My ipod touch shows up as a camera and ive tried site user ekse's solution but whn i go to upload driver i cant find any thing other than my ipod as a camera


ok you can try this method : 1. First off you need to have iTunes installed and the ipod touch plugged in and recognized as 'something' e.g. digital camera (it shouldn't really matter what it's recognized as, but it needs to be found by windows).
2. Search for usbaapl in the C:\WINDOWS system folder: o open windows explorer (e.g. Right-click Start and then click 'explore') o right-click the WINDOWS folder and select 'Search'). o type in usbaapl and hit Search - try to ignore the dog! You should find the driver info in a sub folder of C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B Remember that location (either leave the search box open or copy the folder name into note pad - you'll need it later) If you don't find usbaapl.sys, usbaapl.inf etc. then your drivers have not been installed with the iTunes install and you'll have to reinstall iTunes.

3. Locate the ipod-camera device: o Open the device manager, e.g. using Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager o Look for a device called 'ipod' - if your ipod shows up as 'digital camera' it will be under something like 'imaging devices'.
4. Update the driver: o Right click the 'ipod-camera' in device manager and click on 'Update Driver' - the Hardware Update Wizard will open. o Check the 'Install from a list or specific location' then click 'Next' o Check 'Search for the best driver in these locations'. Un-check 'Search removable media' and check 'Include this location in the search'. In the text box below type (or better copy and paste) the folder containing the ipod driver information found in step 1 (in the example above it was C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B), then click Next. You should now see something like 'Apple ipod device driver' or so. Continue installing that device. Once the driver has been installed the ipod will come to life and iTunes (if you have it open) will show it.

P.S.:if you didn't find the updated drive in STEP1 you can try to find the updated drive file in C:\windows\system32\drivestore\FileRepository\usbappl.inf

Tip

Ipod touch / or other ipod shows up as camera


I just fixed this problem in a live chat few days ago.

You need to open device manager.
right click my computer, select manage, on the left side find device manager.

Find the ipod from the list, click on "update driver", don't look online,

Then select install from list.

then

You should find 2 or more drivers in this part, select the ipod USB driver name may be different, just don't select the still camera that it is now using.

if it still installs the still camera driver for it

open up search

type in usbaapl

note where that driver is stored.
for example at c:\program files\apple\itunes\ (I just made that up its probably in another folder that's why we are Searching for it with the search tool)

Then go to device manager select the ipod, update driver, manually(as above), have disk - go to the address where the usbaapl is stored and click ok. it should find the driver, continue, it should install the driver, and you are done.

Thanks,
Ekse

My ipod touch only showed up as a camera ive tried everything to fix it ive even tried to go in to manage my computer selected my ipod (listed as camera) and went to update driver but when i went throught...


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.

You can download iTunes here.

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.

Hook the ipod 8gb to computer and it shows as camera. also does not recognize as a device in itunes anymore


You will need to restart the Apple Mobile Device service. If you use Windows. Then:
goto start>run type services.msc find Apple Mobile Device, double-click it, set start up type to automatic and press start. Your ipod should be visible now, if not reboot your computer

Ipod keep freezing with only the apple showing on screen...wont do anything else...says port is not found


1) Start iTunes.

2) Power the device on by holding the sleep/wake and home button for about 10 seconds. Release the sleep/wake button, but keep holding the home button.


3) If you did it correctly, the device will be showing either a connect to itunes screen (recovery mode) or a black screen (DFU mode) We are trying for DFU mode here, but recovery may work too. Connect the ipod to your computer. iTunes will tell you that it has detected an iPhone or iPod touch in recovery mode.


4) If you see the iTunes icon and cable on your iPhone, your device is not in DFU mode, but in recovery mode. Your device's screen will be black when you are in DFU mode. I always have to try this several times so succeed.

5) Connect your device back to your Pc/Mac and press SHIFT+CLICK (pc) or COMMAND+ CLICK on the restore button.

6) Select the firmware version you'd like to install from your computer. You can google for ipod touch firmare to download the file, or just let it update right from apple.
7) Wait for a couple of minutes and your iPhone/iPod will be as new.

My windows dosent reconize my ipod touch. when i plug it into my usb port it shows scanner and camera wizard


That means, your computer recognizes your iPod. But if what you're saying is that, iTunes doesn't open when you plug your iPod touch to the computer, it really won't, unless you selected the option "Automatically sync when this iPod touch is connected" from Device window in iTunes.

Also, make sure first that you have the latest iTunes installed in your computer. You can download it here. If iTunes is alreaady installed in your computer, simply open it and you'll find your iPod touch on the side column under Devices.
