I've been dealing with this all evening.
Everytime I plug my phone in, the sync gets to step 6 and then that error as mentioned above pops up.
My system: Win7x64 My device: iPhone5
This problem only started today.
I've scoured the internet and have tried all these solutions with no progress:
1. Deleted old backups
2. Deleted the Lockdown folder
3. Reinstalled iTunes
4. Changed the time zone
5. Running as Administrator
To be quite honest I can't even remember everything I've tried and I am not just incredibly frustrated.
Could anyone lend a hand? I honestly Don't know what the issue could be. I also tried deleting apps from the phone, removing all my podcasts, pictures, etc.
Still that flippin' error message comes up.
Anything. Before I go crazy and reformat my computer.
