Problems loading songs on my Ipod Touch.

I have a Ipod Touch 3g, 32gb. I recently upgraded to IOS 5.1 and deleted everything (wanted to organize the music, etc.) Now, when I'm uploading music, usually in groups of 40-60 songs, after a few groups of songs, there's a weird bug. I'll upload 23 songs and the status bar will say loading 28 songs, the last few load really quickly, flashing names of tracks that I've uploaded previously. The amount of songs that flash by increases as I add more songs increases. I unplug the ipod and plug it back in an itunes syncs up that backlog of songs that still need to sync flashes by the quickly. The songs that try to sync aren't on the ipod but do exist on my computer's hd.

I don't really know what the problem is or what to do, but I'd like to be able to add large groups of songs willy nilly to the ipod w/o worry. Thanks!

Best answer: I wonder if your iOS install was interrupted slightly and now the OS is all funky. Would it be a big hassle to reformat the iPod again and start over?

Response by poster: No, not at all. I restored it from an earlier backup, but that wouldn't fix the issue, just restoring the iOS install that might have been messed up. I'll do that now!

Response by poster: Well, that may have worked tBoaF! I wiped it and reinstalled iOS, and now I'm only adding songs an album at a time. It's taking a while but its fun. I also picked a more awesome name for the ipod.
