My iPod has suddenly stopped working when connected to my mac & iTunes. It works when not connected to my mac, but when I connect it, iTunes doesn't recognise it. It still shows up on the desktop though. I've tried it on 2 macs, my work mac and my home mac, and it's happened on both.

I've got 4000+ songs on it, and don't want to have to go through the hassle of putting all my music back on to it, if I can help it. I can't even back it up.

Does anyone know if there's anything I can do? All my software is up to date (iTunes and iPod).

It just stopped working one day half way through a song! Very frustrating

Have you reset the iPod itself?

yer, ok,
you could,
plug it in, then hold the 2 reset keys (i dont quite remember the buttons but i think they are either: centre button & menu OR centre button & play)
HOLD them untill the ipod reboots with the connect to itunes symbol
(this may require a number of reboots in immediate secession)
