Iphone 3GS will not sync with Windows

I could not get it to sync and the dealer then told me it does not work with Windows 7 so I am returningd it and the other stuff I bought from the apple store and cancelled my order for another one and 2 new macs. The dealer was not too worried. Apple must have so many customers that they do not have to worry about new ones, nice business. Misrepresentation of a products capabilities is one day going to cost them though in my experience. I have bought a 3 ipods which did actually work. iPhone is a product that does not work with Windows 7 and a 1 year old laptop and in the year 2009 that is almost unbelievable and should be told to consumers before they buy and struggle and then realise they have been sold a dud.

I think you are mixing things up. This is a patch supplied by Intel to motherboards and BIOS (BASIC INPUT OUTPUT SYSTEM) manufacturers who based their newest motherboards on Intel P55 chipset. To get this fix you update your BIOS. The BIOS is independent of any operating system (it comes with the motherboards already flashed). Has nothing to do with Apple or Microsoft.
here is a link
A few days ago we had reported a problem with iTunes sync between the iPhone and PCs equipped with Windows 7 of the Intel P55 chipset. Intel released a patch that solves this problem within seconds. You can download the patch here and then start the installation. Restart your computer and you will see all your sync problems are solved.
NOTE: If your computer doesen’t feature the specs above, do not install the patch. Otherwise, happy syncing….

  • FIXED (for me at least): iPhone 3gs will not sync with Gateway NV79

    I’ve spent months trying to fix this miserable problem with getting my iPhone 3gs to sync with my new Gateway NV79. Gateway will not help. Their technical support is genuinely worthless. Microsoft blames Apple and Apple blames Gateway.
    My old iPod Nano syncs to my Gateway NV79 without a problem. I’ve tried all of the proposed fixes but other posters with no success.
    But I do believe I’ve discovered a real fix (for me at least). Here’s my setup:
    • Gateway NV79 running Windows 7 64 bit edition
    • iTunes 10
    • iPhone 3gs running OS 4.02
    The USB ports needs tweaking to get the iPhone 3gs to sync to the Gateway NV79. Follow these steps without your iPhone 3gs connected to the Gateway NV79:
    Step 1: Go to Control Panel
    1. Open Control Panel
    2. Click Hardware & Sound
    3. Click Power Options
    4. Make sure Balanced is selected and click Change Plan Settings
    5. Click Change advanced power settings
    6. Expand USB Settings
    7. Expand USB selective suspend setting
    8. Change On Battery setting to Disabled.
    9. Change Plugged in setting to Disabled
    10. Click OK
    Step 2: Go to Windows Explorer
    1. Open Windows Explorer
    2. Right-Click Computer (not your computer name)
    3. Click Properties
    4. Click Device Manager
    5. Expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers
    6. Right-click first Generic USB Hub
    7. Click Properties
    8. Click Power Management
    9. Uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power
    10. Click OK
    11. Right-click second Generic USB Hub
    12. Click Properties
    13. Click Power Management
    14. Uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power
    15. Click OK
    16. Restart your computer
    After your computer restarts, login and connect your iPhone.
    You must complete both steps. Step 1 is required for Step 2 to stick.
    There are a few things that may happen. iTunes may start syncing immediately and fail with an error. Don’t worry. If the sync fails the first time, restart the computer with the iPhone still connected. Now, iTunes will either take you to setup screen to connect your iPhone or the sync may restart. In my case, the setup screen came up and I DID NOT CHOOSE TO RESTORE. Pick the first option to add your iPhone. The sync will restart and may or may not finish. Don’t worry, if the sync fails, restart your computer again with the iPhone still connected and this time the sync will work.
    Here’s the problem: the iPhone 3gs will not sync with the power management enabled for the USB ports on the Gateway NV79.
    Good luck.

    If you cannot update your computer, you will not be able to sync your phone. The requirements are:
    Mac system requirements
    Mac computer with USB 2.0 port
    Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later
    iTunes 10.1 or later (free download from www.itunes.com/download)
    iTunes Store account
    Internet access

  • Iphone 3gs will not sync with itunes copied from external hard drive.

    We transferred itunes from an external hard drive to a new laptop pc, after copying it from our old desktop.  I connected a new iphone 3gs on the laptop (first iphone on any of our computers), and itunes does not recognize the iphone, so it does not sync.  Is there any solution to this problem?

    did you copy the itunes folder from my music? and any other folder your music files might have been in.
    Another folder to copy is user/appdata/roaming/apple computer

  • Replaced iphone 3Gs will not sync with itunes

    Hi, First timer on this forum, read through all questions but could not find a related Q&A to my problem so hopefully someone can offer some help.
    I received a replacement iphone from apple but it is not being recognized by itunes on my macbook. My netbook is picking it up, but I need to restore from my back up files to get all my info back. I have gone through the steps offered by apple support, except uninstalling completely itunes. I tried to download itunes v10 but getting an error "Verification code not recognized". My ipod touch and my wifes iphone are not being picked up either. All worked last week?
    Any thoughts?

    I forgot to mention that when I tried to sync in Windows 7, I had to authorize my PC as if it were a new computer. Is that unusual?
    I also just tried rebooting using Vista. Still won't sync.
    Now the message reads: The disk cannot be read from or written to.

  • Iphone 3gs will not sync with computer help !!

    Okay, I've tried everything I read on the internet and nothing has worked. I even erased the data and settings off it because it wouldnt sync with my Itunes. Now its telling me to connect it to Itunes but I cant? Also I activated it off a different computer because I was having trouble installing Itunes, now that I finally have it, it doesnt work. I'm going out of my mind here can someone PLEASE help me ???

    Oh well no not that, its just that it does not appear on the Itunes left side bar. I'm re-istalling Itunes now but I don't think it would make much difference because I only installed it yesterday so its not that its an old version. Nope no error message or anything just doesnt show up. When I go onto the start menu and click computer the Iphone shows up there.

  • My iphone 5 will not sync with my macbook pro.  it says my computer is no longer authorized to download purchased items from the iphone

    my iphone 5 will not sync with my macbook pro.  it says my computer is no longer authorized to download purchased items from the iphone.  However, when I go to authorize my computer, it says it is already authorized.  How do I fix this?

    You can't change the Apple ID that the Authorize dialog comes up with by default. It's showing you that Apple ID for a reason: it means that the items you want to play were purchased using that Apple ID and therefore you need to authorize your computer with that Apple ID. Changing the Apple ID given completely defeats the entire purpose.
    If you don't know the password to the given Apple ID, then you will no longer be able to play those items.

    i have ipod classic 5gen it will not sync with windows the error message says ipod can not sync as required file missing   wht to do???

    Although you used the new USB 3.0 port, the actual connection speed is still USB2.0, as the iPod Dock connector, does not have the 10 times faster USB3.0 signal pins, the connection speed is still 480Mbits/s
    I assumed that you have tried the other USB 2.0 port to no success..
    Can you do the iPod Disk diagnostic as posted earlier by tt2, it wont fix your problem, but helps in troubleshooting.
    Have a nice day!
