I'm using NetBSD 2.0BETA. August 20th sources. I'm not getting the no buffer memory problem message just :
umass0: Apple iPod mini, rev 2.00/0.01, addr 2 
umass0: using SCSI over Bulk-Only

And nothing else after that. Booting with the iPod plugged doesn't give me anything else. Other pluggable storgage devices work fine, as the memory of my photo camera and an external Cypress USB2.0 HD.

Thanks and regards
