    it should work, but you may lose all the data on it. just get it on hard drive mode (check the users manual) and read the usbloader tutorial on the first page.

    I've had no luck getting my iPod to work.

    I've tried all manner of things to try and get my 80gig iPod video working and so far it hasn't. The farthest I've gotten is having the loader actually recognize the iPod as a USB device and list the partition for formatting. I select the partition, hit A to format, it says format was successful but then tells me I have 0.00 gigs free and 0.00 gigs used.

    I would wager a guess that if someone were able to format a WBFS partition in linux it MAY work, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Try installing something on it anyway; the program simply doesn't list the free/used space correctly no matter what kind of drive you use.

    Should have mentioned that I did try installing a game on it anyway, always gives me a code dump and upon reboot and re-entering the loader tells me a WBFS partition is not found and prompts for me to format again.

    I'm having this problem as well. Has anyone had any luck formatting an iPod to WBFS and put isos on it? If so, could you please explain how you did it?

    ipods are SCSI over USB. It's a slightly different mass storage driver.
    It's like when I was trying to use an iPod on my GP2X as a USB HDD it didn't have the right driver for that type of USB Mass storage device.

    Did you try forcing disc mode?

    Yep, I put it into disc mode, and it can't be formatted by either the USB Loader or the WBFS tool for Windows.

    I've read that the iPod needs a different USB Mass Storage driver, but where would I get these, and how would they work with WBFS/USB Loader?
