    I've just upgraded my g4 Powerbook to Mac 10.4, all went sweet.
    Then plugged in my Ipod (60GB) and when it goes to pop up Itunes, it says..

    "itunes cannot read the contents of the iPod. Use the iPod Software Updater application to restore the iPod to factory settings."

    I see the icon on my desktop when I plug in the ipod, and I can 'browse' it (at very very very slow speed), but I can't do anything with it anymore!

    When I try the ipod updater, the only option it gives me is to 'Factory Settings Reset'!!
    I can't do that, as I'll lose all my stuff :(

    Any ideas?

    The easiest solution's probably to get all your stuff off it using another computer (maybe your old one that worked properly with it) and then letting your new Mac reinstall the firmware. I can't think why this would have happened but hopefully it'll work with another computer. :)
