Currently Being ModeratedApr 12, 2010 10:24 AM (in response to LindaPf)Same problem here. Any solutions out there?iPad 32gb, iPhone OS 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2010 4:25 PM (in response to localecho)I'm getting the same warning. The weird thing is if I click on the photos tab and click on "events from last 2 months" I get the error. If I change it to "events from last month," I don't get the error..
any ideas?iMac 2.8, quad core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 14, 2010 5:53 PM (in response to Rick Smith)I had sent to trash a number of photo's in Iphoto and when I tried to sync with Itunes I got the message " The IPad cannot be synced. The required file cannot be found." Although the photo's can be viewed in Iphoto I'm not able to transfer them on to the iPad.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 15, 2010 9:51 AM (in response to LindaPf)I also just received the "required file cannot be found" message. Not sure at what point in the sync. All the top status bar says is "Syncing...".
Syncing seems to be a tedious error prone process with the iPad. On plugging the iPad in, iTunes starts displaying the spinning beachball of death for 5 minutes before the iPad displays "Syncing" and then another few minutes before it shows up in iTunes.
Certainly not what I would have expected.iMac 2.8G,, Graphite Clamshell, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPhone, iPad, Mac OS X (10.6), Windoze.....
Currently Being ModeratedApr 17, 2010 8:13 AM (in response to LindaPf)I called Apple and talked to a senior tech who had me fix the problem. The problem is with the ipod photo cache.
He had me do the following:
1. go to home folder in finder
2. open pictures folder
3. right click on iphoto library and click on show package contents
4. Find "ipod photo cache" file and drag to desktop
5. Close finder
6. Reopen itunes and sync ipad
7. The ipod photo cache rebuilds itself
This resolved my issue.MacBook pro, iPhone OS 3.1.3, Ipad

I just got home from the Apple store with my new 3G iPad and had the same error. I followed your "fix" and it worked perfectly, the photos are syncing as I type this.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 10, 2010 3:47 AM (in response to Bresaur)Awesome!!! But i ask why did it do this in the first place? I was splitting some events in iphoto and changing some picture titles… is this the reason? am i to leave everything as it is, never to touch the library again just so i can sync with my iPhone i will go mad!MacBook Pro

Currently Being ModeratedJun 5, 2010 5:36 PM (in response to TheMrSheen)Have you ever transferred photos from iPhoto to an iPod and/or iPhone?
When transferring photos to an iPhone or iPad, photos are optimized for viewing on the device as part of the iTunes sync/transfer process, which creates the iPod Photo Cache. If the cache gets corrupted for whatever reason, the error message will be the result.
I've been transferring photos from my iPhoto Library to two iPhones for nearly 3 years now and I haven't experienced the same yet. This includes making changes to photos in my iPhoto library, adding/removing photos from iPhoto albums selected to be transferred to the iPhones, etc.
This is not something that should be required on a regular basis. MacBook Pro 15" Intel Core 2 Duo/2.53GHz/4GB RAM/500GB HD, Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 3G 16GB
Currently Being ModeratedJun 7, 2010 1:58 AM (in response to Bresaur)Thanks,
It worked perfectly for me, even I was not syncing from iPhoto library.
For those who are not syncing from other folders, rather than iPhoto, you actually do the same steps mentioned above. There is always a folder called "iPod photo cache". Just delete it and re-sync the folder, you'll fine.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPad 3.2 iPhone 3.1
