okay ive got the ipod mini and i went and bought a usb 2.0 card and installed it. working fine. so i installed itunes and updated it to current version and downloaded the current version of software for the ipod. when i try to transfer the songs to the ipod it wil say tranferring song 1 of 25 or whatever for about a second and then disappear. so i thought maybe it would be more compatible with firewire so i went and bought a firewire card. installed it and still the same problem. songs will not transfer to the ipod. i can transfer them as files on a removable storage device but not as music. playlists show up, but not the songs. somebody that knows what they're doing, please help. i'm about to take this thing back but i want it to work.
