I have a 2nd gen ipod nano that won't connect to my macbook's or imac's iTunes 8.0. It shows up in finder, and when I plug it in, iTunes opens; it just doesn't show up in the sidebar where I can control it. However it does work fine on a PC.

-Confused.

Try resetting your iPod, that will probably solve the problem.

Connect it to Windows, restore it, then try again on the Mac.

This should solve you problem... but let me give you an explanation why, so you know whats going on. Since microsoft likes to corrupt everything apple. once you set-up a iPod on a windows machine a windows format file system is written onto your iPod. Restore it to factory settings but don't set-up your iPod onto the windows computer again. Instead plug it into your beautiful mac and make it a true iPod.

Once you go Mac you'll never go back.
