Well this Christmas I got a new 30 GB iPod w/ video capabilities and I’m having a problem. The same problem, in fact, that I was having with my old iPod shuffle.
At first glance, all seems to be all right. The iPod will sync my music and podcasts automatically and without problem, but when I try to change the settings on my iPod for syncing, in this case, to enable syncing for movies, I get the following two error messages:
“The iPod “Landon’s iPod” cannot be updated. An unknown error occurred (-50).”
"The iPod “Landon’s iPod cannot be updated. The disk cannot be read from or written to”
I’ve tried everything, and I mean everything I could find on the internet. The iPod still works with other computers, and from diagnostics it appears as if my iPod is in perfect working order, so the problem would seem to be with my computer hardware/software. I tried hooking up to all six different USB 2.0 ports on my comp, re-installing iTunes, updating, reseting and reinstalling iPod software, checked for Windows System Updates (running Windows XP Professional SP2), and probably some other attempts that I don’t quite remember.
So here’s the question: do any of you guys have any idea how to fix it? Any suggestions to try or look into? Any help would be immensely appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
