Can't copy to or from iPhone


     I've got an iPhone 5s, running IOS 7.04, an iMac running 10.9.1, and Filemaker 12 and Filemaker Go 12. SOME but not all of my Filemaker databases won't copy to or from the iPhone using iTunes 11.1.2(8). When I try to copy to the iPhone I get a dialog box saying that the file can't be copied because I don't have permission to see its contents.

     I've tried all the obvious stuff — rebuilding permissions, being sure I have permission in Finder to read and write the files and enclosing folder, and even setting Sharing permissions in Filemaker to allow my to read and write the file. Rebooting. Restarting iTunes. Restarting the iPhone. Even made a new database and copied the old records over. Same problem. Made a new empty database. Ditto.

     This does NOT happen with all files, some go over just fine. But it's been driving me nuts for weeks now. Any help appreciated.
