From what I understand, iTunes is not recognizing the iPod, because Windows does not recognize it. Choose to install the driver, set it to search for a driver in "C:\Windows". It should find a USB Mass Storage Driver, an iPod Driver, and a USBusEnumerator. Choose the iPod Driver, and if that doesnt work, try the USB Mass Storage Driver, and then the USBusEnumerator. If Vista gives you a memory error, reboot your computer and try the iPod Driver again.

This will then ask if you want to use recommended settings or troubleshoot compatibility, select the second option. Then choose "ran in an earlier version" and "needs extra permissions" you will be asked which os it worked in previously so select xp or vista and click ok. You will then be presented with another box, click on the start program button, go through the installation process as normal, when you have finished click next on the box with the start program button, at the bottom click next and follow the prompts.

Are you sure the Dolphin Digital Photo Frame is compatible with Windows Vista? When I searched, all I saw that was supported was XP and 2000. Once drivers are installed and they do not work, it's best to uninstall the driver (in the control panel in the system hardware configurations). Delete the driver and restart the computer with the picture fram plugged into the USB. You should be asked if you want to install the drivers. You then pick the custom location for drivers and browse to your drive with CD. You should be able to find the drivers somewhere within the disk (usually contained in it respective OS Folder e.g. WINXP). Load that particular driver.
