View Full Version : iTunes hangs on iPhone sync...

Nov 22, 2008, 03:23 PM
Hey all, Ive been searching but couldnt locate anything. Maybe Im not searching the right way. I have a couple of iPhones that I sync to my MBP. When I sync, they load up all my music, pics, vids and apps no sweat, then when it gets to the stage that says Syncing Merlin's iPhone, it just hangs there. Ive tried a full restore to the latest 2.2 fw but no dice. Ive let it try to sync for an hour and when I check it again its still on that screen...
Any ideas? Do I need to delete iTunes and reinstall? And if so, how do I do that on my Mac? Im fairly new to Mac. Do I just locate iTunes in the Apps folder and move it to the trash bin? Then download it fresh from apple?
Thanks in advance.

By the way, this happens on both my iPhones that I sync to this MBP. I am running the latest version of iTunes, but this was happening before I updated iTunes a couple of days ago...

Ok correction, it wasnt syncing all the movies, music and pics. It looks like it did all the music fine, but would only do half the movies and no pics. Im baffled. I dont want to delete iTunes and reinstall yet cause that will be hell getting my iTunes back to how it is now.
Anyone have any ideas at all about this one? Porfavor

I cant believe no one else is having this same issue.

For anyone who stumbles onto this thread and wants to know... I think this is an issue with my pictures. All of my media is stored on an external drive called Drobo. Even though all my music and videos sync just fine, it hangs on the pictures. When I use iPhone instead it syncs just fine. This was never a problem for me so Id still like to know why its happening all of a sudden.
