    I just thought of asking this, although it may not be to anybody's advantage. Are you trying to sync over wifi or plugged into your computer?

    Hello, and welcome to iCafe. I've never seen that issue before, and have no clue how to solve it. Maybe someone will offer a solution. You posted this in iPhone 4 and it may have fallen through the cracks. :oops:

    If you recently changed the region for your account, change it back to what it originally was when you made the purchases and then delete the SC hidden folder.

    If you haven't ever changed the region, try this:

    1. Deauthorize your Apple ID.
    2. Log out of your Apple ID account on tour computer and your phone.
    3. Reboot your computer and your iPhone.
    4. Login to your Apple ID account on your phone and your computer and authorize the computer.

    Instead of getting into reset and other stuff simply authorize iTunes using all the apple accounts you may have ever used for downloading any song or app from the store.
