Subject: Computer doesn't see ipod

Hi,

I know once before some directions were given to get the computer to
recognize the ipod, but I can't find them. I have an ipod 5.5 and when I
plug it into the computer it turns on, but the computer doesn't recognize it
being there. Can someone explain what I have to do to get the computer to
recognize it? Thanks in advance.

Sharon
** Hi Sharon,
Here's what I have to do whenever I plug my iPod into someone elses
computer:
I don't know if there is an easier way, but this works for me:

I lock the switch.
Then I plug it in with the iPod turned off.
The computer usually gives the plug-in plunk sound, and tells me that the
device was not recognized.
Then I unplug it, and unlock it.
Then I hold down the select button and the menu button to re-boot the iPod
into Rockbox.
Then I shut down the Rockbox.
Then I lock it down again, and plug it in, and the computer will recognize
it.

Like I mentioned, there may be an easier way, but this works for me.
HTH.
Glenn
