Everytime I sync my ipod touch with my computer it lasts about 1 minute then I get a message saying "The ipod can not be synced. The device timed out." It only syncs about 5 songs and I have to disconnect the ipod and do it again, its really annoying. I've tried all 4 of the usb ports on my laptop but it still happens. Anybody know how I can fix it? Restoring it doesn't help.
Also I'm using version 1.1.5 but it says I can upgrade to software version 2.2.1, when I try to do this it says that I need to purchase it. (I've got the old style ipod touch) So does this mean I have to pay to update itunes? My dads itunes gets updated quite often and he never gets asked to purchase it.
