I upgraded to iTunes 10 now my library won't sync! It syncs a few hundred songs (I have thousands) and then stops with the error "The iPod "blah" cannot be synced. A duplicate file name was specified."
I've changed the usb port, restored the iPod, "Repaired" iTunes in Control Panel, Formatted the disc in Windows - done EVERYTHING every forum has suggested. And the error STILL occurs. It seems many people are having this same problem. Please APPLE help out here.

iPod Classic, Windows Vista

    Well thanks for no help thus far, Apple. I ran diagnostics and it just says ERROR. I've looked this up and it says the iPod is dead, basically. Great. Guess I'll see if I can send it in for a credit or replacement or something.

    The same thing happened to me. I also kept having all these error messages pop up. I put in a fix for one of them. Now my i pod will sync even though that message keeps popping up. Every time it pops up I have to press ok for the sync to continue. It is annoying. I would like to know how to make the message stop. It only started with this i tunes 10. I also lost a lot of music out of i tunes and am having to add folders 5 or 6 times to make i tunes take it. I still have more music that will not sync. At this point I am just happy to have gotten the 8000 songs on it that are there. This has been one endless headache. I also deleted my library and re-added it from another suggestion from another threat suggesting corrupted music files might be causing the problem. When I run a sync diagnostic in i tunes it says there is no ipod. When I run a connection diagnosis it does say the i pod is there.
