Ive just installed the latest version of itunes and everytime I connect the ipod mini to the pc all I get come up is a box saying rachel's (my name) IP (I:) and there are 3 folders; calendar, contacts and notes.

Anyone know what to do to get ipod back so I can transfer songs to my ipod

Thanks

    Does your mini show up in Explorer, but just not in iTunes? If so, this link may help.

    Would it be possible to try an alternate USB or firewire port to see if the problem might be there?

    Steve, I'm sorry, but you have already posted about your connection issue several time in the past couple of days. You need to stick with one of your original posts rather than piggybacking on someone else's thread & causing a disruption of the original poster's thread. It can be very difficult to follow what's going on troubleshooting when you have a bunch of people jumping in on the thread with what may be a similar but unrelated issue. Thanks!

    In looking at your other posts, at no point in time did you start your own topic, you piggybacked on the other thread. It's always suggested that you start your own topic rather than posting in the manner that you have done. I would suggest you go back to the "Connecting color iPod" forum, start your own topic, & hang tight to see if someone comes along. You will have to be patient, remember it's the weekend & people have other things to do besides hang out in the forums. Thanks!
