Try resetting to defaults and then updating to the latest software then download your music after that.

Tips for a great answer:
It will probably take an hour or two to sync 20 gigs of music.
I am sure your 4,178 songs are somewhere around 20 gig.
It takes roughly 6 - 8 hours to put 80 gig on.
Imagine how long it took to put my 130 gigs on.
Word of advice, make sure you turn the settings to manually manage music.
You don't want to lose all your music cause you hook it up to another computer and it syncs with its itunes.
installing more computer ram might be an option
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.
first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system
you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible
also check the usb leads for secure dust free connections
if you scroll to the bottom toolbar while syncing your ipod select task manager application to see whats running if you see something running that should not be running select end now also in the applications see whats ticking over
you might have a virus
To disable automatic updating:
1. Connect iPod to your computer
2. Open iTunes.
3. Select iPod in the iTunes source list, you know in that left column where your playlists and ipod are located.
4. right click on your ipod and select the Options button.
5. Select "Manually manage songs and playlists."
No more long updating each time you connect your ipod.
(Although you might have to wait one more time to do this step but im sure you can do it intermittedly while its updating)
to re enable
1 - Select the iPod in iTunes.
2 - Tick Manually manage music and videos.
3 - Select the Music under Library at the top left of iTunes.
4 - Reselect the iPod and uncheck Manually manage music.
Also, uncheck Enable disk use.
Also remember in the Manange you own tracks mode you need to disconnect your ipod by clicking on the "eject ipod" icon in the bottom right or next to your ipod icon.
The ipod will continue to flash "do not disconnect" if you don't click the eject icon.
Not that my way is hard but there might be a quicker and easier way to load tracks in your ipod when its switched to the manange your own tracks mode.
If there is I would like to know
hope this helps
