I have a fairly new iPod touch G4. I've noticed that the icon doesn't appear on the desktop when it's connected to a USB port, but I figured it didn't matter that much since I could eject it though iTunes. However, I wonder if this might be related to a problem I had today. I installed an application called Overdrive so that I could download ebooks from the library. I managed to check out and download a book through Overdrive, but I can't use the transfer function to get it over to the iPod. I get an error message saying Overdrive can't find a portable device--despite the fact that the iPod is unquestionably plugged in. Just once, during multiple attempts to make the transfer, it seemed to work, that is it recognized the iPod, but then I got a message saying there wasn't enough space for the book. I deleted some things and got set to try again, but I could never again get Overdrive to recognize the iPod. Also, at one point Overdrive indicated that I had "zero" space left for the book, when in fact I was only using about half the memory. I have no idea whether this is a problem with Overdrive, my desktop Mac, or the iPod. Any thoughts?
