I have about 20GB of photos (from my external hard drive) to sync with my ipod. The first sync tooks 11 hours to copy everything over. That makes sense to me as this is actually moving all of this data.
My issue is that now when i sync it (no new pictures added or deleted) it sits on this view
for over 20 minutes (where it say's Step 7 or 8 - Importing Photos). Why does itunes take so long to sync my photos where there is nothing new to sync? Shouldn't this just be some sync algorithm to easily see that nothing has changed and just move on?
Also, is there anyway to "debug" what is taking so long or workaround to try to optimize taking so long?
