I tunes 10.7 Older mac mini, new ipod = problem.
For the 5G iPod you need iTunes 10.7 (or later) and that requires OSX 10.6.8 or later which requires and Intel Mac. If you have an Intel Mac Mini you can call Apple and order the Snow Leopard disk. It is not listed in the On-line Apple store.
I believe I have Snow Leopard already, however I will check later, Thanks again
