View Full Version : ipod being read as a scan drive

Feb 4, 2010, 02:21 PM
I recently transfered all the music on my ipod to a new computer---using the ipod (as this was the only place the music still exists).

However, now when I plug my ipod into my computer---it reads it as if it is a scan drive. It does not recognize it as an ipod...it does not open in itunes. It just starts scanning the device (as it does when I plug in an external HD).

I have gone through all the trouble shooting suggestions...nothing has worked.

My guess is that I may need to delete all the drives assigned to my ipod. If I do this---is there anything else I need to know; any additional steps.

Please give me some ideas, guidance, tips...

1. What iPod exactly are you talking about, iPod Touch 1G/2G/3G, iPod Nano 1G/2G/3G, ... ?

2. What version of iTunes and what OS are you using?

3. What do you mean by "scan device"?
