-That special firewire cable might be the problem. Use the cable for the iPod. If you don't have one, get one, even a USB 2.0 would be better. Apple has them for about $19.99.
-Does the computer see the iPod as a hard drive? Look in 'my computer' when it is connected.
i have this same problem as well..
my ipod DOES get recognized in my computer as a hard drive.. i can see the calendar folder, and a few other folders.
but itunes does NOT recognize the ipod.. when i install.. it comes up with the pop up screen "do you want to configure your ipod now?" and i click yes.. and it just doesn't do anything; it keeps popping up without advancing.. i assume this is because it's not detected.
can anybody help with this problem? it's been driving me nuts.
