The IPOD may be Obsolete in Apple's eyes and will not be recognized by CURRENT iTunes software. Happened to me today--- My great IPOD Click Wheel is old but was working great. If i had not been updating my iTunes -- it would still work. Now it is a paperweight.


@ceej at the time this question was asked, the iPod Classic series was only about 2 years old. So not likely that Apple considered it quite obsolete yet.

I use a 3rd gen Apple iPod and use an old version iTunes without any difficulties.

What version of iTunes do you have? You may need to update to the latest version, that could solve your problem.
