    Hi, i recently upgraded my 16gb 1st gen ipot firmware from 1.1.2 to 2.1

    and then used quickpwn to jailbreak to 2.1jb.

    But itunes is now picking up my ipod as an iphone and not allowing me to play my music through itunes.

    Are those two things related?... or is there a setting somewhere in the new itunes to allow me to play music off my ipod through itunes? It's something i've been doing at work for ages now.

    I have authorized the ipod on this laptop.

    your ipod touch is detected as an iphone?

    so, my question is, does it affect your ipod? i mean is it malfunctioning?

    if it is, try to restore.

    Actually, people hate it when you call it an "iTouch"

    But your best bet is to restore unfortunately, or you could reinstall iTunes to see if that fixes it.

    Hrmm,

    Well it's functioning just fine as an "ipod touch" or iphone. it's just that it's picked up as an iphone by itunes, and consequently won't let me play the mp3's off it on the laptop...

    or can you actually do that with iphones?

    and i used quickpwn with the firmware that itunes d/led for my ipod... so as far as i'm aware... i jailbroke using ipod touch firmware. it's only a minor annoyance i guess.

    Thanks for the input though guys.

    I would try reinstalling iTunes seeing that it seems to be the source of the problem

    No, If he did which is almost impossible without getting an error, he would have an incredibly slow device, and hardly anything would function. (Got my info from ModMyifone)
