Nice device rendered almost unusable by iTunes,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Apple iPod touch 64 GB Black (4th Generation) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
From a hardware point of view, the 4th Gen touch is a nicely thought out device that combines a capable media player with good PDA functionality. Issues on the hardware side are minor: as others have noted, the camera is merely bearable and, while slim and shiny look good, they are also hard to hold and easy to drop.
But good hardware needs software. After installing iTunes 10 on my very quick Windows 7 machine, initial sync with MS Outlook contacts and calendar was seamless - Ironically you can't do this with MS's own Zune. Then I added my music collection. You probably think a 64GB media player would be capable of syncing about 2000 music tracks. Silly goose - not with iTunes. After about 24 hours of `determining gapless playback information' with no end in sight, no music had been synced - not a single track. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, and disabled just about every option I can find - yet it still takes 3 to 5 minutes just to open a menu or select a view in iTunes. I will experiment with iTunes alternatives - let the weeks of trouble shooting begin.

Uninstall iTunes and reinstall it. I had some trouble it just a few weeks ago, as well, but the problem was fixed when I reinstalled it. Also, if you haven't already, have iTunes check for updates, as there may be an update available that could fix this problem. :) I hope this helps. I know it's a bummer to have some piece of brand new tech not working, especially when it's kind of your present to yourself around Christmastime.
