    Hey all,

    I'm new in these parts. But that's because I JUST GOT a new ipod touch!

    As excited as I am, I also have been plagued with a few problems.

    When I try to sync the ipod. It maybe syncs for a few minutes or so, and then comes up with an error message saying "Cannot sync, device timed out". So I close itunes, and then I start it again. It syncs smoothly for a few minutes again, and then... the error message comes again...

    I've tried restarting the ipod and itunes, but nothing works...

    Do you guys know how to solve this problem?

    FYI - If your iPod takes FOREVER to sync.
    Delete the files from the following folder and reconnect your iPod.


    Don't delete your iPod's folder... delete the files that are inside it.

    It's a common issue, and has been linked to the usb host controller not supplying enough power, as far as I can tell..... and there still hasnt been a fix for it, other than buying a powered usb2.0 expansion card, like the belkin card.
