hi everyone i've been reading these forums for a while now & have picked up some useful hints & tips..... now i need your help.... my 1st gen 8gb ipod touch which is over 1 year old is playing hide & seek while connected to the pc, this started about 3 weeks ago. it would show in i-tunes, it would sync then after about 5 minutes it would vanish then reappear, then go through all this again freezing i-tunes in the process.i tried other usb ports changed the connector this culminated in all the music on it vanishing. left me no option than to restore....thought this had sorted the problem. alas no it worked fine for a week now i've a feeling of deja vu. any suggestions...is it i-tunes or the ipod?
