Okay here's the issue. My computer has stopped recognizing my Ipod Touch. Well sort of - it tells me that there is an Iphone (which I don't have) plugged in and it cannot reconcile with it. Thing is this is not EXACTLY new. A week or so ago it stopped recognizing my daughters walkman. In addition the computer will not open Itunes everytime (and a few other programs). It is also freezing fairly regularly. The System Pentium 4 - 3.2 Ghz, 3 gig of DDR, Windows XP. System has been on for 3-4 years pretty much constantly - I rarely turn off and until recently could not tell you the last time it had problems. Has been absolutely trouble free despite adding a new HD, Video Card, DVD writer, memory, and other misc things in upgrades over the last 3-4 years. This computer is the center of my whole network. What I have done: 1. Checked and rechecked for viruses - I have Norton fully updated) 2. Tried other USB ports - the ones on the front are OEM Ports - I have an added card in the rear along with more OEM ports. Same results no recognition (Both IPOD and Walkman) 3. Cleaned/and Defragged - I do it regularly but did it again. 4. Cleaned out unused programs. (uninstalled all correctly no haphazard deleting). Any suggestions. BTW: Ipod and Walkman are both fine on my wife's laptop.
