    I have had problems with my Ipod (original 10gb) since I installed Panther.

    The Ipod is not recognised on the desktop or in Itunes but does charge when plugged into the firewire of my Imac. I put the pod on a friends ibook and it was recognised so I figure the problem must be in hardware or Panther.

    Is there any way of running some sort of check to see if the firewire ports are the problem. I don't have access to any other firewire devices to check that way.

    I have tried reset the Ipod-no joy.

    All updates have been downloaded om both mac and pod and I'm at a loss as to what to do without taking it to he repair shop to be checked.

    Any advice appreciated

    i had the same problem, intermittantly, with my 2nd Gen 10GB iPod. It went away when i upgraded from 10.3.0 to 10.3.2 with the combo installer.

    See also the thread "ipod won't mount" in this forum.
