    i have had this issue for a while, too.

    (Mac Air, OS 10.9, 160GB iPod Classic)
    today i was trying to sync new music and iTunes wasn't recognizing the iPod.

    i opened Disk Utility which saw the iPod. i left Disk Utility open, launched iTunes and then iTunes saw it.

    i left DU open while i did all my syncing and playlist management on the iPod and it all worked, smoothly.

    seems ike a strange fix - but, it worked.

    Yes found out the same issue. Apple forget 'bout support for older generations IPods. Its simple kapitalist politics...force the consumer to consume things they don't want. But I don't need facetime,photos, front&back camera or whatever, I just want to listen to music & the old iPod classic 160Gig is one of the best options to cover Ur entire music catalog.

    I have a smartphone to do all the rest.

    Could only hope for crying out loud, that some apple fecker reads this User forum & order an update release.

    So warning don't update ur ITunes to 11.3 if U own the classic 1-2-3th generation IPod

    No already tried two cables.

    Imo older gen. Ipods arent supported anymore.

    Hope they get this problem fixed, becuz plenty users have issues with their iPods after latest ITunes upgrade.

    No U are doomed and lost all have ur music.

    Latest ITunes update forgot that ther are still older iPods 'round that don't have camera's, wifi connections and so on. Blame Apple for this.

    I also lost 100gig of music, so we both are doomed.

    I don't wanna a feckin iPod with a camera, I just want my music back.

    I'm not sure if this solution has been posted before. But I was having no luck syncing my audiobooks to my 80gb ipod classic, from Itunes 11. It wasn't an issue before on earlier versions.


    I changed media kind from audiobook to podcast (as they were showing up) no luck.

    In the end it turned out i hadn't authorised my new apple ID to play the purchased audiobooks on my mac (i had a windows laptop prior) Once i authorised the playback, my audiobooks all synced.


    I realise this won't apply to every user, but if you recently changed your computer or created a new apple ID. this could be an explaination.


    Anyway, Merry Christmas.
