Re: Y550P with PM55 Chipset and iTunes 9

Is Lenovo going to come up with a fix for the novice user on this? I'm having the same problem and I've been monitoring this thread for a solution but none has come.

I have the same info as Omega (same driver version and date).  When trying to update the driver, Windows 7 "insists" that I have the latest driver and ends the process.

 

It's the same thing as Omega, getting Windows 7 to allow us to force the change.  Uninstalling the driver doesn't work as there would be no device detected in order for us update.

 

Although pressed for time, I'll see if I can update the driver is Safe Mode when I get home from work.

i'm beginning to lose hope. if they're going to fix this, they would have fixed this months ago.

 

they're probably just waiting for an apple or intel fix.

I noticed there is a new BIOS available for the Y550P posted 16 Apr.  Has anyone given it a go?  :smileyhappy:

Well....from summary say there is a fix for some USB Device, give it a try.

editted: I updated the BIOS and for now it is working ^^

I will try sync again after reboot my laptop.

 

My computer doesn't say my iPod as "Apple iPod" but my iPod name.

Maybe it is a clue that your iPod able to sync.

I apologize for double posting

 

Well....good news!

I reboot and try to sync again and it runs just like normal sync.

Thanks to anyone who fix this.

 

Weirdly enough, now it say my iPod is a digital camera in My Computer instead Apple iPod.

But if I remember correctly, in my old laptop also say my iPod is a Digital Camera. ^^

Yeah, I took the plunge and used my iPod to test it out and it would seem it works on my end as well.  A lot of syncing and deleting to see if it "breaks", but it looks good!

 

I couldn't find the details as to what the BIOS update fixed, but judging from Omega's post, it's USB-related?

Ah, thanks for that Omega.  I didn't realize the User Agreement pop-up was for the .txt file.  Thought I hit the wrong buttons...but, there it is:

 

1.  Sony battery charge/discharge error

2.  Issue between some USB devices and Y550p model

 

Thanks for the BIOS update, now I can cancel my MobileMe free-trial....  :smileywink:
