The new iPods do have some issues. Apple have implemented some kind of
encryption/hash that will only allows the iPod classic and new nano to
update/sync with iTunes.
I don't know if someone has figured out a work around yet, but its
just a matter of time. Personally I'd wait until Rockbox gets released
for the iPod Classic then buy one, as you then get Ogg support.
Hope this helps.
