My husband formatted and loaded a new 30 GB video iPod on his windows laptop, which then crashed. (laptop not iPod and iPod was not attached when it crashed). I am trying to load his song library on to our Mac here at home. I've done this before sucessfully -- I usually can see Windows formatted iPod just fine on Mac. And, I've used PodUtil to back the songs up on to our Mac here. (They are all ripped from our CDs, but we always want to have both on his Windows and my Mac. But in this case we don't know if he'll be able to rescue from his laptop. And he just ripped a ton of new CDs.) Anyway, here's the problem: * I see the iPod in the finder and in iTunes * BUT no songs show up in iTunes or in PodUtil * However, I can see from gig space used that the files are there What am I doing wrong? I did not auto-sync the iPod, so I know it was not erased. And, as I said, I can see from space used that files are still on the iPod -- i just can't get them to show up. This is our first video iPod so I'm wondering if something has changed that I am missing. I am running latest version of itunes software on OSX 10.3.9. I am using the cord that came with iPod to jack into USB port. I have tried different ports. iPod is practically brand new and appears to be functioning fine except for invisible songs in iTunes. When I insert iPod it asks me if I want to load updated iPod software and I've been telling it no because I do not want to erase songs.
