I dragged a folder containing lots of music into my iPod touch in iTunes. A message pops up saying there isn't enough room and it will try to transfer as many songs as possible. I click the button to dismiss the message, and then it will start transferring songs. After transferring a few songs the message pops up again. This keeps on repeating. I should only have to see this message once, right? Why does it keep coming up? What is the solution?

How much free space is remaining on your iPod touch and how large is the folder you dragged into iTunes? – MHrappstead Nov 7 '10 at 17:28
The folder is larger than the remaining space of course. – tony_sid Nov 7 '10 at 17:38
I have a feeling this message pops up for each song that is over the limit, which means you'll have to grin and bear it. – user3463 Nov 8 '10 at 5:22
No it pops up whenever it goes into a new directory. The folder I'm trying to move has subfolders inside. When I click ok it transfers all the files from a subfolder, then when it goes to the next subfolder it repeats the message. – tony_sid Nov 8 '10 at 18:51
