This is my first post here and I rarely post in any forum until I get to the end of my tether. That end has now been reached. Since paying for, and upgrading to, the 2.0 software my hitherto reliable 32GB Touch crashes roughly every other day (it hangs on the black screen with Apple logo). The only way out of this is to carry out a force restore. My last such restore was yesterday and all was well today until syncing it for the last time tonight. My Touch shows up on iTunes with a MobileMe splash screen asking me if I want to become a member (I have been a member for almost 2 years and have 50 days left before I need to renew). The only two options are 'no thanks' or Yes please'. I hesitated before pressing 'No thanks' incase it did something to my profile so I selected the other. This simply opens up a page on Apple's site which explains how to configure my system (Macbook with latest Leopard). My system is set up correctly. So I cannot do anything in iTunes and the only option is yet another force restore which I am seriously thinking about building in to my nightime routine. Can anyone offer a crumb of comfort and suggest what is going on before I drag my iPod Video 5.5 grn out of retirement? Many thanks.
