I spent like 30 minutes properly organizing my itunes before putting them on my iriver. then instead of dragging my icon to the trash. i just disconnected.


Well I reformatted my iriver and after plugging my iriver back in to try again, my ibook g4 wont recognize it. I've restarted both components but i just cant figure it out.

any suggestions?

IM me at myanchorsunk

firewire connection for the iriver? or usb?

assuming osx:

about this mac>more info>firewire or usb

see if it is even seeing the drive.

applications>utilities>disk utility

see if it sees the drive, and if the drive is mounted.
possibly repair permissions or reformat again.
i assume this is the way you reformatted the first time? and since it's not recognizing now, it's not showing up in disk utility?

try the freeware program mount me from version tracker if the drive boots but not mounts.

also, disconnect all the cables from the drive to computer, drive to powersource and to wall. wait 5 minutes and plug them back in. drive into computer last.

i gotta run or i'd im you. may try later. lemme know what happens!
