it seems that when installing my new ipod, it's taken the drive letter formerly associated with an external hard drive, k:\ (note that i did not have the hard drive connected during the ipod's installation). as a result, the hard drive does not show up anywhere, not even when the ipod isn't connected (and could plausibly be 'taking' its position).
what am i to do? i've tried entering all 26 letters of the alphabet as drives in the address bar with no luck. restoring is a lost cause, seeing as how it tells me that changes made to k:\ cannot be reversed.
help is much appreciated, and let me know if the problem isn't clear enough.
