Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize

If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

Each time when I plug my Itouch into my PC usb port, my PC reboot itself & I'm using XP, but when I try with my nano it's working perfect. Also it detect it as digital still camera, which I cant find...

Try and plug it up on the back of the computer, the ports on the back are better suited to power the larger devices. You will have to find the player in device manager in control panel. If it has a yellow exclamation mark or a question mark under other devices or as a camera delete it, and right click the small computer icon at the top of the tree and chose scan for changes. Then chose portable device. Next Xp or Vista will want media player 10 or higher to see your player, also you may have to turn off any anti virus that may cause a problem. Leave it hooked up for a while to be sure it has charged some.

IRiver Music Manger not recognizing iRiver player when connected

First make sure you have the right drivers installed, you're hearing the "new device connected" sound when you plug it in, it's listed as recognized under device manager, and the only problem seems to be that iriver music manager isn't recognizing it.

If everything is working except for the music manager, then try holding down the "fast-forward" button at the same time that you connect the cable to the iriver. You probably want to keep iriver music manager loaded, to see if it's recognizing the player while you test this; try attaching/detaching the device several times, while you're holding down fast-forward and while you aren't, to see if that's enough to fix your problem.

I have no idea why it works when it does, it's an ugly kludge, but it seemed to fix the problem for me, and saved me from having to buy an entirely new flash mp3 player to replace this ancient one.

ITouch pretending to be a camera question

I hate to even try to explain how I was able to solve this problem because I am such a novice in this area but I was persistent enough to find a solution. After having found it am I sure I will struggle to remember all of the steps but I will at least try hoping to save someone the 3 hours I spent attempting to figure this out myself.

Step 1 -
I followed the advice from another thread on another website that said I should go to Start menu, click the "Run" icon and type in "devmgmt.msc". That brought up the "Device Manager". The other website suggested that I would find "Apple iPod" under one of the "USB icons" and by clicking on the "+" next to the icon I could locate it. However, when your iTouch is being recognized as a camera it does not appear under the USB icons. It appears under the "Imaging Devices" icon.

Step 2 -
Click on the "+" next to the "Imaging Devices" and "Apple iPod" should appear (if it doesn't, I apologize because I cannot explain to you from here where to go. If it does, go to Step 3.)

Step 3 -
Right click on "Apple iPod" and then click on the "Driver" tab, middle of the 3 tabs at the top.

Step 4 -
Click on "Driver Details" - the driver file name should end with "usbaapl.sys". If it does not, you do not have the correct driver installed to sync your iTouch. So you need to go to Step 5. If it does, again I apologize but my expertise has been exceeded and this solution is likely not for you.

Step 5 -
Close the "Driver Details" window and click on "Update Driver" - This will open the "Hardware Update Wizard" (if you are using Windows XP). In this window, click on "Install from specific location" button and click "Next"

Step 6 -
Click "Don't Search. I will choose the driver to install." and click "Next"

Step 7 -
Click "Have Disk" (even if you don't have a disk, I didn't and it worked anyway, because you will tell the computer where to find the "usbappl.sys" file eventually anyway.

Step 8 -
Choose "Browse" in the next window

Step 9 -
Go to your "Program Files" folder on your main drive (C: for me)
Click "Common Files"
Click "Apple"
Click "Mobile Device Support"
Click "Drivers"

Step 10 -
The file that appears in this folder is actually called - "usbappl.inf"
Select it and click "OK".

This made the final connection for me (somehow leading the computer to the "usbappl.sys" file which also is in this folder but does not appear as an option in the final step) and my iTouch began to sync within 5 seconds. Wow. What a relief. I hope this is clear and I hope this works for you. Sorry it is so long, but if it can save anyone a ton of time and frustration I will feel my time was well spent.

Computer not reading ipod

How did the live chat go?

heres something

Try it, I wrote it for a Itouch / iphone generally but basicly if its a driver issue that should solve it.

If not, can you post me the status of the ipod from the device manager?

Next step?

Please stay in one question.
You've started a new question with this post as you did with your request. It's easier for me to have one question, containing all posts regarding that question...
That was no answer for your question. Here we go

As you can see on the download page of samsung, there are several applications available. It's a bit confusing, as they have Multimedia Studio (1.0), Samsung Music Studio (1.0) and Samsung Media Studio(

I think you should just download Music Studio. This is a direct download link to the installation file. Since the Multimedia Studio doesn't work, you can uninstall it.

Also something to check, is that because the player is recognized and listed in the Device Manager, it probably is available in My Computer.
If not: right-click My Computer -> Manage
Select Storage -> Disk Management
Your mp3 should be listed there as an 20GB drive.
Let me know what you found.
