I followed the directions I pasted below, from an older Forum discussion on this subject. But when I plugged my ipod in, the 8.2 version of iTunes said I had to update it. So I deleted my previous iTunes library for nothing, it seems.All,
I have an Ipod 80Gb classic and hadnt connected it to my mac / ITunes for a good few months. I connected it and ITunes wouldnt pick it up, it would however show up on the desktop and mount correctly. I tried alot of things on this forum but nothing seemed to work.
I just want to share this with you incase you too have been bitten by ITunes Version 9.x
1) Remove ITunes completely from your MAC / PC. For MAC I used 'CleanApp' which ensures all components of an application are removed. But you could do it manually if you know where all the files are if any left behind.
2) Open up your IPod in 'Disk Utility' and delete the partition. Then re-verify and repair if prompted from the verify.
3) Remove the IPod from the MAC / PC and reboot the MAC / PC.
4) Download and Install ITunes 8.2 - you can download this anywhere, just google it. Then once installed, reboot.
5) Then connect your IPod, you will most likely get an error saying that your Ipod has been found but its been unable to communicate with it.
6) Install IPod Support Tools from the MAC OSX CD, reboot.
