When ipod is connected to usb port i am getting a message telling me that the usb port is not "fast" enough.When I click on the message the i tunes programme seems to begin to start to import tunes frompc to ipod but then my pc shuts down.Any help would be gratefull,
Have to go offline now but if this is the problem you could buy a USB 2.0 card such as this click here the only thing you would need to ensure it would work would be to make sure you have a free PCI slot in your PC (they are the white ones) if theres one with nothing in it and this is the problem then that would solve it.
Incidently I downloaded and looked at one of the iPod manuals it doesn't say it won't work with USB 1.1 but does recommend a USB 2.0 connection saying there could be problems with the older connection.
Thanks for advise - I have had success with the port in the past but for some reason now it is not recognising it as a USB 2.0. How do I get windows xp to recognise that it is a faster port? It may be something I am doing - I am not very technically minded - I am trying to sort this out for my son!!!
Are plugging it in direct to the USB port or through a hub (as I have had a similar message when plugging a device in via a hub)?
To check that you have a usb 2.0, go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware>device manager and you should see usb controllers. If you expand that if you have USB 2.0 it should show up as "enhanced".
I just installed a USB 5 port PCI card in anticipation (£5 from e-buyer).Teenage sons getting Ipod and PSP respectively for christmas, and I didn't want to be frequenting PCWorld on boxing day! Tell offspring that installation is a 5 minute job, and that it will revolutionise his life. Better still, get him to fit it.
