Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Here is a KB that discusses that error:
Hopefully it contains something useful! There also are multiple existing threads on this site that discuss that exact error...your review of those might prove useful, and a search of this site, using the error message, error code, or symptom, should reveal all applicable existing threads to you.
Good luck and let us know!

Then I fear that you do not understand the risks nor the protection solutions that are available. FWIW -- Here is what I recommend:
Daily -- configure BB Protect to automatically backup all of the data that it can, preferring WiFi if data network charges are a concern.
With that, you are prepared to recover from pretty much any catastrophic failure. Further, if you synchronize with Outlook (or another compatible PIM), then you have yet another (albeit very limited) level of data protection.
You should check carefully what each can do, though. BB Protect backs up only certain things...look inside of it to see what it backs up. The Desktop Software backup backs up much much more...refer to this KB for what it handles.
Synchronization only works for a maximum of 4 databases...as such, it is actually the "weakest" form of data protection available...hence, I tend to not think of Synchronization as anything truly to do with properly backing up a BB.

I understand about using backups to recover from any catastrophic failure of my blackberry. I use synchronization also as a level of protection. If anything happens to my bb and i switch to a different brand phone, the contacts that i synced between my bb and pc will be easy to be acessed using my other brand phone.

I absolutely agree with you, as long as you understand the relative merits of each level of protection method:
As long as what is critical to you is protected by whatever method you employ, then you are covered. The method I recommend is intended to provide the maximum amount of data protection coupled with the availability of multiple recovery methods so as to provide the user with maximum flexibility and capability.
But, again, each must choose what is "good enough" for them...if protection of only 4 databases is "good enough" for you, then that is just fine.

I've had this Invalid ID error a few times.
Sometimes choosing either "device" or "computer" records for all errors sorts this out.
It may take several sequential syncing without a disconnect of Blackberry cell phone.
Sometimes it is a computer contact in my Microsoft Outlook 2010
that has no label showing which "display as" field is chosen, even if there is only one choice. Unlabelled entries are at top above the digits listing.
Seems to be no program link to search for duplicate entry records either in Microsoft Outlook or Blackberry Desktop software.
Duplicates occur when using Blackberry Protect singular restore, such as Calendar or Contacts, as they don't store 'categories' like MS Outlook 2010 does for both.
Is there a default timeout for Blackberry Desktop software connection to cellphone after an error to sync has occurred?

I got the solution and tried for my self and its working. just do the following to get rid of this issue.
I found out the address book records with picture not there (from Facebook appl) by this method.
In Tools-Desktop Options-Configure Sync Logging Options set Logging Method-Full (default is None).
Then do the sync, when error comes and sync finishes; under Help (? on top right hand side) select 'Support Resources'->'Organizer Sync Logs' (this html file is saved under
C:\Documents and Settings\<current user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Desktop\XCPCSync.OEM\SyncSDK.209.601\Log).
Open the file in browser or html editor. Go to bottom. Go up a few lines and you will find the entry with the picture problem, this is the last entery before the orange line , each entery contain 20 fields.
Go to blackberry handset address book, locate the address and delete the picture.
Again resync and repeat this process till you don't get any more sync error.
