I have a new iPad Mini and whenever I sync it appears to hang at the end with the message "waiting for items to copy" or "Waiting for changes to apply." The majority of the sync appears to have completed. By doing a wireless sync and watching the iPad itself I discover it is 'hanging' while trying to copy Ringtones.

 

I have 4 purchased Ringtones I use on my iPhone. These do not appear in the listing of Ringtones on the iPad. And I have tried unchecking the option to sync Ringtones, but it still hangs. It doesn't always hang on the same Ringtone, either, just one of the four.

 

I don't need the Ringtones on the iPad. How can I get rid of them -- when unchecking the option to sync them appears not to work?

 

I have done a search on this and see that a lot of people have a similar sync problem, but I have yet to find a remedy for my specific issue -- i.e. how to get rid of the Ringtones on the iPad.

 

Thank you.

    Have you heard of manual sync? When you use more then one device, you really do not want to have same stuff. So you go to itunes preferences, devices and disable auto sync. Then you decide what you do or don't sync. It allowes you to sync by individual categories, for example for me books on my ipad and music on ipod. Instructions can be found here

    Unselect everything.

    Click apply.

    go to preferrenses, devices, reset sync history.

    restart computer and ipad.

    Sync again.

    You are welcome.

    If you using icloud for contacts and calendars, do not mess with outlook data settings, please. At some point it will get your data duplicated and more. I spoke to the guy, who had 53 copies of contacts, just cause every time he synced, he checked and forced cloud and outlook at the same time.
