After Installing Mac OS X from an iPod how do you get it back to an iPod?
Best thread title ever.
As an installation process is only using the "copy" command . no data will be removed from the source of the installation, if that is in your case your iPod, thus there will be still the installation files on the iPod.
If you used the iPod to install Mac OS X on and no copied the data onto another Mac, the data will also be still on the iPod.
Or do you mean something else, thus can be more specific?
Btw, Mac OS X is the name of the OS that is installed on Macs.
I put leopard installer on a iPod.
The the Leopard installation files will still be there after you installed Mac OS X on some Mac.
Or do you want to clone the now working installation of Mac OS X onto your iPod? If so: CCC or SuperDuper.
If something else: ?
I think... he wants to start using the iPod as an iPod again, having already put the files on there, but I could be wrong.
Maybe, but the OP is not really descriptive.
Btw, the iPod can still be used as an iPod when it is used as HDD, that's at least how my iPod (2004/5) worked, I could even use at as boot device for other Macs, while still being able to play back music.
Otherwise, one can format the iPod via Disk Utility and then use iTunes to copy music back onto it.
