    I had the same issue earlier this year and was able to fix it. See my fix below.

    The problem is that the necessary drivers either didn't install to the correct directory on your computer, or Windows just forgets they are there. Either way, give this a shot, and let me know if it works out. I feel your pain, it was a very frustrating issue.

    ------------------------------------------------
    I'm using Windows XP Pro-

    First, ensure that you have iTUnes 7.5 Installed. I recommend this version, since 7.6.1 is what caused this problem for me in the first place.
    If you need to uninstall a newer version, do so by opening the control panel and use the "Add/Remove Programs" utility.

    1- You must right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage
    2- In the left pane, select "Device Manager"
    3- In the right window, expand "Imaging devices" or similar imaging category
    4- You should see "Apple Camera" or something similar
    5- Right click on the "Apple camera" and select "Update Driver"
    6- Select second option "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" click Next
    7- Check the box labeled "Include this location in the search
    8- Copy and paste this path into the folder line- CProgram Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers
    9- Click "Next"

    Windows should now locate the necessary USBAAPL driver to run the iPhone and enable it's detection in iTunes.

    If this does not work, open your windows explorer, and use the search option at the top of the window. Search for "Usbaapl". This should turn up the location of the driver files you need to reassociate the iPhone with iTunes. Make a note of the directory, and use that in the Driver Update (step 8 above). My drivers happened to be in the CProgram Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers folder.

    I hope this gets some of you back to working /syncing order.

    Let me clarify...
    iTunes 7.7 has the drivers for firmware 2.0. It is important that when downgrading to 7.5, it was originally 7.7. Earlier versions of iTunes will not recognize an iPhone upgraded to 2.0 FW. Matter of fact if you dock the phone on earlier versions of iTunes, hardware install error message will pop up. No offense but the solution you posted is not going to work for 2.0 firmware and fix the OPs problem.

    Ozzycruzer7, make sure the phone is in DFU mode. Not doing it properly causes a majority of the problems. Hope this helps.
