    Exclamation iPod Touch shuts down computer
    Hi,

    Im really hoping someone will be able to help me out with this.
    I have a fairly new (ive only had it for four months) 8gb itouch, i won it actually, and so there is so such warranty or anything that came with it.

    The problem is ever since a month ago, whenever id try to plug my itouch into my PC to sync/update it (its still v.2.1), the modem would make this weird paper crunching noise and then shut off randomly. ive looked on a whole bunch of other forums who said to reinstall, and so i did. i completely uninstalled everything to do with itunes, reinstalled it and the itouch worked for a bit. then it started up AGAIN. my comp is not hooked up to a HP printer (i have both canon and lexmark though, unplugged them to no avail), nor to a logitech webcame (i have an intel one) and i dont have anything else hooked up to a USB port.

    i was thinking it could be my itouch, seeing as how i didnt buy it from a retailer but my computer is sort of old, (its windows XP), i think we've had the modem for about 4 or 5 years now.

    HOWEVER, i also dont think its my itouch since we also have an iphone, which we did buy from a retailer that ALSO shuts off the computer and that was when it was brand new and i hadnt even synced it to itunes as yet! but it keeps shutting down the computer too. D:

    Please, please, if anyone can shed some light on this, it would be great. ive been trying to figure out wtf is wrong but it seems like nothings working.

    No, im using the USB that came with the itouch, same for the iphone.
    actually, i think its a driver problem.

    and as for the modem, my bad, i meant computer.

    What is your computer and what OS are you running?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
