“Some of your photos were not copied because they cannot be displayed on your iPod”. If you have encountered this kind of error, and you’re here looking for help, or a solution of how to fix it, thank Google, you’re in the right place.
I encountered this error while synchronizing some of my JPEG images from my laptop to my iPod. After iTunes optimized the images to my iPod Nano 3rd Gen, a sudden error prompted from iTunes, and it states that “Some of your photos, including the photo ___.jpg, were not copied to the iPod ____, because they cannot be displayed on your iPod. I tried to re-sync it again, but still encountered the same error. I googled about this error, hoping that there’s a fix, or someone out there encountered the same error as I did. Luckily, I found lots of forum threads regarding this Photo Sync error. I read the thread posts, and found out that there are JPEG images that are not compatible with iPod.
iTunes do not like a JPEG image with an embedded color profile, that’s what I found in one of the threads of Apple Support Forums. One of the users suggested to use Adobe Lightroom in exporting images, because it’s iTunes-compatible. I also found out that JPEG images saved from Photoshop are not compatible with iTunes, only some, but not all (Weird eh?). Try saving JPEG images from Photoshop, other images will not be synchronized properly. I also tried saving and resizing images on Microsoft Picture Manager, but still, I have no luck.
Finally, I tried opening JPEG images using Paintbrush, renamed it, and save it as JPEG. Opened iTunes, and tried to synchronize my photos again. Guess what? It was properly synchronized into my iPod! Hehehe… That’s how I fixed this Photo Sync error. If you encountered this error, and you have a much better way of how to fix it, kindly leave me a comment on this post. Thanks! 🙂
