I have been getting the error from iTunes +"The iPod cannot be synced. The required file cannot be found".+

I have tried restoring the iPod - that does not work.
I have used disc utility to verify disk and repair permissions.

Everything syncs fine on the iPod Touch except for the photos from iPhoto - they will not sync.

This just started up recently, and had left me with a partial picture library on my until I did a restore, and now I have nothing.

Before the restore, I did try unchecking sync iphoto - and the error went away - once re-checked the error returned. Hence how I am sure it's iPhoto.

After the restore I did the same thing - same results.

It worked fine until recently.

Please help.

Thanks!

    This seems to have solved it.

    to fix the iphone / ipod cannot be synced. The missing file cannot be found, simply do the folowing.

    1) close iphoto and itunes
    2) find the iphoto library in finder, most probably located in your users folder under pictures.
    3) right click on iphoto library (might be named diferently) and choose show package contents
    4) delete the folder caches and ipod photo cache.
    5) restart iphoto
    6) restart itunes
    if itunes asks that the library is linked with another ipod, say yes to the warning to re sync with your ipod/ iphone

    FOR WINDOWS, GOTO THE ITUNES FOLDER LOCATED IN YOUR MY MUSIC , AND DELETE THE ITUNES FOLDER
