Currently Being ModeratedOct 25, 2009 9:02 PM (in response to lotusdrift)For me, I have narrowed the problem down to my anti-virus/firewall (Zonealarm). If I sync with antivirus on, no content. If I disable antivirus before I sync, no problems. Cheers.Vista Ultimate 64, FW 3.1.2
Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 9:08 AM (in response to RangerPrimeX)Same thing here. Seemingly random "No Content" in iPod section of iPhone 3GS. Although, I just resync and it restores itself. This needs to be addressed by Apple. In the meantime, it would be nice to find a workaround when you are away from the computer (iTunes).
Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 3:57 PM (in response to RangerPrimeX)My scenario:
- 2 PC computers
- 1 install of iTunes on each computer
- 1 computer is used to download podcasts at work
- The other computer is used to sync music from my home library
- Just started getting the No Content bug after 3 months of the problem disappearing, prior to updating 3.1.2
- Updated 3.1.2, still got the bug.
I had an iPod touch full of music from my home library, but decided to copy over an album from my work computer. The No Content bug has now vanished (for now).iPod Touch, iPhone OS 3.1.2, Windows 7
Currently Being ModeratedNov 3, 2009 6:37 PM (in response to RangerPrimeX)I'm wondering if anyone else has tried changing the way their iPhone is connected to their PC when syncing to see if it fixes this problem. I usually use a desktop docking station, which connects through a USB hub to my computer (which runs 64-bit Windows 7, BTW). I get the "No Content" problem randomly, but more often than not. However, once I changed to a direct connection to my computer using the supplied USB cable, I've stopped having the problem. Maybe this is just a coincidence? Maybe others could try this and report your results?LG E500, Other OS, iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedNov 3, 2009 6:44 PM (in response to pdwhite)I actually didn't put two and two together until just now, but I haven't had the no content error since I got my Otterbox case, which means I can't use my dock. I stopped getting the error when I stopped using my dock.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2009 1:43 AM (in response to RangerPrimeX)Same problem here and this is the second time in one week (iPhone 3GS, 32gb, 3.1.2). It's pretty frustrating, since the only remedy I've found is a complete restore. And it always happens when I don't have 40 minutes to sit down and restore my iPhone. I've had to restore my iPhone more times than I don't know what. I might just need to go to an Apple Store and get the **** thing replaced.iPhone 3GS, iPhone OS 3.1.2
Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2009 4:20 PM (in response to RangerPrimeX)Same problem for me. Any chance of getting an answer from Apple anytime soon?iPhone OS 3.1.2

when is this going to be fixed???various, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedNov 7, 2009 7:36 PM (in response to RangerPrimeX)After going back to using my standard Apple sync cable, I haven't encountered the problem again. I think maybe an update to iTunes has caused 3rd-party sync docks to somehow mess up the iPod media on an iPhone. It would be helpful if others can confirm or deny this, thanks.LG E500, Other OS, iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedNov 8, 2009 9:11 AM (in response to pdwhite)I have never used a non-Apple sync cable or dock and this occurred to me, though only once (when I upgraded to iTunes 9.0 and iPhone 3.1). So I doubt it has anything to do with the cable.HP, Windows Vista

Currently Being ModeratedNov 14, 2009 11:11 AM (in response to Sawbones64)Goodness - have been looking on-line every so often for ages - and there's the answer (for me anyway)... Disable the anti-virus and firewall - everything on every itouch pops straight back up... Have had to try to crash the sync in the past to get the library to re-update - but that did it straight away...
Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2009 11:16 PM (in response to RangerPrimeX)I've been having this problem since September and I've narrowed it down to a few things.
The current library does not seem to like content with descriptions or episode numbers. I think there's some shoddy XML interpretation or something and if the library has bad characters in it it seems to crap out. I deleted every single comment, description or episode ID from all TV shows, movies and podcast and rebuiot my PC library and all was well for a month.
But the auto podcast downloading screwed me a week ago and picked up a new one.
You can short term fix it by adding one clean song, and resyncing. That will rebuild the library correctly but the next time you sync it will be screwed again and you have to re-sync again, adding one more song.
I think it's absolutely PATHETIC that I posted about this well over a month ago and have still not seen a response from Apple. The iTouch was my first and likely last ipod due to crap supportAMD, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2009 9:27 AM (in response to wrotch)You could not have described my situation more closely, except that I was on a long road trip. Now I'm far from my syncing computer (at home), and I'm on my laptop where I can see the information in iTunes, but do nothing about it15" MBP (2008, pre-unibody), iPhone OS 3.1.2
