I have owned an I-pod for a while now and have had no problems with registering it on my PC (I have windows 2004). I have now purchased a second I-pod and want to run it from the same PC. I had trouble registering it initially probably due to the fact that I did'nt research how to do this properly and went at it like a bull in a china shop!

I ended up un-installing I-tunes from my PC and then re-installing it under a second user name and the new I-pod serial number.

This still has'nt worked, somehow I-tunes still works with my old I-pod but when I connect my new I-pod (the details of which are registered in I-tunes) it comes up saying I-tunes is corrupt.

Any ideas? I've looked on apple.com but their advice still did'nt work.

I'm very frustrated, please help!

TBH, this isn't my "area of expertise", but if it were me, I'd try pluggin the second I tunes into a different USB slot, one that hasn't had the original Ipod plugged into it. I've seen crazy things when it comes to devices attached via USB.

If this doesn't work, post back and some one else will try to help you.

Hope this helps (and good luck!)!!!!! :thumbsup:

Thanks stevealmighty but I had already tried that 1. Does anyone else have any ideas, surely it can't be that difficult. I'm on the verge of selling my new Nano on E-bay, its that serious!

Thanks :thumbsup:
