Why does iTunes keep resyncing my photos every single time I connect to my iMac?

    This is driving me crazy. I have around 5000 photos I keep on my iPad and every time I plug my iPad to the iMac, it seems to erase the photos and resync them which takes nearly an hour.

    All I want to do is add some podcasts to my iPad that I downloaded on the computer and it takes for ever because it wants to resync the photos!

    I don't have a Mac as I use PC but this should also work in your case. When you have your iPad hooked up to the iMac open up iTunes and then click on your iPad listed under devices on the left hand column. Now go to the Photos blade that is towards the top middle of the screen and insure the "Sync Photos From" is not enabled. If this is enabled, then your iMac keeps syncing the photos from the iMac to the iPad and thus causing the long sync process you have had problems with. Keep us posted on the results. Regards.....Doug

    If I uncheck the "sync photos from" box, it will erase all the photos off my iPad and how do I get them back on? I want the photos on the iPad, I just don't want it to resync them every time I hook my iPad up to the iMac to get other stuff.

    By unchecking that box in iTunes it should not erase the photos from the iPad but should prevent iTunes from syncing the photos everts to hook the iPad to your Mac.
