For some reason my iPod has recently taken to not mounting under OS X. In classic it comes up sans problem. I have tried it on an iBook, and on my G4, both to no avail. I have re-installed the 1.2.1 updater but that doesn't seem to have worked either. Other than the (critical) mount issue, the iPod seems to be working without any problems. I can listen to music that is already on there fine, and all of the menus are in proper working order. But none of this does me any good if I cannot drag new music to it. So here's my question: Can I re-initialize the drive when the OS X drive utility prompt comes up without losing the software that makes the iPod... an iPod? Is that information resident in firmware, or will I have a mute hard drive after initialization? Booting into Classic just to use the iPod is not an option, btw. I want it to work correctly. Help!
