    I've got a problem with iTunes.

    Whenever I sync my 1G iPod Touch, iTunes would freeze when the sync is finishing. This doesn't happen with my iPhone 3GS though.

    Does it have a 3.1.1 firmware? It's not Jailbroken is it?

    anyone?

    i'll be more specific to when exactly it freezes. whenever you install apps or add music or video, you see the progress bar on top in the iTunes Window. After all the media has been installed, the progress bar will disappear and then it'll say Syncing iPod Touch to prompt that it's about to finish. That's when it hangs, everything that I added will be installed though.

    Have you tried waiting until it finishes syncing? Mine takes a long time to sync.

    yeap. i always wait til it finishes. it takes a long time for iTunes to start working again after loading everything. basically it freezes after everything has been loaded then after a few minutes it'll work again.

    Yeah, restore the touch! I'm sure you have backed up your data.

    alright will try that after updating. since it's backed up, my save game data won't be lost? i don't want to start all over again in GT: Racing Motor Academy, Plants vs Zombies and Peggle. :p

    Yup, your saved games will be restored from backup (assuming of course that you were able to successfully perform a backup).

    As long as you restore from backup, you're good..
