Question about Apple iPod nano
When I plug my ipod into my computer, it doesn't show up anywhere. Neither in "My Computer" or itunes. I'm running Windows XP Professional. I've tried resetting and forcing it to disk mode, reinstalling itunes, changed USB ports, and all the other possible solutions offered by the help web site. It was suggested that I take it to an Apple store for repair. It still plays music and videos that are downloaded on it, it just won't sync up with itunes.I have more music and videos that I wish to install on it. ipod not recognized by computer or itunes but just plays the music downloaded on it.
I have the same problem but apple computer dont offered a solution, anyway we must not buy this ipod things

i had this problem with my shuffle and had it with my 7G 3rd generation nano. It does appear to be a usb problem, as suggested. i fixed it both time by go to the Device Manager (right click on my computer - properties - hardware - device manager). If your ipod is connected, you will see the apple ipod DRIVER even when you don't see the ipod in my computer or in itunes. Right click on the Apple ipod driver and uninstall it. Then your pc will automatically reinstall the driver because your device is still connected. After that reinstall happens, you should your ipod in itunes. I hope it works for some!!! I think it's almost always a usb problem. My error happens whenever I plug in my ipod when other usb devices are connected. To be safe now, I have to remove all other usb devices before plugging in my ipod.

I had the same problem. The problem ended up being with Itunes not working right. The solution I found was to download the program winamp and download the plugin for apple ipod. Then you can sync and add software thru winamp. After syncing one time it even worked with itunes but I like winamp better, so I synch all music using winamp.

For it to recongnize, maybe try:
1: go to control panel
3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list
6:scroll down to windows portable devices
7:and choose MTP device
this should make it so your ipod is now recognised by the computer

Maybe you should try this third ipod manager tool - Daniusoft iPod transfer:
1. Sync videos/songs from computer to iPod without iTunes ;
2. Backup videos/songs off iPod to computer smoothly ;
3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .
I always use it to sync my iPod when my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, it's easy to use and works pretty well.
