Ok well just yesterday I tried to plug my ipod into the computer because it needs recharging and I wanted to add some songs and a couple of videos. The problem is, I plug the USB into the ipod THEN my computer and it beeps 3 times and doesn't connect my ipod, there are NO pop up messages telling me that there's an error or it wont connect for any reason, it just doesn't connect.
What do the 3 beeps mean and how can I fix this so I can add songs and recharge?
1) right-click on "my computer"
2) go to Properties
3) Hardware tab
4) click on "device manager"
5) scroll down to "universal serial bus controllers"
6) you should find one with a little red "x" in the icon
7) right-click on it, and chose "enable"
8) That's all...
it should work then.
i too am having the same problem; however, i have the ipod touch. I too plugged in my ipod to my computer a few days ago and it wanted me to download some updates. I did not have the time to update anything for i had an engagement that i was already running late for. So, i clicked some button (not sure if it was the cancel button or if it was some button that makes your computer completely ignore your ipod). From that moment on, i have not been able to have my ipod and my computer link up in order for me to add additional songs/videos/pictures as i could do prior to this happening.
Any advice/instructions for what i could do to resolve my problem would be much appreciated.
