so, my problem is that Spotify crashes while syncing with iPod shuffle.
Spotify - latest
iPod - latset model with fw 1.0.2
How to reproduce the problem:
1. Start Spotify
2. Select iPod (spotify will immediadely start syncing whatever it wants - very annoying)
3. Try to choose "manual syncing"
4. Eventually Spotify will crash (within 10s)
5. Typically when you start Spotfy again, iPod device shows blank window rendering sync functionality unusable.
Once I was lucky to manually sync my playlists, but then I found duplicate playlists that contained only local files (no spotify music).
PS. A popup window that displays warning "We will have to erase your iPod in order to sync" sometimes is unresponsive. Clicking buttons does not do anything.

I am having exactly the same problem. I have a brand new iPod shuffle, I've got my free one month trial of Spotify Premium, I have created my running playlist and thought I'd sync'd it, went for my run this morning and found I had 3 tracks on my new iPod- not great on a 10k / 55 minute run!
Any help to overcome this problem would be welcome! Unless I can sort this out, dont think I'll be carrying on with my Premium spotify account once the free bit ends.....
You can't sync any content from the Spotify catalogue to an iPod nano/shuffle/classic/mini, Spotify will only sync local files you already own just like iTunes.
To listen to Spotify content, you need a device that supports the Spotify app like an iPod Touch.
