Not just me...

Ok, so apparently I'm not the only one having iPod connection problems. At this moment, this thread on iPodlounge is 233 messages long, with the general consensus being that it's an iPod firmware problem with no real solution. You either have problems or you don't, and if you have problems there's no easy or foolproof fix.

Now that I have Firewire working, though, I'm just not going to mess with USB for a little while. I'll revisit it in a couple weeks and try the scorched-earth strategy a few people have advocated in that thread - uninstalling and reinstalling all of the Apple software and reformatting the iPod through Windows (as Apple themselves suggest on their site).

What a pain in the butt.

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
