Hello I know this is a common problem but I can't find the solution to my version of it anywhere, would really appreciate any help! I actually think the problem might be iTunes not iPod. Anyway, I've been having problems wihth my iBook (G4). I was synching my ipod when it crashed completely, ended up having to try and restore iPod having had first to archive adn reinstall OS X.4 on the ibook. When I got it working again, iTunes woulnd't recognise iPod at all and it was frozen . I managed to restore it fine on another apple computer - it's working perfectly but still, when I plug it into the com;puter, it doesn't come up on itunes (though the ipod itself beeps and starts charging) Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?? When i did archive and reinstall of OS 10.4 it reinstalled itunes so that's already done.
