Cannot sync photos w/iTunes to iPad (PC)
I’ve been syncing photos to my iPad and iPhone without trouble for years now, and as a passionate photographer, I’ve got a LOT of photos and a lot of albums. I have always used iTunes to do this and do not use iCloud for my photos.
I think my issue started with the last iTunes PC update a few weeks ago. I’d added new photos to several albums, did my sync without any apparent problem but then I noticed that the new photos were NOT in the albums on the iPad. I double-checked the folders on the PC and the images were there.
I re-did the sync several times without ever having the new photos transfer to the iPad. (I’m afraid to sync my iPhone.)
Searching all over for a solution I found that deleting the iPod Photo Cache was often recommended as the solution (seems several people are having the problem since the last iTunes update) so I did that.
When I re-sync’d I LOST all the photos on the iPad and none of the photos on the PC transferred to the iPad. All my (one-level deep) photos folders are intact, with all the photos on the PC but I can’t get them into the iPad.
I probably shouldn’t have deleted the iPod Photo Cache folder.
Anyone else here having the problem? Anyone know of a solution?
(IPad Pro 10.5 with latest iOS, 512gb, and PC with latest iTunes.)
Thanks for any help.
