    Anyone heard anythign about the ipod or least the ipod mini having syncing issues with windows machiens lately? My friends ipod would not pop up in itunes no matte rhow many tiems we reset it, and th eipod updater didnt see it and said it couldnt mount the ipod. We re-installed itunes and the updater, and no go, and then out of nowhere it worked just fine.

    Considering this is a Mac related forum, I guess not.

    1. Is the iPod Windows formatted? Windows machines can't read Mac formatted iPods.

    2. At work on my PC, sometimes it'll take a good minute or two for my iPod to mount in iTunes. Plug it in and give it a little while, see if that makes a difference.

    The same kind of thing happened to me w/ my iPod. I had to get it replaced. I don't remember it being a windows problem, but rather the iPod was messed up.
