Title says it all. I'm on Mac with the latest iTunes and it doesn't recognize my iPod anymore although it mounts to the desktop. I tried all and everything but it doesn't work (the iPod works on other Macs though, it itself is fine).

How can I copy my music to the iPod without going through iTunes? Are there any tools like on Windows for this?

Just to clear things up, would you at all be interested in diagnosing why your iPod will not work with iTunes or are you strictly looking for a solution to load music onto the iPod without iTunes? – fideli Jan 28 '10 at 5:39

1 Answer 1 from mozilla I think has ipod support now. It's free also. is another good cross platform app.

Well YamlPod didn't work. Gotta try Songbird now. – ron Jan 28 '10 at 7:11
