I think my question comes down to, 'how can I downgrade to the previous version of iTune?'
FCP7 vs High Sierra 17 Oct 2017 12:11 #91156. It will not work with High Sierra. You would need to have a backup disk with an older OS to be able to run it. None of Apple's 32-bit applications will work any longer. Any advice would be appreciated.Specs: ASUS X99-A II Intel i7-6800K EVGA Geforce GTX 980 Corsair Vengence LPX 32GB (2 x 16G sticks) DDR4-3200BIOS: I have disabled CSM, VT-d, and changed my boot mode to Other OS and disabled secure bootResults from following Bob's guide: bootflags used: -v npci=0x2000 boot. When it was still Lion DiskMaker, DiskMaker X had the ability to burn DVDs too. Older versions are available here. Download DiskMaker 2.0.2 ( ZIP file, about 3 MB). Install macOS High Sierra on PC with Hackintosh macOS High Sierra Installer which doesnt need access to a mac to create a bootable Installer You can create bootable USB from Windows, Linux or Mac.
Here's the background...
After the bad idea of 'upgrading' to High Sierra, and working through an endless list of problems, I just ran into a new one. iTunes will no longer recognize my iPod. It's the Classic 160GB (the best iPod ever).
The iPod shows up in the System Report as a USB device. It also shows up on the desktop as a volume. Clearly the Mac recognizes it as an iPod and a working USB device.
iTunes refuses to show it in the list of devices.
In a chat with Apple support, I was told my iPod is no longer supported.
Looking in the Console, I found message from iTunes such as these. This seems to confirm that iTunes no longer recognizes or supports the iPod classic.
