I got a new iPod classic (120GB) for Christmas.

I noticed the first time I put my iPod on hold and I connected it to my mac, it didn't register the device.

It had worked before of course. I did the hold plus menu and center button trick and it unfroze.

This is an issue I have come across several times.

I hope Apple will fix it in the iPod's next patch.

I have my photos and contacts synced so that may have something to do with the issue.

I posted this just in case this has happened to someone else, so they know what's going on.

Mac OS X 10.4.11
