    Hello, I'm sure this question gets brought up alot but none of the solutions i've seen have helped me out as far as I know.

    Recently, I believe its when I upgraded from windows XP to 7, iTunes would give me this error. The first time I was stupid and restored my iPod, losing about 300 songs.

    Well I've built up to about 75 and it happened again, although I can restore the songs.

    And it happened again, and again, and on the 5th time I was smart enough to back up my iPod.

    I dont know whats causing this. Sometimes plugging in my iPod works fine, like if I eject and plug it right back in, its fine, but it just happened the first time today, about 8 or so hours later than when I last plugged it in.

    I cant imagine the iPod is dying, because it still plays fine, and I can recover m songs.

    I changed the disk drive location from I to M and I'll have to see if that works, but I'm not sure what else I can do.

    I'm not paying 30 bucks just to call an apple technician.

    Thanks in advance.
