Ipod will not sync

You want to be sure that the computer is recognizing the iPod. Apart from iTunes, when you plug in the iPod to the USB port, it should show up in My Computer as a device. If it does not, try a different cable or different USB port on the computer. Until the iPod is "seen" in Windows, it will not be able to communicate with iTunes.
Hope this helps

Computer Won't Recognize Device

If your trying to connect a device via usb to your computer and it isn't being recognized; The best thing to do is go the manufacture's website of the device, look under download or support tab and download the latest version of the driver

The driver is what lets the computer recognize the device.

Download the driver, then double-click on the file so it will install itself on your computer. Once the driver is installed, restart pc, turn on your device and finally connect your cable.

Iphone not recognized when attached with usb connnection

Try using different usb ports on your computer. If it doesn't work then try hooking up your iphone to another computer. If it still isn't being recognized then try a different IPHONE USB cable.
If your Iphone still can't be recognized after all of this then read the article at the link below.

Also try restoring your iphone to factory defaults if necessary. This is a last resort. If your iphone still won't get recognized by the computer then it could be the connection on the Iphone is defective and in that case replacing the phone is the only option.

Usb ports not recognizing pen drive, external drive, ipods or iphones but 2 out of 3 usb ports will charge the ipod and iphone. please help!! I've tried unplugging, removing battery, device manager says...

Generally USB ports are part of the motherboard so you will not be able to replace just the USB ports. you can try to uninstall the USB controllers in device manager then reboot your computer. they should automatically get reinstalled. also try booting to safemode and check if it will recognize your USB devices.

*if you get a pop up for found new hardware when you plug in any of your USB devices then it would usually indicate that the hardware is working fine and the problem is with your OS
