    Same problem here. Error 1140 when trying to sync multiple devices on both iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 6.0 using iTunes 10.7, iPhoto 9.4 and Mac OS 10.8.2. The option to select individual albums, events or faces is disabled. I have to turn off photo syncing entirely (while leaving my pictures on my devices) in order to successfully sync. This certainly seems to be an issue with iPhoto 9.4 and I seem to remember something similar happening a few versions back. This is not an obscure issue so I am not sure why their testing wouldn't have caught this.

    Thanks George. Your solution worked for me.

     

    I have iOS 5.1.1, iTunes 10.7, iPhoto 9.4, and OS X 10.7.5. Like you, the options to select albums, events, or faces has been disabled. I also had to turn off photo syncing to successfully sync. I had no problems yesterday before I upgraded to iPhoto 9.4 and no problems with the upgrades of iTunes to 10.7 or the upgrade of OS X to 10.7.5. I upgraded iPhoto to 9.4 today and the problem started.

    Same here with my iPhone 4S since I updated...

    Same problen with iPhone 4 an d iPad 2.  Syncing selected iPhoto albums etc. is grayed out and I must deselect photo syncing altogether.  Interestingly, I plugged the iPhone into a MacBook I use at work (fully updated Mac OS 10.8.2, iPhoto 9.4, iTunes 10.7) and the "Sync Selected Albums..." in the iTunes Photo tab was enabled and albums/events etc. were displayed. The phone is not paired with this computer so I don't know if it means anything... just another puzzle piece.

    Same here, we should really no better than updating without seeing feedback but hey we all want to have the latest software!

  • jamesfromminnetonka Calculating status...

    Experiencing the same issues post upgrade(s). Hope there's a quick fix vs having to back off the updates etc.

  • numerosix Calculating status...

    10.8.2 + 6.0 + 10.7 + 9.4 = same problem...

     

    I should have wait a little bit before updating all my devices...

     

    Please Apple, a fix !!!

    I'm using OSX 10.8.2, iTunes 10.7, iPhoto 9.4 and an iPhone 4 with 5.1.1.

     

    Option to selecte specific photos is grayed out...

    Just a reminder that Apple doesn't read these discussion pages, so anyone and everyone who's affected by this issue should file a bug report with at http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphoto.html .  The more of us who complain about this bug, the more quickly Apple will turn its attention to fixing it!

    I have the same problem here - OS X 10.7.5, then upgraded iPhoto to 9.4 yesterday. Thank god for Time Machine, I'm rolling back to iPhoto 9.3.

     

    I have a friend with the same model MacBook Pro and save versions of all software, but he has yet to upgrade to 10.7.5 - and his Apple Software Update doesn't advertise iPhoto v9.4. Furthermore, in the Mac App Store, when he looks at iPhoto, it says there is an update available - 9.4 - but that it requires Mountain Lion.

     

    Makes me wonder if somebody jumped the gun at Apple Update, and they have since recalled it. Poor us though, who did the upgrade right away....

    I had this issue and solved it by doing the following (warning it's not for the faint of heart; be very careful, no warranties etc...).

    * right clicked on "iPhoto Library" and selected "show package contents"

    * opened the file AlbumData.xml in TextEdit (take a backup of this file first)

    * found an instance of & on its own in a music file name, changed it to &

      -- I believe & is a control character and should always be followed by something like amp; or apos;

      -- eg "mum & dad" should read "mum & dad"

    * saved the file and opened iPhoto

    * opened iTunes and then synced

     

    I believe it to be a bug in the iPhoto update, I found this issue in an album from 2004, and have never seen this issue until upgrading.

    Right -- thank God for Time Machine! I just rolled back to iPhoto 9.3.2 and restored my iPhoto library. Everything is back to normal. No 1140 error, the options to sync selected events and other items are back, and my photos synced to my iPod with no issues.

    Yep. Now waiting for iPhoto 9.4.1.

    I reported the bug to Apple! iPhoto 9.4 doesn't exist as a version to choose when reporting bugs

  • Andrew Patterson Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    after further investigation iPhoto reverts the change on closing, as a temp workaround I will just replace any song with an & anywhere in the path with something without it

    eg

     

    <string>/Volumes/HD Bay 2/iTunes/iTunes Music/Music/Blur/Parklife/01 Girls & Boys.m4a</string>

     

    replace with

     

    <string>/Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/Resources/Music/Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring.mp3</string>

     

     

    or I suppose I could rename the track in iTunes to remove &

     

    or I suppose I could stop messing with it and wait for Apple to fix it

    I tried that and there was only one ampersand in the file. Here's what it looks like:

     

    <string>/Users/(deleted)/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/András Schiff/Bach - Two &amp; Three Part Inventions/06 Two-Part Invention No. 6 in E Maj.m4a</string>

     

    So, it already had the "&amp" string but I still had the syncing issues with iPhoto 9.4. Could it be special characters (e.g., the accented a) too?

    hmm, there could be some others but i don't think the á is the problem, more likely punctuation characters.

     

    In my case I really don't care for the music (with my limited testing it appears onl only the Song_Path key is the problem) and as I mention in my subsequent post it the &amp; doesnt hold - I just replaced it with the default which appears to be /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/Frameworks/iLifeSlideshow.framework/Resources /Content/Audio/Classic.m4a

     

    the iphone photo sync was a big loss, the slideshow music I can live without
