Hey Folks -
The other day, my iPod shuffle refused to mount on my Powerbook. The USB ports on the 'book work fine with an external hard drive, so I think they're ok.
Currently it will play, and all controls on the shuffle work, but it will not charge off of the Powerbook (12" G4 1.5), nor will it show up in iTunes or Disk Utility. The light on the shuffle does flash green briefly when it's hooked onto a USB port. No other lights showed when hooked up (the disk use light should show).
The shuffle itself is a 1gig model purchased just after their release.
I expect I'll have to break it open to have a look. Does anyone know a 'safe' way to open these?
I think I feel a hack coming on...
