I know I'm not the only person to have some sync time issues, but I haven't seen discussion on the other part of my dilemma. I could really use some input trying to solve this. I have a new 32gb iPod Touch 3g on iOS 4 (syncing to iTunes 9.2 on Windows 7, 64 bit) that is taking 30-40 minutes to sync AND iTunes insists there isn't enough room (even though after the sync the iPod will gladly fill up plenty more using iTunes Wi-Fi). I had this problem with my previous 2g as well. I'm wondering if anyone else is having this issue with the same symptoms: Sync settings: 1. Convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC (I know this slows the initial transcoding sync and when I add new songs, but this happens even if I'm just removing and not adding tracks). 2. I sync selected playlists only; non are random, no iMixes. 3a. Doing a full sync I'm left with about 800 mb free, and a sync takes 2-5 minutes; if I try to use this space during the sync I get a pop up there's isn't enough room, but I can still download up to 800 mb via iTunes Wi-Fi if I want. 3b. If I check the "automatically fill free space with songs" I'm left with about 400 mb free, but a sync then takes 30-40 minutes as it wants to re-transcode about 150 tracks. As with 3a, I can download up to 400 mb via iTunes Wi-Fi.
