Ok so now I'm having a problem with apps only. I can remove them no problem but not add them.
When I add apps and then sync, from the computer they appear to be on the phone. As I look on the phone they are not there.
As soon as the sync is done I get an error message saying those perticular apps can't sync because of an unknown error.
I can't download apps or updates either. When I try to it will go through the download and install process. Followed by a message saying the I can continue the download once I log into iTunes on my computer.
I have attempted this numerous times and keep getting the same problems.
I've checked my iTunes account for any password or account discrepancies on the phone AND computer while on wifi. Nothing is out of order.
Not sure what to do at this point besides a restore...which I don't want to do:/

I assume from your post that you are new to all this - I want to check though before posting an enormous load of text that you don't need!

Basically all I want to do is have a smooth sync with iTunes

When I had this problem, I had to delete the DB and CBD file, then clear out the iTunes_control folders on the iPhone as the music was still there but the phone couldn't read it. Then I had to sync all the music again.
If you want to roll back your firmware that's fairly straightforward - there's guides on this site and others to help you (I've only done it once so can't remember off the top of my head!)

iTunes cannot read contents of iPhone
i am trying to sync my iPhone 3gs with iOS 4.2.1 jailbroken to iTunes 10.1 and receives the same error. difference is my iPhone does not have anything in it but my iTunes does. what happened was i accidentally deleted a cydia file update causing my SIM to be unrecognizable. now it's working fine it's just i can't sync the two. what possibly can be done? thanks in advance.

First off, before anyone starts messing with their device, a little tip: Don't delete, copy then delete. It makes backtracking possible.
So I deleted itunesdb first since i didn't read all the way down. no dice. then i tried itunescdb and it worked, but no music, just a bunch of other in itunes. saw the music was still coded per the itunes way and figured i would put the original itunescbd back and see if i could do something different to reset the connection. well it worked and i was able to sync and get all my music.
So, delete itunescbd, sync, then replace the new itunescdb that was made during the sync with the previously bad one. It worked for me, i hope it works for you.
Oh, the FTV player is an ad on the i-funbox site. Personally I found it misleading as well and clicked that. Remember, think before you click, read before you click, then think again.

I'm using an iPhone 3GS with iOS 5. I originally got the "cannot read the contents" message so I followed your instructions and deleted the files. Now I can't sync at all. iTunes gives me a message of "phone could not be synced because sync session failed to start.
Oh, by the way, yes I'm freaking out...
Apple support advised me to restore the phone, big surprise, all I did was remove most of the apps and such off my phone.
I have restored a few times, restarted iTunes with phone connected, restarted iTunes without phone, restarted phone both connected and not, removed the iTunesCDB a few times.
None of it has worked out.
Pretty pretty please help this noob.

FYI, this worked for me. I had not synced my phone in quite some time otherwise I would likely just restore to iOS 5.0.
I deleted iTunesCDB from /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes/. I used iFile to do it directly on my iPhone. I had been able to view all the music on my phone previous to this. I also deleted all the folders under Music (F00 through F49). This got rid of most of the Other that iTunes was showing.
I am currently re-syncing my phone.
iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) running iOS 4.1 Jailbroken
iTunes 10.5.0.142 (latest version as of October 30, 2011)
