Looks like, I found the solution to this OSX 6.0.1 error.
Open the iPhoto library with all of its contents showing.
Select the "iPod Photo Cash" folder and delete it.
Sync again, and the photos appear.

This (deleting iPod Photo Cache) only works once. Upon any subsequent sync, every photo (except for those taken on the phone) and album is removed from the phone.
I've seen this behavior confirmed by other posts as well.
Needs to be fixed.

Unfortunately you are correct. After I've done a sync for the second time, all of the photos were gone again.
For now I've just gone throught the same procedure and once the photos were back on my phone, I disabled the photo sync option. Hopefully Apple will fix this error soon.

where do I find the ipod photo cache folder?

Right click on the iPhoto application, and perform the "Show in Finder" option.
Once in Finder, right click on the folder and do a "Show Package Contents" to open the structure under the iPhoto library. The "iPod Photo Cache" folder is located there.
Another way to find it is to open finder and search for "iPod Photo Cache", and then clikck on the folder once it found it.

Still no fix for this bug from Apple!!!
It has been around for over a month now, and no acknowledgement about this issue.
I cannot sync photos from my iPhoto library, unless I specifically delete the "iPod Photo Cache" and reselect the sync folders from the "Photo" tab.

I am genuinely outraged at this point. I cannot sync my photos with either of my wife's and my two new iPhones (or old ones), or my Apple TV. Neither can my parents watch their photos from iPhoto on their new Apple TV (and I would presume their photo syncing to their iPhones is not working, although that hasn't been checked.
Ferenc, I'm with you - bugs happen, but significant bugs NEED to be fixed in a timely fashion, and this particular bug spans (and destroys) core functionality across many expensive Apple products.
Apple doesn't acknowledge bugs before they're fixed, but I know this one has been reported, so the only answer is fix it ASAP, or I'm going to find myself unable to justify buying anything within the Apple ecosystem again. It all works together, my foot - *none* of it works together, and nobody at the company who took my money seems to care.

I've had the exact same problem since 9.4.2 was released. My workaround was to downgraded back to iPhoto 9.4.1. Even after updating to the latest iTunes version (11.0.1), I reapplied iPhoto 9.4.2. After that, photos disappeared again (showing 0 photos to sync to mobile devices).
This confirms that it's definetely iPhoto 9.4.2 with the bug, and not anything related to an iTunes/iPhoto 10.x or iOS 6.0.1 conflict.
I downgraded again to 9.4.1 and now waiting on APple to figure this out (and fix it) - whenever!
