Question about Apple iPod shuffle Second Gen. Silver (1 GB) MP3 Player (MA564LL/A)
I connect my iPod to my computer and neither iTunes nor my computer recognizes my iPod. My iPod will start to charge but the battery meter varies greatly. Both my computer and iTunes recognize my wife's 30gb video and her sister’s 2gb nano when connected. Can you please help me?
I have a 20 gig ipod with no color (made in 2004). I am not sure of the model. This only gives me problems when I attempt to hook it up the the firewire on my windows xp home edition pc. It works fine on other systems. I have a fairly new system (built in 2007). My computer will not recoginze anything having to do with my ipod, but it will charge from my pc. Here is what I have done....
I have installed itunes 4-7, still no recognition Reinstalled the motherboard drivers, no recognition Reinstalled the NVIDIA drivers, Briefly showed the "do not disconnect, as if it was beginning to sync), but no recognition Searched for new hardware on the ieee 1394 firewire port, no recognition The 5 Rs, no recognition Registered my ipod, no recognition Ran diagnostics (connection and sync tests) from itunes 7, no recognition Set ipod to Disk Mode, no recognition Ran the test from my ipod to my pc to ensure a signal was coming from my firewire port (the connection was good), no recognition Ran Apple software update, still no recognition I have left the device on to fully deplete the battery and attempted to connect, still no recognition
As far as I can tell from the 6 weeks I have been trying to fix this issue, I have done all that I can do. Apple offers no assistance whatsoever, so I am on my own here. The firewire port is clearly working and the drivers are up to date. My ipod recognizes the firewire port, but my firewire port does not recognize my ipod, nor does my pc. But the ipod is also clearly charging. I am positive that this is something very simple to fix, can someone please HELP!!
Hold in play/pause, and then connect to PC
I don't completely understand the "Firweire" reference. The manual (and logic) does not indicate that a firewire connection would work. Plain old USB for this device.
