Ipod nano not being recongized by computer

Hey guys, i just recently got a new HP computer with windows 7 and installed itunes on it, however my computer would not find my ipod at all. The only time it finds it is during start up and the second the users kick in it ejects its self from the computer. if anyone could help me figure this out or point me in the direction of something all ready posted that would be great. thanks

Hi J_Mart,
If you have just recently purchased a new computer, that may be the source of the problem. Did your iPod do this with your old computer? If not, your HP may be the problem. If this is the case, you may want to post this problem on the HP discussion boards also.

  • New Ipod Nano not being recognized by Computer

    It seems I am not the only one having this annoying issue. My new Ipod Nano (3rd Generation) will not show up at all in Itunes. I never get the setup assistant to show up either. I have tried different USB ports, shutting down and restarting the computer, reloading itunes, etc. What's next? I am new to the whole ipod thing so if I need to do something I don't know about, please let me know.

    You're right, you're not the only person having this problem. If you don't mind though, could you just stick to bumping the other thread? I'll get you the link, one second.

  • Ipod nano not being seen by computer, windows, 2000...

    after over a week on the phone and attemting to get my computer to "see" my nano, and not being able to do so. and after going thru every trouble shooting guide given to me by apple i did get my nano to work.
    I used every usb port but two, the two off the mother board, when i used one of them the nano took off and worked liked it was susposed to do, so...... you people who have this problem or know others pass the word use the mother board usb ports. nothing else.......

    i resolved my computer, windows 2000, not seeing by i pod nano, by using the usb ports from the mother board. use no other usb ports, not usb hubs, or other circurt ports, just mother ports..................

  • Ipod nano not being recognised by computer, 5th gen

    my ipod is not beng recognised by my laptop as my ipod will not turn on and is charged and is also not being recgonised by any other devices such as docking stations. It will not reset for me and have tried numerous links online, please help???!!!!

    If the iPod isn't powering on and you are positive that you are using a working USB cable and plugging the iPod into a working USB port or wall adapter, it could be a sign of some hardware issue with the iPod such as a dead battery or damaged/faulty logic board.

  • I recently upgraded to iTunes 11.1.5 and now my iPod Nano is not recognized in iTunes. I also upgraded my iPhone 5s to iOS 7.1. i Tunes on my computer does recognize my iPhone. What is the problem with my iPod Nano not being recognized?

    I recently upgraded to iTunes 11.1.5 and now my iPod Nano is not recognized in iTunes. I also upgraded my iPhone 5s to iOS 7.1. i Tunes on my computer does recognize my iPhone. What is the problem with my iPod Nano not being recognized?

    I would think, Twins1995, that if we are having the problem, others are as well. Hopefully, Apple will shortly issue a follow-up software release to fix the problem. Or is that just wishful thinking on my part.
    It would be helpful, if there were some kind of work-around in the interim, so we can use our devices. Pretty frustrating when you consider that all of the hardware and software is produced by Apple.

  • Why is my old ipod nano not being recognized by my computer as being connected?

    my older ipod nano stopped being recognised as connected to my computer. it has also stopped being recognised on my xbox 360 arcade version. please advise on what to do

    I have also tried a different cable and giving it a brief charge before attempting to connect to the computer. There has been no problems connecting my iPad using the same cable or USB port and the issue remains the iPod.

  • Help.. brand new Ipod 80gb not being recognised by Computer or itunes

    Replaced a ipod mini that was stolen from my house with a brand new 80gb ipod. Plugged it into the same computer that had been used successfully with the mini and the ipod will not be seen by either the computer or itunes. It will charge through the usb post no problem but when you plug it in it originally came up with the windows new hardware wizard, as apple have for some misguided reason stopped supplying CD's, the wizard can not find the correct driver, and fails to install. When Itunes is running nothing appears. I have been through the 5 R's, or should I say 4 r's as the fifth rely's on itunes recognizing the ipod before you can restore, countless time, so please unless you are sure don't ask me to click the hold button on and off yet again.
    Plugged the ipod into an old laptop with USB 1.0 ports and the ipod was recognized which would suggest it is my main comp's usb ports that are at fault, but as two previous ipod mini's worked without fault I find this hard to believe. I think if only I had the correct driver to install I could solve this problem easily. Can anyone send me the correct driver for an 80gb ipod.
    It hopefully goes without saying that I have downloaded the latest itunes software and gone through all the post's on the this site. I thought I'd cracked it with the UBSSORT file post but it was not to be....to tell you the truth if it's this complicated I'd rather send it back and buy a sony mp3 or even an ipod nano. At my wits end so please help Obi one, your my only hope

    Big Big thank you to Varun at Apple Service & Support e-mailed me the following article and after following the instructions, I'm up and running. Thank you ......

  • Ipod nano not being recognized since update

    Ok, so everything was fine until i had to update my ipod nano(right around when the updated itunes came out). Since then, my ipod nano would connect sometimes, for a min. or two, or not at all. Now, it wont even connect, light up, charge, anything! It's not being recognized by My Computer, Windows, nothing.
    I have tried reinstalling the software with the instilation disc, but all it did was pop up with an error saying im missing some file, and that only happened once. I know that its not the cable because the charger works and i know its not the usb port because other things still work in it. Also, i have plugged it into the back usb port, to no avail.

    Hey i am having exactly the same problem its really strange!! I have tried everything i can think of to fix it, reinstalling the USB drives and everything but it still wont recognise my ipod! HELP!!

  • IPod touch not being rcognized by computer or iTunes anymore.

    My iPod touch is not being recognized by my computer or iTunes anymore. I can't add new music to it and in order to charge it I have to hook it up to a different computer, other computers do recognize it, just not mine. I have tried different cables (They're not damaged either), it's not my USB ports (I have 3 USB ports, I have tried all of them, still wont recognize the iPod) because they recognize other devices and I am able to use them just fine. The port on my iPod is not damaged. HELP! I've never had an issue like this and I really don't want to have to buy a new iPod!

    Have you looked at this article:

    I'm not sure if it charged when I hooked it up to my roommate's computer, but it definately didn't register either. If I put it on the dock it plays so the port is fine, but that still doesn't help me sync it to my computer.

  • Ipod Nano not recognized on my computer

    My iPod Nano doesn't show up on My Computer or in the ITunes store under devices.
    A popup recommends reconnecting the device but it does not help.  It then says to uninstall and reinstall Itunes.
    This device used to be recognized on a different pc but we changed out pcs.  Is a Nano only supposed to be recognized on only one Pc?

    Try one or more of the following
    > Restart your computer
    > Uninstall & Reinstall iTunes - Windows XP | Windows Vista or 7 | Mac OS X
    > Reset iPod (will not delete everything)
    > Go to My Computer (Windows XP) or Computer (Windows Vista or 7) and see if iDevice shows
    > Restore iPod (will delete everything)
    > Make sure iTunes and/or iOS firmware is up to date

  • New Ipod nano not recognized by my computer, asking for disk!!`

    I bought my husband a new nano for Father's Day. I am having serious problems installing it through itunes. We have two other nanos that gave us no problem. Our computer keeps saying to put in the CD, and when I check the device manager under my computer, it says the driver is missing for this ipod. I would appreciate any computer savvy help with how to remedy this problem. Thanks
