    Hey guys, I recently found my old iPod Mini. I figured I would plug it in and use it with my old FM Transmitter to use in the car.

    Here's the scenario: I Let a friend borrow this iPod from me for about a year. She used Windows and her own music, and I'm pretty sure used "Manually Manage Music" to get the songs on it.

    The iPod appears on my desktop, but only has one folder in it, which has one song in it...none of the other music can be found. It says "600 MB" is available, but it's a 4 gig iPod.

    I want to try to restore it, but the iPod Mini won't appear in iTunes. I don't care about losing the music on the iPod, because it isn't my music. Do newer versions of iTunes recognize iPod Minis?

    How can I restore this Mini without using it in iTunes, or how do I get the iPod mini to show up in iTunes?

    Thanks guys.

    I have reset it, but it still doesn't appear in iTunes, although it did bring iTunes to the front of all my other applications (it was already open.)

    Any other ideas?
