iPod Syncing Problem.

Hey,

I wanted to sync my ipod today and something weird started happening. Ill explain in steps.

1) I connect my iPod , the "Syncing iPod" screen appears on the IPOD. Also , iTunes is optimizing photos , all works fine. Also , a folder pops up displaying all the folders on the ipod ( just like you're using an USB stick , im using Windows XP )
2) Then I go to the sync screen and select the albums I wanna sync.
3) I click sync , and the folder dissapeared and it looks like the ipod is ejected. iTunes freezes , it says syncing ipod but the round circle that spins doesnt appear. Also , on the IPOD itself its just charging , not syncing.
4) Then , iTunes gives me this error saying The Required disk cannot be found. The disk dissapeared just before I sync my iPod. It just dissapears from "My computer" in Windows.

I need to sync my iPod a bit , as I have a trip coming up. I do have some content on there but would like to get this fixed.
Also, I recently installed FlyakiteOSX ( changes system files to look like OS X ) can this be the problem?
Any ideas?

EDIT: ANother Question: I probably wont get this fixed by tommorow , so ill leave it for now. Enough content on there. Maybe a full iPod Restore will work? Anyway, my iPod can work fine if I just restore it right? Nothing is ever broken , just restore the firmware and its good. My iPod won't be a brick now , i think?
Thanks.

Yeah, I already looked there. When I come back from the trip , I will restore the iPod see how that works. I can't risk loosing my music now as im gone for some days.

But as long as the hardware works ok , nothing is broke , as software can just be reinstalled. Thats nice
