Okay, so, as of today, my iPod refuses to sync. I keep getting this error message:
"The iPod <name> cannot be synced. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation"
If I hit 'OK' the sync appears to carry on, but checking my iPod the new song I have (which I got after the first time this happened, so that isn't the cause) isn't on there.

I have already looked around the forum and seen several similar threads, but I tried deleting my iPod photo cache (which seemed to work for everyone else) and that didn't work.
I also have my laptop set up to run a virus scan on a device every time it is plugged in and for some reason the scan on my iPod gets stuck at 83% every time.

Any ideas?
I don't know a lot about computers, but if there's anything else you need to know I'll tell you if I can.
