After attaching the ipod to the computer, the screen displayed

Resolved Question:

After attaching the ipod to the computer, the screen displayed "do not disconnect". And that's where it sits. It did not show up as a device, nothing showed up in itunes, the computer slowed up to the point I wondered if it was still running. Windows task manager was almost unresponsive. I tried to restart the system, that didn't work and it was necessary to use the reset button to come back up. Now what?

Hello and Thank You for letting me assist you with your issue(s).

Detach the iPod. Make sure you have the latest Ver of Itunes and try again after you reboot your Windows machine.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I've already done that. I'm at the latest version of itunes, disconnected and reconnected the ipod, after rebooting the computer and nothing. This didn't help.
Expert:  Mac Tech replied 4 years ago.
Is this the original system that you setup your iPod on?

Have you preformed a hard reset on the iPod?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
How do you perform a hard reset in the iPod? Havn't done that don't know how.
Expert:  Mac Tech replied 4 years ago.
Which model do you have?

Also, does the iPod function normally otherwise?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have the 30gb don't know if there is a model no. It functioned normally until I connected to a USB port on the computer. This is the first connection in a while, I think there has been several upgrades in iTunes since the last time I connected it. It's not functioning now, just sitting on the USB cable with screen showing do not disconnect.

I do have a couple of question

 

1) I see you are using windows 7 are you using windows 7 64bit or windows 7 32 bit?

 

2) What version of itunes are you using currently? Is it the latest?

 

Thanks these will help me solve the issues.

 

 

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Let me bring you up to date. I found the Model No. I also found on the internet how to reset the iPod. I have reset the iPod, reconnected it to the computer and iTunes is now doing something that I believe is reloading the software. I don't remember exactly what the message box said but I clicked ok. The iPod screen is flashing the red circle, and iTunes shows the iPod as an attached device. There is a icon showing something is going on. If this comes to a successful conclusion I don't think anything more is necessary. Oh yes this is Windows 7 64 bit. Itunes is 9.2.061.
Expert:  Omer Mushahwar replied 4 years ago.
Ok Let me know if it doesn't work because there have been a few issues with latest itunes and if it doesn't sync I can walk you through fixing it.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It looks like everything completed successfully. All the music and photographs have been restored.
Expert:  Omer Mushahwar replied 4 years ago.

Ok Sounds good. Glad to hear that its working

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
