I purchased a new iPhone, but when I tried to sync my old iPhone to my new iPhone it kept crashing my system (laptop would shut down – not blue screen, just turn off).  The event logs showed nothing…  Below is what I tried:

  1. Reinstalled iTunes
  2. Changed USB ports I was plugged into
  3. Changed cables I used to connect my iPhone to my laptop
  4. Restored iPhone to factory default

Then I started synching only pieces at a time and found that it only crashed my laptop when I tried to sync photos…

Not sure exactly which photo or why the sync of photos caused the crash – I have tried only synching a few photos and did not have a problem, but I have not synced all photos since.
