    Hi all.
    I have an issue where by when I connect my iPod to iTunes and it starts to sync, after a couple of minutes it freezes my whole computer. Not able to Ctril, Alt, Del. I have to manually restart the computer.
    Just a bit of background though. Yesterday I was upgrading my computer and connected my iPod to my laptop, which wiped all my songs, movies etc. Also I have installed a fresh copy of XP and updated to service pack 3. Would any of this contribute to this problem or is it more likely to be software problems with iTunes?

    many thanks

    I have 4GB RAM, and brand new AMD 6000 Dualcore processor. Processes are at 38 which is not very many. I was thinking it could be hardware related, but it doesn't seem to crash at any other time, just when itunes is open. I have also uninstallated and reinstalled all itunes/apple related software.
    STILL NO LUCK

    umm...

    Your computer is definately powerful enough. I would suggest maybe getting an older version(or maybe update) of itunes and see if that works.
