    When i plug it in I see it on the desktop but it doesn't show up in Itunes, anybody know what to do?

    I know iTunes doesn't recognise it, but do the iTunes preferences recognise it?

    At a guess, have you connected the Mac before and told it not to sync libraries?

    Also, you know that reformatting it will probably work (assuming the iPod Updater can see it) as a last resort - you'll lose everything on it though.

    I know formatting it will make me see it on my Mac but then it won't work for my PC :'(. Under preferences it still isn't showing up

    Have you quit iTunes and reopened it? Sometimes my iPod isn't recognised straight away if I manually open iTunes at the same time.

    I've tried that and a few restarts and still nothing :(
