Ipod not recognised by computer

Hi

Recently whenever I try to connect my ipod to a computer using the USB cable it does not seem to be recognised in both my computer as an external drive or in itunes.

I have tried on various computers (including 2 macs) and using a different cable. I have also done the ipod reset and then tried again but still no luck.

Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks, Chris.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


Hi,

Try connecting this ipod to rear USB port on your desktop computer and then try this out

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step
It should work fine

It could be that the interface on the IPod is bad or the IPod cable is bad. I would try another cable to see if that fixes the problem.

Usb problem


Often this is an electrostatic charge problem on usb hub.
To solve it:
On PC disconnect power cable for 30 mins or so from power outlet.
On laptop, disconnect from power and remove latop battery for 15 mins or so.
If it still does not work, then it may be faulty root hub on motherboard.

Ipod not recognised in itunes


You should try connecting the iPod to a different computer and see if it works. If it doesn't work, you should try connecting with a different USB cable if you can get a hold of one. One of the two should be your problem (a defective USB port on the computer or a defective iPod USB cable).

ITunes closes when I put in iPod


Try checking for ipod for any corrupted files. If you use P2P software to "pirate" music, try deleting those files. Also try a different usb port, and if you are using a hub, plug directly into the computer.....which Mac do you have btw?



Hope this helps.
