    It shows up fine in the Finder, and when I connect it iTunes even comes to the front. But that's it. It never appears in the sidebar, which means I can't sync it or even restore it.

    Any ideas guys?

    Your MacBook wants you to get a 160GB Classic and a 16GB Touch for video?

    Any help would be appreciated guys. An iPod is pretty useless if you can't put music on it. Considering it worked flawlessly before I'm stumped as to why it'll mount in the finder but iTunes wont recognise it...

    im having the exact same issue. 5.5G, 30gb model. Also shows up in the finder, not in itunes. my iPod touch, and my moms shuffle 2G work just fine. Im running leopard, but im not sure if that has anything to do with it.
