  • 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.

  • 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

  • IPod Frozen and Not Being Recognized in iTunes

    I have two problems.
    1. My iPod is frozen. It says it's playing and it's not. Tried the toggle hold on and off trick then tried hold the play and the middle button down to reset and restore, but nothing happens.
    2. The iPod isn't being recognized by iTunes. HELP!

    The select button + menu button thing worked, I just realized that when I was trying it before the hold was still on (since I was "toggling it"). I feel stupid...

  • TS1369 iPod Classic suddenly not being recognized in iTunes on MacBook Pro

    I just got a new MacBook Pro a few weeks ago, and have had no issues connecting my iPod Classic to it via iTunes. Yesterday, however, my iPod stopped registering in iTunes. I checked in the System Reports on my MacBook, and I can see that the USB Hub is acknowledging that the iPod is there, AND the iPod is charging when connected so I know it's not a connection issue with the cord, however the iPod still isn't registering in iTunes. If I plug up my iPhone, though, it shows up so it's likely not the computer either. My iPod is working fine and has been connecting fine until yesterday morning when it suddenly just didn't apear anymore. I need to fix it ASAP! Help!

  • My ipod shuffle is not being recognized by Itunes.

    I tried all the steps in the Apple troubleshooting guide, no luck.  I'm operating a PC, the current version if ITunes and a Version 4 Shuffle.  Can anyone suggest a fix?  Thanks! 

    If you see it in Windows as the F drive, that is good.  So, I wonder why you are not able to follow the procedure to re-assign the drive letter.  If Windows sees the iPod's disk, it should appear in Disk Management. 
    Try shutting down the computer, and disconnecting all USB devices, including hub.  Start up the computer with only standard keyboard and mouse connected, if normally used.  Do this to Reset the shuffle
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1655
    Run iTunes.  Connect shuffle to a direct USB port on the computer (the one you use with your iPod touch).

  • My iPod Touch is not being recognized by iTunes.

    I already went through all the sugested tips such as restarting the 'Apple Mobile Device' and updating my computer's softwear. I restarted my computar many times, but nothing is being fixed. Help

    Have you tried this:
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    Does it charge?
    Tried anohter cable?
    Another USB port?
    Try another computer to help determine if you have an iPod or computer problem.

  • My ipod nanos are not being recognized in iTunes. I have tried everything! Changed the drive letter, the disk to FAT32, resetted it, downloaded itunes again, but nothing has worked! HELP please.

    Somehow my nano now lost all its music so now its empty!  Also, before windows used to recognize my ipod and i'd get a pop up saying "open to view files" but now I don't even get that anymore. I have also tried syncing it by putting them in disk mode but NOTHING has worked. I am getting so frustrated.
    I followed all of the "steps" on the apple support page but none of that has worked too. PLEASE help me because I literally feel like just throwing my ipods out the window. I never had this problem before.

    When you connect your iPod to your PC, what appears on the iPod's display?  Does the iPod charge when you have it plugged into the PC?
    Are you running the latest version of iTunes (10.6.3)?  It wouldn't hurt to also make sure your Windows OS has all of the latest patches and updates as well.
    I assume you have plugged the iPod ino different USB ports located directly on your PC and tried using another 30 pin dock connector cable to rule out the possibility of a bad cable?

  • HT1369 Ipod touch not being recognized by itunes (but is registering as an external drive by the computer itself) have updated and reinstalled itunes, stopped/started apple mobile device and removed and mobile programs associated with my non apple cellpho

    Ipod touch not being recognized by itunes (but is registering as an external drive by the computer itself) have updated and reinstalled itunes, stopped/started apple mobile device and removed any mobile programs associated with my non apple cellphone. This seems to have started happening after the last Itunes update I did as I was able to put music on my ipod touch a month or so ago. Is there some way to go back to an older version of itunes? I really have no idea what else to do since I followed every step on the trouble shooting page for windows 8.

    I had this problem too and my roommate solved it!
    Go to 'Settings'
    'Music'
    Scroll to the bottom and enter your password to log onto your home sharing
    Then connect to iTunes and sync!
