for some reason, all of a sudden my ipod is "faking" syncs. i hit sync and it shows the whole "optimizing photos for ipod, syncing music, etc" thing and my ipod say sync in progress, but nothing I sync actually appears in my ipod. I'm not really sure the problem, so I'm not sude where to start here. EDIT: never mind, it appears itunes forgot about my ipod, but after changing a setting on it forom itunes it asked if I wanted to sync with this computer. I hit yes and it works now.
