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.

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

Cute!

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

My pretty pink shuffle refurb is now St. Therese.
