ITunes 9.0.2 crashes/hangs when syncing

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
I bought a 64GB iPod Touch this October, and at first all was well. Since I updated iTunes I have no longer been able to sync my iPod. I'm running iTunes 9.0.2 now, and it works fine until I connect my iPod, at which point iTunes hangs. I don't even hit the "Sync" button, it just hangs as soon as it tries to recognize the iPod. I have let the beach ball spin for an hour without any progress, and forcing it quit is the only way out of the app. In another thread it was suggested that Genius playlists might be at fault, but I had not turned them on. (I did turn them on, and then off again, to see if that might fix it for some unknown reason. It didn't.)
Thankfully I can still charge my iPod, but I would really like to be able to sync it again.
I'm running a MacBook (purchased in May 2006 when they had that run of discolored palm rests) with OSX 10.4.11 Tiger.
Can anyone help me out?

The Best Answer

I have a similar issue. It looks like my iTunes (v. 9.0.2) crashes every time it attempts to connect to the itunes store/download a podcast. When I disconnect myself from the Internet there are no problems (other then not being able to connect to the Internet... which is not really an option).
Anyone have the solution to this? My next step is to reinstall iTunes. I'll post an update if this works.
