    "Mobile Device Service" is a service that runs in the background on your PC which enables the PC to "talk" to your Iphone. You can manually stop the service through taskmanager (ctl+alt+del), however if for some reason it stops, you should just be able to restart the computer and everything is good to go.

    My advice, if you havent already rebooted your computer, do so.

    Otherwise, I would reinstall Itunes, that should fix your problem.

    reboot your computer, and if you have shutdown processes via task manager or some other program that is used to gain performance you need to turn turn the applemobiledevices service back on.

    open your task manager and under processes you should see the service running. if it isnt then you need to go to control panel and use a computer management program to turn the service back on.
