    I've noticed in the last few days my 2g will not come out of sync after I transfer some music to it. Once the transfer is complete the ipod will just remain in sync mode and I have to physically cancel the sync by using the screen slide bar. The music is fine and the ipod is transferring correctly and all but this has me worried about the dreaded future.

    I just moved some files over now and let it remain in sync mode and it would drop back to the home screen as if it were finished, then return to sync mode immediately. It did this three times before finally returning to the home screen for good. The only thing that might be causing problems here is the music files in question are about 85-100 megs and run about and hour long a piece. Could that cause sync oddities?

    Are you on the latest firmware (or at least 2.2) on your iPod and the latest iTunes?

    Problems were with 2.2 with latest iTunes. I have upgraded firmware since but haven't tested it out yet.

    You might want to restore it, it will erase all your settings so better wait for a better answer or do some research before doing this.
