    Problem just showed up today.

    I have iTunes set to sync the last 12 months worth of events from iPhoto to my iPhone. I have never had a problem until today. I recently upgraded the new iPhoto '11 v9.1.2.

    I'll take pictures on one day and then upload them into iPhoto. The next day or so, I'll do the same and Merge them into the same event. For instance, if the pictures are just random (no specific event like a birthday, etc.) I'll just name the event "March 2011" As such, I might take some photos early in the month and then merge some photos into that event that I've taken at the end of the month.

    iTunes has always recognized my Merged events as a single entity. Now, in iTunes, all my events have multiple entries. In other words, I now show 4 separate March 2011 events in iTunes...even though iPhoto only has 1 actual event for March 2011. Its as if iTunes is not looking at iPhoto for the actual event, but rather pulling its "event" data from somewhere else.

    Is anyone else having this issue? This is horrendous, because now in my iPhone, I have multiple "Easter" events, so I can't view them without going in and out of each event separately.

    This is definitely a bug that Apple should know about and fix. Any suggestions.

    That's exactly what's going on with mine. It is so frustrating. I've done everything I can think of to no avail. Apple needs to fix this. This is not typical of "it just works" concerning Apple products.

    Very glad to see this isn't just me. :) I noticed this on my iPhone 4 the other night and after a couple times quitting iPhoto and iTunes in random orders I got it to sync correctly. Then I plugged in my iPhone last night and it messed it all up again, same with my iPad. I disabled photo syncing on both until this gets fixed, so now I'll be checking for updates daily. When you have a library of 10,000+ pictures that are updated almost daily, events getting messed up like this is such a big hassle. :p

    Well I hadn't heard about it and it may have cleared it up for a few latecomers to the party like me!

    No worries, just a little shameless teasing. Just happy it's all fixed now. :p
