I updated my itunes to work with the new IOS7 and all of sudden, ever i device I own will no longer work with itunes. 


Every device, my ipad, my iphone, my wifes iPhone, my kids iPads, all say "iTunes could not connect to this iPad (or iPhone if it's a phone, etc).  Could not allocate a resource. 


I'm not sure what's causing it and I'm not finding any posting while searching google, etc, for info about this.  Most of the postings are back from 2012 with nothing new.  I tried the 2012 suggestions and that did not fix anything.  At this moment, I have a ton of i devices that can't add music or anything to them as they are not seen by iTunes either directly connected to the computer or when on the same wireless network and connected to 110v power.


I do see some other posts on the apple support pages but the only solution seems to be deleting the files in the lockdown folder and that does not resolve the issue for me.


If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion
