IPhone 4 with IOS 5 no longer appears as device

I have 3 iphones, 2 iphone 4 and 1 iphone 3g. I recently updated iTunes to get the new IOS 5. After I updated 1 of my iphone 4, everything worked fine for a couple of days. However, when I tried to update my second iphone 4, iTunes would not recognize it as a device, I tried my iphone 4 w/IOS 5, and the same thing happened, it was not recognized. I tried w/my iphone 3g and iTunes will sometimes recognize it, but not always. All phones are being charged when connected, so I dont think is the cable. I followed the troubleshooting instructions, but it did not work. Does anyone has any ideas on how to fix this? Its driving me crazy cause I cant sink my music. Thanks.

Just to double check here, are there photos in the Camera Roll? The only time the iPhone will show up in Windows Explorer is if there is content in the Camera Roll. If there is no content there it will not show up since there is no other file management that you can do from there. If there is content, try and reset the phone, will not do anything to data, by holding down the sleep/wake and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo and then release. See if that helps.

  • My apple tv gen 1 no longer appears in Devices on itunes.  Any ideas?

    My apple tv gen 1 will longer appears in Devices in itunes and therefore can't synch.  Any ideas?  My ATV1 software is up to date, it connects to the Internet, my laptop iTunes is 11.1.3.8, connects to the internet.  Both connect my WiFi.  Since it stopped showing up in Devices, I reset my Apple TV 1 to original factory settings and updated its software.  Still does not appear.  I tried different laptops, all with the 11.1 version of iTunes.  Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the Apple community cdmlbca.
    Navigate to Settings > Computers > Your Library on the Apple TV, you may be told you will lose all synced content, but you can sync it back afterwards, you won't lose any purchased content that has yet to be transferred. Then select Settings > Computers > Connect To iTunes, note the passcode that appears on screen, click on the device in iTunes and enter the passcode when prompted.

  • I have an iPhone with iOS 7.1.1 and am trying to update to 7.1.2, but get an error message "iTunes could not back up the iPhone becaus the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone"

    I have an iPhone with iOS 7.1.1 and am trying to update to 7.1.2, but get an error message "iTunes could not back up the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone"

    Assuming you are using the current version of iTunes (11,2,2), open iTunes, click "Preferences" under the leftmost entry on iTunes' menu, then choose "Devices".
    Find the iPhone's backup there, highlight it, and choose "Delete Backup".

  • I hv iPhone with ios 6.0.2 My iphone could not able to check for update-it's just showing "checking for updates" with loading sign How can I upgrade to ios 7?  Help pls

    Help pls

    I agree- I apologize if I sounded skeptical and attacking. In no way did I mean it to sound that way.
    I completely agree on the software-hardware combo issue- this is why apple killed off 1G and 2G devices- because newer software revisions would never ever run well if at all on such ancient devices. can you imagine running iOS 6 on an iPhone/iPod touch 1G? That would be terrible. Let alone iOS 3 runs terrible on them and now are generally rendered useless due to newer App Store requirements (most require 4.3+ now to allow apple to kill off the older devices). forcing newer software on older hardware (apple, dell, HP,... Anything electronic this definitely applies to) will almost always yield less-than-par results. The other part is apple forcing you to upgrade by means of intentially making things obsolete. all companies do that.
    All of this factual info aside, the issue at hand with the 5 is not a software-hardware combo problem- those are most widely seen with the major revisions. then again, this isn't the first time apple has gotten caught up in battery drain snafus (even iOS 5 was plagued with this as well- and now there are some people desperate to roll back but can't). it basically waters it down to the point where keeping the stock software will always yield the best results even though newer versions provide better features- it all depends on whether or not the person deems the added features are worth a performance hit.
    PS. I'm still at 100%- and I've been using it periodically throughout the day. your combo worked for you, but didn't for me. And may or may not work for others- As the tech world would say, mileage may vary.
    PSS. What model/carrier do you have? Just wondering.

    Assuming you're creating this event to place in your calendar, and assuming this calendar is shared with your iMac and iPad using iCloud, might the calendar be restricted on your iPhone?

  • Can anyone help with associate my new iPhone with iTunes? My other old devices are there, but I see only how to delete one, not how to add one.  Thank you.

    iTunes Match is a subscription system that allows you to upload your own music (e.g. coped from CDs) to the cloud so that it shows (in the cloud) on your devices and computers without having to sync/copy it.
    Automatic downloads allows to, for example, buy an app on your computer's iTunes and have it automatically download on your phone without having to connect and sync it or go to the Purchased tab in the App Store app on your download and download it yourself - but doing that, going to the Purchased tab and redownloading an app, should get it associated.
    But no, I'm not aware of any problems that not having it associated causes.

    Hi deamayfield,
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    If your Music app is unresponsive, try restarting/resetting your iPhone:

    Hi Apple_Mom,
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    If you've noticed issues after updating to iOS 7.0.2, you may want to first update to iOS 7.0.3 which was recently released.

    Are you sure you have a 3GS and not a 3G?  The 3G cannot be updated to iOS5.  What version are you on now?... Settings > General > About > Version

    Well, first off, you are not addressing Apple here. This is a user to user PUBLIC forum. You should not post your personal information like that. Try closing iTunes, reboot the computer and connect again. Are you using the latest version of iTunes, v11.1?

  • After I updated my iPhone with IOS 6.1 my old Apple ID keeps popping up on my iPhone for me to type in the password that I no longer know. On the Apple site the Manage my Apple ID says my old Apple ID could not be found. How do I get this to stop?

    I just updated my iPhone with the newest update IOS 6.1. My old Apple ID keeps popping up on my iPhone for me to type in the password that I no longer know. All the passwords I type in do not work. I no longer have access to this email which is my old Apple ID. After installing the newest software update my old Apple ID came up to finish configuring. Since I no longer have access to this Apple ID and email account and after trying some passwords I skipped the step. It then said FaceTime, iCloud (which I do not use), and more may not work. I clicked that it was OK since I could not remember the password to my old Apple ID. I then went to my settings to be sure my newer email was my Apple ID by typing in my current Apple ID and password.  Also, I went to Manage my Apple ID online and my old Apple ID could not be found. Is it OK I skipped that step in the IOS 6.1 configuration? How do I get my old Apple ID to stop popping up?

    It sounds like you restored from an old back-up.  Did you back-up just before your software update?  It will use your last one and if your last back-up was a ywear old then it will use that one.
    In general, if you are getting these messages on your iPhones select logout (when you get that Apple Id request) and then log back in with your newer ID.
    Sorry for your losses.
    Cheers
