my ipod touch battery is screwed up so when it is syncing, the ipod turns itself off and restarts itself after syncing every now and then. to my surprise, i was listening to a song and it said "error, cannot sync b/c ipod turned off" or something like that. I was syncing 2400 songs to my ipod(i factory restarted it) and the ipod reset at the exact same song i was listening to. Usually, ipod resets after 400 songs of syncing. My question is, when syncing, how random is the order it is synced in? I know it is not alphabetically nor is it number of plays (when syncing whole library into ipod). Was it so because the computer probably found it easier to sync a song which was already in RAM(ie i was playing it) so it tried to sync it? BTW, the song i was listening to didnt get synced until like after 1500 songs. So that to me suggests that it is pure chance, 1:2400 or there is some other logic behind it. Can you please explain? I know it seems pointless but i am very superstitious.
