    I have a Itouch 2nd gen 16G When I try to download in Itunes I get a message that says Ipod cannot not be synced. The disk could not be read from or written to. I can download into my touch thru the wifi but can't do anything in Itunes. I have Itunes and my ipod software is up to date. I'm working with windows XP. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think we need more you saying you can't sync anything (music, apps, contacts) from your iTunes on your PC?

    Have you ever been able to sync your iPod before?

    Have you tried doing a restore? I suggest putting it into DFU mode first.

    do you rly want to know?
    i suggest either restarting computer or erase and restore on ur touch cuz the hard drive could be corrupt.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back but hughesnet FAP-ed me tring to download the restore software. Bottom line file was over my limit so I couldn't get it downloaded. I did try another sync of the Itouch and everything worked this time. I don't know what made it start but it did.
    Thanks for all the help

    to sync with desk top AND netbook

    (I have looked for where to ask a new question, but couldn't find it so am asking it here in a 'reply.')

    How do I sync my iPodTouch with my desktop while at home and then switch to syncing with my netbook while on the road?

    It is not possible with standard iTunes syncing.

    You cannot. You have one PC that you sync your iPod Touch to. I believe you hook them up in manual mode and load the music, but you do not have the luxery to sync to both. I made my laptop my sync'ing PC because I travel with it; however, you are limited by this if your work computer is not mobile. I do have iTunes installed on various PC's, so they can be used but not synced
