Windows 7-64bit, iPod shuffle (red) plugged into usb, the device manager says code 21, uninstalling.  This used to be fine until itunes software following v9.  It now even hangs the computer when trying to wake up the USB device randomly.  The USB Port should look fine in the Device Manager (and used to).  Now, there is a problem.


iPod works and is syncable and all that, but still... it's not making windows happy.  If I eject the iPod and remove it, the Device Manager is happy.  I have latest drivers, and iTunes.


Any ideas for how to fix, and how to keep it from preventing my computer to unlock when I log in (after screenlock activates)?


Much appreciated.

iPod shuffle, Windows 7, Dell XPS 8000, 2.3GHz,4Core,16GBRAM
