Help, I just got this and cannot use it. I am using windows xp.

Did you install the iPod software included with the iPod? Without having done this, your machine will not be able to recognize the iPod.

Yes I did.

See if any of this from Apple support (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61711) applies.

Also guys, it says in the iPod updater that it can't mount the ipod. Should I format it with windows?

Man, ive let it sit for probably 10 to 15 minutes...You know, it does work fine on another computer though.?

if it works on another computer at least you know its not the ipod. specs of the computer your trying it on? could be a conflct, or a problem with the USB port.

im on a PC and mine did some wacky ass crap..it just said do not disconnect for a long time..crashed itunes a bunch of times and other crap..then asked for me to restart windows i did...and then i got a nice msg that i couldnt run windows cuz a .dll file was destroyed or some crap...needed to use my windows cd to fix it..and now its half ok...everytime i plug in my ipod my computer freezes up for a bit.. Itunes crashes once or twice and im ready to go!! MY computer is top of the line, though im SP1 so that might be a the problem?

First of all I would like to say im on a laptop. It's 3.4 Pentium 4, 1gb ram, 60gb 7200rpm drive... it's pretty much top of the line...
