    Where is this option? I'd like to give it a try.

  • solarpoweredbee Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    In iTunes on my PC I went in to Preferences then selected the Device tab. At the bottom there is a button called "Reset Sync History"

     

    btw I am using iTunes 11.1.5.5

     

    Hope this helps?

    Is that in Windows or OSX? I don't see it under OSX, for me the Devices tab just has a list of device backups, an option to prevent automatic syncing and a button to forget iTunes remotes.

    I'm on Windows. My screen looks exactly the same except right underneath where it says "Forget all remotes" I have another section with a button that says "Reset Sync History".

     

    Why would the different OSes have different settings?

    I just found this

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1627

     

    Pretty much saying this (for Leopard)...

     

    1. Open iSync.
    2. Choose iSync > Preferences.
    3. Click Reset Sync History.

     

    Does it help? (sorry I really don't know anything about OSX so apologies if you have already tried this)

    I think OSX eventually wiped out this option.  Figures.

     

    Meantime, here's my own update: I had a problematic sync that went too long while trying to add a single 1GB movie.

     

    Luckily, I'd been syncing an earlier phone with an identical setup, so I took a few hours and restored the current phone from the earlier phone's backup.

     

    So the solution seems to be: prepare for the worst.

    Ah cheers, gave it a quick try and nothing. There's actually no way of doing this in Mavericks too! Apparently there's no need, but considering it fixed it for you I think the need might be returning!

    I've had problems with this since october last year. I think i've made some headway with this. At some point today i randomly had a clean sync out of the blue. I deleted a few of my unwanted videos to save space. Tried syncing again and nada. 'Waiting for changes to be applied'. After many restarts of my phone and itunes and a browse on other topics of this nature someone suggested the 'File > sync' and i remembered about transferring purchases. So i stopped my phone from syncing and went up to file, then device and transfer purchase history. Soon as i clicked that my songs started to sync. I think it has something to do with accounts on the purchased songs.

     

    Hope this helps anyone!

    I've tried several of the strategies suggested in these posts. None of them worked. I am running on a PC laptop and I have no videos or photos attached to my iphone 4s; it's songs and audiobooks only. What finally worked for me is I manually scrolled through the thousands of songs and found two items that had ! next to them, signifying that the original file could not be located or whatever. I deleted those two items. I synched my phone and it updated without stalling for the first time in about three months.

  • jimmirock Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Aaaand now it's affecting a device it previously didn't. Up until this most recent sync one of my iPads (with no music or photos) would sync just fine.

     

    Bugger.

  • ExTech Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Any other media on the new device?  Movies maybe?

     

    Seems to be a media problem for most of us; either a bad file or bad playlist

     

    I'm chugging along, with the occasional long sync but no rampant disabling of music already loaded

     

    A big part though is my switch to iCloud, which has lowered my need to sync as often

    I just had the same problem. The only thing that fixed it, on my machine, was to reset my iPod Touch, and restore from the backup on my iMac. However, "waiting for changes to be applied" can refer to just about anything.

  • jimmirock Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I use it primarly for photos, apps and browsing. No music or video content at all. I tried to remove all my photos but since the sync was taking so long and iOS cannot remove photos like it can with music, I had to load up one of those iOS device browsers and manually remove the photo directories. I haven't tried a sync since.

     

    (I have noticed that the latest iTunes update has sped up the time it took for my iTunes library to be 'converted' when it booted up, since I use the exact same library for both OSX and Windows. So it appears they are trying to fix some of the other recently introduced problems! Now for this one...)

    You might be able to find out what it's stuck on by going into Settings>General>Wifi Sync. Even when using a wired USB connection you can see what file it's currently transferring.

  • poikkeus1 Level 4 Level 4 (1,150 points)

    You're so right. As it happens, there was a problem with my iTunes library. Every iTunes library is a little different, so you just have to go hunting until you find the culprit. Restoring iTunes takes a while, but it fixes everything - or it should.
