IPod won't finish syncing

I brought in my iPod 80 to be repaired and the Geek Squad did a "rapid exchange" and I got the new one in the mail. When I go to sync the iPod in iTunes it starts of alright and syncs about 600 or so of the 5000+ songs I have in iTunes. Then it throws up "Attempting to copy to the disk failed. An unknown error occured (-69)." If I try to sync again I get a few songs and then "The required disk cannot be found." Did they just send me another broken iPod or can this be fixed?

Hello Spaceboy,

It sounds like the replacement iPod which you received may be damaged. I would recommend that you take the unit you received back into the Geek Squad® counter at your local Best Buy™ store with all your paperwork (receipt, service plan, and a copy of the service order for the previous rapid exchange) and let them know. If the unit is defective, they should be able to arrange another rapid exchange for you. Sorry to hear about the difficulties!

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."

It could be the main board, especially if it's not staying on while you have it plugged in. Do you have the most updated software?
Sending it in to Apple can be costly, check out for iPod Touch repair.

Rapid exchange?

You also have an option to do "rapid exchange service" in which their service center will send you a refurbished IPOD in about 3-4 days for you to pick up in the store. It will be the model that you purchased, unless they didn't have it, then they will give you the upgraded version of that particular model.

Returning Ipod


The service plan that you purchased allows you to get your iPod repaired if it has a hardware failure during the lifetime of the service plan. You can take the unit into your local Best Buy store to get service.

You may also qualify for our rapid exchange program. If your local Best Buy store determines that the item is defective they can have a refurbished iPod drop-shipped to you as an exchange. You can ask the store for more details.

Hello Sofi507,

Unfortunately Geek Squad® technicians are not able to do iPod battery replacements in-store. You should take the iPod to an Apple Store for service or follow the procedure on the Apple Care Service Website:

If warranty, no body better then Apple. I've heard of good and bad stories from Geek Squad, so I guess it depends what you need.
