USB Device Not Recognized

Guest

When I plug my iPod into any USB port on my Windows XP computer, Windows
displays "USB Device Not Recognized." Troubleshooting leads to a message
saying "No drivers found." Other devices work with these ports (Both 2.0 and
1.1 USB ports). The Device Manager lists all as working properly.

I ran a USB Evaluation Utility--all drivers etc etc are compatible and
working properly.

I checked out the iPod on a different PC (Windows XP)--no problems at all.
Software on it is up to date. I reinstalled iTunes.

All MS updates are installed.

Help!

Some front USB port have no enough voltage, please try the back USB
port.
I met the problems ago, and fixed with this method.

I have just this sminute posted about this and to this group and also
to the MS drivers group.

In my case it is the printer which is not being recognized after a
year of it being ok.

I too have taken the latest patches. I left out that Windows key
check verification patch. Did you?

They may not have enough power to charge the battery (however I've yet
to see one that didn't) but always they will be powered to recognize the
drive.
Try rebooting with the iPod connected. And maybe you need to reset the
iPod. It's different on different generations. I think the color is menu and
FF simultaneously while connected to the USB. Post back.

This worked, thanks. Unfortunately, it doesn't work consistently. Would
installing a USB board solve this problem?

What OS are you using. You said XP...just verifying. XP shipped with the USB
Mass Storage Driver which is what the iPod (along with a multitude of other
HDD and static drive devices) uses. I use W98 for the iPod and I don't use
iTunes. Too much spy ware. I use Anapod. I have a few iPods of different
denominations and I always had trouble setting them up in XP before adopting
them to W98.
The worst trouble I had was with my daughters Dell 1GB intel machine. I
finally gave up and set it up on a friends HP XP machine. Then, once setup I
was able to get it recognized on her Dell. Never did figure that one out. It
was a color though. Now it recognizes fine on her Dell and charges...the
whole nine yards.
I suggest you set Power Management to spin down the HDD and shut down
the monitor but never stand by the system and never hibernate and leave your
iPod plugged in to charge and reboot with it plugged in a few times. Of
course, you'll need to check MSConfig and see if all is correct there. That
is probably where the issue lies. If the system goes into stand by or sleep
or whatever then charging will postpone until the system is awakened unless
set as above.
If you don't have iTunes set to run in the background (why would you)
then you will probably need to enable it in MSConfig prior to plugging in
the iPod or you may experience no recognition.

Try updating the BIOS from the computer manufacturer. I was successful with
downloading an upgrade to the BIOS as a solution to my issue with the USB
ports on my notebook. Toshiba was very aware of this issue and was quick to
help me out.
Good luck
