I have a large collection of photographs and I want to synchronize a selection of albums, totally around 2500 photos, ranging in file size from 400KB to 7MB, with most of them around 5MB-6MB. Only about 1300 synchronize.

I have unselected photo syncing in iTunes and synced, then wiped the iPod Cache folder from my desktop's disk and tried again, but the problem remains. I suspect file size, but the chap at the Apple store didn't think that was a problem. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

are you sure there is enough room for them all? My 8Gb CF card for camera will take around 400 photos at 7-9MB. if you have a 16GB iPad you will not have enough room for all those photos – Graeme Hutchison Mar 21 '12 at 20:13
They are 10.5GB, over 2776 files, so I guess they average just under 4 MB. It's a 32GB iPad, and there's plenty of room. – silves89 Mar 22 '12 at 19:32
