I've done searches and re installed to many times,added new driver,,, I'm almost done with this crap and apple. 1st, my other Ipods still work,,it's the Touch thats killing me. After reinstalling the new Itunes version I Got the message that the driver used for importing and burning cd's were missing,,I downloaded a new driver from Gear software and did what was told in the registry key,,Now I don't get that message anymore,, The new message is "there was a problem installing this hardware Apple Mobile Device USB Driver An error occured during installation of the device. The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or application request" As stated my other Ipods work,,but the computer,Itunes won't acknowledge the touch is plugged in. I'm lost ,tired and ready to throw this thing in the thrash after 12 hours of trying to get it to work.. Can anybody please help with the solution to this problem..PLEASE. This is new out of the box ------------------double post merged------------------Really ,,nobody can help ?
