Just got my iPod Touch 3G. Am having problems syncing it. It's not an issue with iTunes, my iPod Classic (5G) syncs perfectly and when I had a Touch (1G) (it was stolen, am still heartbroken about it) I had no problem. But with this new one, it crashes iTunes and when I try to sync it I get a message that it doesn't have the right software or something like that. I can drag and drop music and videos into it but that took forever. I can't get any of my contacts, calendar, or photos into the touch. I also can't get the "scrubber" (?) bar when I play music. I seem to remember you have to do something to get this bar when I had my 1G but I can't figure out how to get it. Finally, when I turn it on, instead of the day and date in English, it occasionally pops up in German. This isn't a big deal - it seems to be back to English now - but I'm a little puzzled. Thanks for any advice. Edit: I am working on a MacBook (OS 10.4.11), iTunes 9.0. My iTunes library is on an external drive so I can't unplug it. Haven't tried to unplug my laptop cooler but will try that next.
