I have an 80GB Classic. Ive been in Iraq for 7 months during which time my ipod had no problem plugging into my laptop, instantly syncing, and being ready for use/ejection. The minute I got home and logged onto the internet, Itunes updated to 8.0.2 on both my laptop and my iMac back home. Since then my Ipod will freeze mid-sync process. Its always a random song that it freezes on. Out of 5000+ songs, one time it made it all the way into the upper 4000s before it froze. Sometimes it freezes on song 12. It also wont allow me to drag and drop my music in when disabling auto-sync. The same problem occurs whereby it freezes on some random song. WTF?
