    for me the ipod touch is the perfect device and i bought one almost instantly.
    for 2 weeks i have had syncing problems which has taken hours and hours to sort so on sunday i went to the apple store and a genius told me it was a 'sensor' fault and replaced with a new device.

    now the new device is starting to go haywire, deleteing art work and songs.

    my patience is growing very thin, anybody else?

    Yeah, I've had five iPod touch's, but only because three of them have been faulty (the only 'good' ones I've had were an 8GB replacement first gen, and a brand new 32GB 2nd gen which I bought last week after getting sick of the crap happening with my 16GB, and Apple's inability to give me a working unit).

    When you guys are plugging in your new iPods, are you restoring them from the previous backup or starting it as a new iPod? You should obviously not restore from a backup thats been having issues.

    Moreover, you should try restoring your current iPods, making sure everything is up to date and that you have some free space available on the device.

    not to be rude but dont you think the obvious restore, update, reinstall was my first course of action.

    i think the device is great but it come with what appears to be many issues and reliability problems

    Mine were hardware problems - dust under the screen, the screen moving around, light leaks, etc - that could not possible be fixed by software restores.

    Try again.

    If you want responses tailored to your issues, then be more specific about the symptoms in your first post.

    Yes that would be the obvious thing with most people, but for some reason it isn't with all people. Unfortunately we don't have the ability to read intelligence through a web browser, so people offer advice assuming the person hasn't exhausted all the obvious 'simple' fixes.

    I'm not even the OP, I was replying saying that I agree with them. Then crazyeddie goes and addresses both of us. As a reply to the OP I never intended to give the circumstances, it was another member pulling me into the issue.

    crazyeddie's advice is valid in many situations. Perhaps not yours, but how would he know that? Forgive him for thinking your post was an invitation for help, rather than a rant+1.
