I recently reinstalled my MacBook from a time machine backup (because I installed an SSD) [*]. Now syncing my iPhone via iTunes doesn't seem to work anymore:
At first, it displayed "over capacity" by 3.4 GB (which makes no sense, as I haven't added anything)
Then, after deleting several apps from my iPhone, the "over capacity" message is gone, but syncing doesn't work:
- At first, it appears to work normally, and the capacity bar starts to fill up green on the left (green = apps)
- Then, after it finishes, the capacity bar turns yellow:
- I'm trying to sync a few files (just one song, and a few books), but they all keep the sync icon and are grayed out I can't access the files on my iPhone.
Also, my iPhone seems to believe that the last backup to my computer was in September (according to Settings > General > iTunes Wi-Fi Sync), whereas iTunes says, that the last backup was today.
How can I make the setup work again? I tried enabling/disabling "Manually manage music and videos" and "Sync only checked songs and videos", as well as "Sync Apps" etc.
Info: Mac OS X 10.6.8, iOS 5.1.1, not using iCloud - only backing up to this mac.
