The scanning interferes with the iPod properly communicating with iTunes and your computer.MacPro Dual Core 2.66 Ghz, MacBook Pro 15", iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.6), AEXs, Red 2G & 5G Nano, Red Shuffle, 160 GB Classic, Apple TV

I had the same error message. The problem turned out to be related to me syncing pictures.
When I elected to sync pictures, iTunes presented me with several folders and I chose to sync all of them. Later I realised that those folders actually belonged to another account on the same PC (an administrator account). Consequently I did not have access privileges to copy them onto the iPod.
When I deselected the picture folders that did not belong to my account, the problem went away.

Good hint here....User Permissions.... I had the same error and found several responses about having you delete your iPhoto cache, but to no avail I was still getting the error. If you are like us we have one iMac, multiple useraccounts with a share Media folder for Music and Photos, and the iPhoto library I wanted to copy was created by another account.
After reading "brianfrombadock" comment about the iphoto belonging to another user I check mine and it was missing the user account I was trying to sync with, once I added that user all works fine now.

I found that, if you are sharing an iPhoto library between multiple accounts then the file permissions on the ipod photo cache are generally an issue. Right-Click on the iPhoto library, show package contents. On the ipod photo cache folder show info. Check out the permissions and rectify them if required making sure to apply to all contents. That solved the problem for me.

The photos with accidentally added weird files and ipod photo cache folders were my issue. I deleted those, re-syched, and we're good to go. Thanks.
