I've been fortunate in that I haven't had any real issues syncing my iPhone 3G to my Macbook Pro until yesterday. I upgraded my HDD to a Scorpio Black and performed a clean format and install. Leopard is running just fine, speedier in fact. However, my iPhone doesn't sync correctly with iTunes anymore (version 8.0). The iPhone connects to the computer and can be seen in iTunes, however none of my updated playlists or podcasts will transfer over, even though the iPhone and iTunes says the sync completed (with no error message). I can still play my previously purchased music on the iPhone; I de-authorized my computer before installing the new HDD. Also, I noticed that in the "Device backups" field in preferences, my iPhone is listed as "Unknown" and with a date of "12/31/00 7:00PM." I've tried deleting it and syncing to no avail. I've looked everywhere and cannot find a solution, though I have seen others with similar issues. Any help is greatly appreciated; I've tried to be thorough, but please ask me if there's something I can describe to better help you help me.
