Hello, My iPod classic has been a pain ever since I hooked it to my laptop. At first I had it hooked to the iTunes to my desktop computer and it worked PERFECT.. Then I got a laptop and ever since then it won't play all of my songs or it will play part of a song and I've tried downloading a new iTunes and reloading all my music and it doesn't work. Now it won't even connect to iTunes any more it just says "The iPod ".....'s iPod" cannot be synced. The required file cannot be found" and it does this ALLLL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL. omg. I have the same exact problem
ive been struggling for 2 hours.
simply shut the device off. then turn it on and sync.
it is so funny how simple the solution is.
i've been an idiot trying to restore it, uninstall then reinstall, trying to downgrade it... all the downloading times.
I dont know if this will be too late for you. I had same problem but I was able to fix it. If your ipod freezes itune anytime it tries to sync, just chill, dont disconnect, just remove the usb cable and then its gonna bring a pop up message saying itunes could not read content of ipod and it'll then ask if you want to restore. Before you click on restore button, plug back the ipod's usb and then make sure it is visible on my computer (Properly connected) then you can click restore and follow the instructions. itunes is going to download a software from itunes and then ur ipod is gonna be restored to factory settings.
If iTunes wont work, click start then Window Media Player, if you dont have Window then you cant do this. when the page opens up, on the top of the page it says sync, click it then plug in your ipod, on the right hand side it says inside a box drag songs, search the songs you want and drag them into the box. If you have as many songs as you want, click sync [which is inside the box] and a message with a bar should appear, your ipod should be downloading the songs, it could take a long time for the tab to fill up so do something you like doing and leave the laptop where it is. After a while the message will disappear, unplug your ipod and do what ever you want.
If that doesn't work go to:
I've been having the same problem TOO! Jobs maybe be trying to make us buy the touch. Being little bit pacient I restart my 2nd generation nano couple of times, with it connected. It works all the times. I've just did it three times 1 minute ago and it's synced now. I just hope it's some kind of itunes error, because the latest touch is awful with that lidded hole!
