Hey guys,

Sorry if this is a repost or call for help but... just got a new pc (windows 7, 64 bit). I cannot get any version of itunes to recognize my ipod. everything installs fine, my computer sees the ipod, everything looks clean except my ipod does not get recognized in the source pane in itunes... i think I have tried everything on the planet. even talked with 2 techies @ apple to no avail. my ipod is functional as it stills runs perfect on my XP machine. could there be anything missing from 7 that is causing this conflict? thanks in advance.

+1!!!1 I think the issue is that ITUNES and IPODS are extremely obscure and the Windows Engineers didn't bother to check compatibility, I am certain that we are the only 2 people having issues.

Hey Windows7inMiami... i actually, finally got it to work. forgot to post the updates here tho... i took a chance and simply updated my ipod from within itunes. i was freaked out thinking it was going to force me to restore (and lose 75 Gigs of music... I'd be PISSED!). my ipod was older and it apparently just needed a simple software update. simple as that, works perfectly! just updated the software from version 1, to version 2 and it recognized it...sweet...so happy. good luck buddy.

Yes, I had the same issue with Iphone, simply restored it to original config and re-synched.

Well I just restored it and am now re-syncing it, I will post what happens. YES I had to delete everything off my IPOD but I used Sharepod to move all my music so no worries. will follow-up soon.

Well everything seems to work except auto-sync. I have no idea why. I have to physically open ITUNES and THEN it see's my IPOD and THEN it SYNC's.

Any ideas?

No, you plug in your ipod, Itunes automatically opens and then sync's, maybe it is a setting I missed?


Thanks Again!!!

Ok. I see what you are saying.
You need to set your program defaults.
  1. Go to start
  2. Click on default programs
  3. On the left you will see various programs
  4. Click on Itunes.
  5. Set it to the default option you require
  6. Go to itunes, set it to autosync when ever you plug in the device
Miami I made you a screenshot to look at.

This did not work? Also my screen did not look like yours did with the settings? I have Windows 7 64X?
