    I had been getting an error message 48 unable to sync and it was driving me up the wall :mad::mad:

    You can cure this bug by doing the following:

    iTunes 7.6.1 / Firmware 1.2.3 / 5th Gen Video iPod

    BACK UP YOUR ITUNES!!!!

    Set your mac clock to SPT (Southern Pacific Time) then Press restore your iPod in iTunes. This will format the iPod. Reload all of your music in to iTunes and then reload your music back on to your iPod, et vola

    You can now change your clock on your mac back to GMT

    It worked perfectly for me. :D:D

    Whilst the restore worked for me, next time i added some tunes the Sync error (-48) came back again.
    Was thinking of reverting back to iTunes 7.5
    Anyone have any joy doing this

    Error 48 iTunes

    Since I have reset my ipod as I mentioned above it has been working seamlessly. In fact I think the whole thing works a lot smoother and accessing music on my iPod is faster. :D:D

    When I did my reset, I had to do it several times before the fix actually worked. :mad::mad::mad:

    One other idea enable disc use on your ipod and check the directory structure to make sure you don't have any hard drive errors :D

    Must have reset at least 6 times so far, am now only syncing podcasts to speed up the process until fixed.

    Will try disc structure at the weekend and report further, thanks

    Can't believe how long this issue has been around and still no fix. My Pod was fine until I re-formatted to Mac :confused:

    Put into Disk Mode & ran through Disk Utility as suggested. Found a fixed a few errors and once I'd restored my iPod one last time it's been ok - so far.

    Have successfully sync'd today for the first time with new material and no errors occurred. Keeping fingers very tightly crossed

    : Thanks for the suggestion :)

    That is good news. Since fixing the bug at my end, touch wood every thing is running as sweet as.

    So after a few days the message came back. Have found that I can sync new podcasts with no problem so am only doing that manually for now

    I see Firmware version 1.3 is out, I 'll leave it a week or two and try that if no major issues are reported
