Hi Everyone and Happy Holidays!!

I am hoping that I am putting this topic in the appropriate place, if not, I am sorry and please direct me to the right thread.

Well, I got a new iPod for Christmas and went to install the thing and start uploading some music to it. The problem is iTunes won't recognize the iPod. My computer, however, does recognize the iPod.

I went to the apple site for help and followed the entire troubleshooting steps for this problem. I installed, removed, reinstalled, etc, etc. The last step in the trouble shooting is to "disable some items with the System Configuration Utility in Windows XP." I am not sure how to do this or what to disable. Help here is appreciated.

Also, the next step, if that doesnt work, is to check if there is some other system issue with my laptop. Anyone have any problems like this before or hear something like this happening? What should I do??

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi,

thanks for the fast reply. the directions say to disable 'iTunesHelper' and 'qttask' and then to 'hide all microsoft services'

the first two are under STARTUP tab, the last is a check box under SERVICES.

You would have to list what is there for us to suggest anything.

It says to hide all microsoft services and then disable all. then select the iPodService chekcbox and restart.

I tried this and it gave me an error message about being in the administrator mode when I do this. How can I switch to admin? Do I have to be in safe mode? that is the only time i have the option of choosing the admin user option.

whose computer is this?

It sounds like you have a multi-user system and have been given a limited user account.

I just checked again and I am set as the system administrator. I logged into safe mode as the actual administrator to try to get this thing working but to no avail.

Any ideas as to what I can/should do next??
