I dropped my 3G iPod the other day (from a small height on to carpet, nothing too nasty) but now it won't mount when slotted into the dock or via direct firewire cable connection. I can see that it is attached in System Profiler, including the name I have given the disk, but there is no mount point listed which I think is the problem. I have tried everything I can think of to get it to mount including the following: Using Disk Utility to mount/unmount and verify or repair disk - Repairing disk for James's iPOD Checking HFS Plus volume. Checking Extents Overflow file. Checking Catalog file. Invalid extent entry Volume check failed. Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit (-9972) Repair attempted on 1 volume 0 HFS volumes repaired 1 volume could not be repaired DiskWarrior 3.0 failed to rebuild the disk Tried hard reset, iPod's scan disk was fine (though it keeps going back to it and rescanning often). Tried booting into disk mode, again it doesn't mount in the Finder or iTunes though it is recognised by the System Profiler. Power is getting through fine. Tried several of the diagnostic tests accessed by pressing Previus Next and Select when the Apple logo comes up - appears to be fine. My next step is to do a restore using the iPod updater. It recognises an iPod is attached but only gives the option to restore, not update. I am hoping I can at least mount the iPod once though to retrieve some files I had stored on there before erasing the disk completely, which I am hoping will fix the problem. Any other ideas??
