View Full Version : weird Itunes problem. Ipod classic 80g

or, atleast I find it weird.

Just got a brand new Ipod Classic 80g.
I plug it into my XP pro PC open up Itunes
Itunes asks if I want to register the ipod, I say "continue" and I get this message:
"Your request cannot be completed. Make sure your computer's date is set correctly and that it accepts cookies from the itunes music store....."

OK. So I refreshed the time, allowed cookies, lower privicy setting, and make sure I'm logged into Itunes store....still the same trouble.
Even if I "register later" I get that message and cannot SEE the Ipod's library.

I can add files all I want, but Itunes will not show the Ipod library to edit or apply settings.

When I plug the Ipod into my laptop, it works perfectly (doesn't ask to register though)....

any ideas? Thanks!

Thanks for your reply.
It's very possible.
Though, I should have mentioned this is my 3rd Ipod, before the other 2 (nano, ipod Gen 5.5) were stolen, they worked properly with my PC.
Of course PC do suck.

Try a HDD format again on the ipod, that usually will sort out problems...
