Before my Ipod use to copy at lightening speeds. . . now after a loath of errors and constant restoring, it takes forever to copy one song, and almost impossible to copy more then 10. . . without it freezing, or taking forever. I restored my iPod Classic, and have 4,500 songs to put on it. . . and I can't do that with a slow iPod. Mind you, it works better in my slower PC Dell Laptop, then in my mac, as of recent. PS: This all started to happened once I updated itunes to 7.7, and my "ipod software" to 1.1.2.
