Exporting Aperture 3.2 photos to iPhone 4 / iOS 5 via Mac iTunes 10.5

I had previously imported Photos from iPhone 4 / iOS 4 (using ImToo Podworks Platinum) into PC WIN7 PRO folders. Then updated iPhone 4 to iOS 5 and all photos except Camera Roll were deleted from iPhone 4.

Then imported (click 'n drag) these photos from PC WIN7 PRO folders into Aperture 3.2 Projects and Albums on Mac OS X Lion.

Tried to sync photos from Mac OS X Lion Aperture 3.2 via iTunes 10.5; selecting project from Aperture 3.2 and using iTunes to 'Sync Photo from Aperture...Selected Projects, Albums and Faces and automatically and include the most recent project' but no photos [0 Photos] are selected in iTunes.

All photos are selected in Aperture and all Projects and Albums are selected.

How do I get iTunes to recognize photos in Aperture?

Found this in iTunes Help - will this work to male photos available for sync to iPhone 4?

To export files from other applications directly to your iTunes library:
In the exporting application, set the destination folder asHome/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/ "Automatically Add to iTunes."
If you have an earlier version of iTunes, you might have an iTunes Music folder instead of iTunes Media.

    please try and see if this one resolved your concern. (if you haven't tried it yet)

    "What worked for me, was to create a new blank Aperture Library and select that library in Aperture. I then shut down Aperture. Restarted the computer, re-opened Aperture to make sure the blank Library opened, and then was able to find the blank library in all other Apps. Even in the photo's drop down for the screen saver. I then switched back to my original Aperture Library, and everything is perfect."

    Thanks for your help, I gave up  witrh Aperture 3.2. Trying iPhoto - using photos with no editing requirements.
