Itunes does not recognize my 6th generation ipod nano.  I installed, unintalled the progam...can't get it to work. any suggestions?

can't get my itunes to recognize my 6th generation nano.  I have installed/uninstalled.  Restarted and I can't get it to work.  Any suggestions?

1. Update iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes still can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
2. Click on your windows start menu. Type in "services". Click on it and when it pops up, on the bottom of it click on "standard". Now Scroll down to find "Apple Mobile Device" Right click it when you see it and click on "Start". When it has started, close iTunes and replug in your iPod and it should show up.
3. Check the USB cable
4 Verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is installed
5. Restart the Apple Mobile Device Service and verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed.
6. If you just want to add some photos, songs and movies from computer to your devices, you can use an iTunes alternative to do the job
7. Check for third-party software conflicts.

  • ITunes does not recognize my first generation iPod Shuffle

    iTunes does not recognize my first generation iPod Shuffle (512MB).  Windows 7 sees the iPod as an empty external drive although the iPod has music on it.  The iPod plays the music fine.  iTunes does recognize a similar first generation iPod Shuffle.
    What can be wrong with the iPod Shuffle?   How can I fix?
    Thanks,I

  • ITunes does not recognize my 2nd generation iPod Touch.

    The computer sees it but iTunes doesn't.
    o iTunes diagnostics says no device is connected.
    o I AM using the Apple-supplied cord.
    o I've tried ALL the USB ports.
    o I've stopped and restarted Apple support utlities then rebooted PC. (Multiple times)
    o I've uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes. (Shut down PC after uninstall. Deleted Apple directory from AppData. Shut down PC agan. Downloaded iTunessetup then reinstalled.)
    o Another iTunes (same version) PC recognizes my Touch and wants to sync it.
    What's changed since the last successful sync?
    o Updated Windows to 8.1.
    o Updated iTunes to 11.1.3.8.
    o I have disabled some irritating Dell run-in-background utilities. (The PC is a Dell Inspiron 14R.)
    Short of buying a new iPod Touch, what do I need to do to get my Touch synced?
    Thank you.

    The following steps worked for me:
    1. Uninstall iTunes.
    2. Uninstall Apple Application Support
    3. Uninstall Apple Mobile Device Support.
    4. Uninstall Apple Software Update
    5. Uninstall Bonjour.
    ==> In summary, uninstall EVERYTHING Apple. (I left Quicktime installed as a gamble and won.)
    6. Reboot PC.
    7. Open Windows File Explorer and go to the C: drive.
    8. Delete any folders with a name that includes "Apple" in Program Files.
    9. Delete the Bonjour folder from Program Files.
    10. Delete any folders with a name that includes "Apple" in Program Files (x86).
    11. Delete the Bonjour folder from Program Files (x86).
    12. Delete any folders with a name that includes "Apple" in ProgramData.
    13. Delete any folders with a name that includes "Apple" in Users\username\AppData\Local.
    14. Delete any folders with a name that includes "Apple" in Users\username\AppData\LocalLow.
    15. Delete any folders with a name that includes "Apple" in Users\username\AppData\Roaming.
    ==> In summary, wander around the C: drive and delete any folders that have "Apple" in their name wherever you can find them. (There should be no folders with 'iTunes" in their name except possibly in Music. That can be left. So can all the folders named "iPod Photo Cache" in Pictures.)
    16. Reboot PC.
    17. Now that any known association with Apple has been removed from the PC, re-install iTunes. (Note: It may be necessary to re-authorize the PC for any content downloaded onto the iPod.)

  • ITunes does not recognize 5th Generation video iPod in WinXp

    PROBLEM: 5G iPod not recognized in iTunes (shows as removable hard drive in My Computer) via USB on HP Pavilion Notebook running WinXP. Latest error states insufficient power to run hi speed USB device on this computer. HP support replies that installed USB should comply to 480 Mbps hi speed standard. Trying to connect iPod via firewire results in "iPod can not be connected with firewire" error. Have tried the following steps before reaching this point:
    Description of iPod: 5G, 30 gig video iPod model MA002LL contains 1.2 gig data (282 songs, 4 videos, 0 pictures)
    Action: 5G iPod worked fine until connected to download purchased music 3 weeks ago.
    Result: iPod screen shows "Do not disconnect" iTunes does not recognize iPod.
    Action: Reset iPod (iPod works fine when not connected to any computer).
    Result: same as above
    Action: Recharged iPod overnight with wall outlet to confirm full charge.
    Result: same as above
    Action: Tried to run iPod Updater but iPod was not recognized by Updater (it does recognize iPod Mini and 4G)
    Result: same as above
    Action: Reinstalled latest version of iTunes.
    Result: same as above
    Action: Reinstalled COM interface for IPod Service several times.
    Result: same as above
    Action: Ran repair maintenance on iTunes (repair successful).
    Result: same as above
    Action: Uninstalled iTunes and iPod software, deleted their folders and bin files and cleaned out Temp directory, disabled virus protection and disconnected from network. Ran Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. (Uninstall successful)
    Result: same as above
    Action: Restarted and reinstalled iTunes and iPod Updater
    Result: same as above
    Action: Diasabled all non critical items in start menu
    Result: same as above
    Action: Uninstalled all three USB controllers
    Result: same as above
    Action: Reinstalled USBs
    Result: same as above
    Action: Tried to connect by firewire
    Result: Error this device cannot be connected by IEEEE use USB cable.
    Action: Talked to HP support to confirm USB standards on Pavilion Notebook.
    Result: USB should read all 3 standard data speeds up to hi speed 480 MBps
    Action: Tried 5G iPod on 2 other PC desktops with WinXP with powered USB 2.0 ports
    Result: iPod shows "Do not disconnect" iTunes does not recognize iPod and both computers respond with the following error (which is not received on the notebook) "insufficient power to run hi speed USB device on this computer" both Desktops are older than the Notebook and have older versions of USB 2.0.
    Action: Tried it on my iMac G4 thinking I could reformat it. Mac understandably does not read it as a drive. I tried the following three connections:
    1) Firewire connection: iPod screen shows: firewire connection is not supported; 2) Powered USB port connection: drive is not recognized by Mac and iPod screen shows do not disconnect; 3) Unpowered USB port connection returns an error of "USB Low power notice" on Mac monitor and iPod screen shows menu but won't connect to Mac.
    QUESTIONS:
    Has the 5G iPod reached a point where it now pulls too much power to be read by USB? Is HP not giving me correct specs regarding the performance of the Notebook's USB? Why can I update my iPods with firewire on my Mac but not the PC? Any suggestions regarding what I should try next?
    Thanks.
    HP Pavilion dv notebook Windows XP

    Solution was found: HP was encountering a conflict with a trial version of Symantec Security Center and Norton Anti-Virus causing an incomplete install of iTunes.
    The following actions resolved the problem. Uninstalled both Symantec applications, uninstalled QuickTime 6*, installed QuickTime 7.1.3 (iTunes would not install successfully prior to this step, seems redundant but worked), installed iTunes 7.1 (with Quicktime 7.1.3 again), connected iPod 5G which was finally recognized, received error that iPod was currupted, restored iPod and is now working fine.
    I hope that this helps someone else with similar video iPod problems.

    After updating iTunes this week Windows 8 recognizes the iPod but does not offer an option to open with iTunes. iTunes does not recognize iPod Touch. Have followed all the steps but without success. Is there a solution with iTunes?

    I followed all the instructions on the suggested page. Many files in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\ and C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\ could not be deleted. Message said ""Cannot delete files: It is being used by another person or program"' but could not find iPodService.exe in task manager (also, the "Cannont delete ... " did not mention iPodService.exe).
    Deleted all that I could. Reinstalled iTunes. Still same result. iTunes and computer both recognize my old iPod. Only the computer recognizes iPod Touch.

  • Brand new Ipod touch bought yesterday - Screen is frozen with an itunes emblem and cable. Unable to refresh or restore ipod. Computer and itunes does not recognize ipod.

    This is first Ipod for me  - I have had less than one day. Screen is frozen with itunes emblem and cable. Unable to refresh/restore or do anything with ipod. I turn off/on and get the same frozen screen. My computer does not recognize ipod. Itunes does not recognize ipod so I cannot restore.... Should I take this ipod back and get a new one? Is this normal?

    Before you can use the iPod you have to activate it by connecting it to a computer with iTunes.  Try the following to get your computer to see the iPod so you can activate the iPod.
