Ipod Touch Sync Issue

Just bought a new Ipod Touch. When attempting to sync the Touch I get an error message " the disc can not be read from or written to". I have Updated I tunes, restored original settings, rest and re-started the PC and even exchanged the Touch for a new one. Same error message. My wifes Nano works fine, but the Touch does not sync. It starts the process and after about 100 songs, the error message appears

    I have the same problem and I've updated all of the software, all drivers on my PC, rebuilt an Itunes library on two different home PC's and tried from scratch to synch my 16 GB iPod Touch to each PC. I've also swapped the iPod for another. I've also looked hard at the USB ports on my PC's and I've bought an off board USB 2 self powered port expander to see if that has any effect ---It doesn't.

    As this is the first Apple device that I've purchased (actually for my wife) I'm pretty unimpressed - We've used Creative Lab Zen's in our family over the past 4 years and we've had no problems at all.

    Can someone advise as to where to look next to fix my problem ?

Error (0xE8000065) when i plug in my ipod

Users have been complaining on the Mac Support Forums about getting error 0xE8000065 when attempting to sync their iPhone on certain Windows 7 machines. It appears that a buggy intel chipset is to blame and it seems to only manifest itself with Windows 7. The particular chipset is the Intel P55 Express.
For now, there is no permanent fix. However, Microsoft appears to be working on the issue.

Have you tried restoring the iPod yet?
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.

White Apple iPod Video 30 GB

Your computer sees your iPod as another disc drive. When you sync check you have not got "enable for disc use" checked on the summary page. If it wont sync movies right click on it and select "convert selection for iPod", make sure you have selected the movie on the movie tab (or select "All Movies")
