iTunes 9 creating iPod classic conflicts

updated 09:45 am EDT, Thu September 17, 2009

Users report crashes, sync problems

The recently-launched iTunes 9 update is causing a variety of problems for iPod classic owners, comments on Apple's support forums suggest. Issues primarily revolve around sync, to the extent that a number of people complain they are unable to to sync media at all. Some Classics may be ejected automatically when connected via USB, while others may cause crashes, or fail to be detected by iTunes, preventing any form of interaction including firmware updates.

Apple has yet to offer a solution for the errors, which appear to affect 80, 120 and 160GB Classics syncing with either Mac or Windows systems. A proposed user remedy involves disconnecting a Classic, resetting it and reconnecting. The tactic may backfire however, as some say they have only been left with an iPod empty of content.

    Protection measures

    I wonder if this has anything to do with Apple's attempts to lock out the Pre from impersonating an iPod classic in order to gain iTunes sync functionality.

    What to do?

    My iPod Classic 160GB was sent in for repairs only to find out that the Hard Disk was bad. Apple sent me a new one which should be arriving sometime today. Now I'm concerned that iTunes won't back up my Music Library. Should I even try to sync or not?

    I just bought the iPod Classic (160GB), installed iTunes 9 and have had nothing but troubles since.
