I just got a 16gb 1st gen from my friend. when i plugged it in to my computer it wouldn't show up, just charges it. it also makes a beeping sound when it's plugged in. I remember I had this problem when i first got my original ipod touch a year ago. i called up tech support and i vaguely remember him telling me to delete everything itunes/quicktime related. I've tried this 5 times now, and i must be missing something. could anyone help me out? Sorry for the long post.
