  • iPhone Can't Sync with Win 7 PCs Using P55 Express?


    Reports that users are unable to sync their iPhones on Windows 7 computers that use motherboards with Intel's P55 Express southbridge emerged six weeks ago. Now, a story in The Register indicates that Intel and Microsoft are looking into the problem, but Apple remains silent.

    Users have reported that when they try to sync using iTunes 9 for Windows on PCs equipped with the P55 "chipset" (actually an integrated controller hub on a single chip), they get the above “error 0xE8000065″ message, which The Register identifies as an “iPhone-connection failure notification.” The problem occurs consistently with iPhones directly connected to onboard USB ports or connected hubs, though some users have reported success connecting to USB ports on PCI cards. However, other users have reported "blue-screen" crashes when attempting to use expansion cards.

    The issue seems to be generally with Windows 7 systems, but there have been sporadic reports of computers with the P55 controller running 64-bit Vista also failing to sync. The problem has been reported on motherboards manufactured by Micro-Star International (MSI), Gigabyte, and Asustek.

    Microsoft was contacted by The Register for its story, and provided the following statement:
    Microsoft has not seen this particular question posed in the Microsoft Answers for Windows 7 community forum, nor in any of our call centers. We reviewed the issue raised on the Apple Discussion Board and are currently investigating. If we determine this to be a problem specific to Windows 7, we will post an update on the Microsoft Answers site.
    Apple has not responded to the issue raised on its own discussion board, though one ModMyi user was able to resolve the problem by enabling C-state mode in BIOS as a poster on the Support forums suggested. Other workarounds include disabling Bonjour or deleting the iPodDevices.xml file.

    The kicker: 27-inch iMac models sporting Intel's Core i5 processors are expected later this month, with Core i7 iMacs to follow in January - and those computers may very well be using P55 Express. So chances are Apple is on this, just in their typical non-communicative manner.

      Anyway, no issues here, running a Gigabyte motherboard with nVidia north and south bridge. I've had Windows 7 x64 since the first open beta without a single issue whatsoever. Now running retail x64 professional and haven't had any problems at all.
      wow cool you know about computers... and you've never had a girlfriend

      but anyways COOL INTERNET ARGUMENT

      Its another tactic created by mac to discredit windows. They probably purposely created an error with certain windows machines and hardware just to try discredit windows. And all the mac fanboys gobble this stuff up because they paid double for ****** hardware and want to defend their purchases by saying mac is better. Amirite?

      So instead of trying to disprove my comment by showing reason and thought, you instead attack my spelling?

      Looks like someone lost and doesn't have anymore ammo to fight with.

      Worst attempt at trolling ever. 0/10

      See, you just said that you're not here to argue, yet you still make fun of the OS your against.

      Quit being a hypocrite fanboy, use some logic, and stop attacking others purely because they have a different opinion then you.


      Anyways, I think that its pretty clear by now that A) Its not Window's fault B) Its the fault of the hardware/iTunes fault, leaning more on the iTunes's fault, since there are going to be Apple laptops that are going to use the same hardware soon, and c) People should really research on their topics and reasons before going into a argument. people that enter into an 2-sided argument with the mindset of who their going to be with before listening to the facts end up looking like losers.

      The whole thing is in the way apple designed the drivers to interact with windows 7. In the end Microsoft will probably fix the issue through a hot fix,a nd apple will blame them for it being a windows issue. but it will be apples drivers that are updated to fix the issue.

      Download/Install the XP version and then under properties,
      check the "Run as Administrator" box
      Then run it in compatibility mode for XP service pack 3.

      If the problem persists, you probably need to restore your phone so it knows what kind of computer its dealing with. (Or thinks its dealing with)

      Worked for me

Maybe if you would pull your head out of your ***, you might have the same luck and get to finally lose your virginity. (I doubt it though)
      thanks dad. Yup the 80's were great to you.



      I don't understand where and Internet argument will get you. Half you guys are laughing that you "won" the argument. Cool! You're still sitting in your basement playing world of Warcraft and roleplaying as final fantasy characters or something of that nature.

      LOL!!! and please don't call me names online. It hurts so badly

      Xwinger,
      1) you don't know that
      2) How do we know that your not just describing yourself
      3) I know people with great lives (with great girls) who i would of never guessed that they know so much about computers/games.
      4) Just because someone beat you on the internet, doesn't automatically make them a nerd/loser.
      5) If i had to choose on being a smart, knowledgeable person, or a person that had no idea on what he was talking about, guess which one i would pick.
      6) Girls will always go after the alpha male. Guess where smart people are.
      7) Don't stereotype other people. Doing this makes you look like a major douche

      And we should really quit talking about this and get back on topic. Personal attacks will get you no where.

      This post pretty much sums up why mac users are sometimes thougth of as pretentious a-s-s-h-o-l-e-s.

      How a mac users mind works-

      Own a PC-you must play WoW (while living in moms basement), while all of us rich mac owners enjoy life!!!!


      no wonder i wanna punch those uppity mac users that take 15 minutes to order their coffee every single damn time I go to starbucks
