to get the ipod touch serviced or replaced.

Does one have to have apple computer for ipod one touch


Are you going to (www.apple.com/itunes/download) to download the latest version of iTunes? Also I would suggest attempting the download with your firewall/anti-virus software disabled. As they can sometimes cause the itunes download to not complete or download with missing files. They are not viruses but sometimes the different softwares will think they are malicious. You do not have to own an apple computer to use an apple iPod. Just make sure that your Operating System on your PC is up to date an you should be good to go. If your not downloading iTunes version 8.1.1.10 then it's not the latest version. :)

When i try to sync my SA3025/37 with the songs that i have downloaded from Napster to my win media player10 as soon as the sync process starts i get an error message (win has encountered unknown problem)...


Hi,

Download & install the latest synching program.

Set your music files in the desired playback order by naming them in alphanumerical sequence such as 001_Drunken Monkey.mp3 followed by 002_Massachusetts.mp3 etc. prior to your transferring into the Digital Audio Player.

IMPORTANT: The player does not support the playback of copy protected (Digital Rights Management - DRM) music purchased from internet music stores.

You can download non copy protected music to the player via Windows Explorer

Hook up your player with the PC via the supplied USB cable.

Run Windows Explorer, and select the files to download from your music file source directory.

Drag and drop the selected files to the player, which is named as Philips in Windows Explorer.

Once the transfer process is complete, click on the removal icon on the task tray to stop and eject the player. When a message appears saying the USB device can now be safely removed from the system, click OK.

Unplug from the PC and enjoy the music on your player.

Upgrade the firmware

You can find the current Firmware version of your player in the settings menu under "Information".

Regularly check www.philips.com/support for new Firmware updates. If your firmware version is the same as the latest version posted on the support site then there is NO need to update the firmware.

However, if you do not have the latest version follows the steps below.

Connect the player to your PC.

Launch the Philips Device Manager at Start -> Programs -> Philips Digital Audio Player -> SA30XX -> Philips SA30XX Device Manager on your PC.

If you do not have this program installed yet, install it from the by-packed CD or download it from www.philips.com/support.

Make sure all other applications such as Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer that access the device are closed or else Device Manager will not recognize the device.

Make sure you are connected to the internet.

Click update, then follows on screen instruction to complete the firmware upgrade.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
