I know there's been a few topics about this already but none have really come up with an answer so I thought I'd try my luck. Recently, my Ipod Touch 3G w/ 3.1.3 firmware has been taking FOREVER to sync. I'm not talking about an hour for a few hundred files here, I'm talking it's been 45 minutes and it's up to the 3rd file out of 12. We're looking at something like 20 minutes or so per file. I tried to restore and start a fresh, it took about 4 hours to copy 22 or so gig of music on there which i thought was fair enough, but at this rate it's going to take that long to do 12 stand-up shows, roughly 100 meg each. My computer isn't ludicrously slow (E4500 and 2 gig of RAM, running windows 7), all my music is on an internal SATA drive so it's not like it's copying from USB drive to USB drive, I'm completely anal about my tags and album art so they're all perfect. I've been completely unable to find an explanation. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
