Quick post before class… Vista stopped recognizing my ipod, it made the “ding” sound but didn’t show up in itunes or “My Computer”. The iPod charges but that’s about it. Thought I was doomed but after some intense googling I found this:
Don’t worry you won’t lose your data, or have to unistall anything.
I simply unplugged the ipod, restarted the computer, and then manually put the ipod into disk mode, waited for windows to load again, and plugged it in! Thats it
Disk mode -
- plug the ipod mains charger into the ipod
- click the hold button on and then off again
- press and hold menu and select together until the apple appears
- then press select and play/pause together until disk mode appers
You don’t need to restart windows to do this btw. That’s it! Time for class, iPod freshly stocked!
