Hey guys, just found this thread today.
It seems that people who have the least amount of problems have the latest 7G. Is this the case? I'm planning on buying used so I will have to find a 7G.
Also, the instructions say to install iTunes. Is this necessary? I'm not a fan of having to install iTunes on any computer I own...
Read the instructions carefully, they ask if you have iTunes installed. If you choose no, you'll go to the other method with the winusb drivers, which also works fine.
I have the 6G 80GB and it works fine, no problem/crash at all in the last 7 months (r868/121007)
Edit: this option; Install a custom device driver for the iPod (advanced users only)
