1381 Freeze during sync (podcast updating)

Post by telliott » Tue May 31, 2011 7:02 pm

I've had several devices that kept freezing during sync, with numerous restarts, syncing was never able to finish. I finally suspected that podcast updating during sync caused MM to freeze. I had podcast updating set to every hour. After every restart, podcast updating would start, creating a doomed cycle every time. Finally, I terminated podcast updating and set it to once a day and syncing seems to be working without a problem. I am copying over 1000 files so it takes a while, which isn't a problem as long as MM doesn't freeze. I'm running Windows 7 32 bit and currently syncing a first gen. iPod Touch.

I actually prefer more frequent podcast syncing since one show in particular, Buzz Out Loud comes out in the afternoon and other podcasts need to be downloaded and ready in the morning when I wake up. I really want syncing and podcast updating to be able to happen at the same time.
