iPad syncing issue unknown error occurred -39

Recently I started to have some problems syncing my iPad.  Whenever it got to the last phase of the syncing, the photos, when it would say deleting photos it would hang and I would get the error:

Unknown error occurred -39

Then it would stop, this was becoming very frustrating.   I thought there may be a problem with my iPhoto Library but all my photos seemed ok, they would sync to my apple tv and my iPhone.

I had read that I would need to go to the Photo's tab in iTunes untick the box to sync photos, let iTunes delete them from the device then add them back on.  At first I was thinking that I did not want to do this, as I sync all my photos on my iPad (just over 11,000) I know this would take HOURS to sync, so I thought I would try a couple of things first.

First I tried using Onyx to clear out all of my caches to see if there may of been a problem with the cache, this did not resolve the issue.  Next I tried to use some of the options available to you when you hold down Option+Command while clicking on the iPhoto icon.  This options I chose were:

This also did not resolve my issue, in the end I admitted defeat and carried out the original steps.  I went to the photos tab, removed the tick on the checkbox to not sync the photos.  After I clicked apply iTunes then deleted all the photos from the iPad.  Once complete, I placed a tick back into the box but this time just selected a few choice albums to sync over.

If anyone does know of a beter way to resolve this issue, then please feel free to get in touch.
