I found the problem. It requires a driver, USBAAPL.SYS, to be used by the device. Which under driver details, it is not listed. So I SOMEHOW need to get it to install that driver for my iPod. But how... it keeps recognizing it as an MTP device. And I can't get it to use the driver it NEEDS as the driver it needs. It keeps thinking the MTP driver is the newest and best. Arghhhh Windowssss, why hast thou forsaken me? And ideas about that one?
