I updated to iTunes 10.3 and tried to sync my iPhone without compatibility mode. Same problem. A few days later, I couldn't get my iPhone to work even in compatibility mode. I then synced my iPad2 and tried the iPhone after it. It worked then. I'm planning on upgrading to the iPhone 5 when it comes out. Hopefully it won't have the same problem.

A further weirdness is that my playlist won't update. In step 4 of the sync, I see the message that it is analyzing what tracks to sync, but then doesn't sync anything.

Windows 7 Pro x64
Me too

Win7 Pro x64, iTunes bugs out and freezes and error 6 trying to restore after SP1 install.

I have uninstalled SP1, and the problems have all gone away.

Now I'm waiting for Apple to get their house in order. This problem has been around for months now without any response from Apple, which is a seriously lame service IMHO.

Windows 7 64-bit

I rely upon my computer for everything from work to entertainment. If my iTunes goes, then I am without music, as I am professional musician this has some import to me.

I just installed SP1 and my iTunes is now silent. Working in the software industry, I understand that updates present compatibility problems all the time. It doesn't make it any less annoying when a piece of software I use regularly suddenly stops because of an update.

Windows 7 Pro x64
Older, greyer and still having the same SP1 problem


I installed iOS5, iTunes 10.5 and then re-installed the dreaded SP1 (64 bit).

The problem is still there for me: the iPod Touch 4 registers as "corrupt", cannot be restored (I have to restore it on my XP laptop).

Tried compatibility mode (no luck) and checked USB drivers (all registering OK).

Uninstall SP1 and it starts working fine again.

Does anyone have any good news about solving this?

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

speedy1971's right, itunes does have that kind of issues even with win 7 sp0.
it happens even with my ipod shuffle.

But itunes to freeze for 30mins? I'd say itunes is sumhow the cause or the major contributor to the problem. Try to maybe, downgrade itunes or reinstall..

Or try to turn off the usb power management.
Click Start-> TYPE "DEVMGMT.msc" (without quotes) then press enter to execute device manager. Then find USB ROOT HUB and right click each entry. Then select Properties and UNTICK "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."

then, reboot and try syncing again.
