BNIB 2nd Generation 20 GB IpodLINK
Yep that right! I just picked it up yesterday, from a guy who had misplaced it 6 years ago and just found it, all new and shiny never used, with box and everything, the only thing missing are the ear plugs, except for that everything is there...(case, bag, remote, cable, charger)
Now when he gave it to me I charged it up and everything worked except itunes could not recognize it, and I read about some people with recent Classic ipods who have iTunes 09 and Snow Leopard having the same problem, and that's what I got.
So I made an appointment this afternoon with the Genius bar @ Eaton Centre to see if they could help on this.
They had a laugh looking at the ipod and by the looks of it they new it was brand new also...
So we try have it recognized by itunes but the same problem, it loades up in Finder and we can see and modify the files in there like a removable HD, but itunes wont recognize it..so one of the guys tells the chick to boot it up in Tiger with itunes 8.
So she does that and we see it in itunes 8 and then she loads a song in to see if it will accept and it does but when she disconnects it we lose the ipod....now only the apple comes up and an icon with an exclamation mark, we hook it back and try a restore but still nothing..and do a manuall reset on the ipod but nothing still, she said some employee in their store is carrying around a 2gen 10 GB model and maybe he'll be able to help cause I may need iTunes 3 to restore the firmware, he wasn't in today.
So she's booked my in to see this guy for Thursday and see if he can help me out.
I'm not really looking into using this ipod, and even if I can't load a song on it I just want it back to where it was, when I could scroll on it and go into menus and stuff, now I'm kicking my self, shoud've just recharged it and left in the box, just got curious to see if it would work with today's machines.....
In the meantime does anyone have any ideas here that I can try..?
Or just in-case this dude can't help me out can someone help me boot this back up , can someone who has an old MAC running itunes 3,4 or an older OSX help me boot this back up?
I'd really appreciate getting this baby back up..
