Hi All, When I connect my iPod Classic iTunes freezes. Meaning I get the 'spinning ball of death', the iPod does show up in itunes but I don't get much further than 'verifying iPod' before it freezes. I have continuously had to force restart iTunes. The things I have tried are: • connecting the iPod to a different USB port & using a different USB chord. • Restarting my iMac & Repairing Disk permissions. The iPod Classic is appox 2 years old & is running 2.0.4 mac. The iMac is running mac OS 10.6.5 & has a 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo & 2 GB 667 MHz My apologies if this matter has been addressed before, but I couldn't find any info by searching the forums. Thanks for your help!
