IPod shuffle not recognized by Windows XP

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am a Mac user however my girlfriend has a computer with Window XP. She's had an iPod Shuffle and it worked great for six months, however recently her computer no longer recogizes the iPod when it is plugged into the USB. The green light in the front of the iPod just flashes and it doesn't even show as a drive on the My Computer screen.

 

I've never had any problems with my iPod, but there see many regarding Windows XP. If someone could help me that would be very much appreciated!

 

Thanks

Process of elimination...

 

1. Try her shuffle on someone else PC or Mac and see if it worked.

2. Have another USB device connect to her PC and see if it worked.

 

Also on her PC check device manager and see if it's got a problem with the USB device. You might need to delete all the USB entry and reboot the system. WinXP does pretty good job with PnP and if USB device is working it will add everything back in just the way it was. If it doesn't and got Red X or yellow ! then USB device maybe the issue here.
