    I assume it stands for Yvonnes ipod which is what I've called it..? All I am doing is connecting my ipod and letting it sync.

What is Yvonnes IP? Are you reading or writing to the disk at the same time while your syncing ITunes?

Ipod 120 classic backs up only 231 songs


Sometimes it is easiest to start over. In the case of the popular iPod, clearing the hard drive is the easiest way to remove the files and restore the drive. The process is rather basic using the Apple iTunes software. Once your 120 GB iPod is restored, you can quickly sync all of your songs saved on your computer back onto the iPod. Properly complete the restoration process and enjoy your revitalized iPod.
Open the iTunes application on your computer. If you do not yet have the iTunes application, you can download it from Apple's website for free. From there you can easily download and install it. Open the folders on your computer which contain your saved music files and drag and drop them into iTunes. If prompted to convert to M4a, select "Convert." Connect your 120GB iPod to the computer using the provided USB cable. Click the "Restore" button on the main screen in iTunes, then click "Restore" a second time once prompted to initiate the restore process. Click the "Next" option, then "OK" once the restoration is complete. Your music will no longer be on your iPod, but will remain in your iTunes library. Click the "Sync" button on the bottom left side of the iTunes screen to sync the music library with the iPod.

IPod nano 4G that iTunes no likey


reformat your ipod, if you installed itunes via disc or from file, you should have the option in itunes to restore your ipod to factory settings. If you have songs on your ipod that arnt on your computer, you will need to copy them off the ipod before you restore your ipod.
To copy music off an ipod that is YOURS (in XP) go to my computer>click on your ipod> then go to tools>folder options>View TAB>and click on the option "show hidden files and folders". Then there should be a folder somwhere in your ipod (depending on what ipod you have) that says music. Copy that folder to the desktop and filter through all of the folders inside it for your music.

IPod won't finish syncing


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,
Ken
