no iTunes mount

History

My iPod 1st generation still runs, still charges, still . . . lives. It will mount as a Device on iTunes, however.

Performed all the reset routines, the internal diagnostics, tried different machines and cables. Examined and cleaned the pins.

Any ideas? Taking it apart to look for bad solder right now.

You said "It will mount as a device..." - did you mean to say it will NOT mount? And presumably you are using a Firewire cable, correct?

bac,

Yep, my typo. Will not mount via Firewire on any computer. Tried straight 400 and 400-800 cables. It does charge, it does play. I disassembled it. The solder joints on the logic board look OK at the FW port.

swiftdavid,

Does the iPod show up in Disk Utility? Sometimes a disk that won't mount will show up in Disk Utility and can be mounted from there. (You could also run disk repairs on it there, which might clear up the problem.)

DiskWarrior and Disk Util won't mount the bugger. Thanks, Mr 790.
