Hi - i hope someone has the answer to this - for some reason my ipod is taking an age to sync - about 5 mins per song! so it's been running for over 24 hours and still not done. I'm running vista ultimate with all the latest patches etc and version of itunes. When i plug the ipod in (same thing happens to my other 2 ipods) in vista scans them and always wants to fix them for corruption and adobe downloader always picks them up really quickly and scans at speeds you would expect of USB2. if i cancel out of the downloader and disk scan, itunes picks it up easily - knows how many tracks it needs to re sync and then starts syncing away.. but it takes an ages. Any offers of insight greatly appreciated. This is only a recent occurence.

custom, Windows Vista

    Have you tried a different USB port?

    Still haven't heard anything great about Vista. That could be your problem.

    It could have to do with your virus software. Check to see if it is set to scan all drives. If so, disable it for the iPod drive when it is attached. That will definately make a difference. The virus software is trying to scan each file that you are adding to the disk (iPod). That is how Windows, and the virus software see the iPod.
    Hope this helps.
