I have a 120gb Classic iPod these days, and it was synced (happily) to my desktop for about a solid year now. Anyway, back in August my desktop got a nasty virus and I had to delete a bunch of files. Amongst these files, one was a small iTunes data file, but I have no idea what it was.

Anyway, after this I stopped syncing my iPod. I just didn't feel like doing it -- I had like 70gb of music on it and that was good enough. But recently my collection has expanded by several GBs and I wanted to throw my new tunes on my iPod, so I went to sync it. And surprise surprise, it couldn't sync... or rather it stops syncing once the amount of music on it gets between 3 and 4gbs. So I restored it, and then tried syncing it since I had recently cleaned up my library anyway. This still didn't work, and it gave me several error messages (error -68, -69, -48, 10130 are a few) as well as telling me that the "disk cannot be read from or written to."

So I gave Apple a call yesterday, asking what I should do and why my iPod won't sync past 3gb of music data (and music is the ONLY thing I put on my iPod). The guy said to reset the iPod, so I did that and the same symptoms still occurred. He then told me to boot the iPod up in disc mode, and try syncing it that way. Still stopped around 3gb.

The Apple rep told me that the -68 error (only one we discussed) meant that one of my songs was corrupted... riiiiight. At any rate, my iPod was stopping around "Be", so I unchecked all my Beastie Boys songs, and all my Beatles songs. I tried restoring and syncing my iPod and still nothing. Unless my ENTIRE library is infested with corrupted files, then it must be my iPod, right?

So today I threw 4gb worth of my CDs and my friend's music (basically music that wasn't on my desktop) onto my laptop and I erased and tried syncing my iPod to my laptop, which I have never done before... and I got the same errors, although error -48 seems to come up a lot more.


So what the hell?

Anyone else experience this? What else should I do? I'm restoring my iPod, and I'm going to try and sync it to my laptop again... I can't believe this is happening. My iPod is essential to me. Any ideas?

And all software is up to date, and both systems.

Software is all up to date like I said. This happened first with iTunes 8. Then I tried updating to 9, same thing happened. The desktop is XP and the laptop is 64bit Vista for what it's worth.

Huh?

And yeah, I have deleted and reinstalled iTunes. I also just restored my desktop and am syncing my old Nano to my laptop to see if I can narrow the problems down. Hopefully something works. I can deal with using my Nano but if my Classic is messed up Apple better fix it if I can't.

Just synced my Nano to my laptop and it worked great... about to try it on the desktop after I reinstall iTunes. I suppose this means it's my iPod Classic at fault then. Any ideas?

This is one of the old hard drive iPods. The hard drive is toast. The read/write arm is unable to move across the entire surface of the disk, and because of this it is only able to access the data at the very beginning of the disk. It is a very common failure, and in PC hard drives frequently generates what's known as the "click of death" or the "beep of death". Basically, time to get a new iPod.

To see what I mean, please check this video:

AHA should have payed attention to my post like 5 weeks ago!
anyways same thing happens to me all day long. when the error comes up, remove the USB from your computer and put it into a different port. repeat for another 10 songs or so then switch back.

worked for me at least.
now my Ipod isnt recognized by my computer. so.... I cannot sync or edit any info on my Man-pod.

I was waiting for you to own this thread Warden. I knew you would know what was up, and what you described is what my friend came up with late last night... and it's also what Apple told me is probably the case over the phone. My iPod hasn't made any strange beeps but before it "crashed" it did seem a lot "louder," almost like I could hear it loading the song or rather reading the data.

The good news is Apple said that even though my iPod is out of warranty, my repair/replacement will be free. I might not even have to pay shipping. Cool stuff. The 120gb is also discontinued... so the guy said that if they're out of stock, I'll get a 160gb. Beast! Although I will miss Bitcha-tron 7000 :)
