Having uploaded music onto itunes I attempted to sync my ipod classic (120GB), but after managing to sync some of the tracks (titles A-C), i receive the message: unknown error (-81)
Can anyone help?

- Texas, where else?
- 15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
error code -81 is "sector number never found on a track"
I can only guess here what that means - whatever song iTunes is trying to sync next, the system is unable to locate it. Time for troubleshooting, to determine which song is causing the issue. Whether it's a faulty file, file written to a bad sector, ??, it's going to take someone a lot more knowledgeable than I am to answer.
I'd try unchecking maybe 10 songs at the point where you think the sync is stopping, try again and attempt to narrow it down.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
