TS1538 My iphone 5s won't show up on my itunes

My phone does show up on windows when I plug it inbut not in iTunes. I've tried everything that it says to do under support as well as uninstalling itunes and reinstalling it but it still won't show up. Is anyone having the same issue? I'm using the latest version of itunes and iOS and am running windows 8.

Hello macr888,
I would be concerned as well if my iPhone was not recognized by iTunes.  Thank you for providing all the information with the steps you took in regards to this issue.  I found an article with a few more steps you can take (you can skip the steps you have already taken):

  • My iPhone 5s won't show up under devices, iTunes, or iMovie. Why?

    I just set up my Mac Mini last night. It is not the newest one. But was brand new in a box. It has all updates to the newest operating system, exc.
    I plugged my iphone 5s into the Mac Mini to upload to iMovie to edit a video. But, my device wont show up. I checked Finder - Nothing. It just wont show up.
    I tried unplugging and plugging it back in, and noticed that it shows up on imovie for a few minutes like it knows it there, but it just says "Iphone 4" - The number goes up each time it back in. But it sits there with the spinning load sign for about a minute then goes blank.
    I have no idea what is going on, or why it wont read my phone.
    If anyone knows why this is happening, and how i can fix it, I would really appreciate it.

  • Iphone music won't show up on my iTunes

    Hi so I just got a new laptop for xmas and when I plug my iPhone 4 completely updated into my iTunes also updated, itunes recognizes the iPhone but only has the actual iPhone icon rather than the usual music and playlists underneath. I have recently moved from Australia to Singapore as well so I had to create a new Singapore account and have forgotten my password on my Australian account and therefore don't have the music I had on my old account available on iTunes. But the music I have on my iPhone is the music that is on my old account. So what I want to know is how do I get my music on my iPhone to show on iTunes so i can play the music on there without having to use a separate program to either play or transfer the music to iTunes.
    If I could avoid it I don't really want to download another program to help and I would like to avoid having to store my music on my laptop because of space and temptation when in school. I would just like to be able to keep the music on my iPhone and no where else in other words.
    Also I have authorized everything for the new laptop.
    Thanks in advance for the help

    I still have this problem help would be good

  • My iphone 4 won't show up in iTunes after installing snow leopard

    My iPhone 4 won't show up after snow leopard has been installed. I just updated iTunes to 10.5.3 (3). the Macbook pro does recognize the device in iPhoto and I can sync the photos. But no connection is made with iTunes. I've read something about it on the support forums, but I'm not sure what to do for fear of losing data either on my phone or on iTunes. Can you help?
    Thanks

  • My iPhone 5S won't show up in iTunes to sync. It charges still and it opens iPhoto, but doesn't even register in iTunes

    My iPhone 5S won't show up in iTunes to sync. It charges still and it opens iPhoto, but doesn't even register in iTunes. I have no idea what to do and nothing is working!
    And the other night while i was trying to sync my phone, it was working until "Error message (-50)" started coming up every time i tried to sync or update my phone's software through itunes on my computer. eventually, itunes quit and i unplugged my phone and updated it wirelessly. i have no idea why any of this is happenings. Itunes is still acting weird for me too.

    Error -50 is generally associated with firewalls or anti-virus software as described here:

    Windows 8.1, 64bit
    It appears that the 64bit install messed up the device drivers for the Apple mobilie devices connecting as USB.
    I tried many things, I may have missed a step below.  But the following is what I believe was the fix - since it worked on a 2nd PC.
    Make sure you are using an administrator account.  Any of them on your machine will do for the following
    a) Get Windows to restart the drivers:
        - disconnect your USB device and close ITunes
        - connect your USB device
        - if ITunes loads, close it.
    b) File explorer:
    Open File explorer and browse to
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers
    In that folder there should be a set of files named "usbaapl64...."
    right click on the one ending in "INF"
    Select Install.  It's very quick.
    remove the USB device
    c) Restart the computer.
    When you login again, load ITunes before you attach your USB device.

    Try
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    I would start with              
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    or              
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    Before you reinstall the Apple software, also remove iCloud vi Control Panel Remove programs. The reinstall the Apple programs
    New cable and different USB port?
    Runs this and see if the results help with determine the cause

  • My back up from last Thursday on my iphone 4s is not showing up in my itunes. I deleted something today & I would like to restore to last week when it was on my phone. How do I find the backup on my pc, how do I move it to itunes to restore phone back to

    My back up from last Thursday on my iphone 4s is now showing up in my itunes. I deleted something today and I need it back desperately. I need to restore my phone back to last Thursday when the information was on my phone. How do I find the backup on my pc and once I find it how do I move it to itunes for me to restore my phone to that day?

    I wished I had known this before I said yes to using icloud. I guess those things will be lost and gone forever, since I do not want to lose my present settings and data. Also do not want to go through the hassle of backing up present, then resetting phone, then restoring oldest back up, then backing up oldest backup to pc, so I can safely backup selected items to my pc; then reset my phone again to restore latest back up. It would take way too much time and no guarantee.
    I backed up my phone to my pc, but have not checked it yet, so don't know if it worked.
    If I decide to quit using icloud (which will probably happen since backing up to external hard drive allows me to open backups) what will happen to my present data and settings? Will they just remain as they were without icloud, as they were before icloud? I'm scared to just delete it; not knowing what will happen. Also why is icloud now my outgoing mail server, when my web email was before I installed icloud and how do I restore my web email as my outgoing mail server. I am using yahoo/at&t for all my mail.
    What will happen to my contacts, notes, messages, voice memos, calendar info, alerts, etc., on my phone if I delete icloud?

  • New computer at work and all my song are on the server-when I try to change the folder location under preferences to the server, it still won't show my songs in Itunes?? please help!

    I have a new computer at work and all my song are on the server-when I try to change the folder location under preferences to the server, it still won't show my songs in Itunes?? please help!

    Howdy carpetjim,
    When you change the folder location like that, it changes where new songs and media are stored. To actually load the library you need to do this:
    Steps to create or choose a different iTunes Library file
    If iTunes is running, quit iTunes.
    If you are using Windows, hold down the Shift key and from the Start menu and choose All Programs > iTunes > iTunes.
    If you are using the Mac, open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option key.
    You should see one of the following screens:
    Additional information
    If you do not see one of the screens above, then you did not hold the correct key at the correct time. You may want to try again. Note that if you pinned iTunes to the Start menu programs, and open it that way, it may not work.
