View Full Version : Is my iPod touch broken?

Every so often, when I plug in my iPod touch, iTunes "updates" six or so songs, copying them or doing something (who knows).

It doesn't do this every time I plug in the iPod - probably every other time.

Please note that I have one playlist synched featuring only the songs I want.

Any idea what gives?

Peace.

Do you slide the bar across the bottom of the touch screen when you plug it in? That cancels the sync. I did that the first time I got my iPod too. It says "Slide to cancel" right on it. You'd think I would have read that :rolleyes:

I don't slide the bar, but now I realize that it may have something to do with automatically synching. Still not sure why though.

Anyway, I didn't realize you could manually manage your music, lol. I was so used to the Apple TV way of doing things that I didn't know you could physically drag and drop individual songs if you wanted to.

So much better.

I get this too!

Thing is, I think it's something to do with the songs because it started doing it on my 5G iPod (I'm 99% sure).

Anyway, as soon as I plug in my touch, it says "syncing songs to iScott touch..." and I can see the same 4 or 5 songs sync to the iPod every time.

It's really weird because those songs are already on my iPod and I made no changes to the songs themselves (tags or art or anything) so there's really no reason for it to be re-syncing only these songs each and every time.

Thing is, the songs play just fine on the iPod & in iTunes, so I don't know what the problem is with them. I've been meaning to jot down the songs that keep doing this and re-encode them and see if that makes it stop.

Prior to opting to manage my music manually, I ended up deleted those 6 songs to see if it would stop. The iPod just grabbed another 5 or 6 songs to semi-constantly update.

Weird. Thanks though, I won't bother easting my time to reencode.

I mentioned this to a friend and he said "Oh yeah, I've had that happen", so maybe it's no big deal.

Dude, your iPod is totally broken.

Take it back, get your money back, and get a really cool pink Zune.

I wonder if it's updating play counts or something. Still doesn't make sense it'd only do five or six though. Weird, I've never had a problem like that with my iPods, though I don't have a touch.
