I have 3 iOS devices - an iphone 4 for personal use, iphone 4S for business use, and an iPad 2 for business use.  I upgraded all of them at the same time to iOS 5.1, and now am unable to sync any of them with iTunes.  In all cases, I am trying to since to a mac running Lion (different machines for the business devices and personal though).  How do I resolve this? I've tried restoring the devices, restarting the devices, and other obvious things.  iTunes is fully up to date.  ...|sync-session-failed-start-ios-5.1-upgrade-fix
