iphone could not be synced because the sync session failed to start: Apple Support Communities

> Just made one very simple move without having to restore iPhone or reinstall iTunes..

> Follow that link to restart (or if necessary) reinstall your Apple mobile device support.

> In my case, Leave iPhone connected all the way. I first exit iTunes. Then i stopped the Apple Mobile device support (by following a part on that link above in step 1) which Effectively made my iPhone undetectable on itunes but discoverable by windows as a ‘camera device’. Then while device is still connected, i started the Apple mobile dev support again. Now i open itunes and there my iPhone re-appears.

> 2nd step: After your iphone re-appears on iTunes, press Sync and all is well…

> P.S, Mine is iPhone 4 running on iOS 5, iTunes 10.5, Windows 7..
