    Default Problem with Windows and iPhone DFU
    Hi
    I have my iPHone in DFU mode (the screen is black) and Windows found it but failed to install the DFU driver for some reason.

    Here is a screenshot:

    Why is this? Is my iPhone stuck in DFU until I get it restored?

    Thanks

    Try restarting the computer. If that doesn't work, see if somehow you can go to the properties of the iPhone in that screen and see if you can uninstall the driver maybe??? If all else fails, a different computer should do the trick.

    Right click my computer --> Properties --> Device Manager
    Right click Apple DFU Driver --> Uninstall.
    Unplug USB cable
    Reconnect USB cable with phone attached in DFU Mode.

    Voila!!!
    Windows finds it.

    I hope this helps someone.

    I have a feeling this is the proper way of fixing my problem. But, what happens if we don't see the driver in the list?
