Windows 8 will not detect iPod Touch 2 generation


My problem is I have an iPod Touch 2 gen and when I plug in windows cannot detect it. If I go to post work is not in the list, or if I go to Device Manager, it is still not detected not even in portable devices or controllers Bus USB, but the iPod is charging. It happened after a restored building and now I need to connect it to iTunes, but it does not work. I tried with Windows 7, 8 and 10, and I don't know what to do at the moment. My 5s iPhone works fine with the same computers.

Please help me, thank you



Hi Tom,

Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

I understand that the iPod Touch 2 connects not with Windows 7, 8 or 10 and I will be happy to answer your query. Let me ask you;

  • IPod Touch 2 appears in iTunes?
  • You receive an error message?

This could be due to problem of incompatibility with iTunes. Given that iPhone 5s connects without any problems, you can refer to the suggestions provided by Apple in the link below.

If the problem persists, I would ask that you check with Apple support.

Hope this information is useful. Please feel free to answer in the case where you are facing in the future other problems with Windows.

  • Windows 8 will not detect my second monitor.

    I recently bought a VGA splitter to connect my second monitor to my computer. It turns on but it duplicates only (not even as good resolution). I want to use this monitor to expand, but when I go to display and resolution it does not detect the second monitor even after click on detect. Someone has an answer to this?

    A VGA splitter can duplicate only a display. It does not report a second graphics port for Windows, which is necessary if Windows is to recognize two separate screens.

    If your system has a single port graph, you will need to replace your graphics card (or add a card, if you use the integrated graphics card) with a with two or more output channels.

  • Windows 8 will not detect my graphics (Nvidia Ge Force 555 M)

    I have a Lenovo B520 desktop PC and recently upgraded to Windows 8, since my upgrade, I lost the ability to use my graphic dedicated chip (a Nvidia Ge force 555M), trying to install the drivers for this device, the installer of Nvidia said that it could not find any compatible hardware (Windows 8 had not recognized the graphics card). If someone else is having the same problem or someone knows how to solve this problem, then you would be a great help,

    Thank you

    I experienced a similar problem with my motherboard Asus P8Z77-V and a Nvidia GTX 670. I have video output to my monitor, but according to the Nvidia Control Panel, there is no compatible hardware installed, so my games run like molasses.

    In my case, I found a solution that might work for you too. In Device Manager, I noticed that the system for my port PCI Express device had a marker against it, so it did not work properly. For me, the device was labeled "Xeon processor E3-1200 v2/3 rd Gen Core Processor PCI Express Root Port - 0151". Right click on one to select Disable and then enable caused once again my card being detected and everything worked properly again.
    Only problem with the solution above, it persists through a reboot, so whenever I start my computer I have to do. Not perfect, but the best solution that I can find at the moment.
    I hope this helps you

    Edit: I have since solved the problem permanently (fingers crossed) by updating the firmware on my motherboard to the latest version. YMMV.

  • Windows 8 will not detect my network card


    Recently, I upgraded my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 8. The whole installation has worked perfectly and I can run everything very well, except the internet. I have a Trendnet TEW 643PI wireless network adapter and Windows does not recognize that it inserted in the computer. The only option for internet is through an ethernet cable. I tried to update the drivers several times. I restarted my computer at least 4 times now. I have unplugged the PCI card and ran the machine, then plugged in. Everything I've tried has not worked.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Too bad everyone! I fixed it myself.

    I connected my computer to ethernet (I use my Macbook air to do this) and represented the convenience store. He found the missing and found a driver and installed. So now I can use internet again.
  • is the glass front/digitizer for ipod touch 5th generation and iphone 5th generation the same?

    I have a digitizer broken on my ipod 5th generation touch, it's the cheapest digitizer with the first delivery I found on amazon: 6Z8PC.

    It is, however, for the iphone 5, not the ipod touch 5th generation.

    these parts are compatible?

    If this is not the case, can someone point me to the cheapest place to buy a new glass + digitizer for ipod 5th generation? I'm not afraid to do my own replacements and have done so before.

    I need not have the first expedition to the France. the cheapest place on the internet, which is reliable and ships of the United States would be perfect.

    any help is appreciated!

  • iPod touch 6th generation will not be displayed in itunes

    So I got an ipod touch 6th generation, brand new today. I have a bunch of songs on my computer I want to put on it, but the ipod will not be displayed in itunes.

    I'm on Windows 10, the latest version of itunes and I tried to restart the ipod and the computer several times in order to put in place. I deleted the apple driver put it into every usb port, reset all warnings dialog, I reset the iPod and deleted everything and started around and still nothing.

    I think that the problem lies in the fact that I was not prompted to trust the computer. I think I could have been, but the text was gone too fast so I don't know if I clicked on Yes or no. Does anyone have an idea what to do?
