Curious if there's any ideas here. Check http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1885983&tstart=30 iPhone 3G iPhone Apple TV iTunes 8.0.2 Updated iPhone 3G to 2.2.1 and everything appeared to go well. On the next sync, iTunes crashes. On any future sync, the iPhone attempts to sync automatically on connect even though I'm configured to manually sync (probably due to a past failed sync?). On any sync attempt, iTunes crashes (appears to be when something is supposed to be copied to the iPhone - app update, new photo, new podcast, etc... but can't verify). Connected old iPhone with 2.2 firmware and it also fails now on sync in a similar way. AppleTV sync appears to work fine. Others in the Apple thread have reset their phone and reinstalled iTunes (though I don't know if they deleted the library/sync data) and now have a phone with only the default apps, no songs, no videos. Anyone else? Any ideas?
