I received the above message (without the [solved], funnily enough) this evening when plugging my iPhone into my laptop. I think I may have disconnected mid-sync. last time I connected the two, so my bad.
I was worried. So I did some research. And I solved the problem thus:
- Downloaded i-FunBox which gives you control of the iPhone’s file system from your computer
- Searched the file system for a file entitled iTunesDB. It appeared as 0 bytes and resides in a folder ending iTunes_Control\iTunes
- Delete it
- Disconnected the iPhone from the PC
Bob was indeed my uncle and the job was a goodun. This was the main source of my research. Thank you.
