Re: ipod - The drivers for this device are not installed.
Download the latest driver from the Samsung's Website and follow the instructions on how to force install it:
1. Look for the icon named "Computer" or "My Computer" and right click on it and select
properties, this will open a window named "System Properties". 2. In the system properties windows click on the tab named "Hardware", and Select "Device Manager". 3. On this window you will see all the devices installed on your computer, look for the device not working properly (printer, dvd rom, keyboard, camera, mp3 player, etc), if there is a bigger problem, more likely you will see a cross by it, or an alert stating there is an issue with it. 4. Right click on the device you where having problems with and select uninstall, it will give you a confirmation, press OK 5. Once the device disappeared from the list, click on the menu bar icon that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass this will cause for the system to scan for any devices not registered and will force the re installation of the device.

Apple media products such as the iPod Touch require the use of iTunes for managing media. Unfortunately, you cannot plug the iPod into the computer and simply copy media to or from it. You will have to install iTunes and import your media, then sync the iPod.
Once you have installed iTunes, open the program and connect your iPod. You will see it listed in the left pane. You will find support for iTunes and iPod on Apple's website. They have some very well-written support articles and videos that explain most of what you need to know to get started.
Hi, your ipod displaying data and not playing might be because you did not transfer the music properly or the format of the music does not play on an ipod.
You will need a converter to help you convert songs into an ipod format. Download from the below link:
You can follow the instruction below to know how to transfer music into an ipod.::
Most common problem for new ipod user is how to put music onto ipod. So I created this ipod tips to solve this problem. Windows media player is not able to upload songs to ipod. You must use Apple iTunes to get music onto your iPod. Windows Media Player can see the iPod as a hard disk. But not able to copy upload music from pc to ipod.
The steps to put music onto an Apple iPod with itune. When you plug ipod to your pc first time through USB, you might get this pop up message. If you have already installed itune .
You need to restart your computer to install ipod and then the next time you start up, your iPod will not generate any messages of this nature. You need to install itune on your computer if you have not installed itune. You can simply go to apple.com/itunes to download the latest version. It also comes with ipod CD. The next step is to launch the iTunes program. And it will recognize the ipod that you have plugged in
It shows one message to give name to ipod, You can stick with the default name for your device or give name to ipod. I also uncheck "automatically update music" because I like to control what happens to my iPod manually. When you're done with this configuration step, click "Next" : register your iPod, or just click "Finish".
Now, finally, you can see iTunes and also your ipod inside your itune: Click on whatever name you've given to your own iPod, and you'll see your music list, which is completely blank:
Now click on the "Library" link on the left column and you'll see what albums or music you've copied into your iTunes library. Or click on the "Browse" button on the top right (it looks like an all-seeing eye) and a new panel will show up with lists of songs, artists and albums.
Now select the song you want to put on to your ipod. then dragging and dropping that onto the name of the iPod on the left side panel of your itune. Now your song are copied to ipod.
Most times, people often make the mistake of copying music files direct to the memory of the ipod device. If you do this, you might be able to detect the songs but your ipod will not play the songs as it may not recognize their format. For you to copy music files to your ipod, you would need to download the itunes program and install it to your computer. With this installed, you can connect your ipod to your computer and open itunes. It would be displayed under your itunes program and you can then copy your music files using itunes by dragging them and dropping them on the name of your ipod as it is shown on the left hand side of the itunes program. If after doing this, you still have the same problem, you can use your itunes to format the ipod and put the songs afresh. Hope this helps you? Please comment for more information
The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3 The reset utility will fix the following issues. 1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes 2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac. 3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista. Download the file for the program here: MAC http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html Windows http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html

Yes, for any Apple product, media has to be synced with iTunes. For Sansa you can just transfer it with your Windows Explorer, but not for iPod. Download iTunes, install, connect your iPod. The driver will be installed automatically. Also eject from iTunes and not from Windows.
You need to use itunes as your music management software and ipod management software. You can download the latest itunes version at www.apple.com/itunes.
From here you can purchase items through the itunes music store, or add your own music by adding files from your computer, or putting a cd in your computer and coppying it into itunes so you can put the songs on your ipod.
I am assuming you are a new user with your ipod.
You can play and view your music on the ipod only if you transfer the files thru itunes.
You can go to the apple website or download.com and download itunes.
After downloading it.Install the software and add your music onto your ipod through itunes.
Now your ipod will recognise all the songs you add.
IT WILL WORK.HAVE FUN.

This might be something as simple as the order inwhich you do things. 1. make sure Itunes is installed first. This should give you all the drivers you need. 2. Run Itunes. 3. Then hook up the ipod. (In order for your computer to regonise it as a portiable player you have to run itunes first, other wise it is a hard drive and will be seen as one. 4. Give itunes a few minutes to discover the device. You may have to go under your windows and sya cync Ipod. 5. With in Itunes should be an ipod screen that shows up under the area the play lists show up, but above the coustom play lists and below the itunes store. 6. click on this window and you should see your ipod and be able to sync it with all your music and more.
