You won't be able to add music that shows up on the iPod without using iTunes or another program that can build the database. Try installing iTunes then plugging your iPod into another USB port. You may need to configure itues prior to hooking up the ipod. ???? EDIT: By the way....all USB ports are hot swappable and are powered ports!!! That has nothing to do wiht the recognition of the ipod as a mass storage device. It will charge with the puter shut down!!!
