    Have you done any modding at all? If not, is this happening constantly? Or just once or twice?

    nope, no mods.....
    doesnt happen too often, but it is a pain in the *** to restart my machine, just so I can sync up the phone. Which is what I had to do to make it work.

    I found plugging the iPhone directly into the mac, rather than into a hub fixed it.

    Thumbs up Found PArtial Solution
    Hey guys. I was really frustrated with this issue, and I called Apple after about a month + of not being able to sync to my home computer. I did not have access to a computer, but the support person emailed me this site to fix the issue.

    The option that fixed my problem was to create a new account, even though my current account had full Admin access. He also said that the error message "..error has occured. (0xE8000001)" was not one of Apple's error messages.

    Hope this helps.

    Ok, this message has something to do with the USB driver/connection. iTunes is seeing or thinking that your iPhone is not connected to a 2.0 USB connection although it may be. There isn't really any real solution as of yet which I have found through my research and reading. I have tried a different USB connection which sometimes worked and I have also tried a different phone since I have a 1st gen and 3g. I finally had to narrow it down to my internal USB hub driver. I ended up editing the system strings of my driver where it is constantly fulling iTunes into thinking/knowing it is USB 2.0.

    This problem is all coming from iTunes 7.7 not reading things correctly and I think it also has something to do with some people not being able to sync because "AppleMobileDeviceHelper" stops working but I am not positive on that. I am hopeful that a future iTunes would solve this issue even though Aple wants to say it isn't their fault.

    Is that an iPhone in your pocket?

    Hi, I'm having the same problems. Earlier today, the sound stopped working. I could still hear my ringtone and such, but everything else (apps, texting, and even my music) wouldn't work. I restarted it and it worked fine, so I plugged it in to my computer to sync it and the same error message is popping up. I've had it plugged in for a few hours now and it still won't work.
