Since updating my iPad to iOS 6 and updating iPhoto to 9.4, I have been receiving the error The iPad <name of my iPad> cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (1156).


  1. My photo's won't sync (turned off syncing for all photo's to see if that works but when on shows .98 gigs)
  2. My video's won't sync (status bar shows 13.13 gigs)
  3. My audio won't sync (status bar shows 5.4 gigs)
  4. Apps' don't show up under the status bar unless I hit the sync button and then they show up and then disappear. They are on iPad.
  5. I get a yellow bar with designated as "Other" that take up about 8.8 gigs


Any ideas how to fix this problem or what that code is?


A couple things that I should mention:

The "Other" 8.8 gigs on iTunes display mirrors that Settings > General > Usage > section.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

iPad 2, iOS 6
