Ipod updating library takes forever

I don't believe it repairs anything on the device as such.

You could try deleting old backups if you feel this message is taking too long to disappear.

My timing shows the interrupted recovery to take twice the time of a normal sync completion but usually less than a minute either way.

I think it's part of the backup process i Tunes does for your i Pod/i Phone.

I would terminate the sync and use Image Capture to retrieve the photos.

You have a much faster import to get them to a folder and then you can also delete them and perhaps isolate one bad photo that hangs or just break up the transfer.

I think the coordination between i Photo 9.5 and i Tunes may be buggy.

One issue is that when I plug it in, i Photo opens to copy photos off.

Your computer i Tunes is waiting for the i Phone to "fix itself" and clean up from the interrupted sync.

The mobile i Tunes database (and I'm sure several others) will need to be rebuilt to clean up after an interrupted sync.

Tried all the other things like deleting the i Pod cache folder in the Pictures folder, rebuild the i Photo Database and all.

These did not work and i Tunes stranded on the "Importing Photos" step. I had to change to the ~/Pictures/i Photo Library directory and then use the following command to remove the cache: rm -r i Pod\ Photo\ Cache/ Use the tab expansion feature of the shell to get the above command line quickly by typing rm -r i P [tab] to expand the command line.

Once you have all the photos off, you could delete a problem photo or two or just clean up the camera roll and try syncing again in i Tunes.
