Received an 80GB iPod Video for X-mas and am in the process of fillin it up. I created a playlist, selected about 73GB of music to dump to the iPod, and let iTunes work its magic. 3 hours later, it had only managed to transfer about 18GB of music! Ouch. Now, I know that iTunes/ipod is creating its own directory structure and I DO have album art selected to sync as well, but that seemed a bit slow to me. So, I ejected the iPod, tried another USB port, and started again. It seems to be averaging about 1GB /11 minutes. At this rate, it will take about 14hours to fill the ipod?!?!? Yikes!

Anyone have an answer? Does the album art sync add a lot of time to the process? Does the iPod just contain a slower drive?

System details:
Precision 650: Dual P4 Xeons@ 2.80Ghz
2GB of RAM.
XP Pro SP2
The music is transfering from a 7200RPM Seagate HDD via IDE.
USB 2.0 Connection
