    Ok so I updated to Windows 7 from XP this afternoon. When I used to sync my iPod on XP, it used to sync really quick with no problems. Now that I have installed Windows 7, its extremely slow. Iv searched around and cant find a solution that works. Iv got the latest version of iTunes also. Please help!

    As far as my knowledge goes you've probably got stuff left over from xp or vista. You're best doing what a lot of people do when they upgrade. Backup all their important files (not a system backup) then wipe and reinstall the os.

    Dunno, but maybe your PC hasn't the same free memory and cpu than it had before on XP. And that would be why it is slow syncin.

    Dont think its that as I have run Vista before and it Synced fine on that and Vista demands more system resources than 7
