My dozy brother in law bqought his daughter an ipod without realizing that he needed a computer to upload music to it She brought it round last night, with a load of cd's for me to load on. I loaded the ipod software c/w itunes, put the cd's into the playlist and then connected the ipod via usb 2. According to the manual itunes should have recognised the ipod and transferred the playlist over. Of course nothing of the sort happened . The ipod was not recognised by itunes. I looked in the troubleshooting section of the manual and reset the ipod, nothing doing. So I read further and decided to try updating or resting the software with ipod updater. All I got was a message saying that the "ipod could not be docked". I even tried putting the ipod into disk mode to try updating the software, same message. The other thing i noticed was that the ipod kept switching itself on and off when it was connected and everytime i disconnected it it reset itself and kept asking me what language to use. I went on to the apple site and downloaded the latest version of itunes and updater. Still no good. Any ideas, is it the ipod, or is it the pc?? Oh and yes the ipod was formatted for windows.
