My iPhone 3G is being recognised perfectly happily by iTunes, but absolutely nothing else. It doesn't appear in Finder and doesn't open iPhoto when I plug it in, so I can back up my photos.
I've tried restarting both the Mac (which is running Snow Leopard) and the iPhone. I've tried several cables. The result is always the same. iTunes spots the iPhone (it did use to automatically open iTunes, but I stopped that) and nothing else. No icon on the desktop, no appearance in Finder and won't show in any searches I do.
How can I fix this, and start backing up photos again?
I recently updated iTunes. The update went smoothly, but immediately after the update iTunes no longer shows my iPhone4. The diagnostics show that everything is okay with exception of the no iPhone connected error. I've run through all of the Apple helps but nothing has fixed the problem. The same problem occurs on other user profiles on the same computer. The computer is a 64-bit Windows 7 machine. Windows 7 shows the iPhone and I can access it as a camera or drive. I've re-installed the phone USB driver but still no go. I can plug my phone into another computer and the sync works fine.
I am a BES user and recently my account had to be recreated. I had taken a back up of the device from desktop manager. However after restore I find that all the BBM contacts, Bookmarks and Auto-text was not restored.I had spent a lot of time in making all the Auto text relevant to me. Doesn't the back-up process back up all these data?
Basically my iTunes has been showing this error message whenever I sync my iPhone with it, probably for around the last 2 or 3 months, maybe longer. Everything is transfered fine it's just that this message comes up.
It says to delete the backup file how do I do this and it won't delete anything off the actual iPhone will it?
I get this error: iTunes could not back up the iPhone " xxxx iPhone" because the iPhone is disconnected. Of course it is not true, I have it connected, it will sync but not back up. I had old back ups from another iPhone, but I had to exchange it out for this one. I have tried everything I could find on the internet, and all the programs on my iPhone is the same as the old one.
I have just tried to back-up & update my iPhone but when doing so iTunes gives an error message saing that it can't restore or back-up as the phone is corrupt? The phone is only 5 months old and was restored successfully last time
I just got a new iphone because the sleep button on my old one didnt work. I backed up my old phone to my computer before I switched phones. While I was restoring the phone my daughter disconnected it. Is all my information gone? is there a way I can restore it to a previous back up date?
I wonder if anyone else has experienced this bug on the 4s with iOS 5.1 ? I have:
Cellula Data > OFF
Enable 3G > OFF
After a device reboot I notice the battery is draining fast and I check in cellular data settings and sure enough 3G has turned itself back on. I have reported this using Apple Feedback but wanted to see if anyone else has uncovered this bug / can reproduce it. I can reproduce it after each and every reboot.
I have iPhone of the first generation and have recently bought a new 4S. How can I back up my old iPhone contacts to my PC and then transfer them to my new iPhone?
I obviously cannot use the iCloud with the old iPhone. I also do not want to sync the iPhone with iTunes in order to transfer the contacts to the PC since I am on a new laptop and the music on the iPhone will get deleted during sync with my new empty iTunes library. I am getting a similar message each time I want to transfer the contacts over to my computer via iTunes sync:
Every since the last IOS update I keep getting this error. I tried several POC and phone resets and restarts. I tried removing the old backups and then reseting some more but I keep getting this error. "ITunes could not back up the iphone "iphone" because an error occurred". I searched online and I can't find any solutions that work. Is this Apples way of trying to force you to use iCloud or is there another way to restore my phone without using the restore function and losing my data?
I discovered that i deleted videos and pictures that i did not want to delete and need them back. I have since backed my iphone up a few times on itunes and need to recovers my pictures from further back. I tried the iphone extracter but it would only let me recover from my most recent back up
I recently backed up my damaged 4gsm to iTunes. I have since been issues with 4s version. When I try to restore my 4s from iTunes backup option, iTunes asks for a password. There is no option to help retrieve this password & I have tried effortlessly to use a variety of potential passwords but still cannot get past this lock section. I can see that it was backed up but I just can't get into the back up due to this silly password request.
