I have installed Vista Home Premium on my home PC and have nothing but problems with peripherals.  I have a iPod Shuffle (new saquare one) that Vista cannot seem to find the driver for even after installing iTunes on the computer.  How can I get Vista to see the iPod? I had it suearch the local drives and teh internet with no luck :(

Does it recognize the device when you plug it in, or in the device manager?

What is it seen as in the Device Manager?

  I will try those suggestions tonight when I am home.  Thanks!

Yes it does recognize it.  It just keeps asking for a driver.  It does the same thing if I plug in any USB Mass Storage Device.  In the case of the iPod, it knows it is an iPod but keeps cylcing through asking for a driver.

THanks for your help!
