Check the small print on the back of the ipod at the bottom. if it's not there it should be listed in the menus under SETTINGS>ABOUT. you should find it there.

Samsung YP-U5 ipod installation problem


dont load crappy software that comes with these things,
windows generic usb storage device drivers works solidly.
just treat it like a flash drive, drag and drop your mp3s into the music folder.
and make sure its charged, i.e. leave it plugged into the computer for al least 30 mins

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. ts1538_1.jpg
  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." ts1538_2.jpg ts1538_3.jpg
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.
ts1538_4.jpg 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. ts1538_5.jpg
  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 ts1538_6.jpg
  8. 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.
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.
Reinstall USB driver
  1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu. ts1538_7.jpg
  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.
ts1538_8.jpg Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod.

Try these and reply me about the current status of the ipod..

Regarding ipod nano 4 gb


You don't need a cd for it. It will install the drivers for you. You should install Itunes to get it up an running. It's available for download at apple.com. The software is free to use. This will manage your Ipod for playback.

No install disk for my Ipod


Actually if you have windows Xp you will need to download the software from www.sandisk.com But if you have windows Vista you will not need the software, the computer should recognize it by itself.

Driver software


It does in fact sound like a computer problem. Make sure you have Windows Service Pack 2 installed. Are you using Windows XP? Take the installation CD and reinstall all the programs.
