Le Tour most resembles…

… pro wrestling.

It’s all fake, but I still can’t help watching. (I have SuperDave to thank for that observation.)

Mostly, I just wanted the opportunity to embed this video. Get out your French phrasebook!

iTunes hoses the USB port even worse

Monday, July 14th, 2008

I took the new 2.0 update ($10 more; thanks Apple!), and my iPod Touch will not work at all through a USB hub any more. Seriously, how could Apple think that was OK? I keep my PC under the desk, and the cable included with the iPod is too short.

But still, the fucked up USB port problem remains, so here’s something that might help when added to the original hosed USB post.

Enter the following command:
devcon listclass usb

You’ll get something that looks like this:

USB\ROOT_HUB\4&11F0DA81&0 : USB Root Hub
USB\ROOT_HUB20\4&2ACDDB0C&0 : USB Root Hub
USB\VID_0424&PID_2504\5&18F4DAC0&0&5 : Generic USB Hub
USB\VID_046D&PID_0850\5&696507C&0&2 : Logitech USB Camera (Web)
USB\VID_05AC&PID_1291\1FE229394A7FDE4CB14D9142E9CC68A19136DFD1: Apple Mobile Device USB Driver

Try using the id for the “Apple Mobile Device USB Driver” in the script in the previous post. Use everything from “USB” to, but not including the “:”, and the “@” in script is important). It seems to be working for me (so far).
