Well, my ipod was plugged in with it's do not disconnect message, but it wasn't showing up on my desktop, so I coudn't unmount it, so I just unplugged it and reset it by holding down menu and play, all was going well, my apple symbol showed up and that's it, nothing more, just the apple symbol, I plugged it back in and nothing but the apple symbol. The symbol will flash every once and awhile. Anyone have any ideas. Just to make sure you know, the computer is not seeing the ipod, so I can't go to disk utility. Thanks for any help.
