    I am currently on iOS4 and have the newest iTunes available for WinXP. When i try to sync my second gen ipod touch, i get this message: itunes could not backup the ipod because a session could not be started with the ipod. I recently wiped my entire hard drive and reinstalled windows. I synced my ipod once, to transfer purchases and what-not, and since then it hasnt worked at all, i just get that message i have no other ipod related software installed, googling gave me no helpful results, and this if my last effort before i need to try new programs. Any ideas are appreciated, i have full access to any files on my computer if it means anything.

    thanks,

    yeah but a sync session cant get started, it doesnt even get to the point where it backs up

    EDIT: a restore fixed it, although i had to shift+restore because it would try to backup my ipod
