Windows 7: Windows 7 crashing when transfering music from Ipod

Windows 7 crashing when transfering music from Ipod

Hello all,

I just bought an HP g6 laptop the other day with Windows Home Premium x64, and I wanted to bring all my music from my Ipod classic to my new computer. It is normally a straightforward process, but whenever I try it with the new computer, Windows 7 crashes. I tried to do a bit of trouble shooting myself, but to no avail. I downloaded the Microsoft Host Controller Driver Update for HP users, but when I went to install it, the error message "Update did not install (259)" came up.

I don't know what to do about it, but a lot of people seem to have similar problems that have to do with nvidia chipsets or something.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
