Hmm make sure that the cord is pushed in all the way. it may get rather annoying so just keep trying and trying and trying. i am 99% sure its not being pushed in all way.

    hmmm well thats weird but you never know. and you would get the error message if it doesnt clip in all the way. it could hook in and only be partially hooked in.

I'm trying to sync an apple ipod shuffle 4th generation to my windows xp pc. The famous USB device not recognized thing pops up. What do i need to do so i can use and sync my ipod.


Shutdown Windows.
Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC power cord.
Reconnect the AC power cord.
Restart the PC.
This will eliminate many "intermittent" problems.

Now, connect some other USB device (mouse? keyboard? memory-stick?) into the USB port, to confirm that the USB port is working, at least for some USB device.

Now, connect the iPod to one of the USB ports.
If it is not recognized, connect the iPod to a different USB port.

This should work.

My son's ipod touch 3g 8gig is getting this error message on all three of my XP computers: USB device not recognized. Please help my 13yr old son, he bought it a year and two months ago. Apple told him to...


Could be a lot of things, did you follow all of the steps in the Apple iPod troubleshooting assistant:
http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1369

Also, dust out the iPod connector with compressed air, make sure there is no lint in there.

How do i sync ipod with computer or laptop as i have now been trying for 3 hours with no success


Hi,

How to Sync an Ipod to Your Computer


Things You'll Need:

* IPod
* IPod USB that came with iPod
* Computer
* ITunes
* Mouse

So, you've bought an iPod and are super excited about putting your music on it so you can listen on the go, but you don't know how to start. First you have to figure out how to get your songs to your iPod, then you can listen to your heart's content.

This How To will tell you how you can get moving to the beats sooner than later.

Be sure your iPod is not on "hold". Move the bar at the top of the iPod from hold (at right) to manage or release (at left)

Press the center button on your iPod to turn the iPod on

Connect the flatter, wider connecting piece to the opening on the bottom of your iPod (This may have a minus sign on it)

Connect the USB side of the cord (this piece has what looks like a cactus on it) to the USB port in your computer

ITunes will automatically open. Click on the image of your iPod (at left). This will open your settings for whenever you connect your iPod to the computer.

Initially, it may be easiest to let it automatically update your iPod. A screen will come up to ask you if you would like to automatically sync your iPod. Click "YES".

ITunes will do the rest. The top window will show the progress of the data transfer.
DO NOT disconnect your iPod.

Once the window says "Update Complete", eject your iPod to safely remove it from the computer by dragging the image or icon of the ipod on your computer to the trash (which will change into an eject symbol), or clicking on the eject symbol next to the iPod icon (at left).

Disconnect the cord from the computer and iPod

Listen to your music



Tips & Warnings

These instructions are most useful if you have already installed iTunes and charged you iPod prior to connecting it to your computer.

Do not disconnect your iPod until it says "iPod Update Complete" at the top of the iTunes screen.


Also

I faced the same problem. In fact, you can use an ipod to computer transfer program to help.I personally use Cucusoft iPhone/iTouch/iPod to Computer Transfer.It helps me to transfer my songs/videos/photos/playlists etc from ipod to my new computer directly and safely.It works well for me,you can give it a try.
Free download it at: dvd-video-soft.com/ipodconver...

It even has step-by-step guide on the whole process.

thanks for using fixya...

I am trying to hook my ipod to my computer when i do it keeps coming up with.. "Your apple ipod driver can perform faster if it is plugged into a hi-speed port.. what does that mean


It means that the iPod is connecting to a USB 1.1 port, which is about 1/4 the speed of a USB 2.0 port.

Are you plugging the iPod directly into a USB port on the computer, or are you going through a USB hub or extension cord?

Try connecting directly to one of the ports on the computer and see if the message goes away.
As a bonus, you'll sync 4 times as fast.

My computer isnt recognising my white ipod cable to download from computer to ipod when i insert the white cable the computer doesnt register that its there and nothing happens on my ipod screen


First, Make sure the cord is plugged in all the way on the ipod and computer.  Also, you gots ta have itunes open so it will sync with the ipod.  Unplug the cord and try again.  Try the cord out on your friends or relatives ipod to see if you got a faulty cord.  If you got a bad cord, then throw it out and get you a new one. If the above don't works for ya then, unplug the cable.  Backup your itunes music. uninstall itunes.  Re-install the same version of itunes.  Open itunes and plug your ipod in making sure the connections are firm.  If that don't do it for ya, then your fu.k.d and need to take the thing back to the store for even exchange if your within your 30 day window or back to the Apple store if your within your 1 year window.  Note that Apple will reject you if you exposed this thing to liquids or dropped the thing.

I have bought a brand new ipod touch, installed itunes and my ipod will not load. Just has a picture of the usb line and the itunes signal. Tried reistalling and restarting computer. Help!


This picture means you need to sync the new ipod with your computer.  Meaning they got to get close and acquainted. 
Restart your computer.  Open up itunes and wait for it to load.  Then take the USB sync cord and connect one end to the ipod and the other end to the USB port on your computer.  Click set up new ipod and type in a name you want to use.  Follow the on screen instructions and don't disconnect the ipod until your computer says its done and its safe to disconnect.

Apple Ipod isnt recognized on computer


You can only sync one ipod with one computer so if you put music on it already it will only work with the original computer you synced it with. Same with ANY ipod.
