I have done a search for the answer to this question on many forums but have not quite found the answer for me. I have a Generation 4 ipod classic and I am trying to connect to a 2009 Macbook pro.
The ipod charges fine from a wall power outlet, turns on powers up and everything looks as it should. I have nothing else connected to my usb ports. I have tried 3 or 4 different usb cables including a brand new genuine apple one and after market ones. I do not have the original cable for it. I have connected an ipod touch and an ipod Shuffle to the same usb port / ports with different cables and all ports and all cables work perfectly fine.
This leads me to believe that there is a particular cable needed for a 4th generation ipod classic, does anyone know if this is the case at all? Or that there is a fault with my ipod.
