    Hi all im now to the forum and I hope this problem below is common :mad:

    I downloaded IOS5 at 6pm (UK time) as everybody else did, I got all the usual error messages. Eventually my Iphone 3GS is now working BUT all of my music has gone and I had ALOT of music. I have had to re sync 5 times now as it kept crashing. The final attempt seemed to be working at 10pm UK time so I went to bet - got up at 4am to find it had copied the music across but all the songs were greyed out. You cant play them etc - also the art work was missing SO I started a further re sync and now its putting the art work back on and the songs are accessible again. Due to the huge amount of songs I have I have now had to leave my phone running while im at work as it takes hours

    Was everybody’s else music removed form the Iphone when doing the IOS5 update? Its so frustrating as i will be upgrading mid November to the 4S

    Any advice will not go amiss

    Hello all BTW

    Yes, this happened to everyone. Glad you had a full iTunes backup.

    I had no issues at all updating. All my apps/music/contacts/emails were as they were prior to updating

    Thats reassuring

    I have about 6500 songs on my phone so you can imagine how long it takes to sync everytime plus I have that highjer bit rate thing ticked to reduce the capacity

    Everything else on my Iphone is ok - so its very odd

    Hmmm off home for my lunch breack for half an hour

    Will my phone have finally finished this bizare cover art sync or will it have all switched off

    fingers crossed! But finding this incredibly frustrating. We still have an Ipad2 and another Iphone to update yet
