I have a new classic Ipod that I've had for only a year. No problems at all syncing my music in my library to this ipod. Until now. I tried syncing some new music to it recently and for some reason it crashed and deleted everything off my ipod. Now I'm trying to re-sync my entire library but everytime it starts syncing, it keeps giving me all of these error messages "Cannot Sync *title of song* To Ipod". It wouldn't be the same song either, it would be random songs. I have 5000 songs and it only syncs 200.
Everytime I re-plug my ipod to the computer (I have Windows 7), it tells me that I need to scan and fix it. I do that, it says it found problems and fixed them. I try to re-sync my ipod, and the same thing happens again. and I have to re-scan and fix it again. It also keeps giving me this error message "Ipod Cannot Be Synced. A Duplicate File Name Was Specified". I've restored my ipod three times and that doesn't help at all. I've also updated my Itunes to Itunes 10 and that just seems to make things worse.
I'm getting really really pissed because it seems like I'm going around in a circle and I have no idea whether or not any of my music files are corrupted, or if my ipod is damaged or if it's just an Itunes bug.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
