Windows vista

There were several models made in the Classic format.
Early units had either Firewire or USB ports.
If would need an External CD Drive that plugs into the port on the player. Drivers would have to obtained from Apple at their web site and copied to a CD. Then a CD with the drivers would be inserted into a USB CD Drive and loaded on tot eh Player. The other solution is to Download the Drivers onto a computer, insert a FLASH Drive into the USB port on the computer, copy the drivers to the Flash Drive, and move the Flash drive over to the IPod's USB port. Copy the drivers or install from the Flash Drive.

ITunes freezes after 8.1 upgrade on Vista PC

Apple has made it harder and harder to use our ipods over the last upgrade especially.
I am running itune 8 on vista home basic and I have the same problem.
But since I repair ipods i put numerous ipods on this system and it doesn;t work that great with any of them.
although I have found one solution that really has helped with alot of connection issues and ipod crashing in vista. I installed a usb 2.0 card in my computer and only use it for my ipod cable and it has helped.
Most of the iPods and iPhones only will connect with a 2.o usb port anymore.
So if you have a usb 2.0 use it, if you need drivers get them and reinstall them in your computer to get the fast usb connection. it is still slow in itunes but it's much better.

as for iTunes 8 and why it crashes, well it is an apple product. the don;t care about the ipod, it's a throw away product for them. They want you to buy a new one. But in this day and age, they should give us a break and start making the products so they are user friendly. Thats why Mac has never really exploded. They are too expensive and they don;t support their products. Even the Geniuses at the genius bars in Apple store done know **** about their own products, they just give refubished ****.

Good luck and sorry for the Rant!!!

Formatted Ipod

Unistall ITunes and all IPod software off of your computer. Go to and download a new set and reinstall it.

Make sure your IPod isn't plugged into your computer while it is installing.

If you get BSOD after that tell me what the screen says.

What is the make and model of that computer.
