Hi all,

I have a brand spankin' new Dell Dimension 8400 running XP Home SP2.

I also have a not-so-new iPod Photo 30GB.

When I tried plugging my iPod into the USB port of my Dimension, I get the following error:

"USB Device Not Recognized"

Windows knows something's been plugged in, but not what it is. It doesn't even come up as a hard drive on My Computer, and it certainly doesn't register on iTunes. The iPod doesn't even charge when plugged in, as it should.

In addition, every time I plug in the iPod, one of the USB devices already plugged in stops working, and I have to unplug it and reinsert it so that it would start working again.

I know this is not a problem with the iPod itself, since it works on my older computer like a charm.

Please let me know if you have any solutions, or if something similar has happened to you.

Thanks in advance,
WASSIM MIKATI

Thanks, but actually that's the first place I went. As you can see, the page doesn't cover what to do if not even Windows Explorer recognizes the iPod -- Sorry, the "device".

Would you have any other suggestions please?
