If you're computer's clock is wrong then it's not your iPod's fault. You need to fix the clock in your computer so when you sync your iPod it will sync with the correct time.

What he said. ^

Fix your computer clock and try syncing again.

He mentioned his computer clock is correct.

I would check the settings in your iPod and make sure you have the right time-zone set. I'm certain you can have it set on a different time zone than your computer.

How far off is the iPod's time compared to that of your computer (or the Atomic clock)?

Thanks for the responses guys. The clock on the ipod would have a random time showing after syncing with itunes. Never the same time twice. I did notice that the clock on my computer was one hour off two weeks ago. I have no idea why it changed, I changed it back and reset it to the atomic clock. It did it again a couple of days ago. So I reset it with the atomic clock and it still showed the wrong time. I had to manually set it to the correct time. My neighbors clock on her computer was also off by one hour last week and I reset hers. We use cox cable and are on the same loop. So maybe cox cable was screwed up. So I do not know what is up with that. Anyway the ipod worked fine but the clock was annoying me so I restored the ipod and made sure the time zone was correct and now it is showing the correct time.
