    Mounts as in iPod shuffle on my desktop. I don't think it always did though, I'm sure it only did it after I reset it a few weeks back. Maybe it will have the right icon after you run yesterdays software update on it.

    I don't have a shuffle, but I do know that after applying the latest security patch my old iPod now displays as a generic hard drive. I tried repairing permissions, but still no cute iPod picture.

    Hate to resurrect an old thread but it's better than starting a new one right



    Did anyone ever resolve the 'generic disk' icon issue? I have my 40gb iPod connected and my desktop just doesn't look the same without an iPod icon to sit comfortably next to its iPod shuffle counterpart.
