Its giving an error message saying there is nothing for OS X to read. What's the problem, thanks everybody - Josh Comments Reply 1 of 5 thuh freak Posts: 2,664member February 11, 2003 1:17PM ur 'pod may be formatted for windows (fat32, i thnk). i'm not too sure how to check (maybe disk utility). if u dont have anything on it, u could just reformat it. Reply 2 of 5 gordy Posts: 1,004member February 11, 2003 3:58PM Try switching FireWire ports. The one you're using may be bad.EDIT: Also, run Console.app before pluging in the iPod. See if you can discern any error from what the Console says.[ 02-11-2003: Message edited by: gordy ]</p> Reply 3 of 5 vaultingat Posts: 76member February 12, 2003 1:57AM It's an old 5gb mac iPod that I've had for a while and has always worked fine. I'm on a powerbook so only have one firewire port. I have nothing essential on the iPod itself and so am fine with reformatting, but if I reformat in disk utility, will the software still recognize it as an iPod and not just as an external hard drive. Thanks for your help. Reply 4 of 5 burn Posts: 49member February 12, 2003 10:19AM See next message.Thanks Defiant!
