  • Ipod Shuffle Not Showing Up in Disk Utility, Finder, or iTunes

    Until a few days ago, this 4th gen shuffle used to work fine re. syncing with iTunes on both my iMac and MB Pro (Mavericks & iTunes udated to most current).  Now it won't show in either machine, anywhere; not inDisk Utility, FInder, or iTunes - nor even in System Information, USB (as far as I could interpret those screens). 
    It takes and holds a charge when plugged into an outlet, and plays fine... I've charged it fully before plugging it into the computer(s), and have tried it with the iPod turned off, and on.
    I've searched these forums, but don't see an exactly similar situtation described, or solved.
    Any tips out there?

    Howdy sdpg,
    It sounds like your iPod isn't being recognized in any way on either of your Mac computers. Normally if this issue is happening on more than 1 computer, it's either to do with the device itself, or the USB cable being used. I would start by using a differnet USB cable if you can. Then I would use the troubleshooting in the following article to help troubleshoot the computer(s), named:
    iTunes: iPod not recognized in iTunes and Mac desktop
    If the issue persists, then use the troubleshooting in this article to troubleshoot the iPod itself if needed:

  • On an iPod Nano 2G, the iPod will not show in iTunes

    Using an iPod Nano 2 G, when I plug it into a Mac, the iPod will not show in iTunes. The iPod will charge, but will not sync. This happens across multiple Mac's, so the issue seems to be the Nano, not the computer(s). The iPod will actually show for about 2 seconds in the left sidebar, then it disappears. Any suggestions about how to either fix this, or maybe how to restore the iPod's software. The iPod otherwise seems to be working correctly, i.e. will play music, etc. we have tried switching ports, cables and computers, same results. 

    Did you do everything here:

    Do other USB devices work on the computer/USB port??

  • Ipod does not show on itunes..

    the 30gb ipod does not show on itunes but the window can read.
    It is because i over charged the ipod?( my sister's ipod was shown in itunes and my can't).
    The day before it was working perfectly well.
    The music pitch is weird now
    I can't restore it... i deleted all of my music in the library.
    i have no idea how to copy the music into the com.......................... please help.

    If your iPod is being recognised by Windows you could try this manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs back to iTunes on Windows posted here: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    If you prefer something more automated then there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward. Again if Windows is recognising the iPod these may too.

  • HT3624 additional airport express not showing in wireless device list

    I have an additional AX to extend my WiFi but it's not showing in wireless device list; it is plugged in, next to base AX, did a hard-reset, amber light is blinking. Everything was working fine for a more than a year. Thank you for your help.

    I don't use Xserve but when this happens to me:
    I reset the express. I use a wireless Mac to "find" the Express. Need to select the network under the Airport icon. If not there then System prefs/netwrok/status/airport then drop down menu to preferred. If there select it and then select apply then back to that airport icon and finish by using the Airport Utility or in your case Admin utility. If not found in preferred then use the + button. I have never failed to "find" my "lost" network using this counter measure.
    If you don't have a wireless Mac then do it with an ethernet connection.

  • Why isn't my ipod shuffle not showing up in my devices, or my desktop?

    I received my ipod shuffle (2nd gen) app. 2 years ago, however, this is the first time that I have ever tried to sync my current itunes library onto it. I connected the shuffle with a USB chord, but, the shuffle does not show up in "devices", nor on my desk top like my other ipod does. When it is plugged into the chord, the light flashes orange. I think that orange flashing means that it is "syncing music", however, there is no signs of the shuffle being connected to my Apple Mac in anyway. I have tried rebooting the computer, as well as turning my shuffle on and off. However, nothing has helped it. I have watched videos reviewing "fake shuffles" and I am confident that mine is not a fake. Please help me! Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem.  I'm using a new shuffle usb cable in my 2nd generation shuffle and nothing shows up on computer.  I'm wondering if the dock for the second gen is different than the new usb cable direct into the 2nd gen shuffle. I don't have a dock for it.  Before I buy one on ebay I hope someone can assist.

  • Items on ipod that do not show up on Device list, want to remove them

    A pod cast and a video I downloaded from itunes and copied to my ipod are on my ipod but when I connect the ipod they do not show up on the lists of items on the device. I can see and play them on the ipod, but cannot find them on the list of items on the ipod when I connect to itunes...
    I want to remove them and can't

    They should be able to help you. You must have the iPod set to manually managed. Podcasts generally work best when set to auto-sync.
    To find these files it is easiest to create a smart playlist on the iPod itself with the right rules to find the files while it is set to manually manage. To delete files through a smart playlist you will need to hold the "Alt" key on the keyboard then hit the Delete key. Atl/Delete is for Mac but may be a combination of Delete and Shift, Control, or Windows key on Windows PCs.
