    Hello Guys,

    My iOS is updated (iOS 5 Beta 6), and my iTunes is too updated (iTunes 5 Beta 60).

    I can't sync my device with iTunes.

     

    All stuff is updates... What can i do?

     

    -- This make me remember when i used Windows --

  • janhei77 Level 1 Level 1

    my solution was:

     

    sudo killall iTunes
    sudo killall iTunesHelper
    sudo rm -rf /Applications/iTunes.app
    sudo rm -rf ~/Library/iTunes
    sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions/AppleMobileDevice.kext
    sudo rm /Library/Receipts/AppleMobileDeviceSupport.pkg
    sudo rm /Library/Receipts/*iTunes*.pkg
    sudo rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.eq.plist
    sudo rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.plist
    sudo rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunesHelper.plist
    sudo rm -rf /Library/iTunes
    sudo rm ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/com.apple.iTunes.*

     

    and then reinstall itunes

  • Jorge Flor Level 1 Level 1

    Yeah..

    The solution is install some version beta of iOS on iTunes.

     

    Thanks for all!

    I have this on my iPad2, using iTunes in a Windows 7 VM. It appears to have fully upgraded the iPad to iOS5, everything appears to be there, but it always says "The iPad can't by synced because the sync session failed to complete". I also notice that my "other" data usage went from near zero to 17G or something like that. So something is stuck on the iPad....

  • michaelfromeast windsor Level 1 Level 1

    Sorry, I was on the wrong thread, my error was "failed to finish". But the resolution there might be of help here. In iTunes, go in and disable photo syncing and perhaps ringtones, etc. Then sync, then re-enable them again. It fixed the problem I had. Good luck.

    I had the same problem.. all i did was backed up my phone, then restored it. everything is back on my phone and it is syncing everything now... so far so good.

  • paddyfromcastlederg Level 1 Level 1

    I had this problem, "

    The iPhone could not be synced because the sync session failed to finish". All i had to do was verify my itunes account via email and tht sorted the sync process. I still lost all my games and most apps :/

    Hi!

     

    Did you try redownloading your  iTunes purchased apps?

    As far as I know, whenever you buy anything from them, it's always there.

     

    I've had this happen to me when I changed computers and re-synced on a new notebook and lost my apps. Just go here and try it:

  • scouserr Level 1 Level 1

    Thanks all.

    Not sure how but it's all okay now

  • Madator Level 1 Level 1

    I got same message when trying to update my 3g to a iphone 4. I simply added a 1 to the Iphone name or change name completely and then sync worked.

    could you show me the steps . how fix this error

     

    The iPhone "..." could not be synced because the sync session failed to start

     

    Best Regards

    I had all kinds of new and interesting things happening to my music, ringtones and photos with this. While the phone was still misbehaving, I set my synch preferences (photos, podcasts, music etc .) to how I wanted them to be. I then tried to synch. Of course, I had the same annoying message but the phone had backed up. I then restored my phone to factory settings (via iTunes). When prompted to restore from the recent backup, I went ahead. It synched perfectly and has done so ever since. I can't explain this but I am glad that the equivalent of 'turn it off and on again' seems to have worked. Good luck.
