Hello everyone,

I hope someone on here can help me. I am fairly handy with electronics and I am experienced with Apple products, but this one has me bewildered and upset.

Yesterday, I purchased a new iPod Touch 4G (64GB). I spent an entire day putting my music on it, when out of the blue, it stopped transferring. It would tell me the items were transferring (but did it way to quick...like 1/2 a second for an album). Then when I look on my iPod (under iTunes) the items are listed, but are dim. (It sort of looks like when they are waiting to be transferred). Also, it has the wheel that usually spins and moves up and down as the dim tracks turn solid as they are added. However, they simply do not ever transfer. Also, everything was working great and then 1/2 of my album artwork disappears from my iPod touch, which was there before!!! I did a full restore (even though its 1 day old).

Please...can someone tell me what is going on or what I need to do? I am really aggravated that I lost a whole days worth of work.

Thank you so very much!

Could be an iTunes issue. Backup your library and music and reinstall iTunes.

I would do a restore first, and if that doesn't correct the problem then I would take it back and exchange it since you just bought it yesterday.

Lets do a read along, shall we? Pay close attention to the text in bold:
