IPhone Sync stuck at step 2: Backup.. After updating itunes to 10.6.1

I have a iPhone 4 for over a year now and have never had ne problems. But after the last update of itunes to v10.6.1.7 each time I sync my phone with my pc the sync process hangs on step 2: backup.
I have read a lot of forums and have tried everything. i have even tried formatting my pc and install everything from scratch but nothing seems to work.
PLS HELP..

Since you had to force end process whilst backing up, I would think your backup folder and files might be corrupted.
Go to this location to delete your backup folder (folder name contains 40alpha numerics e.g.
7c67e6a6537b50de27c08fdc8c68d8dc302e04ff)
Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
Do a netsh winsock reset again. After restarting windows, sync again.  Bear in mind it's a new backup so the backup process may take a longer time.  So be patient and let it run for hours and see it will work this time.

    iPhone sync stuck at Step 5 of 5 waiting for the changes to be applied

    For me it was stuck. So with the iphone/pad etc plugged in I was having the failings at the last step.
    I got it to work by unticking "Sync this ****** over wifi" and onnly ticking"manually manage music and videos"
    Maybe it gets confussed and I thought I was managing it anyway.
    Anyway - that worked for me, literally did the ticks. Off it goes, now adding 1500+ tunes

    i have bought 4 new songs on my ipod touch from the itunes app, then i tried to sync my iod to my laptop after updating itunes to the latest version. My ipod will now no longer sync, what should i do?

    - Try moving the backup file to a safe location so iTunes has to create an entire new one.. It is locate here and you may have to have show hiddn files turned on.
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    - Also try here assuming a PC. The link provides a link for XP.

  • Iphone sync stuck on step 1

    I have an iPhone 4 with software version 4.3.5 and iTunes Vesrion 10.5. Im aslo running Windows 7
    When I updates iTunes to this version my phone would no longer sync. It just gets stuck at step 1 or 5 and never moves from there.
    Any help would be most appreciated
    Thanks

    Finally - after much stress and many attempts I finally got it to work by using a combination of the following things together:
    1.     Unplugging my computer from the network
    2.     Changing the USB port the iPhone was plugged into
    3.     Disabling windows firewall and antivirus/sypware
    4.     Following these instructions:
    - Quit iTunes.
    - Start an elevated command prompt (Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right Click "Command Prompt" -> "Run as Administrator")
    - Once in the command prompt, type "netsh winsock reset" and hit ENTER.
    - Reboot your machine
    - Restart iTunes.
    Thanks for everyone for their help

  • Cannot backup and sync after updated iTunes

    Cannot backup and sync after updated iTunes. Have tried to hard reset iPhone (all data lost- sad) and reinstalled iTunes. Still cannot work.

    It sounds like you bough the song only, not the song and the ringtone.
    Ringtones via itunes are available in the U.S. only.
    In the U.S. to make a ringtone you:
    Buy the song with a bell - 99 cents
    Find the song in your library and click the bell
    This bring up the editor.
    You edit the song to the portion you want.
    Then click buy to purchase the ringtone - another 99 cents.
    Then it shows up in ringtones and you can sync.
    As I said, this method of creating ringtones is available in the U.S. only.
    There are, however, many ways to make ringtones:

  • Unable to restore backup after updating iphone 4, because "not enough free space"

    I updated my iphone 4 to v7 via itunes (v12), and in doing so, my camera roll was erased as were most of my calendar events.  I am trying to restore the backup that I created just before updating, but I get an error message in itunes that says "itunes could not restore the iphone" because "not enough free space".  There is 2.5gb free on my iphone, and I created the backup just before updating so there should be plenty of room.  Does anyone know how to get the iphone to restore and/or how to put my pics & calendar back?  itunes hangs up at the end while syncing too...

    hello again, don't post twice the same question, it won't be answered faster.

    my iphone 5 has restored to an old backup after updating to ios 7 is there any way of getting my stuff back as this has now become the most recent back up?
    also since the update it keeps resetting itself? i had a lot of stuff on there that i really wanted and alot of important info lost? please help!!

    You might be able to remove the recent backup from the backups folder and the old one should be usable at that point
    USE EXTREAME CAUTION WHEN ACCESS THE FILES AND DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Note: The "~" represents your Home folder. If you don't see Library in your home folder, Option-click the Go menu.
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Note: To quickly access the Application Data folder, click Start, and choose Run. Type %appdata% and click OK.
    Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

  • ITunes creates corrupted backup after updating to iOS 8.3

    So this happened right after I updated my iPhone 5s to iOS 8.3.
    I got an "iTunes could not backup the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone" error.
    I've followed instructions to update iTunes, restart the program, computer, and phone.
    Delete backups.
    I've tried backing up on my 2nd computer with the same exact error.
    None of it works.
    iTunes DOES make a backup. It says it was created 12/31/2000 at 6pm. However if I navigate to the folder in AppData it says it was created at the proper time on my computer's clock. I'm too afraid to restore that backup since my phone has no "real" backup now.
    I would call Apple support but they want to charge me $30 for one session.
    I've been avoiding restoring my phone because I don't want to spend the time to get all my apps and photos and music back onto the phone.
    So I'm left with 2 options.
    Restore the iPhone and waste a good hour of my time reinstalling everything.
    Or waiting for the next 8.x iOS update and hope that fixes the issue.
    Unless someone here can think of a 3rd option.
