My ipod classic (160gb) appears on the desktop in Finder, but does not appear in iTunes. I have tried resetting the ipod, using different cords, uninstalling/reinstalling iTunes, and putting the ipod into disk mode. Other than this problem my ipod works perfectly, it plays all my music, doesn't freeze or anything, I just can't get it to show up in iTunes. Any ideas? I don't want to have to lose all my music, because I'm not sure I have it all backed up. But even so, I can't get it into iTunes to wipe it anyways. It's been a couple months and I am out of ideas!
