    hello,

    I'm hoping someone smarter than me can help me out.
    I have moved my iTunes stuff across many lappy's lately.
    1st move successful from iBook to Compaq with XP.
    2nd "move" XP 32Bit to Win 7 64Bit on same machine.
    I copied my iTunes folder to an external HD.
    I have copied that folder back into the iTunes directory. iTunes works great!!
    I reauthorized the technically "new" computer. I can log into the store just fine too.
    The problem is when i connect the iPhone to the laptop iTunes recognizes the iPhone and it starts to sync, but after a few 4-6 seconds it just quits syncing. iTunes is fine but zero changes to the phone.

    Do any of you have an Idea of what may be causing this?

    Thanks bunches:D:D:D:D

    I would just restore the phone, and then resync all your stuff since it's all on the new computer. It is probably just not playing nicely with the new computer.

    Go into recovery mode or restore it in DFU mode. See my sig.
