Hi :)

I experienced that after updating apps or when adding new apps, they often can't be applied and more worse, since I updated from iOS 5.0.1 to 5.1, most of the pro-audio apps that were ok before, can't be applied anymore. FWIW iBooks is one of those borked apps, I dunno if it's because I updated iOS or iBooks.

Check iBooks > Apply >

"Syncing "Administrator's iPad" (Step 4 of 4)
Copying 1 of 1: iBooks"

Very soon nothing happens anymore and after a while

"Syncing "Administrator's iPad"
Cancelling sync"

is displayed.

I'm running iTunes on Windows XP pro SP 2 on Linux VirtualBox.
