Windows Vista: Ipod Error Message, no longer read by PCs

I have a 5th generation black ipod video with 30GB of memory.
The other day I hooked it up to my laptop (Toshiba, 4 months old) that it's been functioning on with no problems whatsoever. This weird error message flashed twice about it not being able to sync because of some software problem.
Eversince then, the only thing I can charge my ipod on is the family treadmill in the basement (~_~) as no other computer in the house recognizes it. I can't even charge it through the wall sockets, either.
I have changed the ipod cord, still no luck. I've also reset the device about 3 or 4 times and uninstalled, restarted the laptop then reinstalled itunes. I would like to reset it back to factory settings but that's impossible as computers/laptops don't pick it up. I live very far from a Mac store...
What's a girl to do? I can't live without my Busta Rhymes and Wu-Tang Clan!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

you have to update Vista go to this site and up-date

  • When I connect my iTouch to my PC (windows 7) an error message is displayed reading "iTunes was unable to load dataclass information from sync services. Reconnect or try again later".

    When I connect my iTouch to my PC (windows 7) an error message is displayed reading "iTunes was unable to load dataclass information from sync services. Reconnect or try again later". I have completely uninstalled and then reinstalled iTunes. I have also completely reset my iTouch to factory defaults. I have even followed all the advice provided previously to other forum member with the same problem. Nothing seems to work. Please help me someone.

    I'm getting the same problem with both my IPad 4 and iPhone 5
    Just started a few weeks back, Since then I have had two Itunes updates.
    Is this something Apple is aware of and trying to fix?

  • AS10. on Windows Vista --- helpful error message (not!)

    Guessing Oracle still hasn't certified AS10. on Windows Vista. Tried to run installer using "setup -ignoreSysPrereqs" starts the installer but the first thing I see is
    Abnormal program termination. An internal error has occurred. Please provide the following files to Oracle Support:
    “Unknown”Can somebody tell me where I can find the file "Unknown" ?
    Or even better, how much longer it'll take before Vista certification becomes a reality?

    Yep - already installed Centos4 on VMWare server for that purpose. Standalone Java stuff etc. simply works on Vista --- so I took my chances for the complete (bloated) stuff as well on that platform. Should have known better.

  • Why can't i download adobe reader  on my windows vista. Error message is invalid key

    I can not download Adobe reader. The installation begins, but then I get the message that the key is invalid. I don't know what means or how to correct it. How can I get a vaid key.

    That is a problem caused by Microsoft or one of their recent updates.  Here is the solution
    in the Windows Explorer address bar type %APPDATA%
    on the right-hand side double-click on the Microsoft folder
    now look for a folder named Crypto; delete it, or rename it to something like Crypto-old
    If you need more detailed help, tell us your Windows version.

  • Windows Blue Screen Error Message Appears As Soon As IPod Connected

    Everytime I connect my IPod to my computer, I get the Windows Blue Screen error message. Thought it was the cable, so plugged cable in by itself. No problem. Uninstalled IPod and ITunes software and then plugged in IPod, still got the Blue Screen. The Blue Screen says something about "recent plugged in device problem". It is not the cable, it must be the IPod. Did not have this problem when I bought it. Tried it on labtop and get the same error message. I can't do updater or anything that requires me to plug the IPod into a computer because the Blue Screen appears immediately. When I unplug, the Blue Screen remains and locks up the computer so I have to restart each time. I have tried everything I can think of. Please help.

    Hi Mike thank you for replying,
    I am not able to start the computer in safe mode, safe mode with networking, last good known configuration etc, Each time it quickly blue screens and restarts about two secs into the process.
    I was unable to try a clean OS install from the disk as it gave the blue screen error shown in the original post. The same thing happened when I tried to use the repair option on the XP home disc. So i can't get into the computer at all to start diagnosing the fault, the only clue I have is the error message, and after searching the internet I haven't found much enlightenment from that yet.
    If you can help me out or suggest where to search it would be much appreciated.

  • Error message: "iTunes cannot read the contents of the iPod."

    I wanted to get my dad a new iPod for Xmas and transfer all his music from his ancient Classic. But when I connect to my MacBookPro, I get the error message: "iTunes cannot read the contents of the iPod." I see that 90% of the ipod drive is used, but I don't see any songs listed either on the iPod screen or in iTunes, which is worrying. Is there anything I can to save the music? He will be so upset that it's all gone...

    My suggestions, when Restoring the iPod.
    Disconnect your PC from Internet. (just to make sure no nasties creep into your system while you syncing.
    Stop the Antivirus program
    Connect your iPod to the PC, using a high speed USB 2.0 port at the back of your PC.
    Disconnect all other USB devices, except the mouse and keyboard.
    Stop all other programs except iTunes.
    Good Luck!

  • I've deleted Adobe Reader 11 and rebooted and reinstalled Adobe Reader 11 and I still get the error message that 'Adobe Reader is blocked because it is out of date'. Using Windows XP with the latest updates (SP3).

    Screenshots attached to email replies will not make it back to the forum; you need to login to the forum and post it in your topic using the camera icon in the editor.
    Google Chrome is a problem:
    if you use Chrome's own PDF viewer, the results are unpredictable.
    if you use the Adobe Reader plugin with Chrome, it may reject (block) it if it is not the latest version.  Reader 11.0.08 is the latest version for Windows XP, but Chrome may insist on the current version 11.0.10.
    My suggestion; use a different browser!

  • Windows vista, internet explorer 8 and adobe reader 9

    I have windows vista, internet explorer 8 and adobe reader 9.  When i open pdf files from a website i cannot save the document.  I don't get an error message, it just does not open.

    Have you tried capturing these application in separate packages?  I have been successful in capturing IE8 in one package and Adobe Reader XI in another package and then using the OptionalAppLinks option in the IE8 package to point to the Adobe Reader dat file.  Just make sure that both packages work outside of the applinking.  Also, you can try to install Adobe to the native machine and see if the embedded pdfs work in the virtual IE package. 
    These are just the troubleshooting steps that I would take to narrow down what is causing the issue you are seeing.

  • CM1312 NFP: WIndows 7: USB Error message ~"Lost Connection"

    With the 1312 connected to my Windwos 7 desktop, periodically Windows gives an error message that indicates that it has lost connection to the printer.  Unplugging and replugging the USB cable fixes the problem.  Otherwise the print & scan functions work perfectly.  Symptomatically it appears as if the printer goes to sleep and stops responding to whatever "keep alive" messages Windows might be sending.  Is there a setting in the printer, in Windows or in the printer driver software that can prevent this message?
    BTW, the other way to work around this problem is to just access the printer via the Ethernet but the scan funciton is not accessible via the network (an unfortunate limitation).

    I am sorry, but to get your issue more exposure I would suggest posting it in the commercial forums since this is a commercial printer. You can do this at .
    I hope this helps.
