I upgraded my iTunes from 8.1.1 to 8.2 yesterday, and immediately iTunes removed all my photos that I synced from iPhoto.

I cannot get it to sync again. To troubleshoot the problem, I have tried:
• unchecking "Sync photos from:", sync it, checking it again, and syncing again
• syncing a folder of nine photos

Neither worked. There is simply no way I can get my iPhone to sync photos anymore. I haven't tried a full iPhone reset because I'm not sure what that might do to the data.

I am using iTunes 8.2 on Mac OS X 10.5.7 with all patches installed. My MacBook Pro is a first-generation MacBook Pro and my iPhone is the second generation (3G) iPhone with 8GB of storage.

By the way, iTunes appears to successfully create iPod Photo Cache folders – it is just not syncing, and it isn't a disk space issue either.

After doing a synch with iTunes, I deleted my entire DCIM folder with PhoneView.

I then snapped a picture or two before re-synching to iTunes. This solved the problem.

Deleting the DCIM folder and forcing it and its contents to be re-created causes all the corrupted files to be re-created all clean, nice, and uncorrupted.
