I've tried it on other computers with no issues like this.
Let's look at the PC's detail. Sorry I can't find any.
All I can suggest is to try the rear USB ports or try a new USB PCI card.
Help. I can't synch, add music to or charge my IPod on my PC.
I have Windows XP SP3 with 2GB RAM. When I plug my IPod into the USB port, I can see the driver in device manager, and iTunes opens. The status window in iTunes indicates that it's verifying my device, them changes to "verifying which tracks to synch". At that point, the display in the device says disconnecting. I get an alert from windows saying "windows was unable to save all the data for file f:. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere." iTunes then gives me the message "The iPod cannot be synched, The required folder cannot be found"
I've restored the iPod more times than I care to count, it's been to Apple's service center where they're telling me there's no problem with the device. I've tried it on other computers with no issues like this.
Can anybody help?
