    I used this iPod (new) previously on my husbands PC. I recently purchased a refurbished iBook G4 and it works great with the exception of not recognizing my iPod! When I plug it in, it give me the error message:

    Disc Insertion - The disc you inserted was not readable by this computer.

    What does this mean? It has been a while since I've used a mac. I've tried restarting my iPod both off and on the mac with no change. I'm worried I'll lose all my music.

    Have also tried repairing and verifying with no results.

    Hi, I just joined the forum. I had a similar problem going from PC to my own iBook. Have you tried restoring the iPod through iTunes? That did the trick for me, although you will lose anything you have stored on it. It worked for my Nano and iTouch.
