Reboot, plug your player in, open Device Manager, and remove the device that shows up representing your player (completely uninstall it). Reboot again, and plug in your player. It should be recognized now.

Ipod shuffle

IPod Shuffle is fully supported under Windows Vista. There previously were issues with that but since have been resolved.

It sounds like you may need to restore your IPOD per this article here:

Set your computer up so that you & your brother have different user accounts on your computer. This can be done via parental controls in windows Vista & xp (parental controls> create user). Once you do that, download the most recent itunes. You'll see itunes on both user accounts

Be sure to back up your music or you'll both have to create new libraries. When you sync your ipods, itunes will automatically recognizw which model ipod you have & update the software accordingly. I have my wife, both kids & I have all our ipods synced on 1 computer this way (Gen 3 30 gig, 2 gen 2 nanos, & a shuffle).

Hello Bluben,

Your Apple iPod should work just fine with Windows Vista providing you are using the latest version of Quicktime / iTunes.

30 gb ipod not connecting to computer.

If nobody has figured out this problem or if anybody else is having the same problem I have a solution that could possibly work. I had the same problem so I right clicked My Computer and went to Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, and then click on Device Manager. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus controllers look for anything that may have a yellow exclamation point. Mine said something like Apple Ipod Driver or something along those lines. Right click that and click Update Driver... Then click Next and it should update it for you and work fine. Hopefully this will help anybody that is having this problem.
