Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7 and 10.8), make a new Library in that account, import some shots and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

Ok so I tried a fresh reinstall of iPhoto and the problem continued (same error as above). Then I created a new profile as suggested and run a fresh copy of iPhoto and tried to synch some photos. Again, the same error occured.
It's really odd, but it's the same thread that the error occurs on (the one about URLRequest). I'm using a MacBook Air so am wondering if there might perhaps be a problem with the flash drive. I know normal hard drives can have bad sectors but not sure if the same happens with a flash drive?
Any other thoughts?

How did you reinstall?
To re-install iPhoto
1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
2a: On 10.5: Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows: In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
2c: on 10.7 they're at
A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
If you purchased it on the App Store or have a Recent Mac you can find it in your Purchases List.
