View Full Version : iPod classic shows up in iTunes but not in Finder

Hey everyone,

My iPod seems to connect fine to my MacBook, as it shows up on my iTunes and even plays. However, I can't seem to get it to show up in Finder or on my desktop. The disk utility shows that the iPod is detected. I don't want to restore my iPod because I have a lot of unique valuable files in it besides my songs (I use it as an occasional hard drive). I think I was able to access my iPod through Finder before, but I haven't tried to do it for some time until I found out it didn't work. I have accidentally disconnected my iPod a couple times as the cable was not very secure and kinda flimsy, so I'm worried that that may have caused some problems. What should I do? Thank you for your help.

You have to enable "Disk use" in iTunes for your iPod.
