2. the problem

2.1. plug in to synch

2.1.1. iTunes connects

2.1.2. begins sync

2.1.3. stuck on first file

2.2. eventually ejects iPod

2.2.1. The iPod <NAME> cannot be synced. The required disk cannot be found.

2.2.2. The iPod <NAME> cannot be synced. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation.

2.2.3. Disk on iPod continues to spin. Do not disconnect on display.

2.2.4. Must perform hard reset to gain access to iPod

2.2.5. Attempting to copy to the disk <name> failed. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation. iTunes could not save to your Music Folder because you do not have write access. Check the permissions on your Music Folder and folders in your Music Folder, then try copying this file again.
