    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here and just got the ipod 2nd gen, but my computer won't read it. Although it shows up as a camera and scanner in 'my computer', it is not even reading the new usb device when plugged in. Any help and advice would be greatly appreaciated,

    many many thanks

    Jackie

    yes
    all you need is the latest version of itunes

    go check apple.com, you can download it from there.

    yeah because the older version of itunes (i think its like anything below 8) will not read the 2G ipod touch.
