hard disk may have bad sectors.

Is it making clicking noises?

Scroll down to "IO" for new ipods

Follow the instructions and go to HDScan in diagnostics mode.
#3
yeah it does? full defrag???
#4
which Ipod you got?

i'll go through the steps with you.

the clicking noises usually means the hard disk is failing.
#5

#7
don't understand the instructions matey
#8
my ipod works fine i think its me pc thats knackered lots of programmes are not responding at the mo and the net is slow too (when it eventually responds)
#9
do a scan disk in windows because I just realised there's no diagnostic mode for the touch.
#10

#11

try it, I found these solutions on the apple support forums.

"iTunes was unable to load provider data from Sync Services...

To solve this issue:
1. Unplug iPhone
2. rename the SyncServices folder found at C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer to SyncServices_Old
3. reconnect iPhone

The SyncServices directory was recreated and the error went away"

OR

"1. Unplug every external Card Reader.
2. Unplug every Card Reader in your PC (they are plugged into motherboard)
3. Unplug every USB Hub.
4. Unplug every USB Drive or USB HDD.

5. Plug in Ipod Touch/iPhone.
6. Go to Device Manager.
7. Search for "USB Mass Storage Device" in Universal Serial Bus Controler.
8. Right click on it and UNINSTALL.

9. Search for "Scan for hardware changes", click on it and wait a bit.
10. Turn on iTunes and check if its working."

ignore my comments about scanning the itouch, the itouch doesn't have a hard disk so it won't work, just try the suggestion above.

done step 1
gets suck on step 1 of 4 backing up ipod and then error message pops up again
#17
which step tells you to back up your ipod?
#18
it varifies and step 1 back up ipod...
#19
have you tried the 2nd suggestion about un installing the driver and letting windows reinstall it?

only other thing i can think of is to reinstall itunes or restore the itouch but you will lose all the music on the itouch.
#20
hmmm just found this but its from aug 09 -
Okay, after a couple of hours research, this is the solution that seems to be working for me at the moment:

Open itunes (don't plug in the ipod). Go to preferences, devices(?) and turn off the automatically sync ipod option. In the advanced tab, reset sync history. I also turned off all features in all tabs asking to search for external devices (such as apple tv). Apply these changes.

Now plug in your ipod and wait for itunes to recognise it. Click on the ipod in the side menu and manually sync it (using the sync button). Itunes should now backup the ipod and sync without becoming "stuck". Then go back into preferences and turn the automatic sync option back on.

Hope this will be of use to anyone else with the same problem.

thanks 4 ya help matey but its a lost cause i think me pc is not workin :(

i'm going offline now but if you want more advice.

Try sync your itouch on another computer and see if its really your computer that's at fault.

or uninstall intunes (backup itunes library) and re install

or restore your itouch (lose all your music) by following the following steps:

1.Connect your itouchto computer, doesn't matter if iTunes recognise it.
2.Make sure your itouch is at home screen.
3.Hold down both the home button and power button at once and ignore all things that happens like that "Slide to Power Off" thing.
4.Even when the iTouch switches off, continue holding those two buttons.
5.When the Apple Logo appears, release the power button but keep on holding the home button.
6.After a while, the iTunes and USB thing should appear and iTunes should pop up and tell you to restore.
