    Hello all,
    First post long time reader.
    I am wondering if anyone else's iphone seems to sync real slow?
    It took like 20 min to update some small podcasts.
    Maybe I am thinking to much and should just go with the slow flow.:D

    Which USB port are you using? Make sure its the 2.0 USB port - it will work in the USB 1.0 port but will be very slow (on a PowerBook the USB 2.0 is on the left, not sure which type of computer your using)

    thanks more info

    I am on a Mbp hooked up to a cinema display.
    I have the dock attached to the back
    of the display. That should be USB2
    I thought. It was fast the first time
    not now though.
    thanks JOZA

    So when you have sync problems like these, try to remove the following folder(s)

    /user/Library/Application Support/SyncServices/Local

    The programs doing to sync will recreate the files after you delete them and it provides you with a fresh start.

    Always wise to backup the files before you delete them in case you want to reverse the process.

    If that doesn't work: Try setting the sync to only sync one item at a time. (turn each tab off except one) Try turning that one off and seeing if it works through all the other syncs ok.
