Maybe the usb in your computer is only 1.0 version or type. Because as far as i know the new ipod is usb2.0. If you computer is old already or your purchased it more than one year you need to buy a pci usb and install it to your computer.

  1. Verify that you have an active Internet connection, because you may need to download new versions of the iTunes and iPod Software.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if necessary.
  3. Open iTunes. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel. You will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes window.
  6. Click Restore.
  7. If you are using a Mac, you will be asked to enter an administrator's name and password.
  8. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage one of the restore process has begun. When this stage is done, iTunes will present one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. During stage two of the restore process, the iPod displays an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remain connected to the computer or iPod power adapter during this stage.
    Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see, because the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  10. After stage two of the restore process is complete, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear. It will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences, as it did when you connected your iPod for the first time.

How to fix error 48 in itunes


The message does not indicate that there is an issue with the iPod but that that iTunes was unable to read the iPod software update it uses to restore or update your iPod. You can delete the folder containing the iPod software update files so iTunes can download a new copy of the iPod software update.

Here are the steps to take if you get this message:

Eject iPod and quit iTunes.
Use Disk Utility in Mac OS X or run chkdsk in

Windows to verify there are no other issues on your hard drive.
Locate the iPod Software Updates folder:

In Mac OS X, the folder is
/Users/username/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates

In Windows Vista, the folder is
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

In Windows XP and Windows 2000, the folder is
C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

Note: If you don't see the files in Windows, turn on the Show hidden files option.
Windows Vista: Open Computer and choose Folder and Search Options from the Organize menu.
Windows XP and 2000: Open My Computer and click Folder Options from the Tools menu.
Click the View tab.
In the Advanced Settings pane, select the "Show hidden files and folders" button.
Click OK.
Drag the iPod Software Updates folder to the Trash or Recycle Bin.
Connect iPod and open iTunes. You will need to be connected to the Internet to download the files.

Then restore the ipod agin -

My USB ports no longer detect devices when plugged in.


Updating, or in some cases reinstalling, the drivers for your computer's USB interface should resolve this issue.
Locate the iPod in Device Manager
  1. Connect iPod to the computer.
  2. Quit iTunes if it launches.
  3. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  4. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
  5. Double click the Computer Management shortcut.
  6. In the left column, click on Device Manager.
  7. In the right column, click the plus (+) icon next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
  8. Locate the iPod in this list. In some cases one of the entries will have "iPod" in its name. If no such entries are present, the iPod is most likely represented by "USB Mass Storage Device."
  9. Note: A red "X" appearing next to the iPod's entry in Device Manager indicates this device is disabled. To enable this device, right-click its entry in Device Manager and choose Enable from the shortcut menu.
  10. Update the USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Update Driver from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the Hardware Update Wizard that appears, select "Yes, this time only" to allow Windows to connect to the Windows Update Website. Click Next.
    3. Select "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows searches for updated drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, continue with step #4.
    4. Click Back.
    5. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next.
    6. Select "Search for the best driver in these locations."
    7. Select "Include this location in the search" and type the following in the field below: C:\Windows\INF
  11. Click Next. Windows searches this location for drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, you must reinstall the USB drivers as shown below.
  12. Note: During installation, if a message appears stating that the software you are installing "has not passed Windows Logo testing" click Continue Anyway to continue installing the drivers.
  13. Reinstall USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the resulting dialog box, click OK.
    3. In the Device Manager window, right-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and choose Scan for hardware changes from the shortcut menu.
    4. Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod. Regards...

Ipod not showing in itunes on a work computer with network drives


Important: Changing the iPod drive letter may not affect what letter the iPod uses on subsequent connections, so it is not the best long-term solution. If you are unable to change the drive letter of your mapped network drives, contact your system administrator.


Change the Drive Letter
Open the Control Panel.

**You Must be the compter admin to proceed ***

Double click on Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
Double click on Computer Management.
In the left column, click on Disk Management.
Locate the iPod and right click on it, then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.


Click the Change button.


Use the drop-down menu to select a new drive letter. Note: Make sure to choose a new drive letter that is not already assigned to a network drive. The drop-down menu will display all available letters that are not assigned to a physical drive. Drive letters that are assigned to a network volume will still be listed here. It is also a good idea to assign a drive letter other than a, b, c, or d, as these letters are usually reserved for other system drives.


Click OK.
Click Yes on the confirmation dialog.


Close the Computer Management window.
Restart your computer.

Hi, I get an error message when I try to connect and install a Maxtor 500 GB external hard drive to my computer. The message reads "the device cannot start (Code 10). Can you assist?


What is the error message you get?

What OS are you using?

Depends on your hard drive, some computer commonly ask for a driver when you plug something in it. might as well try reading the manual of your external hard drive, if it doesn't require a driver, then the problem "might" be in your operating system and/or in your computer.

Trouble with Kensington Pocket Mini Hub USB 2.0 and Apple iPod.


I believe the reason you have this problem is your trying to run too many USB items than your pc can handle at the same time. Since you only have 1 USB port on your pc it may not have enough power to run an iPod and your DSL at the same time.
