I believe that the iPod 5.5Gen (the current 30/80GB iPod) and the Shuffle 2Gen both will require iTunes 7. I probably should have thought to mention that in my post above. I'm sorry if this caused anyone further grief (none of us need any further grief when trying to work with iTunes 7).
I would suggest to all that agree that iTunes 7 is a terrible program to tell Apple about it:http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html
Try to be as explicit as possible about what your problems are by describing exactly what you did and how you believe iTunes is misbehaving.
For anyone who was disappointed that the "leave this iPod in the source list" option was removed (as far as I know this was only available for the Shuffle), then remember to mention that to Apple as well.
If we want to keep Apple from releasing s*** like iTunes 7 in the future, we all have to put their asses to the fire when they do mis-step (otherwise they may devolve into MS!). Let them hear your displeasure!
