Apple mobile device USB Driver won't install (Code 37) on my 7th Generation iPod Nano

As a result, iTunes won't detect my iPod. But the iPod will charge when I plug it in to my comp, and there is an iPod folder in "My Computer". But after installing iTunes, it no longer says “connected” on the iPod (even though it still charges it). And, in Device manager, there is a yellow exclamation mark that appears in the DVD/CD-ROM drive directly after installing iTunes – there is also a yellow mark next to “Apple mobile device USB Driver” when my iPod is plugged in. For both, it says “Code 37.” I know how to fix the DVD/CD-ROM drive problem (by deleting the filters) but the Apple driver still won't install after that. I've tried troubling shooting this. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, but it hasn't made a difference. And I've uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes multiple times, too, and every time I reinstall iTunes the same thing happens: my iPod no longer says “connected on the screen,” and the  DVD/CD-ROM drive gets code 37 again. Also, I tried different USB cables/ports.
Any help of suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And I think I've already read a lot of troubleshooting guides on this site, but haven't had any success so far.

Sorry, I'm confused. What do you mean by “leaving all other USB devices disconnected”? Does that include my mouse, keyboard, etc? And does that mean I uninstall those things in the device manager?

    I've followed the steps to stop and restart Apple Mobile Device Service.  I've deleted 3rd party software I thought would conflict.  I uninstalled/reinstalled ITunes several times, but it will not recognize my iPod.

    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 section Install missing components may help if a particular component will not install when using the main iTunes setup program.
    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.

  • Cannot install Apple Mobile Device USB Driver

    When I open iTunes my iPhone 4S will not show up as a device. I have tried the advice provided by Apple. I have gone through the iPhone Troubleshooting Assistant. That gave no solutions. I have tried the other solutions offered by Apple. I think that I have possibly identified the problem. As far as I know the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is not installed on my computer. I have tried to install it but when I do I receive an error message. I repeat the entire error message in the following paragraph. The message appears in a dialogue box with the name: "Update Driver Software - iPhone".
    "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device. Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. Apple Mobile Device USB Driver. Access is denied. If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software."
    I cannot find a solution to this problem on Apple's website. How can I get this driver installed?
    My version of iTunes is current. My PC's operating system is Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2.

    if you haven't resolved that issue , i had the same problem and after 2 days working on it i found a solution , windows security wasn't letting me chage permisions or install any new software here's what i did :
    1- control panel
    2- system and security
    3- under windows  firewall click on allow a program over windows firewall
    4- what i did was click on every single box there is on private not public
    5- click accept , after i  went to device manager right click iphone update driver  , you shouldn't have the access denied anymore

  • Apple mobile device USB driver is missing and cannot be installed

    Hi,
    My iPod nano (6th gen) is not recognised by iTunes but is recognised by Windows sometimes (once in 2-3 attempts).
    Every time I connect my iPod to my laptop, a window pops up saying "an iPod is detected but could not be identified properly...".
    I looked through apple support page and narrowed down the cause to the driver.
    Apple mobile device USB driver does not show up in Device Manager.
    However iPod does show up under Portable Devices as a camera when iPod is recognised by Windows.
    I tried reinstalling Apple Mobile Device USB Driver as it was shown in the support page (right click on iPod in Device Manager>update driver software>...).
    This did not work (gave me an error saying "the folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device...".
    So I tried another method I found online; extract iTunes installer (itunes6464setup.exe), extract AppleMobileDeviceSupport6464.msi in it, and use the files in it to update driver.
    This gave me the same error.
    It seems that a Windows driver is installed for my iPod (WPD FileSystem Volume Driver); when I opt for "search automatically" in Uptade driver software, this driver shows up with the message "the best driver for your device is already installed".
    Also, my iPod is shown in Devices and Printers with an exclamation mark (when I connect my iPod to my laptop, the exclamation mark shows up only after I click OK on the message window "an iPod is detected but could not be identified properly...")
    Troubleshoot showed "Windows is uninstalling this device (Code 21)".
    I'd appreciate it if someone could help with the situation.
    I'm using Windows 8.1, iTunes 12.1 for Windows 64bit, and iPod nano 6th gen.
    I haven't connected my iPod to my laptop for a long while, but I recall connecting an iPhone to my laptop a while ago and it was recognised just fine.
    After that I updated my Windows from 8 to 8.1, but I don't think it has anything to do with the problem as my iPod wasn't recognised by iTunes before and after the update.
    Thank you in advance!

    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    If the advice above doesn't resolve things you could try this alternate version:
    iTunes 12.1.0.71 for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) - itunes64setup.exe (2015-01-28)
    which is a 64-bit installer for the 32-bit version of the core application, similar to previous 64-bit releases. Or roll back to the previous build:
    iTunes 12.0.1.26 for Windows (32-bit) - iTunesSetup.exe (2014-10-16)
    iTunes 12.0.1.26 for Windows (64-bit) - iTunes64Setup.exe (2014-10-16)

  • Unable to install Itunes 10.1 or 10.1.1  -Apple Mobile Device USB Driver

    Unable to install Itunes 10.1 or 10.1.1 and have it sucesfully install the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver. It keeps coming up with an error that the driver is unsigned or disappears completely from device manager.
    I have tried full uninstall including cleaning registry keys and file system. If I uninstall and re-install 9.2.1 usb driver works perfectly and I have no issues synching with phone or seeing the phone in Itunes.
    I have tried repair installs, updating the drivers by pointing to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers
    I have tried removing all USB devices and having them reinstall from Windows after a reboot. Nothing seems to work.
    I just got a new IPAD and cannot use it because I cannot install 10.1 at least to have it connect. It came with IOS 4.2.1 on it.

    I also encountered the same problem.
    and yes, I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes 10.1.1 bla bla blahhh....
    Same issue!!! itunes cannot open cuz the mobile device support not started etc..
    but when reinstalled prior itunes version 9.2 its gone
    and issue fixed.
    i can sync my 3G.
    but not my 4G. it says you need to upgrade to 10.1 or above
    spending the whole night to fix the problem which never occured b4
    i finally find out one thing.
    pl keep in mind im not a computer exprt
    i tried this and it worked, i don know what fixed it, bt it works
    try this at your own risk. some comp genius will tell us weather this way is right or not.
    ok. lets start...
    in your desktop make a new folder. name it Kmh_\CoreFP
    try uninstalling the newer version 10.1
    only the itunes not other mobile div suprt, application suprt etc.
    dont mind the following order:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923
    and reinstall itunes 9.2
    go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple
    you wil find a folder named "CoreFP"
    copy it and paste to Kmh_\CoreFP
    uninstall itunes 9.2
    and reinstall itunes 10.1 again
    go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple
    you wil find folder named "CoreFP"
    find the difference in properties comparing the one u stored in Kmh_\CoreFP
    ok delete it and replace it with the one we stored stored in Kmh_\CoreFP
    restart the computer and start itunes now
    what happens?
    best of luck.
    -Kmhm63
    reinstall the newer version 10.1
    I would suggest that you revert back to prior working version until Apple comes out with an update that fixes what 10.1.1 broke.

    You need to completely uninstall iTunes from your computer and then download and install it again.
    You do know that Microsoft has a web site, right?

  • IPhone 6, iOS 8 - Apple Mobile Device USB Driver wont install

    Ive just purchased an iPhone 6 from the Apple store. Of course because its the latest model its running the latest iOS (iOS 8.0).
    I tried connecting it to my computer with the included USB lightening cable. My computer attempted to install the driver and then the error message appeared "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver install was not successful".
    I have tried another USB port. I also tried a solution from a previous similar topic on the Apple discussion threads that suggested uninstalling iTunes & the 3 Apple software additions: Apple Application Support, Apple Software Update, Apple Mobile Device Support.
    Once the above software was uninstalled i connected my iPhone6 via USB to my computer and device manager read it fine. I assumed my issue was resolved so i continued to reinstall iTunes once again. Once all complete i connected once more and the original error reoccurred.
    Is this an issue with just iPhone6 models, iOS8 users or is there an underlying problem?

    OK.  I found my answer, thanks to another posting.

  • The "Unable to install Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" problem

    Ever since I installed iTunes 10, I've had nothing but problems. I tried every fix I could find on the internet, unfortunately there are not too many, Apple's own website has loads of fixes but they never work.
    I keep getting the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver come up in Device Manager with a little yellow exclamation mark and nothing I seem to do can fix it properly. I managed to fix it once, my iPod was synced and all was good, but once I restarted my PC, the problems started again. And I tried my friends iPhone which works perfectly and the same problem came up on my PC.
    Cant someone give me a proper fix please?

    I had the same problem with my iTouch when I upgraded to iTunes 10. I'm not sure if my problem was the same as with the nano but every time I reinstalled iTunes and plugged in my Touch, I got an error message for driver installation and the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver in Device Manager with a little yellow exclamation mark. The error message that came up stated something about the digital signature of the driver not being right. The fix that worked for me was as follows:
    Delete the 2 Apple Mobile Device USB Driver files. If you right click on the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver in Device Manager and select properties it will tell you where they are located in the windows folder. My 2 files for windows 7 64 bit were:
    usbaapl64.sys
    usbaaplrc.dll
    With ipod disconnected, restart computer and press F8 to enter boot menu.
    Select boot option without digital driver signature support.
    After boot, connect ipod and driver should automatically install correctly without error.
    Good Luck
    I called Apple and they would not provide any unpaid support for iTunes issues.

  • TS1538 What do I do after step 6 in "If the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is not listed"?

    i'm very confused about step 5, "Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed" > "If the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is not listed", what do I do after step 6? I looked for and found the entry that recognizes the device as a camera, "Apple iPhone, now what? I'm trying to resolve an issue. After an iTunes upgrade in July 2012, I have not been able to get my iTunes to recognize any of my devices. I have uninstalled/reinstalled iTunes, all the steps. Now I'm on this one and I don't know what to do after this step 6. I looked and found the entry.... now what??? I am out of room on my phone because everything I buy on iTunes on the computer mysteriously appears on my iPhone 4, and everything I buy on my iPhone mysteriously uploads onto my iTunes the next time I open it. My phone will charge when connected to the computer, and Windows recognizes it and asks how I want to open pictures, etc. But in iTunes it will not show up under Devices. This is getting beyond ridiculous and I have to get some of this music off of my phone!

    Found a possible solution for me.
    While the phone was plugged into my computer and iTunes is CLOSED.
    1. I went to Services in Windows.
    2. I selected Apple Mobile Device and right clicked and selected "Stop".
    3. Then I right-clicked again and selected "Start".
    4. Then I went to Device Manager and right clicked my iPhone with the yellow alert icon and selected "Uninstall".  You will get a warning about uninstalling the device.  Click OK.
    5.  At the top of Device Manager I clicked the Action menu and selected "Scan for Hardware Changes".
    This re-installed the iPhone and everything started working again.
