Good Day,

I have 2 other ipods in use and performing without flaw.
I purchased a new 16 Gb nano 5th generation that I have been unable to get o to connect and sync with my computer.

My computer detects new hardware, but when I click for windows to search for driver automatically is says it was unable to find a driver, even if I point to System32 same thing.
Device manager shows under other devices: iPod with a yellow question mark on it.
If I plug any of the other two ipods I have they work perfectly.

Running Vista Businness SP2.

Please some help.

Thanks in advance.

1) Make sure you have all your Windows software, and Apple (iTunes, Quicktime, etc.) updated. Restart your computer.

2) Make sure your iPod isn't set to Drive C:.

3) Reinstall iPod drivers.

This normally happens because of hardware/software conflicts. So you might have to try a couple things.

Hope this helps! :thumbsup:

Toop4,

Problem is Windows detects, some times, this 3rd Ipod and starts installing the driver.
Then says is unable to locate the driver, really strange.

Thanks
