Disconnect one of the current drive on your computer, and then connect the ipod. See if you computer can now 'see' your ipod. The ipod may be "under" one of your current drives and itunes will say something to the effect that your ipod is not correctly formated and will need to be restored. However; the problem is that there are not enought drives left for your computer to assign one to the ipod that is connecting. Just an idea.
Well I know it's not using one of my current drives but your idea totally gave me another one.
I partition my PC very weird. I don't have any drive assigned using "C." So as XP normally does it gives whatever storage device the next available letter that is not in use. Well...that was always C. For some reason this would cause the ipodservice.exe to freak out. I'm guessing it's a windows problem..
So...i connected it and assigned it a different drive letter in disk management...Itunes all the sudden sees my ipod and syncs......wow.
So looks like I learned something knew and hopefully future ppl with this problem can refer to my post.
DONT USE DRIVE LETTER C FOR YOUR IPOD IN WINDOWS XP
Thanks for getting my brain thinking flipo
