when I connect my ipod to my MBP, iTunes misrecognizes it as iPhione 4S. It then locks up at Backup (sequence 2 of 7). What do I need to do to correct this issue?
Does your iPod have the same name as your iPhone 4S under Devices in the left hand pane of iTunes? If so, give it a unique name by double clicking its current name under Devices and typing a new one.
Otherwise, reboot the Mac and the iPod and reconnect them.
