What is the other section that appears when you connect your ipod? And how do you get rid of it if only hogging space? Thanks

I have a 4G 60GB iPod Photo that today has given up the ghost after recently updating to the most current iTunes 7 version. I have not noticed iPod software updates for my iPod for what seems like a little less than a year (my iPod is about 2 years old). iTunes always says my iPod has the latest software version. Today my iPod stopped working so I rebooted it by flipping the hold button and then holding down the center button and menu button at the same time. When it came back on it appeared to have rebooted but none of my files were showing up on the iPod. It was as if they all got erased. I thought I could just restore the iPod in iTunes (and when I plugged it in, iTunes said it had become corrupted and needed to be restored) but then it gave me a message saying iTunes could not locate the software needed to restore my iPod. It seems that iTunes 7 was not meant to work with 4G iPods. I tried uninstalling iTunes and using the disc that originally came with my iPod. This seemed to work as it did reformat the iPod. But now iTunes will not recognize my iPod at all. I can see it in WinXP “MY COMPUTER” folder, but iTunes refuses to recognize the iPod. I have tried to re-install iTunes multiple times. I have deleted my temp files. I have turned on and off the iPod service (per the iTunes help page). I have rebooted my computer over and over. I have tried to get iTunes to recognize the 4G iPod on other computers but nothing helps. I don’t think I should have to go out and buy a new iPod when mine was fine just yesterday (and is only 2 years old). This really pisses me off! And now I hear that it is happening to other “older” model iPod owners too.

Is there a way we can all band together and force apple to make our iPods work again? I LOVE my iPod and hate the idea of being without it…...or going to another type of player (but I might switch to the one being offered by Dish Network as it would allow me to copy programs from my DVR as well as my music). BUT WHAT I REALLY WANT IS MY iPOD TO WORK AGAIN. An iPod should last longer than 2 years! [Actually it is only a little over 1 year old as the first iPod I had bricked when the hard drive quit working and was repalced after about 9 months of service].

My ipod 40gB had been fine.  Until itunes 7.  Then it crashed big time.  Three days later I’m back to itunes 6.0.4.2 and all seems to be on the way to being fixed.  DON’T USE ITUNES 7. You’ve been warned!
