Would be helpful if you provide the Disk Diagnostic info, some weird numbers might indicate a corrupted iPod firmware.
Can I assumed that your iPod software is version 1.1.2?
You missed out Winsock conflicts, some plug-ins Antivirus or monitoring software causes a USB timeout, hence the Sync failed
I would un-install or stop the Antivirus Apps temporarily, whenever I do a Sync, and disconnect the Internet.

Pending Sectors: 17
Power on Hours: 605
Temp: Current 26C
Temp: Min 7C
Temp: Max 46C
My iPod is indeed 1.1.2.
I'm looking into Winsock right now.
With my anti-virus, should I just shut down pretty much everything, try to sync? And if it works then I can pick that apart? Or are there specific plug-ins that are known to be somewhat problematic?

Your DD report looks ok except for the Pending Sector numbers, but that may be cause by timeouts, a hardisk reformat, or a Windows disk error check might fix the problem.
Most cases it is the Antivirus, so read the Antivirus help, on how to exclude monitoring iPod and iTunes.
Yes, it would be a good idea to just run only iTunes and sync, till you know which other software is in conflict.
Most plug-ins that try to emulate Mac OSX is the culprit, so if your Windows 7, look like Mac desktop, it may be the cause.
Read this Apple support Article on conflicts and resolution.

Temp. disabled AVG. Noticeably faster when adding songs to the iPod and got further along than previously. But with about 100 songs to go the same problems occured.
Nothing regarding Winsock is helping either - the only ones that are running are Bonjour-related (one regular, one 64x).
Running out of ideas and patience with this thing.

There is some other plugins, that is monitoring the resource and deadlock the iPod.
Sorry cant help you any further, other then suggesting you read this article on lowlevel format of the iPod
This will clear the Pending Sector. to zero.

I was having the same problem.
I have an i pod classic 80GB (with the wheel) I think it's 5th generation
I would start a Sync, it would sync 2 or 3 songs then stop or hang up, which did not interfere with any other function, so I would not say it froze.
Once I ended the sync by clicking on the X next to the sync progress bar at the top of the window, I ejected the ipod and then plugged it in again. Then I selected my i pod under Devices in the menu on the left-hand side of iTunes. Clicked on the summary tag. Clicked on "Manually manage music and videos" Clicked ok and apply.
When in manual mode, you cn drag songs from iTunes to the device icon in the sidebar. Once I downloaded the song or songs or album that was causing the problem, I then unselected manual load, and everything else was able to sync normally on automatic mode.
