hey guys, each time i try to format the ipod classic 80gb using mac os journaled type but when i hit ease, the msg "connection lost, and quitting disk utility"
some said deleting quicktime from application would work, but it didnt. My quicktime ver is 7.02....

so how can i fix this ?

Try it on a different USB port. If it's saying it's losing connection, the USB connection you're using might be faulty. I say this from first hand experience.

AND, you should be setting up your iPod in iTunes...NOT in disc utility.
