Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I had prevsiously had no problems plugging my ipod 4g into the front 2.0 usb port on my pc and was able to sync music using Itunes. Then all of a sudden (I think when XP Service Pack 3 installed on my pc) now my system goes to a black screen saying that a recent change in software/hardware has been made and the system needs to shut down to protect files.
If I plug the Ipod into the back usb ports the pc shuts down. If I plug my camera or phone into the front usb 2.0 port they work fine. I re-installed the drivers because at one point they weren't recognizing music cd's and that seems to have been fixed. I've clicked on properties for the USB's in device manager and they say they are working fine.
Uninstall service pack 3 and ignore it when it asks you to re install it. go to add remove programs and uninstall it. obviously it worked befor. that is the solution. you dont need sp3 anyway.
