    Having the same problem. Called Apple and they said to uninstall and reinstall iTunes. Apparently there is a specific order in which to uninstall 6 programs and he is emailing me that. If it works i will let you know.

    Apparently not if you tell it not to sync when you reconnect the device. He said that once you reconnect you tell it not to sync and then you right click on "Bob's iPhone" or whetever and it has the option to restore from backup and he says it will pick up where it left off. I am on Windows XP so you may need to do something else.
