Hello, I've got a bizare problem with my iPod touch - or, more specifically, I think, with iTunes. Couple of days ago, I did a normal sync and transfered some new podcasts from iTunes to iPod. The artwork for the podcasts became shuffled - like a piece of abstract art. When I tried to play the podcast it became randomised - continually jumping to different parts of the episode. So - I tried to restore the iPOD and, after several attempts - where I was getting error (6) messages, I was successful. However, after the restore - no joy - same problem. So, I unistalled and re-installed iTunes. Thought I'd solved the problem but no! Same issue. Then I plugged in my sons iPod and transfered some podcasts, much to his disgust, I inflicted the same issue on that - and I am unable to solve the problem by restoring here either. Tried a second de / re-installation of iTunes - this time being really thorough and deleting all related apple services and redundant registry entries. No joy! Can not retore either iPod from a second computer - iTunes does not recognise the devices. What on earth is going on here? I would have guessed that the HD on the first iPOD was dead but after iTunes appeared to destroy my sons iPod - i don't believe it. I have googled myself to death over the last 48 hours and I can't find anyone with the same problem - let alone a solution suggestion. In desperation therefore - anyone know what might be happening?
