Hi everyone,
I updated to Sonoma B5 from Ventura 13.5.1 on an iMac 19,1.
I still use an iPod classic 160GB with iTunes, mainly for the podcast.
I have been able to get the above configuration run smoothly in Ventura.
After the upgrade to Sonora iTunes works fine (plays songs, streaming radios links as before), but when I connect the iPod to iMac iTunes pos up the message:
iTunes cannot read the contents of the iPod “iPod”. Go to the Summary tab in iPod preferences and click Restore to restore this iPod to factory settings.
In console the log message is:
System Policy: iTunes(5777) deny(1) file-write-flags /Volumes/iPod/iPod_Control/Music/*.
I tried to add iTunes to the list of applications in the Full Disk Access in System settings without success.

Is there a way to avoid to restore the iPod?
