The autoplay window came up and then the iPod installer said I had to restore the iPod- which I did. Then I reinstalled my music, unplugged it, and it worked fine. Then I plugged it back in and the same thing happened.
hmmm. if the SetUp assistant runs every time you plug the ipod in, check on this possibility:
Windows confuses iPod with network drive and may keep iPod from mounting or songs may seem to disappear
B- I plugged in my iPod again this morning and got the same autoplay window- and no recognition. I went in to change the drive letter of the iPod following the instructions on the link you gave me. When I pull up the disk management window, I see 2 disks listed: (C:) and (E:), but it does not say IPOD like the picture does on the help page. Should I change the drive letter anyway? Does this mean that it's not recognized as an iPod? Thanks for your help...
Also, about 3-5 minutes after the autoplay window comes up, I get an "iPod not readable" message that instructs me to open the iPod updater to restore my iPod- which I've done 5 times already.
I am having the exact same problem and have been ever since I got my iPod.
I've tried plugging it into two of my friends computers, and it worked just fine on both.
I've changed the drive letter already multiple times, but the problem still occurs. The only time it shows up in iTunes is the first time i plug it in after a restore.
sorry, lost track of the thread.
hmmmmm. just checking on one last thing with regard to the drive letter issues. are there any drive letters above the ipod that are filled? like a CD drive, or an external HD?
do you have any other USB 2.0 peripherals plugged into the PC? if so, what kind?
B- no other USB things plugged in. I'm still having problems. My computer won't recognize the iPod. The "autoplay" window comes up, or the "iPod not readable" box comes up that says that the iPod needs to be updated or restored. When I click Update, the updater box comes up and promptly freezes. I have to ctrl-alt-delete and it is not responding.
I am at my wits end and am about to run over my iPod with my car!
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
okay, something experimental.
do you seem to get any recognition if you try the workaround that coolkid and Stephen describe in this thread?
