Dear forum, I looked everywhere for a solution to a problem that has been bothering me for some time. Whenever I plug my iPod into iTunes for syncing/charging, the sync process takes a _very_ long time (even when my library did not change), and actually ~1500 songs are removed from the iPod and then put back. After some digging I noticed a funny fact: these songs are always the same; all of them have the word "The" as the first word of either their title, artist name or album name. In many cases iTunes will re-sync all the songs of a given album whose title begins with "the", and none of the others ... Am I the only one in this case ? Did I do something wrong ? Why is the entire world against me ? [OK, cancel the last one ...] Thanks for your help !
