Hi everybody, I have a brandnew iPod Photo which is already the cause for severe headaches! I installed everything from the original disc (iPod application and iTunes), connecteded my iPod (USB) and everything worked just fine. It showed up in the iTunes list and I transfered some music onto the iPod. I disconnected my iPod and still everything worked fine. Here's my problem: Now, if I want to rconnect to my computer, for example after a restart, iTunes does not recognize the iPod anymore. The harddrive of the iPod still shows up in the finder, but cannot be accessed anymore. I tried everything: - I disabled and removed Norton Utilities and Firewall completely - I tried to start iPod Updater (without success; it tells me that it cannot install any firmware, since the firmware for this iPod is not the right one (???) - I restarted my machine - I reset my iPod (still no changes) - finally I took my installation CD, made a complete reset and installed the software (except iTunes) again. And YES: it worked!!! Unfortunately only once! After I transfer my music and have the iPod back to mormal, disconnect it and reconnect it again, it once again does not recognize it anymore. Please help! What more can I do. What could cause the problem? Any other conflicting software? Some problem wit USB? It drives me crazy. I installed the same iPod on a friend's machine with the same system and everything seems to work fine there. It reads it immediately! Thanks for your help!!!!
