IPod connection bugs

I installed an external drive. Ipod normally connects to E:, was replaced by the external drive. When I plugged my iPod after this, it asks for a reformat. Also, it somehow managed to uninstall my cardreader, set as F: G: H: I:. Even after changing back the drive names (setting the iPod as E: again) it doesn't work. Connecting the iPod won't even show itself as an external disk, only freeze the computer and deliver the error msg.

Problem might solve by a reformat. But I've used the iPod as an external disk and I have data that I don't want to loose.

Any idea?

Does my ipod work with windows vista home edition


Yes. Your ipod should be automatically recognised by Windows Vista as soon as you plug it in.

Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable provided.


If this is the first time you have connected your iPod Vista will automatically install the drivers and software required.


There was a slight bug at one stage with compatibility but this was fixed in 2007 with a patch from Microsoft.


Hope this helps.

How to use your IPOD as an External Drive (Mac)


If you're running out of external Hard drives or don't have a Flash drive on hand, and you need to transfer file or simply trying to copy anything externally, don't worry! Ipod can be a useful tools beside from its original purpose, as being a wonderful portable media device, this digital wonder can practically be used a portable external drive, on which you can store files, JUST like an external HDD (Hard Disk Drive) connected to your Mac.

An example of Ipod classic packs a lot of data storage in just a small package, from 5GB up to 160 GB, and in the future, some Ipod will have more capacity (A Gigabytes is a unit of computer memory of data storage capacity, that is equal to 1,024 megabyte, so One Gigabytes is equal to one billion bytes).
To configure an Ipod to be used an an external Hard Drive please follow this steps:
  1. Of course connect your Ipod to your Mac ( Once this is connected iTunes will automatically launch and connects to the Ipod
  2. Select the Ipod on the source list
  3. Click the summary tab, if its isn't selected already
  4. Select the Enable disk use disk box, (at this time you will see a warning prompt that will explain this procedure, because the Ipod will be acting as Hard Drive (Hard Drive is an optical or magnetic disk that is used to read and write information on it)
  5. Click Ok at the prompt
  6. Click Apply, then it is ready to use.
  7. Note: You must manually eject this before disconnecting the device from your computer after you finished!

Ipod and External Hard Drive No longer recognized by PC


Depending on your iPod, may have to go see if there is a driver on-line to download and reinstall on your computer. Short of that, you may want to try a DEFRAG, or else try and go back to a RESTORE past RESTORE point and see what happens. Even try Virus Scan and Ad-Aware scan for Bugs that may have infected the file that reads your iPod. Try to think of any software updates you may have made shortly to the iPod not be identified...

External hard drive and ipod


It really doesnt matter, you will just have to have the hard drive plugged in when you sync you ipod or want to listen to music with your ipod. The only thing i have to say about it is if the external hard drive is if its connected to your computer with a USB rather than a firewire, then it might be slower to load than if you keep it on an internal hard drive. But it will work and wont be very slow, just slower.

Ipod ready/USB problem


The USB port is to be used with USB mass storage devices like flash drives, thumbdrive or external hard drives. The IPod's USB connection is not seen as a mass storage device it is proprietary. You need the iPod connection kit, part number KS-PD100 to connect your iPod to the deck.
