Ive got a 120GB Ipod Video from a friend as a gift

My problem starts when I plug my Ipod Video my desktop
It then goes USB Device Not Recognized even Itunes does not recognize it
Ive got and Ipod Shuffle too and it works fine

Steps ive taken so far

Uninstalled and reinstalled all programs by Apple twice(Itunes, Quicktime, AMDS)

Uninstalled and reinstalled USB ports

Reset my Ipod

Plugged my Ipod to all USB ports

Ive tried using it in another older P4 computer and it works fine

Tried selecting the System32 folder when it asks to manually look for the driver but to no avail

As for the Ipod it charges when I connect it but other than that it doesnt go "Connecting" screen

Ive got a Windows XP SP3

Question is does the USB port supply enough power to power on the device correctly?

Does your computers USB port have 1.0 2.0 or 3.0 and does it meet the requirements of the IPOD? Please check the specifications listed for the ipod and your computers USB ports listed in your computers owners manual.

I suggest you use a USB port located on the motherboard.

There can be issues where the other USB ports wiring for front panel access does not supply enough power to the devices connected to them.

Normally windows displays an notification icon recommending using another USB port with more power output.
