    My friend has an iPod touch 2g 8 GB, and today we were trying to transfer music over to it but for some reason iTunes wouldnt load his ipod.

    I get this error, and I dont know why but i've used itunes before to transfer music to his ipod. The only different thing that happened is that I used my 5g ipod video cable instead of his touch cable

    So i tried to use a different application to add music (Copytrans) since itunes wasnt working. After I had transferred the music, it said to go to the music app and hold the menu screen for 5 seconds...

    dumb move right? all the music ended up disappearing on the ipod, but in the settings menu, all the GB is still being taken up.

    I even ran Touchcopy and it still shows some/most songs on there. I've since tried to do an all settings reset but to no avail. Really trying to avoid a full on factory restore on it

    Would using an older ipod cable cause these issues?

    If the iPod can be seen by iTunes, it's not a cable issue - it's the same danged USB cable after all. If you want to be absolutely sure, switch computers or cables. If it still can't be read, Restore the danged iPod.
