Installing Jaguar on iPod disables files System
I installed Jaguar (10.2.6) on my iPod today so I could use it to image multiple machines, and after doing so, I discovered that I could not listen to any of the files I had purchased from I simply plugged in the iPod and re-copied them from iTunes and all is well again. I have no idea what exactly causes this, but I thought I'd share it just in case anybody who happens to be an subscriber has plans to turn their iPod into a mobile utility drive.

I'm just guessing here, but don't iPods usually have the "Ignore ownership on this volume" attribute set to true? I suspect that installing Jaguar would un-set that attribute, and that may affect the way that Audible files are decoded for playback. Just speculating.

I often have the same issue come up after I plug my iPod into any system running OS 9. If their iTunes launches, it messes up my Audible files. I need to re-copy them.

I have had the same problem. I found that if restore the iPod then manage my iPod manually, my audible files work fine. If I use Automatic update my audible files stop working. I figured this out when my wifes ipod was playing audible files fine and mine had stopped working. She manually managed her iPod (she has way to many mp3s), and I was automatically managing my iPod.
Hope this helps

The Audible files on my 15GB iPod stop working from time to time as well. And I've never installed a Mac OS on it. I'm running 10.2.6 on my 800 FP iMac, managing my iPod manually, and still have to occasionally recopy Audible files to the iPod. I suppose we should mention it to Audible and/or Apple. But it's never been too big of an issue for me. Well, except for trying to remember where I left off listening. A bookmark feature would be nice. Or is there one of which I am woefully unaware?
