I am new to the whole iPod thing. I was wondering if someone could give me instructions on how to change what I accidently named my iPod. I really would like to change it and it is frustarated me that I cannot. Thanks alot!!

connect it. when it shows up in iTunes in the Source view. just double click on it and you should be able to edit it from there.

I remember doing this in iTunes 4.7 and it renamed the iPod in iTunes, but it still showed the old name in the About page on my iPod. It was either 4.9 or 5.0 that allowed me to rename and actually did it without problem.

Another (potential) minor fix by Apple that has made things easier, but largely gone unnoticed.
