It works again!

Maybe six months ago, iTunes refused to sync photos to my iPod with an "error -50." Because I'd been having other problems with my iPod at the time, I gave up. But someone's hint gave me the solution.

Go to the terminal, type "xmllint ", and drag the file called "AlbumData.xml" inside your iPhoto library to the terminal window. Press enter, and it will hopefully spit out a few lines of text that say it had an error. It might be an album name or a comment in your photos (it was the latter in my case). Go to iPhoto, search for that comment, select all and delete in the comment box, and retype it. Quit iPhoto, and hopefully iTunes will start working again.
