ITunes does not recognize when the Ipod is connected. Help

I have an ipod classic and only recently (Christmas 2015 day) itunes has ceased to recognize when my ipod is connected to my laptop. However, I know I tried three cables work because the ipod screen shows that it is connected and my laptop opens the file for my ipod, but this does not add to the music on it. How can I my itunes to work again?

Thank you.

It's what charge my laptop when I connect my ipod instead of loading of itunes.

For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates.

The steps described in the second case are a guide to remove everything related to iTunes and then rebuild what is often a good starting point, unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

Review the other boxes and other support documents list to the bottom of the page, in case one of them applies.

More information area has direct links with the current and recent buildings if you have problems to download, must revert to an older version or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit-for old video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with QuickTime software or a third party.

Backups of your library and device should be affected by these measures but there are links to backup and recovery advice there.

  • iTunes does not open when the option key is held

    I used to switch between my library of DJ and my sample library, hold down the Option key. Since a few days now iTunes does not display the window that allows me to choose to open or create a new library. Nothing happens. I see in the iTunes menu bar, and that's all.

    I created a new user, and it works very well with it. I deleted completely using AppCleaner, reinstalled iTunes. Firstly, it has not open at all, even without down option. I fixed this problem with the recovery of files in the iTunes library folder. But still, there's no way to see the window to choose or create a library.

    If I remember correctly, the problem appeared on my previous MBP. I've restored the TimeMachine backup on my new MBP.

    Looks like there is something wrong in my settings/system files of the user who is not reset with a new installation of iTunes.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    In general, click the icon that launches the app and immediately press and hold down the key change, alt/option on Mac, distribution on Windows. Hold the button down until you get choose it or create the dialogue of the library. If you don't get it, close iTunes (and not only the window), wait until there is a chance to close and save the library, it had just opened, and then try again.

  • Microphone does not work when the headset is connected (Windows 7 with Realtek HD Audio).

    I am a user in advance, but this got to be one of the funniest problems ever. First, I had 2 headphones with microphone.

    1. An old helmet specified with microphone
    2. A new headphones A4Tech HS-100 with microphone that I just bought
    • Using the new helmet I bought, when I plug the microphone (pink jack even) it works, but also when I plug in the headphones (same headphone jack), the microphone no longer works (cannot receive all the sounds, even if it is detected clear as already plugged) and only the work of helmet.
    The most funny thing is:
    • The old headset works fine when I plug the microphone (jack Pink) and headphones (headphones) to my ASUS N81V laptop.
    • When I plug the microphone on my laptop and plug the headphones to my iphone, the microphone and the headphones work!
    • To experiment more, my laptop has a HDMI output connected to an external HDMI monitor, when I connect the microphone on my laptop, only it works, but as soon as I connect the headphones to the headphone jack on the external HDMI monitor, the microphone works again!
    Things, I tried and does not work:
    • Maximize the microphone amp
    • Separate entry made in the audio Panel
    • Ensure the microphone is not dumb anywhere
    • Install the latest drivers from the manufacturer and realtek Web sites
    I want to get both my mic and headphones works when plugged the laptop, what exactly is the problem? Any help? Thank you very much.

    I have a similar problem with my netbook a built-in microphone running Windows Starter, that's how mine to get the fix:

    Control Panel - his - recording tab - click on Configure button - set up micro - Configuration of the Microphone Wizard.

    You'll see three choices 1. Headphones Microphone 2. Table microphone 3. Others.

    All what I have to do to fix my netbook is to select the desktop instead of headphones with Microphone Microphone (it has been revived somehow).

  • Fingerprint sensor satellite A100-912 does not correctly when the AC is connected

    I have problem with fingerprint sensor. It works fine on battery, on the current but it is impossible to connect with sensor there error message with yellow question mark of poor quality.


    This sounds really weird. If the sensor works well in battery, then it might not be defective. Maybe just a software problem, perhaps with powersaving it s.

    I suggest that you can remove all traces of fingers, remove the software and also to recover your machine to test the problem persists after you perform this action. If so, you must bring the machine to a repair center for a checkup of material.

  • iTunes does not recognize my ipod nano

    iTunes does not recognize my nano after the interview there.

    What 'maintenance' has been done for her?  What was the problem that required it to be repaired?

    If possible, try another USB docking cable to rule out a defective as cable being the cause.

    When you connect it, look at the screen of the iPod.  He said 'do not disconnect' or 'Connected' or give an indication to be connected?   Or does only show the symbol of battery?  Or not it reacts at all to be connected?

  • iTunes does not recognize the iPhone

    I use a portable Win10. Recently, I installed iTunes (version 12.4) and plugged my new iPhone (iOS 9.3.2) SE in. My computer went on the usual sounds and a folder showing my phone in the windows Explorer appeared and my phone started to load.

    But iTunes does not recognize my phone, so I can not sync with my computer. It just doesn't do anything, regardless of how many times I have re - install iTunes or plug my phone in and out.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • iTunes does not recognize my iPhone on my HP Pavilion Windows 10 5s, so cannot sync the phone, which has the latest operating system running

    iTunes does not recognize my iPhone on my HP Pavilion Windows 10 5s, so cannot sync the phone running. I downloaded the latest OS for the phone and the latest version of iTunes on my PC and have tried all USB ports several times. I also reinstalled drivers USB to the PC.  The phone is recognized on the computer of a friend under Win 7. All shows when I plug it on mine is a page showing the 'Apple iPhone' folder display of storage internal (2.18 GB free of 14.7 GB). Troubleshooting in devices and printers, where the phone displays as "Not specified Apple iPhone" generates a message saying that "Apple iPhone is an older USB device and may not work with USB 3.0 and plug it into a USB 2.0 port." But when I use USB 2.0 (I tried several times using each of the three USB ports on my PC), troubleshooting the error message says "Apple iPhone won't work correctly with USB 3.0." This seems to be a recent problem, since in March 2016, I could spend a few songs from my PC to my phone using iTunes.

    I wish I had some ideas of people who have experienced this problem, I find to be a more frustrating one.

    Well, you aren't the only one. This just freakin happened to me. I spent the last three hours with apple and Windows supports. Now I'm reinstalling Windows 10 by last resort of Windows support councils. I got the same message USB. In iTunes, under devices something removed my 5s and the iPad. But it remains 6 s wife. I tried my computers 2-(SS) 3.0 ports and 1 port 2.0 ordinary. I tried all four thinners cables I have. I will let you know the result of the Windows reinstall.
