    The time and date on my iPod are constantly wrong. I'll set them correctly, but then after a few hours they'll change randomly. What could be causing this, and how can I fix it?

    Check that your timezone settings are correct.
    On 2.1, it's Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Time Zone Support
    and Settings > General > Date & Time > Time Zone

    maybe ur computer has wrong time and date.

    set ur computer first to correct time, date, and time zone.

    after u set ur comp. plug ur ipod to the comp.

    the itunes will automatically change the time settings of ur ipod for good.

    changes will apply after u unplug ur ipod form comp.

    if not, reboot ur ipod and check again

    Not so. My computer has the right time. This is a well documented issue in the Windows version of iTunes experienced by many iPod Touch owners.

    1. Open iTunes and Sync iPod Touch
    2. Verify that iPod Touch has the correct time.
    3. Put computer to sleep while iTunes is running.
    4. Wake computer up.
    5. Sync iPod Touch.
    6. Time on iPod Touch will be wrong.
    7. Close iTunes.
    8. Open iTunes and sync iPod Touch.
    9. iPod Touch will now display the correct time.

    This is, quite clearly, a problem with iTunes for Windows that has been documented since the Touch was released, yet Apple continues to leave it unfixed. Either Apple doesn't care about the majority of iPod Touch owners, or they're actively sabotaging their Windows code in an effort to make Windows look bad.

    do we have to do that each day we leave the ipod in when the computer goes into hibernation? Because I do that every night before I go to bed, and if we do have to redo it each day, Im not going to, rofl
