Corruption errors can cause the iPod to freeze and may prevent CopyTrans and CopyTrans Manager from properly copying music back and forth. Here’s how to repair iPod corruption errors.

Your iPod/iPhone library can be corrupt for two reasons:

  • The iPod was unplugged without having been properly ejected first;

  • The use of an alternative iPod manager.

Please go through this troubleshooter to resolve the problem.

Only for CopyTrans Manager users

Solution A:

  • Make sure that you are running the very latest version of CopyTrans Manager. To update to the latest version, please follow these quick directions: How to update to the latest CopyTrans version.

  • Restore the last iPod library backup (created automatically by CopyTrans Manager) by following this guide. If the last library does not fix the problem, try the previous one.

If Solution A does not help, don’t forget to restore the iPod library with today’s date through CopyTrans Manager.

For CopyTrans Manager or CopyTrans users

Solution B:

  • Manually add a song to your iPod through iTunes.

  • Close iTunes and open CopyTrans Manager again to check if the problem is fixed.

WARNING: To avoid “Automatic synchronization” of your iPod by iTunes click and keep the Shift and Ctrl keys pressed while you open iTunes. Please refer to this FAQ article.

Solution C:

  • Restore your iPod library through iTunes. This solution will always work but is radical.
