MacFixit reports a problem and solution regarding iTunes 4.2. “We previously reported an issue where iTunes 4.2 crashes shortly after connecting an iPod (under Mac OS X 10.3.x) The crash generally results both in the iPod not getting updated and a force-quit required for iTunes. Some users have had success disconnecting all other external peripherals - particularly FireWire devices other than the iPod (and USB components), but for others the problem persists under the same conditions. Reverting to Mac OS X 10.2.x also alleviates the problem.”

I’ve had nothing but problems with my 15GB 3G iPod since “upgrading” to Panther.  The computer usually doesn’t recognize the iPod and the little thing just sits there making a muted clicking sound (no, the hard drive isn’t bad).

All I can do is keep rebooting and plugging it back in until it’s recognized.  Never had a bit of a problem with Jaguar.
