    I have both my iPhone and iPad set for wifi sych. However, each time I click on the device and click synch, iTunes goes through the process of looking for the device. Then the device disappears from iTunes. I'm on the same wifi network when I'm doing this. Did anyone else run into this problem and know of a possible fix?

    Did you plug it in with the usb cable first and connect to iTunes, then check off sync over wifi? I had that issue when i first setup mine.

    Yes. I initially set it up with USB cable. After the device goes away, I can force iTunes to recognize the device by doing a synch through the device. Was just wondering if anyone else had a similar wifi synch issue.

    mine's gotten weird like that too, the only thing i can suggest is rebooting everything, computer, router, iPad, etc...

    I think I might have found the solution. My devices are not plugged into a power source. I will try doing the wifi sych while the device is charging.
