Question about Audio Players & Recorders
For some reason about a month ago my computer stopped recognizing apple products that I plug into a usb port, but it will read every other thing like my mouse. When my ipod is plugged in to the computer, it will not charge but the computer makes a noise as if it recognized it. Also, when I plug it in it says apple device and has an exclamation point near it. I have tried troubleshooting and that doesn't tell me anything. I don't know why this would randomly start happening, but I think the day before it happened there was a windows update. I don't know but help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Do a system recovery to a date the system worked ok. The system recovery is in programs then click Accessories then under the tool menu.

Hi there! Often, when an iPod does this it just needs to be 'reset'. To do this, turn on the iPod, and then press and hold the center button and the top ('menu') button just above it. You'll have to hold these two down together for anywhere from 10 to 40 seconds. When you see the screen go dark, you can let go. At that point, you should see the Apple logo appear as the iPod reboots. Take this opportunity to reboot your computer... this might help out as well. When both the computer and iPod have rebooted, go ahead and plug the iPod in and see if you get a response from iTunes. I'm afraid this is not "the" solution, necessarily... there are a number of potential fixes for the issue you're describing, but this is the first thing that I would try. The next thing to try would be to go into your control panel, into the add/remove software program and completely uninstall iTunes. Then reinstall iTunes, reboot the computer, and try again. Best of luck!

After some time of messing with my daughter's--I desolderd the battery to clear the player--but doing that ,the player now show's up in windows everytime I plug it in. So I would say faulty battery.(Inside player)

put your ipod in disk mode by following these steps.
press and hold the Menu and Center buttons on the clickwheel. when you see the apple appear, switch your fingers to the center and play/pause buttons.
whena check mark appears plug it into you computer and it should detect and mount.
add music and have fun.
