Just completed second try.  still no prompt for name.  after iPod reboot,, iTunes opened up with Welcome to Your new iPod.  option with continue or cancel.  last time I clicked continue and disconnect iPod.  then install rockbox on Mac.  this time I am going to click cancel then try rockbox installation on Mac.  will post result soon.

I was able to install the main rockbox firmware but not the bootloader. When bootloader is checked, it failed with could not find device name.   When iPod is connected to Mac, it still shows Do not disconnect with red circle and cross bar.  waiting for your input.  thanks.

Fyi, I did installation experiments on Windows.  I was able to install both bootloader and Rockbox firmware.  Rockbox works when disconnect from computer.  But when connecting to computer, the screen show did show an image of usb connector, and nothing worked.  I will wait if you have any solution.  I restore iPod on Mac and sync music files to enjoy listening for time being.  Thanks for all your help.

How does "nothing worked" look like?
