I bought a classic 160gb yesterday which I had to exchange today because it was faulty (couldn't sync, eventually itunes reported it as corrupt).

I got another today, which I'm syncing with iTunes now. Every so often I get this error, and it stops:

Attempting to copy to the disk "MY_IPOD" failed. An unknown error has occurred (-1303).

Any ideas?

iTunes 7.6
classic 1.1

My music library is on a network drive.

I have an older ipod sync'd using the same iTunes. I've never had this error with the older ipod - only with the new Classic. For example, yesterday I sync'd 20GB to the old ipod with no problems. Today the classic failed with this error at 2.5gb and 6gb.

    This is very annoying.

    I've just emptied and resync'd my old 40GB ipod as a test. No 1303 errors.

    On the new classic, it failed three times with 1303 errors.

    Searching on the internet, 1303 looks like a disk access error. Is this something strange with the Classic driver?

    I am getting the same 1303-error and my computer crashes. After two restarts I have managed to copy five hours of music to my 160 G iPOD Classic.
    iTunes 7.6
    Vista home

    It seems I found the solution. After unchecking the "Enable disk use" in the iTunes browser window I managed to synchronize my iPod with the music library without any problems.

    I solved this problem by removing the network drive from the loop.

    First I closed iTunes.

    My library music was a network drive at N:\path\iTunes Library

    I copied the library to a USB drive: M:\path\iTunes Library

    I then disconnected N (disconnect network drive), and used Partition Magic to change the drive letter of M to N.

    Then I restarted iTunes. To iTunes, nothing had changed. Underneath, it was now accessing the USB drive instead of the LAN drive. I have no further 1303 problems after this.

    I can only presume that the network drive causes problems when syncing to the ipod classic. It never caused me problems with my old ipod.
