iPod no longer mounts - Mac Applications & Software

Hi, I have an old 450 MHz iMac, and I was trying out a friend's iSight camera last night... I plugged it in but nothing happened and iChat AV wouldn't let me videoconference. Ok, good enough. But now, my iPod isn't recognized by the computer at all-- it's as if it's not attached at all. No matter what I do (restart the computer, reset the iPod, jiggle/reinsert all the cables, etc.), I can't make the Mac mount the iPod on the desktop, or get iTunes to see it. This all worked great before I tried the iSight camera... I know ...

    Default iPod no longer mounts

    Hi, I have an old 450 MHz iMac, and I was trying out a friend's iSight
    camera last night... I plugged it in but nothing happened and iChat AV
    wouldn't let me videoconference. Ok, good enough.

    But now, my iPod isn't recognized by the computer at all-- it's as if
    it's not attached at all. No matter what I do (restart the computer,
    reset the iPod, jiggle/reinsert all the cables, etc.), I can't make
    the Mac mount the iPod on the desktop, or get iTunes to see it. This
    all worked great before I tried the iSight camera... I know the
    connection/cable is good because the iPod will charge when it's
    docked, but the Mac just won't see it.

    Any idea what's up? I have a hard time believing that the iPod or the
    Firewire jack suddenly went bad, so I think it might be a system
    software glitch, or something. I was guessing that reinstalling Jaguar
    might be the next step (ugh) but I'm hoping there's something less
    drastic I can try first.

    The Apple web site, btw, says basically "reset the iPod, put in disk
    mode, and if you still don't see it on the desktop, the iPod probably
    needs repairing." I find that hard to believe.

    thanks,

    Oops, please disregard. The system sw was messed up--- I installed
    WebObjects and in the process of "optimizing" that installation, it
    must have fixed things; when I rebooted the iPod was recognized and
    updated. Yay :-)

    best
