    I have the same problem. And, everytime I connect my ipod touch, it starts to back up the files and it takes forever. Is there a way to make it not do back ups everytime I connect? but the apps not working, whats up with that, and its apps I purchased so it shouldn't give me problems. Whats going on?

    Ok, you mean uncheck them and sync, and then recheck them and sync?

    Hi,

    Found a workaround in the Apple Forums. In the iPod, remove one of the free applications by pressing the button until the icons start to wiggle, press the x on the icon for the application and confirm delete. Then go to the app store and reinstall the app. All apps start working again! It seems to me it might be some kind of DRM problem, as I was requested my AppleID to get the free application...
    Anyway, this sorts out the problem... until you resync with iTunes probably :-(
