Blank Device Manager window + Apple iTunes iPod Service Module keeps crashing

If you are having problems syncing your new iPod to your iTunes software and are experiencing this specific error: “iPodServiceModule has encountered an error and needs to close” then you’ve come to the right spot for a fix.

Go here and download the Microsoft patch.  You will have to run this patch in Safe Mode otherwise it will not work properly.

In order to get into Safe Mode, go ahead and restart the computer and continuously hit F8 on your keyboard.  You will eventually be prompted with a list of different options.  Highlight with the keyboard arrow keys, “Safe Mode.”

Once you you have your desktop up, go ahead and run the fixccs.exe.  It will run and do its job.  Restart the computer and you should be good to go.
