    I have tried to sync the ipod on two different platforms... my macbook with os10 and also my windows 7 laptop and had the same prob.. so i don't think it would be malware...

    OK. So it's your iPod, not your computer, that is the problem.

    First, update Itunes to the latest version.

    If still a problem, make sure you are using a USB 2.0 port, and the newer USB 2.0 iPod cable.

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

Ipod Classic 80GB won't sync

i took my ipod to the apple store, they ran diagnostics, and it passed everything. i thaught it was a spot on the hard drive, becsue in the process in syncing it stopped at the same number each time (i.e 81 of 334) and freeze. i recently downloaded a song from a website, when i put it on my ipod when it still worked, it would freexze my ipod each time i tried to play it. it was just that one song. then i synced again, things were fine with it for a whle until i sunced it a month later. Apple told me there was a bad song pon there and i instanty knew it was that one and i deleted it. ever since, my ipod is fine.
to find the bad songs, Apple told me to make playlists of my library, in like quarters, sync one at a time if for example the 3rd playlist has problems going on, the song is on there. and just narrow it down. i deleted each song that froze in syncing like 81 of 334.. i would delete #81. (it gives the title you know that) i ended up just having to delete 1 podcast episode and one song, and things are fine.
if you have this problem, plug your ipod up to itunes, on itunes go under the menu , under help> diagnostics. (second to last one) and run it on connection, or anyting you want.. to make sure it isn't on the connection. if not, you have a bad song. also KEEP YOUR SOFTWARE UP TO DATE!!@
