    Computer 1: Asus P4C800-E Deluxe, P4C 2.8 GHz, 500 watt PSU
    Computer 2: Asus P4P800, P4C 2.8 GHz, 400 watt PSU

    I plug the iPod Nano into PC1 and nothing happens. Restart the computer and go into the bios. In the bios it recognizes the iPod Nano. Go back into windows. Still nothing. Nothing in control panel, nothing detected through iTunes, etc.

    I plug it into PC2 and it detects automatically and asks me if I want to synch.

    Problem is all my music is on PC1.

    What could be the problem?

    Hrm... weird. Are both PCs running the same version of iTunes?

    Try reinstalling iTunes on PC1? :shrug:

    Try connecting your ipod via USB if you have a cable.

    iTunes is up to date on both computers. Also, regardless of iTunes, PC1 is not detecting the iPod in ANY way while PC2 is detecting it through iTunes, detecting it through control panel, and detecting it through windows explorer.

    USB is what i'm using.

    What happens with PC1? Any detection in windows at all? few things ive seen is trying either enable or disable USB legacy support. If not do other ipods work? or even other uSB HDDS?

    I assume you checked in disk management for the Ipod? You may need to assign it a drive letter.

    Sell your iPod and buy an Archos GMini XS202 or a Sandisk Sansa.
