    Well, it seems to be working now.  I went into System Preferences and found 3ivx listed under "Other".  I closed System Preferences and did a Spotlight search and discovered I had an Uninstall 3ivx application, so I ran it. I went back into System Preferences and the 3ivx icon under "Other" was gone.  I went into Library/Application Support and could find no other 3ivx files there.  Spotlight found none.  So I went to sync my new iPhone 4S and it found the two pictures I'd tried several unsuccessful times to import, and I said yes to import, and everything went smoothly.


    No rebuilding libraries, no trial alternate library, nothing.  It took two minutes.


    So my only remaining question is why did I have 3ivx on my computer (I must have installed it for some unknown reason) and what might not work properly now that it is gone?


    But regardless, I'm very grateful to your help, everyone.

    Having same problem since I downloaded 9.2 (626)... used your solution and I am all set too!

    Had similar problem after upgrading to iPhoto 11 but for me an error alert showed up when I try to import. After trying several things, I just performed a permissions repair and a disk repair after rebooting with command + R then choosing disk utility.


    All is well now.


    Just FYI

    @SFMacNewb- Removing anything other than 3ivx doesn't make sense.  Didn't know there was an uninstall app.  Nice catch!

    Well, when I first did a Spotlight search for 3ivx I saw the uninstall app.  Being a former (thank goodness) PC user I was used to uninstall apps but they seem to be less common in the Apple world.


    Some folks had talked about rebuilding libraries, etc. and I'm just glad it all seems to be working without having to do that.


    Do you happen to be a Mobile Me person who has made the move to iCloud?  If so, did everything go smoothly?

    Thank you....seriously though, how did you figure this out??

  • Brenda Anderson1 Level 1 (40 points)

    Thanks!  Mine was crashing too, but it now works after uninstalling 3ivx.

    Thank you and all the others who posted the solution to this problem.  iPhoto now working like a dream and so is Photostream.  Awesome help on these forums, appreciate it so very much!

    That seems to have worked! Thank you!!

    Hi Christine,


    I just had to reply and say my name is Kristina Hall, and I've never run into anyone else with such a similar name.


    Glad we got this worked out!  Now if they will only restore the option to choose whether we want to connect to 2G/Edge or 3G, I'll be much happier.  They removed that choice and my battery is sinking fast.  Very fast!

    I was having the same problem after installing i Photo 11 - immediate crash after trying to upload from a file or from my camera. I deleted the 3ivx folder and restarted iphoto and bingo! Thanks Radio

    Simple to just search for uninstall 3ivx in Finder and let it do its thing.  Thank you SO MUCH, I spent WAY too much time on this before I found you.

    Simple, Elegant and FIXED it! Just search for uninstall 3ivx in Finder and Click the Uninstall 3ivx icon. You are DONE. I did not even reboot. Attached iPhone 4s and imported the photos and video with no problems. You saved me hauling my iMac to the Apple Store Genius Bar.  Thank you!!!!!
