      If you didn’t install the software and update before plugging it in, you should uninstal everything.

      Install software and update it, then after reboot, plug in the device.

      Are other USB devices found too? If not you may have USB support disabled in the BIOS or require a BIOS update.

      I find most “plug&play” USB installs require a systematic install. Start from scratch, software, update THEN device.

      If this i-Pod is still under warranty:

      Call 1-800-275-2273 for technical assistance. Apple offers complimentary phone support to eligible customers as outlined in the product warranty.

      Good luck

      If you haven’t already resolved this problem, here’s
      something to try. You didn’t say if you installed iTunes
      or not. The XP machine may not see the iPod until
      iTunes is installed. I’m not sure on this as I don’t have
      an XP machine and extra iPod to check it out.

      So install the iTunes software. If you want to use the
      iPod as an external disk, make sure to enable the disk
      mode setting. Again I’m not sure where it is because I
      don’t have the Windows version of iTunes.
