My ipod wont show up on the bar when i plug it in the itunes

Sometimes your iPod fails to display in iTunes, which will keep you from being able to transfer songs from your computer to your iPod. If this happens, there are a number of steps you can take to resolve the issue.
Is it the iPod? Your iPod could fail to show in iTunes for a variety of reasons and this issue can be resolved by something as simple as rebooting your iPod. To reboot your iPod, first lay it on a flat surface. Using your thumb and index finger, press the play and menu button at the same time. If done correctly, your iPod screen will go blank and then you'll see the Apple logo. Is it the USB cable? Your iPod could fail to show in iTunes if you are using a defective USB cable. Try connecting your iPod to another computer that has iTunes installed using the same USB cable. If iPod again fails to show in iTunes, replace the USB cable. Is it my computer? One of the most common reasons your iPod doesn't show in iTunes is because your computer doesn't recognize your iPod is connected. Troubleshooting your computer/iPod connection Disconnect your iPod from the computer and reconnect. If your iPod still doesn't appear in iTunes, disconnect your iPod and reboot your machine. Once your computer has restarted, reconnect the iPod. Is it iTunes? Your iPod could be fail to display in iTunes if there is a issue with your iTunes program. If there is a problem with iTunes you can try updating the software to the most recent version. If that doesn't resolve your problem, re-install iTunes. b> b> b> iPod Won't Connect to iTunes b> Apple's iTunes software contains mechanisms specially designed to sync with your iPod, allowing you to transfer music, videos and other media from your computer. If you find that iTunes does not recognize or allow you to access your iPod, then you cannot perform some of the device's most fundamental functions. Fortunately you can often resolve this problem without expensive maintenance, simply by doing a bit of troubleshooting and determining the cause of your connectivity problem.

Try resetting your iPod. Apple recommends this as a first step in troubleshooting an iPod not appearing in iTunes, since a quick reset will often restore functionality. If you use a click wheel iPod, hold down the "Menu" and center buttons until the Apple logo appears on your screen. For the iPod Touch, hold your "Home" button and "Sleep" button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Charge your iPod battery. If your battery has absolutely no power left, your iPod will often remain unresponsive even when plugged into iTunes. Try charging for three to four hours and then try connecting again. Plug your iPod into your computer using a different USB port. Sometimes a failed connection can mean you have a faulty USB port, so try plugging your USB cable into a different port and see if the iPod appears in iTunes. Verify that you have the latest version of iTunes. Visit the iTunes page and check to see the latest version available. If you do not know which version currently runs on your computer, click "About iTunes." For Mac users, this option will appear under 'iTunes" on your menu bar. For Windows users, the option will appear under "Help" on your menu bar. Download the latest version of iTunes if necessary. Reconfigure your iPod service. If running iTunes on a Windows computer, click "Start > My Computer > Manage," and select "Services and Applications." Under "Services," select "iPod Service" and click "Stop." Leave the window open and connect your iPod to your computer. When your iPod shows up on your computer, click "Start." Reinstall iTunes. If simply updating iTunes does not work, you may have defective software. Try removing the program from your computer and completely and reinstalling it.

I have an ipod shuffle. I need to know how to sync music from my itunes library to my ipod. When I plug the ipod in to my computer, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Dear ckrohn299,
First of all, do a backup of your iTunes Library by using the Apple guide:
After your backup has finished, start with the easiest fix by uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes. By following these instructions, you will only delete the application and not the music files themselves. To do this, click the Start menu, Settings, and Control Panel. Then double-click Add Or Remove Programs. Click to select iTunes from the list of installed software and then click the corresponding Change/Remove button. Click the Next button and then the OK button to confirm that you wish to uninstall iTunes. When prompted, select Yes, I Want To Restart My Computer Now and click the Finish button. After your computer restarts, browse the Program Files folder. Right-click the iTunes folder and click Delete. Next, double-click the iPod folder, right-click the Bin folder, and click Delete. Press WINDOWS-M to minimize all windows. Then right-click the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin. Click the Start menu, Shut Down, and Restart.
After your computer restarts, double-click the My Computer icon, the C: drive (or the drive on which Windows is installed), Documents And Settings, your username, and Local Settings. Right-click the Temp folder and click Delete. Download the latest version of iTunes ( and the iPod Software ( Double-click the downloaded iTunes file and follow any on-screen instructions to complete the installation. Then double-click the downloaded iPod Software and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you still see the iPod Service Error, click the Start menu and click Run. Type msconfig in the Open field and click OK. Click the General tab, the Selective Startup radio button, and deselect the Load Startup Items checkbox. Click the Startup tab and click the iTunesHelper checkbox. Click the Services tab and click the Hide All Microsoft Services checkbox at the bottom of the window. Deselect all checkboxes in the list except for iPod Service, click OK, and click Restart. If this does not resolve the problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes one more time.
Finally, if after following these steps, you still see the iPod Service Error, right-click My Computer, click Manage, and click Services And Applications in the left pane. Click iPod Service in the right pane, click the Action menu, and click Properties. Click the Stop button in the resulting dialog box. Click the Start menu, click Run, and type "C:\Program Files\iPod\bin\iPodService.exe" /service. Make sure you include the quotation marks when you type. Click the OK button. Then click the Start menu, Shut Down, and Restart.

Ipod nano not detected by windows and itunes

There are a couple of things you can try:

Make sure you have updated to the latest version of iTunes.

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
  • After resetting, try again to connect to the computer
How to restore your iPod: For Windows:

  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
These steps usually will fix the issue...I hope that helps!

I jus gotta new ipod nano 2gb, i plugged it into the comp and it shows apple sign then "do not disconnect". a auto play window opened and it appears in "my computer". i click on it and it shows three...

First, you should use itunes for you iPod. I know that there are other programs that can let you load music on it, but you should use iTune, Really.

1. You should first download iTunes. It is free.

2. Next. Load your music into iTunes. Do all of this BEFORE you plug your iPod into the computer.

3. Connect your iPod to the computer. Use a fast USB port. These are usually located on the back of the computer.

4. Your iPod should appear in the iTune pane on the left side. You should be able to see a set of 'tabs' that you can click. The first one is about your iPod.

5. At this point, you can click on the music tab to tell the computer to load what to load into the iPod. Click 'sync' to load your music.

6. When the syncing is complete, you will see that notice above in iTunes. Click the arrow next to the iPod picture in the iTunes pane to discharge the iPod. The iPod picture will disappear. Make sure that you also safely release the iPod in the task bar at the bottom of the computer. You will need to click on a green icon that looks like a plug and select 'safely remove storage device'. Wait until the computer tells you it is safe to disconnect it. Then disconnect.

Hope that helps.

Need driver for ipod nano for windows millenium

You will need to download the latest version of iTunes. It is free. When you have done that, load all of your music into iTunes. Then connect your iPod to the computer with the internet connected. You should be able to see your iPod on the left side of iTunes. You can then click the music tab to tell itunes what music to load into your iPod.

Be sure to click the arrow next to your iPod when the syncing is finished to release your iPod from itunes. Also click the green plug icon at the bottom right of your windows screen. If you cannot see the plug, click on the white arrow until you see the green plug. Click on it and you will see your ipod listed as a mass storage device and a message asking if you want to disconnect it. Click disconnect mass storage device and wait until you see a message saying ;safe to disconnect mass storage device. Done. Hope that helps.
