I'm having a bit of trouble with my ipod (1st gen 5gb, firmware uptodate, itunes uptodate), I have it set to manual update as my preference. Nearly everytime i plug it in, it shows up on the desktop but not on itunes. A wiggle of the firewire used to fix it and sometimes it dosn't happen at all. I can't think it would be a problem with the cable as the ipod shows up on the d'top instantly. I've restored and reformatted a number of times but the problem persists. Anyone got a diagnosis for my ailment?
