After erasing the iPod in Disk Utility, by default it would be HFS+ (Mac file system), which would explain why it would show up then. But after restoring in iTunes or in Windows, it would be FAT32. If your computer is having trouble recognizing Windows-formatted disks, that would explain it. If this is the case, you would probably need to perform an archive install of Mac OS X.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 19, 2007 9:11 PM (in response to toonz)I plugged my Lexar Mercury thumbdrive in for the first time since my reinstall and installed the encrypted vault program that came with it, Secure II. My iPod was not recognized again! But by deleting the LexarFilterScheme.kext file out of the /System/Library/Extensions/ folder and restarting, I was able to use my Shuffle again. I don't really use the encrypted vault feature anyway... this is a much quicker solution!12" Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
