With the latest upgrade to OSX 6.0.1 my sync deleted all of the photos from my iPhone and it no longer syncs any of the selected albums or events from iPhoto.  I have all of the latest versions of all software installed for all of my applications.

I've tried unchecking the "Sync Photos from (iPhoto)" and many other options, and then switching them on again, yet there are no photos synced to the iPhone.  I am experiencing this issue with the latest OSX installation.  Any suggestions on how to get my photos back on my iPhone?

    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.

    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!
