try this... iPod Upgrade information is preventing you from connecting to iTunes quickly and syncing your iPod. To correct this please open your iTunes application and click on the iTunes pull down menu. From this menu choose 'Preferences' then click on the 'General Tab'. In this page please remove the check mark from in front of 'check for updates automatically.' This should correct the issue for you. or u can also try clicking on the cross '+' when it starts to access itunes store, it'll start to load it again, just keep pressing the cross, it might take 4 or 5 clicks, then your ipod sync window should come up. this should stop the update from showing up but itunes will still access the itunes store but itll freeze during that time, just click the "x" button and itll take u to ur ipod touch summary.
