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

My ipod 120GB can only load 20% of my 1000songs befor freezing I did all that iTunes Trouble shooter said but to no avail. is their a way to fix this without sending it in or should i **** can my po

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

My iPod Touch has been freezing randomly!

To refresh your iPod, hold your Sleep/Wake Button and your Home Button at the same time for 10 seconds. It will close and opens up again with the Apple Logo. Wait for few seconds and your problem should work..

If not, restore your iPod to Factory Settings.

Sad face on 80 gig cant restart

You can try going into iPod Diagnostics
Just click and hold on the Home and Center button at the same time until the screen turns black, then click and hold on the Center button and the Rewind button (Left button) until something different than a iPod display comes out.

Hope this helps!

Gigabeat frozen!

Hi Lorna, Yeah I found my Gigabeat froze a few different times when I was getting used to it. Solution: at the bottom of player there is a little battery on/off switch - its tiny and black but you would have needed to switch it on to first use it. Well turn it off here for 10 seconds and the on again. This removes all power from the hard drive and circuits which occassionally freeze. Hope that helps
