    Sometime in the past few weeks, I have stopped being able to synch photos
    to my 64GB iPod Touch. I have about 80 photos totaling maybe 15MB, and
    they used to synch fine. I have about 1.2GB of free space on the Touch (lots
    of music, a number of apps, a few movies, a few books, and some podcasts)
    which should be enough for the photos.

    I have reduced the number of photos synched to 6, but even that fails. I'd
    really like to at least have those - they are the maps of the BART train
    system that I use.

    There is an Apple Support article about an "iPod Photo Cache folder" being a
    potential source of this problem, but I have already removed this folder from
    my iMac. And I've even changed the location of the photos, thinking this
    would force a new set of synch info, but no change.

    Any idea what the solution is? The Apple article seems to suggest a
    complete "Restore", but I really don't want to go through that, given the
    number of songs and apps. And I certainly don't want to lose my place in
    "Angry Birds". ;^)

    Thanks . . .

    If you backup and restore, you won't lose any data, including save data for games, just MAKE SURE it's properly backed up before you procede.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the suggestion - I haven't been able to do this yet, due to many
    other issues (ISP problems being the biggest time sink), but hopefully will
    over the weekend.

    One thing still puzzles me: why did this photo synching stop working? Is this
    a bug in iOS, or did I do something to trigger this?

    Anyway, if it works, I ain't gonna complain . . . ;^)
