I have a Dell Dimension 5150 desktop that is brand new. Out of the box after installing my iPod software and following all of the appropriate instructions I've never been able to get Windows to recognize the iPod once it is attached to the system. I've tried deleting all the USB devices and having it rebuild the driver stack. I've tried updating the system (came with SP2). I've tried usb ports on the back of the system. Still nothing! I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and cursed, the iTunes software several times.
Long story short, nothing I've tried above worked. The iPod works just fine on a Compaq V2000 notebook so I know there's nothing wrong with the iPod itself, making this all the more frustrating.
Any thoughts? It's not recognized in Windows or iTunes.
It's Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 SP2. IPod Nano was purchased at Christmas time this past year.
