Well, have had many problems over the last few days, songs not playing, so uninstalled and reinstalled itunes. Tried to restore ipod, but it would not do it and got stuck in connect to itunes screen. Sorted that out eventually, and ipod started to sync. It reinstalled my apps back onto the ipod, and start doing the songs. After 100+ songs itunes froze. Powered down computer, started up and started sync on itunes again. Same thing, loaded some songs and froze.
