Thread: iPhone not found by iTunes

  1. #1
    Default iPhone not found by iTunes
    Hi all, hope you are well!

    Just got an unlocked iPhone 1.1.4.

    PC is finding it in Device Manager as an iPhone but not as a camera (Imaging device).

    It is not seen by iTunes.

    If you remove Apple Mobile Device Support from Add/Remove programs and then run iTunes, iTunes says:



    Which means that it know's its connected?

    Then if you reinstall either iTunes or just the Apple Mobile Device Support the same happens again no matter which version of anything you use.

    Stressful!

    Any idea's friends?

    Hey there SundayDuffer, thanks for your help. Unfortunately I've tried this and every version running back to 7.3.1 which actually informs me that this version of iTunes needs to be updated with my 1.1.4 iPhones, which basically means it know's its there but doesnt show it in any version.

    I had trouble with my previous iPhone (dropped it and smashed the screen ) but 7.3.1 usually always found it.

    Any idea's?

    Test it with iBrickr or iPhoneBrowser to see if they see the phone.

    i gave this guide to a thing on itunes support
    it should work

    hello,

    i have had the same problem as all of oyu for a week or so for my iphone. this is how i did it and it should work for all of you. uninstall apple mobile device and after that is done uninstall itunes it will ask to restart do so. then when your computer is up again open task manager go to processes and make sure nothing says apple,if it does end the process, then reinstall itunes off of apple and after that is done take your iphone out and put it back into your computer again and it should work. thats what i did and its perfect!


    urwelcome
    hope it works

    Its a bit weired though as I have installed the latest iTunes at home and nothing is found.

    I did so many different things uninstalling, regedit, reinstalling different versions that I might have not tried that meloyo, so I shall give it ago when I get home. Thanks.
