    So iTunes says it is syncing music and videos, but when it is done, there's no music in the iPod app while iTunes shows that the audio and video are taking up 10 GB of space. Anyone else experiencing this on 3.0 beta? (I'm getting an error that my calendar appts won't sync, if that has anything to do with it...)

    Don't worry tiger. You're not alone. I'm seeing the same thing.

    Just curious. 2 Questions to you both:

    - What version of software are you on?
    - If on 3.0 did you restore from New?

    Either that's very interesting, or really, really weird ..
    I did the same but thankfully I'm not experiencing the same issue as yourself.

    Have you tried restoring? The first time I installed 3.0, Mail wouldn't launch.
    I restored, and it did. Maybe just as simple as restoring.

    Let me know how it goes ..

    I'm having the same problem.......also, iTunes won't stop syncing mine. Once it finishes supposedly putting everything on, it just sits there saying "Syncing iPhone" and I have to exit out, iTunes freezes, and then I continue about my buisness. Actually right after I posted this it finally kicked me back to the springboard and let me know that it had finished syncing! I checked and all of my music and video are on now.

    It may sound stupid but try excluding 'Contacts' 'Email' and 'Calendars' from your sync on the 'Info' panel. I got my normal media sync back from that.
    I found that iTunes seems to stick at syncing over my contacts - which just plain sucks, but ... it is a beta. :rolleyes:

    YES! Thank you! Let me know if a new restore works like they are suggesting, I'm gonna try and kill my battery first before I hook it up again.

    -3.0 beta
    -I did the Shift+Restore trick from 2.2.1 to 3.0 beta. Is that "New"?
