Hi guys - first post here so please be nice ;

Got a frustrating problem and nothing seems to work but first will give you a bit of specs first

I am running 32-bit Vista, on a AMD Phenom x4 with a Gigabyte M750SLI-DS4 motherboard, with 2 gig of DDR2 and 500Gb Hdd.

However, Vista isn't detecting neither my psp nor my 32gig iPod Touch through the USB ports. The PSP comes up with an unknown device message when I plug it in, but the iPod doesn't register a thing. However, if I plug the iPod into the firewire port on the motherboard, it does charge up but still not detected at all.

I have tried uninstalling and installing iTunes various times, removing everything and anything related to it every single time, which, may I add, is not fun. I have also formatted, reinstalled and set up Vista about 5 times now but nothing.

I have checked my bios and it is up to date as well.

Any help would be great as right now have got two expensive paperweights sitting next to me.

Thanks in advance.

This would tend to indicate that the motherboard chipset drivers have not been installed.

Windows default drivers just won't do the trick.

Usb is operating in 2.0 mode - tried printer and the works fine, as does the wireless mouse. Just upgraded the Nvida NForce 750aSLI chipset as well alas nothing new has occured
