SOURCE: error 69 on 30gB ipod video

Unfortunately whoever first started telling people that their files are bad and they need to delete it from the iPod is just wrong. Here's how you REALLY fix it: Restore your ipod, making sure to place it in disk mode. Wait for the ipod to sync, and when it starts freezing on a song, rapidly tap or hold play/pause until it starts syncing again. Your iPod isn't timed correctly with the computer and that's that's the reason for the error. pressing play will kick the iPod in the *** and make it line up with the process on your PC. You're all welcome in advance.

A error code keeps coming up -69 no music is syncing


As per http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1210 This error occurs when iTunes tries to send files to your iPod, but a file (or files) is unusable (something is wrong with it).
So basically it's because of a corrupted file.

160G problem


When you try to sync files to any iPod in iTunes on a Mac or Windows computer, you might see the following -69 error message:
"Attempting to copy to the disk failed. An unknown error occurred (-69)"This error occurs when iTunes tries to send files to your iPod, but a file (or files) is unusable (something is wrong with it).


To figure out which file (or files) is causing the error, update to the latest version of iTunes and then do this:
  1. Control-click (Mac) or right-click (Windows) on your iPod icon in the iTunes Source pane, then choose Sync Songs from the shortcut menu.
  2. Watch the display at the top of the iTunes window while your iPod is being updated. The name of the problematic file should appear in the display right before the error appears.Then remove the bad file from the list of songs to be synced to your iPod:
  3. Select the iPod in the iTunes Source pane.
  4. Click the Settings tab.
  5. Select the "Only sync checked items" checkbox (please note that this checkbox is only available for an iPod configured to update automatically).
  6. Select the appropriate item under Library in the sidebar and find the bad file in the list. (For example, if the file in question was a song you would select Music in the iTunes Source pane. If it were a video you would select Movies or TV Shows in the sidebar.)
  7. Deselect the checkbox next to the file name.
  8. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to update your iPod. If you have multiple problematic files in your iTunes library, you may need to repeat the other steps to remove them too.
To prevent future issues, you should delete the unusable files from your iTunes library, then restore them from a backup or reimport them from a CD.


If you're not able to isolate to any single file or if another iPod works with the same songs, then disconnect any other devices connected to USB or FireWire and try again. If the issue continues, then then try resetting your iPod. If the issue continues, then restore your iPod.

60 gb ipod photo sync issues! =(


I don't believe its a File Problem, My lads Ipod has the same error -69 and will not sync, However it will also not sync on my Itunes which syncs fine with my 30gb IPOD and my Ipod also syncs fine on his computer.

So can't see where the file problem could be...

I know this doesn't help but there seems to be so many people looking in the wrong place (In my opinion)
