    My iPod touch won't sync after I updated iTunes 8.0.1. It just displays the error message below. But I can install new apps, add music, and then it will display that error.

    This problem is being discussed in the dedicated thread. Try unplugging and then plugging it back in. Some had to do it a few times.

    Can someone give me a link to the thread in question? Thanks.

    Oh, and by the way, it still syncs, it just gives you an error message when it's done.

    Just reboot your computer. That solves the problem for 99% of the people who encountered this problem thus far.

    How do u reboot a computer? If u mean restart then i did that a thousand times. IF u mean turn it off i did that a thousand times. But if rebooting is a completely different process then let me know.

    You must be a REAL noob to computers if you've never heard of rebooting. Yes, it's a restart. A warm boot is a restart and a cold boot is starting up the computer from a shut down state.

    There's really no difference. A reboot just saves you from having to shut the computer down especially if you are doing software installs and want to get right back to the desktop. When you reboot the computer it shuts down processes that are using up needed memory and kinda refreshes the computer. This is why a reboot is necessary as a problem solver when you are having issues.
    I don't know what method you used to remove iTunes but it might be better for you to use App Zapper or App Delete to get rid of all of the iTunes preferences. After that then you can reinstall iTunes from Apple's website.
    Here's a link to App Zapper. If you've already emptied the Trash then you will need to reinstall iTunes and then remove it again with App Zapper.
