I have actually had a similar prob with my Ipod video that I purchased a couple of days ago. It used to automatically load my 6 gig library on it...but I cannot change stuff manuallly. I just used the original Ipod updater that I installed from the CD to restore settings..i.e., format. Apparently for some reason the newer updater didn;t recognise the ipod. I formatted....then updated to new version ...then set file adding to manual and enabled disk use. Now works perfect.
