IPod connection bugs

I installed an external drive. Ipod normally connects to E:, was replaced by the external drive. When I plugged my iPod after this, it asks for a reformat. Also, it somehow managed to uninstall my cardreader, set as F: G: H: I:. Even after changing back the drive names (setting the iPod as E: again) it doesn't work. Connecting the iPod won't even show itself as an external disk, only freeze the computer and deliver the error msg.

Problem might solve by a reformat. But I've used the iPod as an external disk and I have data that I don't want to loose.

Any idea?

Does my ipod work with windows vista home edition

Yes. Your ipod should be automatically recognised by Windows Vista as soon as you plug it in.

Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable provided.

If this is the first time you have connected your iPod Vista will automatically install the drivers and software required.

There was a slight bug at one stage with compatibility but this was fixed in 2007 with a patch from Microsoft.

Hope this helps.

Try to put your ipod touch into recovery mode and then restore it. possibly the firmware of your ipod touch has some bugs which is restring the external speaker to work out. this should fix your ipod touch probably.

Ipod music is gone, but still says it has stuff on it

If you do this through itunes, it should be okay. The trouble is everytime you want to update your ipod, you will need to connect it with itunes and itunes will need to have your existing library that you created for you ipod to perform a quick and troublefree update.

If you are going to get an external harddrive you will need to re-direct where itunes is saving your music and video files. Because itunes will be using your internal harddrive for the system files (that is where windows is), it will automatically save the music to your internal drive. I suggest reloding an updated version of itunes from here and when asked where to install it, redirect it from your external harddrive. This way the itunes music folder will be on your external harddrive.

Hope this helps

External hard drive and ipod

It really doesnt matter, you will just have to have the hard drive plugged in when you sync you ipod or want to listen to music with your ipod. The only thing i have to say about it is if the external hard drive is if its connected to your computer with a USB rather than a firewire, then it might be slower to load than if you keep it on an internal hard drive. But it will work and wont be very slow, just slower.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod

Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". This will completely reset your ipod, hopefully fixing any bugs or problems in it. also, you will lose all data saved on the ipod that isn't also backed up by itunes. Music, pictures, and video can be re-synced.
