    well first try this. did you reformat it using the windows restore utility, if you did i would just recommend using a program called ephpod, not as nice as itunes but it will get the job done.

    Oh? It must be a windows app plug in then. I always thought that windows compatability as far as using the ipod as a music player was limited by the older firmware (firmware specific to model)

    nope, just software. if i were him i would just download the 1.3 restore utility for windows and see how that goes, if it still doesnt work in itunes then he can use xpod, musicmatch (which i wouldnt) or ephpod (which works nicely).

    make sure your downloading version 1.3, not 2.1
