Last December, you might remember that I was having problems getting my iPod to mount on my G5. Having tried all manner of fixes - resetting firewire ports, restarting iPod, rubbing Marmite into the play/pause button whilst simultaneously placing a paper clip into the headphone socket for 3 seconds, singing The Safety Dance at half speed. Nothing.
After giving up hope of ever getting the little bugger to show itself to iTunes, Finally I’ve found a solution that works, thanks to this post on the Apple forums. Thank you Stefano Stefani, you rock (as the kids say).
