    My iPad won't sync because "an earlier synchronisation session is already active" according to the iTunes error.

    I already quit iTunes, restarted my Mac, rebooted my iPad, to no avail.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Won't sync

    I am hardly an expert but this happened to me.

    On the iTunes summary page for the iPad hit the Version RESTORE button. After the restore your first sync will take a long time as all videos, music, etc is wiped from the iPad. You will have to change back any personal settings you had as well.

    There may be a better way but this should work.

    This happens to me a fair bit
    You can delete your back up in iTunes and sync again but it often comes back

    Did a Restore work for you?
