IPod 160g shows error message when trying to synch
I have an older laptop, a 4-year-old HP pavilion ze4600, and a new 160g iPod. About four months ago I moved my iTunes library onto a 160g external HP media drive. The iPod's been synching and working fine for five months until recently, and started having trouble synching about the same time I downloaded album artwork for my whole iTunes library. I'm starting to suspect these old USB 1.0 ports. Do you think that's the reason my iPod won't synch? Is the addition of videos and album artwork too much information to be squeezed through 2 USB 1.0 ports?

try to log out of itunes, and set up your own account, log in each time you connect your ipod, your ipod has it's own serial number, and your computer tries to open up ipod 1 even when ipod 2 is being used.
Try it on another computer and if it happens its the ipod.
Or try restalling itunes with the lates version (7.7.1)
If that doesnt work try using a different program for your ipod eg Jriver media center
How To Fix The "Cannot Be Synced" -42 Error For 2nd Generation Nano?
Follow these simple steps (cannot be easier):
1.Plug in the ipod 2.Go to My Computer 3.Right Click the Ipod (F:) 4.Go to Properties 5.Click the "Tools" Tab 6.Click "Check Now" under Error Checking 7.After it's finished start itunes 8.Update Ipod once it shows up on itunes 9.It Works!
I know another way you could try formatting which may fix this problem. Restoreing just restores all the setting to your iPod yes it shoudl format as well but it may not due to an error or something.
To do try it another way follow these steps, first click on "Start" - "My Computer" look for you iPod when it's connect usually called "Removable Disk" once you've found it "Right-click" on it then click on "Format", once format is complete disconnect, then connect it again then run "Update" for your iPod and for iTunes, once you've done that have another attempt.
Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems leave a comment and i will get back to you.
