Try restarting you PC, and if this fails, then you might need to get upgraded drivers for the usb port the old drivers could have gotten corrupted. Restarting the PC or rolling back the PC to a later time usually does the trick.

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

I have ipod nano 1st gen and my ipod wont detect by itunes even my explorer using USB 2.0, i have firewire port wall charger when i try to plug it it charge but idont know if it will work to computer cause...


There might be a few issues here:

1. Your ipod software needs to be updated
2. Your usb cord is bad
3. Your usb port is not working properly

Either find someone that has a firewire port and update it via itunes, or use someone elses computer to update your ipod's software.

Determining the ipod problem


If the iPod needs to be updated, try installing the update onto the computer without the iPod attached. Once its finished install the iPod into the computer as normal. It should detect the download automatically.
If the iPod won't charge via USB link cord onto the computer, try buying the adaptor plug socket which you can use without the computer. At least then you'll get a chance to see if the iPod can hold a reasonable charge.
I had a similar problem at Xmas there with a new iPod classic. Eventually I had it replaced as it was found to have problems with the hard disk on the iPod itself. Good luck!

My itunes won't detect my ipod nano 4gb


well sometimes what people do is that they plug in the usb cable before the computer is on and it wont recognize the ipod. You have to turn off the computer and wait till it is on and then plug it in.
