I originally posted this in iPhone section, but when I discovered the second problem I thought I should put it over here as it seems to be a bug with the new iPhoto. Anyone else having these problems? Apple? A little help?



I just installed iLife '09 - hurray! but...

I plugged my iPhone in to sync and got the message:

"The iPhone cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (-50)."

So I hit the "Restore" button in iTunes. Same problem.

I then noticed as I was clicking trough the tabs of my iPhone in iTunes that my photo albums had disappeared from the photos tab. So I tried deselecting the "Sync photos from iPhoto" box, hit Sync again and what do you know, no more unknown error.

So I think there may be a bit of an iPhoto '09 - iTunes - iPhone sync bug.


Similar problem syncing with Apple TV now too:

"iTunes cannot sync photos to the Apple TV because of a problem on your computer. An unknown error occurred (-50)."

I think I'll post these problems in the iPhoto section as that seems more and more likely to be the culprit.

iMac, Macbook Air, iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
