I have a iPod 5th gen (A1136), and when I connect it to my iMac or Macbook it will quickly mount, but it will only remain mounted if I begin to sync it in iTunes or else it will unmount itself immediately. iTunes will still recognize it and I still have the option to sync it (and it charges), but it will not mount to my desktop thus preventing me from using the iPod via Disk Utility. The reason I want to use via Disk Utility is because I want to load Mac OS X onto the iPod and use it as a boot loader in order to install Mac OS X on another machine. It's the only option I have since I do not own a flash drive, or external drive. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.


I am using iTunes 10.6.3 (on both machines)  and my Macbook is running OS X 10.7.4 and my iMac is running OS X 10.8
