Here one for you...my i-pod 1st generation 8gb froze up completely last night...tried everything, nothing worked. Went to Apple store today and had them restore (took 4 tries to do it-even they were scratching their heads) Needless to say..it was restored and told to plug back into my computer and re-sync everything tonight. Problem is...now i-tunes doesnt recognize the ipod when it's plugged in BUT...tried my 2 daughter i-pods tonight @ theirs works fine with i-tunes when plugged in??? what's wrong with mine? Still works ok with wi-fi for internet access ect but can sync any songs and nothings on it. HELP!!!
