    hey,
    I used to have troubles synchronizing my photos through itunes too. Well what i’ve found out is i have to delete the ipod cache folder each time i want to sync new albums. Its tedious, but nonetheless works.

    I’m having the same problem you are and no one seems to be talking about this. I don’t like your solution. If i have a DIR with 50 million pictures in it and I just pick a SUB DIR with 5 photos in it, those should sync in seconds. Mine is taking hours every single time i sync. It just sits there saying “Importing Photos” for ever. Apple needs to fix this issue!

    BTW, which version of iTunes are you using? It seems that the latest version syncs much faster than iTunes 9.x which was when I was writing this article. Also, I’ve since moved on over to the Mac platform and never have this problem any longer.

Let me know what you think...
