    My iTouch can't sync photos (maybe a result of jailbreak) and iTunes gives an error message when I try. It syncs everything else fine, but if I enable syncing of photos, then I get the following error message:

    "The x iPod can not be synced. The required file can not be found."

    Also, I can't find a folder that would contain the photos, but I can find all of the other folders for other applications. They are at /private/var/root/Media. Does anyone know where the photos folder should be and what it is named. My theory is that it disappered and maybe recreating it will again enable syncing.

    That location makes sense. I will try adding the folder and then syncing while crossing my fingers. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks for the help but unfortunately that did not work (maybe it is not the problem), it still gives the same error message. Can fatfrank or anyone SSH into their iTouch and figure out the name and location of the Photos folder and see if it is in Media, and it is named Photos or something else?
