Ever since I've gotten my iPod, I've struggled with the magic sequence to get it to mount every time I put it in it's dock. It seems that I forever tried various combinations with my other firewire gear and I'd usually have to reboot my machine to get it to work. Today, I only had my iPod and an external CD burner plugged in. The iPod and the burner were listed as being on the FW bus, but the iPod would incessantly flash "Do Not Disconnect" and wouldn't mount. I finally unplugged all FW devices, plugged the iPod back in and docked it. Voila! Mounts & updates just fine. No reboot required. I just wanted to share my excitement with everyone, but I really wish I could use my 7 FW devices without having to climb behind my computer every time!!! So far, I can't use any other FW devices when my iPod or my Canon Elura are connected---those two devices really gum up the works. Anyone else have this problem?
