So I just got an iPod off of ebay. Good customer reviews, 160GB 7th Gen iPod. I have 4325 songs in my iTunes library, all of them previously on my old iPod. Here's what I did: I deleted all the songs from my iTunes library. I copied all the files off my old iPod and added them to my iTunes library, with a copy of each song being created for my iTunes library file. Now, I'm trying to sync my new iPod to my library. It works...for half of the 4000+ songs! The other songs arent synced. So I tried moving them manually. It only works until I get to a particular group of songs, then the (-50) error message pops up. How do I fix this?

I'm also getting requests from my computer to format the iPod as if it were some other disk drive. Should I just return the iPod? Is there a problem with the device or my computer?

What kind of computer are you using? Windows or Mac? If Windows, which version of Windows is it?

If it is XP, you might see if this helps:
