Firstly, my iPod is no longer connecting to my G5 when I plug it in. I used to use the fiewire cable, so I tried the USB to see if that would work, but I got nothing. It starts to charge and everything, but it doesn't show up on my desktop or in iTunes. Secondly, after a weekend of inactivity, when I turn on my iPod it completely boots up (with the Apple logo). Was it completely off for the weekend? I was wondering why when I take it to school, I have it on my for, let's say, 6 hours. It's on about 45 min total, and off the rest, but my power has gone down halfway. Is it because I'm in some sort of standby mode, draining power? If anyone could help me on either problem, it would be much appreciated. Thank you.
