I also had trouble connecting it initially, I kept trying different usb ports until one worked, now it's flawless. Good luck !

i *suggest* uninstalling all the software you got with your ipod....

reboot.


re-install your USB drivers (or motherboard drivers)

reboot.

install iTUNES

reboot.


plug in your ipod

profit.

hopefully it will be that easy.... i had an infuriating time getting my ipod to work with windows.. but finally... it did... it just aint easy.


hopefully, those steps, done in that order should at least give you a good start... and you probably don't need any of the bundled ipod software itself.

if that doesnt work... google for 'ipod windows help forum' or something along these lines.

try "ipod lounge" - there's forums there with tons of FAQS and stuff. you'll probably find a solution.

i had no probs with my musicmatch, but i hated the program, so switched to ephpod - a much more streamlined and straightforward interface.

2-3 minutes, I can tie my shoes while I wait

but yeah, no question that it was designed for, and works better with firewire

I got a firewire PCI card for $50
and I don't have to screw around with USB adaptors for my iPod, which I bet are close to 50 bucks too!

I never had any issues getting iTunes/iPod working on my PC.

and the firewire is superfast.

Throwing it out the window is an option too. PM me your address first though.

over, under, in and out, that's what shoe-tieing's all about.

X 2

then pause to reflect on a job well done

iPod mini comes with a lot of fun new games. Like music trivia where it selects random bits from songs on your iPod and then plays them and you scroll through a list of 4 songs as fast as you can to click on the right answer. You're awarded points for how fast you can identify the song. I know that doesn't solve your initial question but that's ok because 4 other people already gave you answers that will work.

I got the adaptor... now my comp won't install Install Shield... I think I might just get rid of this bloody thing.. it's becoming not worth it.

Check Buy and Sell soon for an unused 40 gig.

Josh (Tearer) just bought that iriver120, it's a 20G. he's pleased with it. it's slightly more bulky than the iPod but apparently it has more features.

I still like my 10G iPod :)

Try resetting the iPod

I think you do that by holding down Menu and Play at the same time for a few seconds


if your iPod is still within 90 days of purchase, apple still offers free phone support on solving your windows iPod issue.
