Mac: iPod does not appear in iPod Updater or iTunes fix

Updated

Apple has posted a Knowledge Base document outlining a possible fix for when the iPod does not appear in the iPod Updater (v2.2 2004-04-28) or iTunes. “Under some circumstances, iPod appears in the Finder in Mac OS X, but does not appear in the iTunes Source list or does not appear in the iPod Updater.” Several iLounge forum members have reported having the same problem.

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
