Ipod 80 classic not listed in my devices or my computer let alone in itunes

I almost feel jealous reading all these issues from these poor people whose pc's can actually see their Ipod. My Ipod 80gig ran fine with my last PC which ran XP but I made the mistake of thinking that Vista had now been around long enough for any bugs to be fixed and purchased a new dell.
After trawlling the web and being bounced between Dell and apple I'm at the point of thinking that either the Ipod or the PC has to go, seeing that the pc cost 10 times what the Ipod did I think I know which is going out the window.
When the Ipod is plugged in the PC does nothing, cant see it in my devices or my computer let alone in itunes.
I thought this was a problem with Vista but after reading a few forums I'm thinking it could be the new itunes which I downloaded after the new pc got here.
I have tried reinstalling Vista and itunes, tried to different usb leads and another ipod but still nothing.
Someone please help.
thanks
Thanks
dell Windows Vista dell

right.... I have plugged in a brand new Ipod and it went through the installing drivers process after which Itunes opened and there was the new Ipod listed.
So now I'm thinking that my origianl Ipod must be set to my old pc somehow... tried resetting it and all that but still nothing..
Has anyone got any ideas how to format the whole thing back to what it was straight out the box?? need to be able to do this just on the Ipod as there is no way to control Ipod from PC still as its still not recognising it.
thanks

  • Fingerprint reader not listed in Biometric Devices

    Hello. The HP Notebook I'm currently using with Windows 7 Ultimate is the Pavilion dv4-1225ee Entertainment PC (FZ248EA#ABV). It's got a built-in fingerprint reader (Validity Sensor's VFS201), which works only with DigitalPersona.
    Now the problem I'm encountering is quite minor: If I go to Biometric Devices in Control Panel, I get the message "Windows did not find any biometric device on this computer. You might need to attach your device or install device drivers", even though the reader is listed under Biometric Devices in Device Manager ;

  • TS3716 installed the new itunes and now my ipod nano  does not show in the device menu

    installed the new itunes and now my ipod nano  does not show in the device menu

    There's a couple of ways to get through to the authorisation controls in the 11.0.x versions.
    The control is still in the Store menu, but first (if you're using iTunes versions 11.0.x) you might need to bring up the menu bar to see the Store menu.
    If you're using 11.0.x, click on the wee boxy icon up in the top-left corner of your iTunes to see the "Show Menu Bar" control, as per the following screenshot:
    Then you'll find the control in the Store menu:
    Alternatively, if you don't want to bring up the menu bar, it's still possible to get into the authorise controls via nested menus accessible from the wee boxy icon. Here's a screenshot of where to find them:

  • Wndows did not detect any biometric devices on this computer..

    I have an HP ProBook 4540s running Windows 7 Professional w/IE11. I had to do a clean install of Windows 7 Pro and since then I cannot get my fingerprint reader to work at all. In my Control panel, under Biometric Devices, I recieve the message "Windows did not detect any biometrics devices on this computer". However, under Computer , Properties, Device Manager, Biometric Devices,  the is Validity Sensors (WBF) (PID=003d).
    I have tried to update, uninstall, re-install HP Simplepass, drivers, etc from the HP website, but nothing is working. Also I cannot find exactly what fingerpriint reader hardware is installed on the computer even though it is physically there as part of the original configuration.
    I appreciate any assistance in resolving this issue.

  • 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
    baffled....

    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.

  • IPod Nano 6g not syncing - Apple Mobile Device Support can't install

    i recently got iTunes working again on my computer. my grandfather wanted me to sync his old iPod Nano, so i did that and it worked fine. i then tried to sync my own iPod Nano 6g, and it gave me the error:
    "An iPod has been detected, but it could not be identified properly. Please disconnect and reconnect the iPod, then try again.
    If the problem persists, uninstall iTunes, then install iTunes again."
    i tried reconnecting the iPod, of course, and then tried reinstalling iTunes, but the same error kept coming up. if i closed iTunes, then connected the iPod, i could find it in My Computer, but after opening iTunes it would give me the error and eject itself. i then tried all the stuff outlined here:
    http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/ituneshelp/?kbase=TS1363&viewlocale=en_US
    but that didn't help. i tried plugging the iPod into the USB ports at the back of the computer, but nope.
    i soon discovered that Apple Mobile Device Support wasn't running or installed on the computer, and that that may be the source of the problem. however, i looked in my C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple folder and there was a Apple Mobile Device folder. it didn't appear complete, though, as there wasn't the 'bin' folder needed to run AMDS properly. i renamed this Apple Mobile Device folder, adding an 'OLD' at the end, so as to not interrupt any times i would try to install AMDS in this folder properly.
    i first tried a simple complete uninstall then reinstall of iTunes, but i noticed during the install that when the installer got to the stage of installing Apple Mobile Device Support, it would stop and then say 'rolling back action' and the loading bar would move backwards, before installing the rest of iTunes as normal. hence, AMDS was still uninstalled and my iPod still wasn't being recognized by iTunes.
    i tried extracting the iTunesSetup.exe file, and then running the AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi file separately, but it would give me the same rolling back action thing and it would end in 'installation interrupted, system was not modified, please try again later'. tried disabling my anti-virus then installing iTunes, then disabling my anti-virus and running the AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi separately but nothing was different.
    please help. why is Apple Mobile Device Support not installing? and is this actually the reason why my iPod is not syncing with iTunes? any insight would be appreciated. thanks.

  • Burner not listed in output devices

    Just bought a new PowerMac with a factory installed PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D. While running DVDSP 4.0.3, I only have hard drive listed under output devices. I'm guessing the burner is compatible since it shipped with the computer...any suggestions or any similar experiences? Thanks in advance.
    Dave

    I am having the same issue, as are several other people (search the form for "burner" and you'll see several reports of this problem on the first page). My Mac Pro is two weeks old, and the burner does show up in the "more info" report - but not in DVD Studio Pro, even after rebooting.

    Hi,
    It's certainly strange!
    I don't normally recommend updating the bios ( unless it is known to resolve a particular issue ) but I do notice that there is a fairly recent update available Here.
    If your not already at this level, it may be worth applying this - although it doesn't mention this particular issue.
