I have a 1st gen 5Gb iPod and it just says OK to disconnect when it is pluged into the computer. I don't think the cable broken or anything because the iPod knows it is plugged into the computer. Could the reason be for my friend "accidently" dropping a poloroid camera on it? Or just because it is almost 3 years old? It is a windows format(even though I have a mac) and I have been able to put music on it eaisily before. I just was never able to update it for some reason. I went on a PC in atempt to update it but it also dosen't detect it. It plays music just fine. It just dosen't seem like the computer even knows it's there. I am going to Europe in 5 days and I don't want to not be able to bring it. PLEASE HELP!
