Want to tell Finder to not sync photos while it is stuck synchronizing.

I've had problems synchronizing my IOS devices to my Mac forever, but it's been getting much worse lately.

I've upgraded my iMac and my iPhone in the last couple of months. I try turning them both off, but in the last couple of days I have not had a single time when the finder didn't get stuck with "Syncing Photos (Step 5 of 5) - Waiting for items to copy"

So I decided to try selecting the Photos tab and unchecking the "[ ]Sync photos to your device from: [Photos]".

It unchecks, but when I finally give up and kill the synchronizing, it is checked again.

I'm hoping to somehow uncheck this, synchronize, then check it again to see if that resolves this old, old problem that is now so much worse.

Any suggestions?

Hello,

How long have you left it at that state? It could take a while to finish the sync.

OK...thanks.

Are you connecting them with a cable or syncing them wirelessly?
