My PCs been acting strangely for a while now. The issue is that when I plug in an iPod it appears in nautilus/windows explorer and iTunes for a few seconds and then disappears as if ejected.
This behaviour also exhibits itself sometimes when there is 'noise' in the mains. When I say noise, I refer to the disturbance caused by turning on a fan etc that makes an audio amplifier produce a popping sound.
I have tried different iPods, iPod cables, and even moving the PC to a different socket and different mains cable to no avail.
I'm guessing that the problem's either the motherboard or the PSU.
The motherboard is an Asrock k10n78fullhd-hsli.
The PSU is a generic one that came bundled with my incredibly cheap case. Hmmm.
