Scanned exe with Nod32 antivirus, came up clean. Ran iPod Detector with my iPod 4th Gen (20gb, grayscale display), program detected it fine. Also, the program did detect the iPod while it wasn't in disk mode. It was in that mode that's like disk mode, but you plug in the iPod while it's in the standard music browser thingy...
Please note, my iPod is running Rockbox firmware, but I tested the program using the standard iPod firmware which Rockbox allows you to boot into also.
Hope that helps with your program some. Oh, btw, I'm using USB 2.0 to connect my iPod to my computer. Dunno if that helps you any.
