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.
