Currently Being ModeratedJul 30, 2007 2:50 PM (in response to Sinnwell)exact same problem here.60 GB 5th gen iPod, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 30, 2007 5:09 PM (in response to Steve Whitsett)Ok... I have fixed mine. I was having the exact same issue for the past few months, and like you I was just ignoring it. I had tried reformatting the iPod through disk utility etc... Nothing worked.
I finally got a clue when I realized it was syncing music, podcasts, videos, BUT it was not syncing photos. When I unchecked the option to sync photos, I stopped getting this message. I then realized that my inability to get photos to stream from this same mac to my Apple TV could be related. I tried rebuilding the iPhoto database and thumbnail files.... to no avail. I then searched the iPhoto forum here at Apple. I found this post
After deleting every iPhoto cache folder I could find, I restarted iTunes and rechecked the option to sync photos.... it worked fine... and no stupid message that I didn't have access privileges. It did pop up a message that the iPod was already synced with a different photo library.... do I want to switch and replace with the new one? After saying yes, it has been working fine. Incidentally, the Apple TV is now able to stream photos from this mac as well.
Hope this helps.Macbook Pro 15", Mac OS X (10.4.10), iPod 5th gen. 60GB
