Windows reinstall reveals daunting news
Following this problem where my iPod and any other usb mass storage device is unrecognizable by my Windows, I have decided to reinstall my PC.
I have 2 harddisks on my computer, and most of the big things (movies, mp3s, downloaded softwares, digital photos) are on my second harddisk, so it is not that troublesome to backup a few files on my first harddisk (where the Windows is installed) to the second harddisk.
After reinstalling, I face this daunting news. My iPod still cannot be recognized. So did the USB drive and my external harddisk. All of them still give the same USB Device Not Recognized error. So this could be the hardware problem then.
Was too sleepy to continue my investigation. Just leave it for tomorrow. Signing off for today.
