    So i get up and go to snyc my ipod touch to add some new movies for my trip that im going on in a few hours. And its like yada yada if you add these its going to erase all previous synced items and add your library to your ipod touch. So i was like okay. After it synced i had like 1.2 gigs in other when i usually had like 200 mbs there. So I got pissed off and tried to erase it and i couldn't find a way so i when to reset and erase content. An hour later the bar finishes and It goes to the apple logo and the little spinning circle comes up and stops spinning after a few seconds then stays frozen for 20 seconds and the flashes black and restarts the process, is this normal? I have to leave in an hour or so and im trying to get this sorted out HELP.

    You have to manually enter recovery mode. Turn the ipod off, then while the ipod is disconnected from computer hold down home button, while holding down home button connect to computer with usb, keep holding home till enters recovery mode. Restore then resync. If i was you i would put it on manually sync music/videos so you wont have that problem again.

    Yeah I would actually do this. Unless you ran out of time. But you see the problem with Windows and iTunes is that it just sucks. It happens to me as well so don't worry. You can fix it.
