I just upgraded from the iPhone 3s to the 4s. I tried to connect to iTunes on my Windows 7 computer and the device is not recognized in either Windows Explorer or iTunes. Did some troubleshooting with a different USB cable, checked that the USB connection was working, uninstalled iTunes and associated Apple programs, reinstalled iTunes and still nothing.
I had the problem of iTunes not recognising the iPhone on MOST occasions when I start it. Sometimes it would sometimes it wouldn't. This has been going on for 4 months. After running through all the tips on the web, from apple and everyone else i finally discovered I was low on Disk Space (I tried to copy the iTunes backup files to another location to protect them and they wouldn't fit). So I cleaned out my hard disk and everything worked.
My iPhone 4 suddenly stopped charging via ANY charge medium, connected directly to USB port with adapter, via an iHome-like stereo, nor will it work in a wall charger. Also, neither a Mac (10.7) nor will a Win 7 computer with updated iTunes recognize it. Every time I connect it I get a message "USB device not recognized and has malfunctioned..." I have already changed the battery out (it was already out of warranty) still not charging or being recognized.
my iphone only charges went off and every time i plug into the computer it says "USB Device Not Recognized one of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it." iTunes cant even find the device,It was working fine two days ago but now it isn't whats going on???┬
I'm having a LOT of trouble with my iPhone (5c). A couple of days ago a vertical black line appeared on the right side of my screen. I hadn't dropped it or damaged it in any way, so I was a bit puzzled by it. A friend at work suggested I restored to factory settings to see if that worked (I didn't think it would, but what would be the harm to try?). Everything else was working just fine. Midway through the restore, iTunes says it can't finish because it can't detect my iPhone any longer. Meanwhile, my iPhone is now displaying the "connect to iTunes image". But now, when I plug it in, Windows does not recognize it. Tried with two different PCs, neither is working.┬
I'm currently on a Windows 8.1 PC and using iOS 8.1.1 on my phone. I tried all the stuff on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch not recognized in iTunes for Windows - Apple Support, but there's no way.
I have my iPhone activated fine and everything was ok. Today I plug it in and it doesn't show in iTunes??? I already restarted my computer and the iPhone and everything and the problem is still occuring.
I am using the most updated itunes version with windows 7 64 bit. I can connect to itunes with my iphone 4GS, but my old Iphone 3GS isn't being recognized by itunes. I have tried turning iphone off and on and restarting computer. I can connect everytime with my 4GS, but it will never recognize my 3GS.
My Ihone 4s is not being recognized by Itunes.There seems to be no connection, the cable i am using is not the problem because itunes will recognize my Ipad2 and Ipod thru it. I have the most current itunes and phone software
For the first time in a while, I'm trying to sync my phone with itunes. The last time I connected it was before the OS upgrade. I'm not sure if this has something to do with it? I tried almost everything in the troubleshooting except for uninstalling and reinstalling itunes. I have a lot of play lists saved that I'm afraid to lose My computer is recognizing that the iphone is connected.
My iphone 3GS has recently restored the music and contacts. As a result itunes will no longer recognize me iphone. It will either say I need to charge it or the apple logo will stay on the screen. It has been jailbroken (So I can't update it), but has kept working. How do I fix it (Having itunes recognze the phone)?
Trying to Sync my iPhone 4 but it will not show up under devices in iTunes - thought i had a bad plug or connector but plugged our other iphone 4 in it popped right up and was able to sync, am using my mac desk top and tried my macbook pro too. Did get error message but unfortunately did not write it down
iTunes and iPhoto will not recognize my iPhone 4 when I plug it in.I just "synced/backed-up" my phone about 3 weeks ago and it was fine, now it will not do anything when I plug it into my Mac.I have re-booted the phone and my mac and updated the software on both and nothing. I have tried the holding down the "sleep/turn off button and home button until the picture of the USB cord shows to plug it into iTunes and I do so and still nothing happens. I have turned my phone off and then plugged it into the USB and the phone will turn back on but still is not recognized by iTunes or iPhoto.I have tried the iSync from the applications on my Mac and it recognized it as my Smartphone, but then says it can not pair the device.I have called Apple Support and of course they will do nothing for you unless you pay for it because I am past my 90 days...bunch of crap when the phone is not even a year old (7-8 months)!I have done everything short of resetting to its original factory settings, which I do not have a problem doing if iTunes will then recognize the phone, but what do I do if it doesn't...I have lost everything and how do I get it back?
My Iphone 5c is not recognized by Itunes when I plug it in, however I know that the USB port is not faulty because my computer recognizes the device. My laptop is running Windows 8.1. I've gone through the Apple support documents for this issue with no luck. My Iphone is running the latest update, IOS 8.1.1, and my phone is also up to date. ┬
Iphone 4 is not recognized by iTunes and it wants me to reset but I must make sure my contacts are backed up first.┬ they are the only things I care about.┬ I was able to download my pictures but not my contacts, music or anything else. want free solution preferably.
