Thank you in advance to anyone who might be able to help.

I have a 1st gen ipod that I barely used and which has charged up successfully this afternoon after being in a cupboard in a box for goodness knows how long.

It's currently on ios 3.1 (3.1.3 7E18).

I am able to look at some lovely photos of my children that have somehow managed to make their way onto this device that even pre-date in from before 2007.

The ipod touch will not seem to interact with my laptop (windows 10), itunes won't start up when it's attached, on the device Safari won't let me log into virgin media webmail as it can't make a secure connection :)

I'd love to transfer the photos to a more modern device for security and so that I can share them.

I'm probably being really thick, but I'm too old to be worried by appearances. Can anyone help?

Cheers
Rich

Hi,

Can you try to open the Device Manager by right-clicking on the Start icon and then selecting it in the menu? And then share a screenshot of it by expanding the categories?

The only way might be to get hold of a Mac with older version of Mac OS/iPhoto/iTunes on it as I believe they deliberatley blocked older devices with the latest update. (My iPod Touch 2nd gen just got blocked)

Last resort: Rephotograph the photos from the screen using a new device.

Couldn't you just email the photos from the iPod Touch to your current email account?
Would be slow but worth the effort in this case I would guess.
