Also receiving the same error. New iPod, never synced before. iTunes 126.96.36.199.
The iPod will start to sync, and gets to at least 60 files/songs, then I receive the pop up message. I'm not sure at what point the message pops up, because I walk away from the computer when it is syncing, but I have seen it still syncing when it gets to at least 60 files/songs.
Congratulations!!!! The days of your worries have just ended, (or started), because I found a solution to this problem. I have been having this problem for some time and I finally found a way to solve it, or go around it actually. so here it is:
Problem: The iPod "XXX" cannot be synced. The required folder cannot be found.
The problem with syncing: The iPod cannot sync more than 25 songs at a time or this message will pop up.
Click on your iPod tab and restore your iPod.
Connect your iPod and make sure that "Manually Manage Music" button is checked.
Go to your music tab in iTunes. Scroll to the top.
Click on the first song, Hold down Shift button, and then click like 20 songs down.
Click and Drag the selected songs to your iPod tab.
Repeat Steps 1 - 5 till you put in all your music.
This will be an easy task if you only have like 500 songs or so. I had 2000+ songs,so this will be a drag for me.
P.S. Tell me if this worked for you because it worked for me.
Hey, very nice solution. Except that when i try to restore my iPod the same message pops up again, so it won't restore at all!!
when i connect the ipod, it syncs, but as i wasn't able to add new songs, i unmarked the sync options (i was hoping that would solve the problem). However, what i got is an empty ipod, no songs or photos, that when it's connected syncs nothing. If i try to sync anything, itunes says "do not disconnect ipod, syncing" (maybe is not like that, my itunes is in spanish) after a while the message pops up and nothing is synced.
The only change i made to my sistem was installing a software that emulates a mac. maybe that the problem.
Please, someone help me!
