iPod doesn't show up in iTunes - Mac Applications & Software

After over a year of use and having no problems whatsover, suddenly my iPod does not show up in iTunes. I am using the earlier 10GB iPod and iTunes 4.0.1. The iPod mounts on the desktop OK, but will not show up, in iTunes. I have tried: 1) "resetting" the iPod (holding down menu and play simultaneously) 2) plugging and unplugging the Firewire cord 3) quitting and restarting iTunes, and 4) restarting the computer itself. Am I leaving anything out? Like I said, this problem came on suddenly, and everything was fine until today. Any help would be greatly appreciated!...

    Default iPod doesn't show up in iTunes

    After over a year of use and having no problems whatsover, suddenly my
    iPod does not show up in iTunes. I am using the earlier 10GB iPod and
    iTunes 4.0.1. The iPod mounts on the desktop OK, but will not show up,
    in iTunes.

    There are a number of threads about this over on the Apple support forums.
    First, did you download the security update? That seems to be the link with
    some posters. Other things to try -

    1) Repair permissions
    2) Erase the iPod preferences or create a new user (which does the same
    thing). Log in as the new user and then go to iTunes and try to connect.
    If that works then some people have said they can go back to their normal
    log-in and it will still work.
    3) Re-set the firewire ports. Turn off your computer, unplug all firewire
    devices and unplug your computer for 15 minutes.

    I had a similar problem, except that my iPod would not show up on the
    desktop. I retored the software and that seemed to have fixed things.
