I use my ipod exclusively in my car, I have a Clarion CD player with an iPod interface. I do this so I don't have to have my CD's in my car. I had about 3 new CD's that I ripped to my PB that I hadn't synced to the iPod. I plugged in the iPod, and it gave me an error message "Attempting to copy to the disk "My iPod" failed. The disk could not be read from or written to." It doesn't copy a single item to the iPod. Thats not the best part, it wiped out all the songs on my iPod. So in short, no songs on iPod, and it won't update the songs to it. I suspect its the new firmware, but I can't find any older firmware, any help there? Its a 4G iPod Color 20GB.
