    It's only happened twice, so it's hard to know the cause.
    But both occurrences were _after_ the iOS 5 / iTunes 10.5
    upgrade.

    During sync, in "step 5 of 5" the second status line said
    "waiting for items to copy" for about an hour. Then I clicked
    the little 'x' and it said "canceling sync" for about an hour.

    Quit iTunes, launched again, and sync appeared to work.

    That was a WiFi sync to an original iPad.

    With the iPhone4 today, it was plugged in and did the
    same thing first pass. But after relaunch, it hung
    with

    Step 5 of 5
    Waiting for changes to be applied.

  2. Yo Wes,

    That's how my original iPad started dying.

    If the file system goes to hell (and you can't find books or tunes),
    and the synchs can no longer keep track of what files are on the iPad
    (randomly updating books and music), and iTunes shows wildly varying
    storage details between synchs … its arse may be grass.

    Of course it may all be a software fault that will be remedied with a
    new version of IOS or iTunes - but as I said before, on USENET noise
    tends to drown out information. (If so my niece and nephew will be
    delighted … given that I gave it to them after I restored about 90% of
    its functionality.)

    I managed to get all my Apps (350 or so) back up and working on the
    puppy, but the books and music never came back - hence my new iPad.

    Hope you have more luck ...

    Well, it's possible but unlikely that a one-year-old iPad 1 and a
    one-month-old iPhone 4 would get the same hardware failure the same week
    that I updated iTunes and IOS.
