    not sure if this is some new feature as I am stuck using the PC version of itunes. I think they are trying to hide the ipod music files as much as possible.

    anyone confirm that you can still get to the files from the terminal? i.e., cd /Volumes/ipod name/control... ?

    I can see mine. There's an arrow next to the iPod icon in the iTunes sidebar which shows/hides the library and subsequent playlists. Is this what you're after? :)

    I haven't tried, but Terminal should still have access to the iPod files too.

    i really ought to pay more attention to these things - or find my damned glasses.

    I think I was thrown on 2 counts, the huge interface changes and the fact that I am so used to using the mac version of itunes instead of this pc.

    I'd reply but I can't make out your post. The ol' eyes just aren't what they used to be... :D

    FWIW, even though Terminal (and Windows Explorer) can see/modify the iPod files, all changes should still be made through iTunes. :)
