    My iTunes syncing of my iPhone 4 is frozen. I was deleting photo albums off of my iPhone. I hit the X button in the main status window on iTunes, and hit the eject button next to the iPhone device in the left hand window.

    All I'm getting is the beach ball spinning. I want to eject and re-sync, but I don't want to just disconnect in fear of ruining something.

    Error (-39)

    Thanks to a September 09 posting by MacRumors member Remora, here is his solution for the "Unknown Error (-39)" error and it works!!

    Thanks to MR member Aggie for pointing it out to me.

    An easier and quicker way.

    This error is associated with your iPhoto library.

    Navigate to <username>/Pictures/iPhoto Library

    Right-click on iPhoto Library and show package contents.

    Remove the folder iPod Photo cache (delete it, move it to Trash or whatever you want - just remove it from the iPhoto Library!)

    Sync your iPhone. The photos will reverify and, bin go, you're done.

    I had 3833 images and it took less than 10 minutes.

    All fixed.
