i have a new gen 15gb ipod with docking station hooked up to my 15in powerbook via firewire. it was updating perfectly up until the past couple of days. now, everytime i plug the ipod in, it doesn't update...my ipod shows on the desktop, but itunes isn't launched, and the ipod doesn't register in itunes. i've tried rebooting with the unit plugged in, rebooting w/o and then plugging in, ejecting and plugging back in, but to no avail!! i'm going on a trip soon, and need to get my newly purchased albums onto the ipod. any suggestions? i've done a software update, and everything is up to date. what am i doing wrong here??

thanks in advance!

Hey there,

Have you adjusted the iPod's settings recently? Perhaps you're in manual updating mode? Not sure if this would cause this, but it's worth a try. Check to make sure other settings are as they should be.

Have you tried repairing your PB's permissions via Disk Utility?
