Mac: Connect iPod, iTunes crashes in OS X 10.3

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.”
