Why won't my computer recognise my iPod?
When I plug my iPod into my (or any other) computer I get a message saying “Windows didn’t recognise the last device you connected.” I can still charge the iPod, and play any music that I already have on it, but cannot connect it to iTunes to sync any new stuff onto it.
I have tried resetting the iPod, and putting into Disk Mode, but still get the same message when trying to connect. I can’t restore it due to this issue.
When checking the harddrive in diagnostics mode I get these results:
Pending Sectors: 0
Edit - I have also tried various different cables, including official Apple USB cables, and different ports on my computer. My computer OS is Windows 8, and the iPod has never had a problem connecting before.
