Careful......

Careful...... - 04/28/04 07:00 AM

I just installed iTunes 4.5.1 with no problem. I then installed the iPod update with no problem....except that iTunes no longer recognizes my iPod.<br>It shows up on the desktop and is recognized as a hard drive and even starts iTunes when upon restart. The two choices (whether to erase and upgrade or keep the library in place) were greyed out and it keeps telling me to plug in my iPod. Yes, I have tried all the combinations of plugging and unplugging.<br>If nobody else has the same problem, I will have to retrace my install steps. <br>I will not panic...........I will not panic.............yet.<br>

Sorry to hear that. Not sure what the problem might be, but don't panic! <br><br>

I'm sure that Apple may know about this. I can't be the only one with the issue...........can I?<br><br>

Fsck the machine, repair permissions, reboot, reinstall, then go lie down and take a nap.<br><br><br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>

Oh yes, the other thing it does is start iTunes when I plug the iPod in, but it doesn't "see" it. Go figure.<br>This is the new, relaxed me. Playing hooky and "supervising" the work on our patio, listening to my 'tunes and chillin. <br><br>

There seems to be a glitch. Back away from the computer and wait. Chill out and wait to see what everyone else is experiencing and see if there is a simple fix. I will keep on the lookout for you too. Grab a Margarita while you are at it for me...hehe<br><br><br>My Stuff

I just wish I had self control. I see an update and I am drawn to it.<br>But, more often than not, I am not disappointed. I think <br><br>

It was suggested in the Apple to upgrade the iPod on a Mac that hadn't upgraded iTunes yet. DUH!<br> I popped into the kitchen and was able to upgrade. I came back to the "upgraded iTunes" Mac and it works just fine. It took a few more seconds, but kicked in.<br>YAY!<br><br>
