After you start the sync you have to fool itunes by plugging in another device, such as a flash drive, into another usb port on your computer.

The restore doesn't work, because of a bug. You have to reset it using a small program the Reset Utility.
Try this url:
If that url doesn't work, go to, click support and choose iPod and search for reset utility to look for the download link. And if that doesn't work let me know and I'll send the program to you by e-mail.
O, the reset will erase all your music/data on the iPod.

Itunes freezing when ipod is connected

Need to reformat your ipod - don't disconnect the ipod until you hit eject - ever you should be able to use it again try a different cord and reformat then have fun cause you get to reload all the music unless you were able to save your iTunes library

I am able to successfully sync this ipod, but when i connect it to my computer, itunes freezes momentarily

iTunes will freeze momentarily if you have not recently updated the software. If it continues to do that and you have the latest software you will need to uninstall iTunes and reinstall it on the computer. Make sure that you back up your music files on your computer first as a precaution so that you don't lose any of your songs.

IPod recognized by iTunes for about three seconds.

Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

Can't sync iPhone 3GS 3.1 with Vista iTunes 9.1

Zone Alarm and itunes do not play well together. ZA running will corrupt some pictures, apparently some music and does not allow the update of an ipod (touch) to occur. I have had to turn off ZA for any of the above to get either a clean install or adding (or removing) photos.

Do not disconnect... nothing worked

In iTunes, you should be able to change the iPod to sync manually. that way, you can personally drag and drop your files into the iPod. You'll still have the DO NOT DISCONNECT on the screen, but it will sync easier.
