Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2009 9:17 AM (in response to jrschle)Same thing happening with my 1st gen touch. Regretting that new firmware update. It is hard not to be cynical in thinking that its one of Apple's ways of getting you to buy the newest models. Do they create these updates and only test on the newest hardware?Windows Vista

Have you tried reset?

Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2009 10:26 AM (in response to jrschle)Thanks for the replys guys. This morning I disabled the iPod Touch and went thru the "reinstall new hardware" process described in the link in my original post. Thought that might help resolve the problem but it didn't. I then uninstalled iTunes and then reinstalled, still no go. I haven't tried a reset to restore to factory settings. The main reason is I don't think that the problem is with the iPod Touch. I think it's in the syncing process, in particular with the backup. During the sync, the backup process writes an unbelievable amount of files to my
\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\ folder. Last time I checked there were over 75,000 (and still growing) files in that folder all very small in size. Does anyone know if there is a way to force NO backup during sync? I'm pretty sure that's where my problem is.Falcon Northwest, Windows Vista
