Thank you so much! I deleted the "Itunescdb" file because i don't have the "ItunesDB" file. When I restarted itunes, my ipod touch 4th gen with iOS 5.0 is successfully syncing!! thanks to all you!
I started to get the error "Itunes cannot read the contents of the iphone. Go to the summary tab in IPhone preferences and click restore to restore this iphone to factory settings" when I deliberately halted the syncing of my iPod because I needed to be somewhere. While it is still syncing, i clicked the "x" button many times and closed iTunes without properly ejecting my iPod.
Lesson Learned:Do not shortcut everything. It messes up things..
Thanks again guys!

so i just had this problem with my Jailbroken iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.1
deleted the iTunesDB and iTunesCDB and the iTunes Music so im back to clean filespace. Synced phone to itunes added about 30 tracks.
next day... i try to sync again... and i get the same error AGAIN. even though i got it working the previous day... do i have to clear the itunesdb and cdb EVERY time i need to sync my phone to itunes? whats the underlying cause? am i doing something wrong?

I have deleted the iTunesCDB file from /private/var/moblie/Media/iTunes_control/iTunes. I have also deleted all of the folders from my music file. iTunes still tells me that i have 8gb of other data. Am I missing a step? Where else would my music data be stored?

i just purchase a second hand iphone 3gs 16gb and i turned it on to follow the set up guide. the first screen is select country the next screen is select region the next enable location services, i did al these then the next step it says to connect to itunes. Then when i try this itunes says "itunes cannot read the contents of the iphone" then it offers you to restore the iphone which i have tried but still not working.
Any ideas please?

^ What is on the screen now? Is it in Recovery Mode ("connect to iTunes" screen or black screen, or normal screen?)
You may have to put the phone in DFU mode to restore.

I FIGURED IT OUT!! i think the issue is your DBversion is set to "4" instead of "5".....that's what my issue was.
Navigate to /system/library/CoreServices and look for a file named "Checkpoint.xml"
Open it and scroll down until you see a key listed <key>DBversion</key>
the value should be an <integer> and will look like <integer>4</integer>
change this value to 5.
Reboot your iDevice and sync as usual.
