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.

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.

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.
