    Ever since either my Windows 7 upgrade, or an iTunes upgrade, or the latest iPhone OS upgrade (I can't remember when it started), sometime in there I began experiencing an up to five minute hang in iTunes at the very end of my iPhone sync. I just learned to live with it (or aborted the sync via iPhone if i had to). But with iPad the sync flows smoothly, no hangs. Since iPad does not have the issue of hanging, can anyone speculate on a fix for me?

    I noticed that my 3GS and iPad both fly when syncing, (iPad is by far the fastest.) ... My wife's 3G is very slow and does hang as well, she doesn't have anything installed that I don't ... I even did a factory restore .. Its very slow!

    Thanks for responding. I should have given more detail such as my phone, perhaps. I have a 3GS also.

    RE: Sync problems with OUTLOOK and Iphone/Itunes -

    Proven Solution:

    There are 2 corrupted files in the new Itunes release and they need to be replaced. See the fix posted to all of this in this thread if you are using 32bit Windows.

    In two seconds everything was fixed. Just download the file he posted, unzip the two files and then simply copy these two files to the c:/windows/system32.
    No more problems and everything syncs correctly with Outlook.

    Hi Guys,i also have the same problem except i have a brand new Sony laptop with Windows 7 64bit,the latest itunes and a 3GS fully updated.Sometimes my itunes hangs as soon as i try to sync sometimes not but it still takes an age,i sync almost every day to get podcasts so ive resorted to an old 2gb iPod nano for now which syncs like a dream bye the way.This pakage cost me well over a 1000 and to say im not happy is an under statement.I have removed and replaced music,podcasts,photos,apps etc,restarted both laptop and phone numerous times,downloaded a new itunes and still it just sits there doing nothing.As the end of the month now approaches ive just realized that i will need to update my calander and this problem becomes even more annoying.
    Any help on this really would make my life sooo much better :-)

    Otherwise I cannot show the link to the Apple forum which contains the solution. This is so odd.
