My lovely 20GB 2G iPod has been on the blink for a while and finally semi-died a death late last year. I got it out again, managed to charge it and it played again. It plays everything fine (apart from the odd crash/freeze where it continues to play the track with no sound) and can be charged and even recognizes the FireWire cable plugged in. My Mac does not recognize the iPod though. I've reinstalled the software on the iPod, wiped it, etc etc etc. It doesn't show up in Disk Utility either. Anyone got any bright ideas before I rip it apart, see what makes it tick and am left with a really dead iPod?
