Question about Apple Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have iPod connection problems after updating the software from Apple's website for iTunes and iPod shuffle. When I plug my iPod into the USB port sometimes the XP operating system dos not recognize it. Even when the shuffle is recognized it will disconnect when iTunes is in the process of loading music onto the shuffle. I have been through all of the debug steps on Apple's web site and have taken the shuffle to the Apple store (International Mall, Tampa) where they reset it and said it would now work. Not.

Log into the computer as an administrative user. Press Win+R to bring up the Run dialog, type regedt32 into the box and press Enter. In the left-hand pane, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
making sure the Class is highlighted. Select File -> Export...Make sure you know where this is being stored (by default in My Documents) because you may need to restore it later. Give it a name that makes sense to you such as 'Pre-iPod Fix.' It will automatically add the .reg extension. For the export range, we just want the selected branch (we are only going to change things in this branch so we can save disk space by only exporting this portion instead of the entire registry). Then click on Save.

Now, open up the Class branch and navigate to {4D36E980-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. In the right-hand pane, locate the key UpperFilters. If it exists, highlight it then press Delete.

Next, navigate to {4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} (this is still under Class). In the right-hand pane, locate the key LowerFilters. If it exists, highlight it then press Delete.

Exit the Registry Editor and restart your computer.

When I turn on my ipod shuffle & hit play it blinks green and orange several times and won't play


The Apple iPod shuffle is a digital music player that contains a single indicator light that relays information about the device's battery condition, computer connection and any errors the device is having. The indicator light is capable of blinking red, green or orange as well as displaying a steady red, green or orange light. The iPod Shuffle includes a Universal Serial Bus interface and buttons on the front of the device for controlling music files.

Blinking Orange A blinking orange light indicates the iPod Shuffle is receiving an update via iTunes to the device's internal components. The update could include a patch to repair an error the player encountered once before, an update to the player's file-saving software, or a combination of security, repair and software updates. Updates are free and automatically sent directly from Apple through iTunes to your iPod shuffle before a sync process starts. Disconnecting iPod Shuffle When the player's light is blinking orange, do not unplug the device from your computer's USB port this will stop the update process and possible corrupt the device's internal hard drive. Let the update process and sync process finish before clicking "Eject" within iTunes and removing the player. Disk Use Enabled If you use your iPod Shuffle as a flash drive and not as a music player, a blinking orange light means that the device is connected to your computer and ready to accept files. The "Disk Use" enabled setting is changeable within iTunes if you decide to use your iPod Shuffle for music storage instead of file storage. When set up as a flash drive, the iPod Shuffle is assigned a drive letter by your computer's operating system and the drive lets you "drag and drop" files to the device. b> Charging If your iPod shuffle's battery is completely depleted or low on charge, connect the player to your computer immediately for charging then leave it connected to receive any updates to the device's software and internal components. Its indicator light may or may not blink orange until after it is fully charged. If the battery is low on charge or completely depleted, you may receive an error stating that the iPod is corrupt or needs restoring, close the error message and let the device fully charge.

I can t play my ipod i just installed songs to it and it doesn t work when i tried to play it, it has no sounds, it's an ipod shuffle.


  • I THINK YOU SHOULD UP DATE YOUR SOFTWARE.To update and reinstall your iPod software, first download the latest version of iTunes.
  • Next, open the new version of iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.
  • Select your iPod in the source list and click "Check for Update" under the Settings tab. iTunes will check to see if your iPod needs to be updated and perform the update for you.
  • If this does not resolve the issue, try completely uninstalling iTunes and then reinstalling the latest version of iTunes

I Pod shuffle (2nd. generation) won't hold a charge


Hold in the play button for 10 seconds to reset. If that fails:
iPod shuffle Software Update and Restore
Apple periodically updates iPod shuffle software to improve performance or add
features. It is recommended that you update your iPod shuffle to use the latest
software.
You can choose either to update or to restore the iPod shuffle software.
If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
If you choose to restore, all songs and data are erased from your iPod shuffle. All
iPod shuffle settings are restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod shuffle with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software install file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the
iPod shuffle Update.
3 Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod shuffle software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t see that iPod shuffle is
connected to your computer, turn iPod shuffle off and turn it on again.

IPod shuffle 1st gen. Not Recognized By PC


Try a different USB port first. Here are some other suggestions:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer. iPod shuffle may
need to be recharged.
â Make sure you have installed the latest iTunes software from
www.apple.com/ipod/start.
â Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Make sure iPod shuffle is
firmly seated in the dock. Make sure the USB connector is oriented correctly. It can be
inserted only one way.
â iPod shuffle might need to be reset. Turn iPod shuffle off, wait five seconds, and then
turn it back on again.
â If there is no status light (or the status light is dimmed) and iPod shuffle doesn’t
appear in iTunes or the Finder, the battery may be completely discharged. Let
iPod shuffle charge for several minutes to see if it comes back to life.
â Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to doublecheck
the system requirements” on page 25.
â Try restarting your computer.
â If none of the previous suggestions solves the problem, you might need to restore
iPod software. See “Updating and Restoring iPod shuffle Software” on page 26.
â If restoring iPod shuffle doesn’t solve the problem, iPod shuffle may need to be
repaired. You can arrange for service on the iPod shuffle Service & Support website at
www.apple.com/support/ipodshuffle/service.
