iPod not registering - 02/04/13 08:34 AM

I just bought a used iPod and am working through the set-up procedure. In most respects it seems to be working well. I have an internet connect and have synched with my computer. However, the device is not registering as a disc on my desktop. This leaves me puzzled about how I can transfer to the iPod. I figured it would ea drag-n-drop operation, but I cant see the device to drag to.

I have tried three separate USB ports and re-started my Mac to see if that would joggle it. It hasn't. Any suggestions?

Read through the whole page in the link below. Only certain models allow you to go disk mode. I don't know which model you have.

Use iTunes to load stuff on it.

That's only for iOS apps that support file sharing.

From his post I'm thinking he wants to use it like a flash drive to transfer any kinds of files.

From the reviews it seems it's just to transfer files to your device and open them from there, not real USB drive emulation where you can plug it from one machine to another.
