IPod camera issue

I have the same issue where my iPod is only showing up as a camera. I did what you suggested, but there is only the one driver showing up. How do I get the other one?

Thanks,

    after you uninstalled the ipod - make sure the newest itunes is installed, then press on the scan for new hardware button in the device manager or right click scan for new hardware.

    if it still installs the still camera driver for it

    open up search

    type in
    usbaapl

    note where that driver is stored.
    for example at c:\program files\apple\itunes\ (I just made that up its probably in another folder thats why we are Searching for it with the search tool)

    Then go to device manager select the ipod, update driver, manually(as above), have disk - go to the address where the usbaapl is stored and click ok it should find the driver, continue, it should install the driver, and you are done.

My ipod touch shows up as a camera and ive tried site user ekse's solution but whn i go to upload driver i cant find any thing other than my ipod as a camera


ok you can try this method : 1. First off you need to have iTunes installed and the ipod touch plugged in and recognized as 'something' e.g. digital camera (it shouldn't really matter what it's recognized as, but it needs to be found by windows).
2. Search for usbaapl in the C:\WINDOWS system folder: o open windows explorer (e.g. Right-click Start and then click 'explore') o right-click the WINDOWS folder and select 'Search'). o type in usbaapl and hit Search - try to ignore the dog! You should find the driver info in a sub folder of C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B Remember that location (either leave the search box open or copy the folder name into note pad - you'll need it later) If you don't find usbaapl.sys, usbaapl.inf etc. then your drivers have not been installed with the iTunes install and you'll have to reinstall iTunes.

3. Locate the ipod-camera device: o Open the device manager, e.g. using Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager o Look for a device called 'ipod' - if your ipod shows up as 'digital camera' it will be under something like 'imaging devices'.
4. Update the driver: o Right click the 'ipod-camera' in device manager and click on 'Update Driver' - the Hardware Update Wizard will open. o Check the 'Install from a list or specific location' then click 'Next' o Check 'Search for the best driver in these locations'. Un-check 'Search removable media' and check 'Include this location in the search'. In the text box below type (or better copy and paste) the folder containing the ipod driver information found in step 1 (in the example above it was C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B), then click Next. You should now see something like 'Apple ipod device driver' or so. Continue installing that device. Once the driver has been installed the ipod will come to life and iTunes (if you have it open) will show it.

P.S.:if you didn't find the updated drive in STEP1 you can try to find the updated drive file in C:\windows\system32\drivestore\FileRepository\usbappl.inf

Tip

Ipod touch / or other ipod shows up as camera


I just fixed this problem in a live chat few days ago.

You need to open device manager.
right click my computer, select manage, on the left side find device manager.

Find the ipod from the list, click on "update driver", don't look online,


b9ed725.jpg

Then select install from list.
d3a3a5a.jpg

then
93bfa65.jpg

You should find 2 or more drivers in this part, select the ipod USB driver name may be different, just don't select the still camera that it is now using.

if it still installs the still camera driver for it

open up search

type in usbaapl

note where that driver is stored.
for example at c:\program files\apple\itunes\ (I just made that up its probably in another folder that's why we are Searching for it with the search tool)

Then go to device manager select the ipod, update driver, manually(as above), have disk - go to the address where the usbaapl is stored and click ok. it should find the driver, continue, it should install the driver, and you are done.

Thanks,
Ekse

My ipod touch still isnt recongnised by my computer as an ipod, it comes up as a camera. ive tried reinstalling itunes, updating the driver and it still wont work. any more suggestions?


Your computer will only recognize your iPod as a camera, because its supposed to.
  1. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod.
  2. Scroll down on the left side, you should see your iPod there.
  3. If you do not, then consult the Apple Store.

I have an ipod 80GB with video out to the TV My 60GB willplay my pictures as a slide show on the TV, but the 80GB will not. Any Suggestions


You probably need different cables for the different ipod. Go to www.apple.com and click on the support tab; after it loads put the article HT1453 into the search. It will pull up the apple article on this exact kind of issue. It has pictures to show the different kinds of cables needed for the TV OUT feature on ipods. I found it very helpful, hope you do as well. Cheers :)

Ipod 30gb


This might be something as simple as the order inwhich you do things.
1. make sure Itunes is installed first. This should give you all the drivers you need.
2. Run Itunes.
3. Then hook up the ipod. (In order for your computer to regonise it as a portiable player you have to run itunes first, other wise it is a hard drive and will be seen as one.
4. Give itunes a few minutes to discover the device. You may have to go under your windows and sya cync Ipod.
5. With in Itunes should be an ipod screen that shows up under the area the play lists show up, but above the coustom play lists and below the itunes store.
6. click on this window and you should see your ipod and be able to sync it with all your music and more.

If you have any furhter issues email me or write back here.

Ipod not getting connected to itunes nor getting charged, and please recommend which ipod converter to download. Thank you in advance my ipod is not charged, when connected to a computer


hello!

if your IPod touch is not connected to itunes, please try the ff:

Check the iPod touch Display
-- When you connect iPod touch to your computer, the iPod touch should display an image or message on the display

-- If you do not see any image, check some basic troubleshooting here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1737
-- If you see a message on the screen, this indicates that the iPod touch does not have sufficient battery charge to operate and will need to be charged for several minutes before it can be recognized in iTunes.

Verify Windows PC System Requirements

--iPod touch requires iTunes 7.4 or later
Check USB Connections

-- iPod touch requires USB 2.0 to function properly
-- Try connecting iPod touch to a different USB port, preferably a port that is built-in to the computer instead of an external USB hub. Connecting iPod touch to your keyboard's USB ports is not recommended.

Restart your PC

-- In some cases, your computer's USB ports may become temporarily disabled or you may experience other software related issues. Restarting your PC is an easy troubleshooting step that may resolve this issue.

Verify iPod touch Driver/Service Installation

-- iPod touch requires two important pieces of software to operate properly on Windows. First, the driver must be installed; for iPod touch the driver is USBAAPL.SYS. Second, Apple Mobile Device Support must be installed as a Windows Service.

Itouch not showing on my itunes


Usually, unplugging, replugging it and then rebooting solves the problem.

your other options are a driver issue..either with the ipod drivers, itunes, or the USB drivers for your computer itself. since your ipod video and psp work fine, you can rule out USB drivers, but that doesn't rule out additional driver problems.

the other option is there's some kind of failure with your ipod..and sometimes if a device starts drawing power before doing any kind of communication with the computer (like when my rockbox-hacked ipod goes into charge only mode) then windows will assume there's a hardwire issue. the best way to determine if it's an issue with your ipods are take them to another computer and see if they work. if they work fine...try uninstalling and reinstalling itunes (back up your music and database) and see if that solves the problem. if none of that solves it and you know the ipod shuffles are good..then your system has suffered from the mysterious driver failure that's plagued a lot of systems. and generally the only real solution is to reinstall windows from scratch.
