I installed an external drive. Ipod normally connects to E:, was replaced by the external drive. When I plugged my iPod after this, it asks for a reformat. Also, it somehow managed to uninstall my cardreader, set as F: G: H: I:. Even after changing back the drive names (setting the iPod as E: again) it doesn't work. Connecting the iPod won't even show itself as an external disk, only freeze the computer and deliver the error msg.
Problem might solve by a reformat. But I've used the iPod as an external disk and I have data that I don't want to loose.

Depending on your iPod, may have to go see if there is a driver on-line to download and reinstall on your computer. Short of that, you may want to try a DEFRAG, or else try and go back to a RESTORE past RESTORE point and see what happens. Even try Virus Scan and Ad-Aware scan for Bugs that may have infected the file that reads your iPod. Try to think of any software updates you may have made shortly to the iPod not be identified...
It really doesnt matter, you will just have to have the hard drive plugged in when you sync you ipod or want to listen to music with your ipod. The only thing i have to say about it is if the external hard drive is if its connected to your computer with a USB rather than a firewire, then it might be slower to load than if you keep it on an internal hard drive. But it will work and wont be very slow, just slower.
the IPOD USB is attached to the USB port near the IPOD connector. If you follow that back you have to disconnect the ipod cable from the USB port then you can use the flash drive in that port. it is an either or situation.
The USB port is to be used with USB mass storage devices like flash drives, thumbdrive or external hard drives. The IPod's USB connection is not seen as a mass storage device it is proprietary. You need the iPod connection kit, part number KS-PD100 to connect your iPod to the deck.
ok...you are connect via usb? when using limewire, window media or itunes,,,,go to options on all them and change the directory where you like to store and retrieve files from...now for the files that you already have on the primary hard drive....go to my computer..you see both drives internal (is your c) and the external is ?) find the music on the c drive ..open it..cut & paste (or click & drag) to the new drive ....to copy this music onto your ipod...make sure you have the latest itunes version (WWW.APPLE.COM) once you have this on the desktop let it scan for all the music on pc....now plug ipod to pc...20-30 seconds your ipod will show up on itunes...look on the bottom of itunes left side (u see the ur ipod)...look up and click on the music folder on pc drive and all the music should now be showing too...click on that same folder drag down to the ipods music folder.......let it load up...it might take awile depending on how much you got .....not never ever pull ipod out always eject the ipod .......then unplug it............................
