HT1386 Since installing the latest itunes to windows 8 my iphone and ipod touch is not being recognized in itune

Since installing the latest itunes to windows 8 my iphone and ipod touch is not being recognized in itunes, therefore i can't change playlists or add songs etc. Is this a fault with itunes as it was fine with the older version or is there something i can do. I'm not on IOS yet but would like to backup my phone first but can't do that atm due to not being able to view my phone on itunes!
Thanks

Hi, jodie_0182.
I would recommend the steps in the article below.  See the section labeled Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed > For Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 > Update the Apple Mobile Device Driver.
iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538
If the above step does not resolve the issue, try all remaining steps in the article. 
Cheers,

  • IPhone 6 and iPod Touch 5 not being detected by iTunes 12

    iPod 5 and iPhone 6 is not being detected after I downloaded iTunes 12.1.2
    Tried changing the lightning conductor, that didn't help either.
    Re-installed iTunes but it was of no use. :/

    See iPhone, iPad, or iPod not recognized in iTunes for Windows - Apple Support
    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down the page in case one of them applies.
    The further information area has direct links to the current and recent builds in case you have problems downloading, need to revert to an older version or want to try the iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) release as a workaround for installation or performance issues, or compatibility with QuickTime or third party software.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there are also links to backup and recovery advice should it be needed.

    Does it charge?
    Tried anohter cable?
    Another USB port?
    Try another computer to help determine if you have an iPod or computer problem.

  • TS3716 ipod nano is not being recognized by iTunes.

    My ipod nano 2nd generation (and working perfectly) is not being recognized by iTunes.
    Any suggestions?

    Does the iPod work OK?
    Have you tied resetting the iPod? Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    Next would be to place the iPod in recovery mode and then restore via iTunes.  If iTunes does not see the iPod then the iPod is not usable. For recovery mode:
    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore

  • My iPod Touch is not being recognised by iTunes or my computer, yet still charges. I have done EVERYTHING.

    When I plug my iPod in, my computer makes the 'ding' noise. However, neither the computer or iTunes actually recognises that there is anything there, yet it still charges.
    This iPod is BRAND NEW. I havn't even had the chance to ACTIVATE it yet. I installed the latest version of iTunes. I have tried THREE different USB cords, and EVERY USB available. I have restarted my computer. I have restarted the iPod. I have waited until it was charged. I have spend about HOURS going through Apple Support, and looking up alternative solutions from people having a similar problem. Most of their problems were fixed by wiping the iPod... mine isn't even activated yet.
    Solve this one, Apple. WITHOUT sending me a replacement.

    Is iTunes version 11 installed? Just do not say latest.
    Did you try everything here?
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    including here
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    If you  have iTunes 11 turn on the Sidebar. Go to iTunes>View and click on Show Sidebar. You can also do a Crtl+S to show the sidebar. The sidebar is where Devices appears. and Control+B to show the Menu bar
    Next try another computer to help determine if you have an iPod/cable or computer problem
    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

  • My ipod touch isn't being recognized by iTunes or my computer. It's in "ipod recovery mode"?

    My ipod touch 5th generation is not being recognized by my computer under devices or in itunes; however, when I click on devices and printers it comes up under "unspecified" and is labeled as "Apple mobile device usb driver." I right clicked the icon and hit troubleshooter and it opened itunes and told me I should restore and update my ipod. I did this twice and nothing has changed, it is still not being recognized. This is a big problem because the only thing that will pop up on the screen of my ipod is the symbol for the usb plug with an arrow pointing to the itunes symbol (meaning plug into itunes I assume). I have tried restarting my ipod and restarting my computer and nothing is working. I have the most recent version of itunes. How do I fix this?

    first try:
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    next
    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.
