I'm having a problem with iTunes where syncing my iPhone ends up seeming to basically finish, but it says "Waiting for items to copy" after everything else, and just stays there for... well, a very long time, if I let it. I'm not sure this is always the case, but at the moment, it's doing this while "Syncing Genius Data to [my iPhone] (Step 8 of 8)".
If I click the little x in iTunes, it then gets stuck on "Canceling sync", for an equally indefinite sort of period.
If I simply unplug the phone, everything seems to be synced and happy, but the next time I sync, it happens again.
I presume this is a bug of some sort on Apple's part, but it seems like people have found workarounds. I'm just having trouble tracking one down that
- is well described enough that I can actually follow it
- has enough detail that I can do it without losing data, i.e. tells me path names that I might want to copy first, or the like, before telling me to remove something. Note: see also the first point — I can't remove it if it's telling me to remove something that I don't know where it is!, and
- otherwise seems sane
