Despite having ticked the “sync only selected playlists”, “manage music manually” and “do not auto sync when iPhone is connected” options, iTunes is saying that I have 12.5 GB of music to download, which takes forever and leads to the error message “cannot sync over capacity” (besides not being wanted on my iPhone).
I only have 2 small capacity music playlists selected for sync. Only 3 apps running, no photos, no videos, no email & only a small address book. Are the 12.5GB of music iTunes wants to sync? How do I stop this going onto my iPhone?
I did a backup & restore prior to downloading version 6 of iOS to try & get rid of the issue, but the error persists. I do not want to do a wipe clean and full restore if possible – are there other solutions?
