I got a 30 gig black 5th gen ipod (aka video ipod). I first connected it to my windows xp. Then I wanted to get some music from my sister's ibook. I plugged it in, but the ipod doesn't show on itunes. It only shows on the desktop and in finder. Any ideas how I can get it to show in itunes so I can get that music on it? It's 370 songs, so more than I can burn on a cd.

What is a zip drive? Does re formatting take all the files off my ipod?

Yeah. If you reformatted it, not only would it clear your music, but then it wouldn't show up on your computer and you'd have to take it in to get it reformatted to windows again.

Think of it this way. Apple sells two kinds of iPods, iPods for macs and iPods for windows. Technically, they are the same ipod, just formatted to different systems, so you trying to get your iPod to show up on her computer is like her buying a windows iPod for her mac. It just doesn't work that way.

Here's a zip drive (aka a flash drive, zip stick, etc.)
