reinstalled my windows operating system and decided to put on windows 8.  After loading all of my music back into a freshly installed itunes, my 4th gen ipod is not recognized by itunes.  My 1st gen ipod nano works with no problem.  I can eliminate any problems with the cable and connection.
I've stopped and started the service, and also have performed cold reboots.
Nothing seems to have helped the situation.
Help!

The iPod Classic uses different drivers than the Nano

  • IPod is not recognized by iTunes

    I have a 5th Generation iPod 30GB Video (my seventh) and have a problem connecting to iTunes. My iPod is playing okay but when I try to connect to iTunes on my laptop the display shows "Do not disconnect" but iTunes does not recongize it.
    I stop the USB connection and disconnect the iPod from my laptop and have to reset to get it back to operation.
    I followed some instructions on this forum that advised to reset the iPod, put it in Disk Mode and then connect it to the laptop. iTunes still does not recognize it and now I have the iPod in disk mode with a "Do not disconnect" flashing on my iPod display.
    What can I try next?

    I’m a big fan of the iPod but what I don’t like is Apple not being very forthcoming about how to move music from the iPod back to the PC. They’re quick enough to tell you how to move the music from your PC to your iPod but when you want to do the opposite, Apple clams up tight.
    Their reasoning is probably that the only reason you’d want to take your music off the iPod is to copy it and illegally distribute it. But that is really an insult to the music buyer. There are plenty of legitimate reasons why you would want to move your music from the iPod back to the PC. For a start, what if your hard-drive crashed and the only copies of the music were on your iPod? Or you accidentally deleted a song from your hard-drive and you wanted it back, without having to buy another copy?
    It has taken me ages to work out how to get the music off the iPod and onto the computer but I have finally got it. This is how to do it on a Windows PC. Since I don’t have a Mac, I can’t help there.
    The easy five-step guide to moving your music from your iPod to your PC
    1. In Windows Explorer, go to Tools > Folder Options > View. In the Advanced Settings list, under Hidden files and folders, check the radio button for “Show hidden files and folders”. Then click OK. You’ll get a Windows security warning but it’s safe enough to disregard it as we will only be disabling this function for a short while.
    2. Plug in your iPod. In Windows Explorer, a folder will now appear with the name of your iPod.
    Double-click on that. Go to the sub-folders “iPod_Control” and then “music”. You’ll find your music there randomly scattered across multiple folders and with scrambled file names. But don’t worry, the ID3 tags are still fully intact and we are now going to “unscramble” the files.
    3. But first copy all the music from those iPod folders into a new folder on your hard-drive. Move all the songs into one single folder and discard all the folders that your iPod made. By the end, you should have one folder in your hard-drive with all the scrambled files together.
    4. Open up iTunes and do the following : Go to Edit > Preferences. Under the Advanced tab, under the General “sub-tab”, select the local folder where you have copied the music from your iPod (by clicking Change…).
    Check the box “Keep iTunes Music folder organized” and click OK. Also make sure you have wiped all previous music from iTunes so your playlists are blank.
    5. In iTunes, click “File” then “add folder to library”. Select the folder where all your copied music is. iTunes will now re-import all your music back into the playlists. But more importantly, because you have previously clicked “Keep iTunes Music Folder organised”, iTunes will now start renaming and organising your songs into their correct names, albums and folders. This may take a while depending on how many songs you have in your iTunes library.
    There you have it. Oh and don’t forget to go back into Windows Explorer, and to Tools > Folder Options > View. Reverse what you did so the hidden files remain hidden again. You may also want to de-select “Keep iTunes Music Folder organised” if you don’t normally use that option.
    You may want to also take this opportunity (before doing the above) to wipe your iPod and revert it back to the factory settings also a suggestion; defrag your iPod (although I think that is potentially rife with problems). Then afterwards, just use iTunes to move your music from your PC back to your iPod.
    Reverting it back to factory settings is good for getting rid of any crap that has built up inside the iPod and making it run faster. After all, the iPod is basically a hard-drive and like PC hard-drives, an iPod can do with a purge once in a while to give it its speed back.

  • My ipod is not recognized by itunes. Menus missing in itunes.

    After I updated my ipod and my itunes, now the ipod is not recognized in itunes.  I went through all the recommended steps; starting and stopping various programs on my control panel, turning ipod on and off, checking cables - everything short of standing on my head.  In the process of all that,  I realized that the menu/task bar on the upper left side of the itunes page was gone. It wasn't there when I started this odyssey and it still isn't there..  I uninstalled and installed itunes again. I have Windows 8. Still no menu and still not recognizing the ipod. My ipod is 32gb touch screen.  Probably 3 years old or so. Was working fine before the updates......
    Thanks!!!

    Hi All,
    I tried to download the update and iTunes doesn't work at all! It won't even open. I have tried all of the steps above but still no joy.
    Any help would be much appreciated as I have been on this for one week already.
    Close to my wits end and moving back to a Sony and trying Android for the very first time.
    Thanks in advance.

    The cord might be the case, but first, try these suggestions:
    Try putting your iPod into disk mode, then try connecting it to your computer again...
    <a href="How to put your iPod into disk mode</a>
    Do you have a wall charger? If so, then try connecting your iPod to that, and does it charge, or not?

  • Will reinstalling Lion via the Lion recovery partition cause you to loose all of your applications, documents, etc or does it just replace the Lion operating system and leave everything else untouched?

    Will reinstalling Lion via the Lion recovery partition cause you to loose all of your applications, documents, etc or does it just replace the Lion operating system and leave everything else untouched?

    The latter. I cant tell you how many times I've reinstalled lion! all your apps will be fine!
    Things that will change are system graphics if you altered them with something like candybar or did it manually.
    Having said that, you should always backup your stuff with time machine incase something does happen.
    This is a very important step which will insure the safety of your files while doing things like updating or installing the OS.
    Please exercise caution when doing things with a Hard Drive.

  • Just updated my Ipad operating system and one of my apps starts but then the screen turns white, with only the advertisment at the top showing

    Just updated my Ipad operating system and one of my apps starts but then the screen turns white, with only the advertisment at the top showing

    The normal suggestions.
    Close the app,off fully.  Double tap the home screen then touch and hold any of the icons on the task bar until they jiggle, then close them all off by touching the - sign.
    Then reboot the pad and try the spp again.  If same issue, delete the app, then reload it.  ( no charge). You may just have a bad copy.  If continues, write to the developer, they may need to do an update.  I have an older version of the same app and it works fine.
    Since yours is the ad supported version, they are maing real sure you see the ad.  Is it as simple as you need to click thru the ad to get to the game?
