Can ipods work with clamshell iBooks?

I have a 300mhz Rev. 2 tangerine iBook and I hooked up a 3G ipod and a ROKR and it will work as a hard drive but itunes doesn't identify the machine through the usb port.

I presume that there is some incomptability? I don't really see what is up with that?

I assume you're connecting via USB? I don't think the 300mhz ibook has firewire...

It should work without any problems. What version of OS X and iTunes are you using?

The problem you're having is with the USB port on the iBook. It needs to be USB 2.0 and not 1.0 (or 1.1). If you had a FireWire port, it would work. Does this machine have a FireWire port?

USB 1.1 will work, albeit slow.

Is it windows formated ?


A Windows formatted ipod will look like a hard disk (icon) on the desktop, but iTunes should still be able to use it. Make sure you are running the latest version of iTunes, and that you have a recently updated iPod.

FWIW
My 3G ipod will mount to my iBook G4, PM G3, and PM G5 Via USB but will NOT charge.
