Re: I want help in manual installation of apple drivers.
Yes! Your next poster does have a solution. From where did you learn buttering by the way? Before any other expert ask you to install and uninstall the iTunes, let me tell you this hardly helps, s I was considering to suggest something else. Even I was a victim (as I like calling it) of this issue. Even my iPod touch was being recognized as a digital camera and trust me I tried every God damn recipe suggested by apple, none of them even hint of working
The only thing that works in such situations is to force both the system and the device with using the most possible and apt driver, so the solution would be:
1. First of all, you need to check to confirm that you have iTunes installed in your system. This is very important to go ahead with the solution
2. Another solution would be to check out if the device is detected by your system, let it be anything that doesn’t matter, but it needs to be detected
3. Search for this file whose name is rightly spelt as: usbaapl in the folder bearing the path as follows: C:\WINDOWS system folder, to do this,
a. Go to the start button down there and then click on it with a right click, from the number of options, click what reads as ‘Explore’4. There, you should be yielding results with files like: usbaapl.sys, usbaapl.inf etc. if you don’t then your drivers have not been installed with the iTunes install in the way that it should have been, you might need to uninstall and reinstall the iTunes only then.
b. Here, on the right pane, you will find a number of options to chose from, locate WINDOWS and rightclick it and select search
c. Here, you will come across a text box, there you can type in the text which reads : usbaapl and hit the search button below to find the file
5. If you find them, it will be under the subfolder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE e.g. C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRVSTORE\usbaapl_A65621D65F5B7507DD7B22331826547BDD2D206B you will need to remember this path as you might need this later. Simply copy this and paste it to notepad as iit is practically impossible to remember this path by a human
6. Now, locate the camera or the iPod that was in question, in the device manager of the system. To find it follow the following steps:
a. Use the path: using Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager
b. Check out for your beloved device, it might be in some different category, say if it is detected as camera, you’ll find it in: ‘imaging devices’
7. Now, you need to update the driver, in a very different manner, unlike mentioned above, you can follow a less complicated attempt as below:
a. Go to the camera or the iPod whatever is found, now right click on it to find device ‘Update Driver’. Click on it to move ahead
b. This click will take you to a Hardware Update Wizard, out there Check the ‘Install from a list or specific location’ then click ‘Next’
c. After this, check the checkbox next to the text which reads: ‘Search for the best driver in these locations’ which will yield you best results
d. Un-check the checkbox next to the text which reads ‘Search removable media’ and check ‘Include this location in the search’ and check : ‘Include this location in the search’.
e. In the text box, type in or preferably copy-paste the path of the folder which you found in one of the above mentioned steps
f. Click next and you should be finding something like: ‘Apple ipod device driver’ or so. Continue installing that device.
