So I have a 80gb ipod mb1477ll, and when I try to sync I get a couple hundred songs done and I get a "song title" cannot be be transferred because of an unknown error 53 or sometimes 50. I also sometimes get a "users" ipod failed because disk is not available. After I exit those dialogs it just sits there forever and says finishing sync do not disconnect at the top of iTunes. My wife's ipod 120gb classic same gen, I think works just fine with the same USB port and cable. I've been seeing that I probably need a new HDD for the ipod? What do you guys think? Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I'm running win7

iPod and iTunes are up to date
