    Hi everyone - I'm new to MacRumors and this is my first post.

    I have a refurb iPod shuffle 2G. It works perfectly and has completely cured me of my previous refurb-anxiety. But when I open iTunes with it, there was never a prompt for me to give it a name. It shows up simply as "iPod" in the directory.

    Is there a way to name a refurb?

    (It's probably something ridiculously simple like: Right-click then choose "rename".)

    Simple or not, many thanks for your help. :)

    You can click on the iPod on the source list on the left side of iTunes and name it whatever you like there.

    Double click on the it on the left to rename it, clicking once will merely highlight it

    Oh what fun - I'm glad I'm not the only person who likes to name things. :D

    Unlike my husband who doesn't even care to name the cat.

    Thanks all!

    Thanks all, for your fast advice. It worked: double-clicking on the name of my refurb (which was simply "iPod") to rename it was easy and quick. Now she has an identity . . .

    Thanks again - :D

    I called my ipod6g: coole runie (it's a ridiculous name from a cartoon serie)

    Cute!

    Well this Old Lady is Catholic and my iPods are named after saints.

    My pretty pink shuffle refurb is now St. Therese.
