I know, shameless. Putting her name up there just so you read this post. My iPod stopped showing up on my Mac. Just *poof*. It is formatted for Windows because I use it on both my Mac and my PC. It worked fine for six months this way. I have the newest iPod. Now, I hook it up with the dock connector and the cable, or just the cable to my Powerbook G4's FireWire port, and it will start charging and continue charging - but doesn't show up on the desktop as an extended drive, and doesn't show up in iTunes. I try running any of the numerous software updaters that are out there, and of course they don't "see" the iPod either. I didn't do anything or change anything on my iPod recently. My Panther software updater downloaded the 1.3.1 update, but it didn't install it on my iPod since that's for the older generation ones anyway. I've done all the common steps like restarting my machine, restarting my iPod. Any ideas?
