How do I fix this error message:iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occured (0xE8000082)

I keep getting this message and don't know what to do to fix it.  I've checked and I have both the latest operating system and iTunes.  I also have the latest O/S for the iPhone 4S,
Has anyone else seen this message and figured out how to fix it?
Mike

This could be caused by a USB connection issue. Make sure the iPhone is directly connected to the Mac using the USB cable it came with. Also, try disconnecting all other USB devices.
If you haven't already try resetting the iPhone by holding the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons until you see an Apple logo as described here:http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305743

  • ITunes could not connect to the iPhone because an unknown error occurred (OxE8000001)

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but I don't have the nerves to read through thousands of "I've got the same problem too" replies. I do not care whether anyone has the same problem. So if you don't have any solution do not post! I'm not being rude, I'd just keep this discussion as accessible for other readers as possible. Besides, shouting "me too" doesn't really help anyone. Thank you.
    Here's my problem, I sync my iPhone via iTunes 10.5.2, which works fine but after a while it prompts with an error message "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone because an unknown error occurred (OxE8000001)". This error message will not disappear and I have to force shut-down iTunes. It works OK for a while after re-start but the error comes back after a while. It is a very annoying little problem because I was waiting for WIFI syncing for so long and now it doesn't work properly
    Any ideas how to remedy this?

  • I am getting error message "iTunes could not back up the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone".  I have deleted the backup and restarted my computer, but continue to get this error message.  What do I need to do now?

    I have recently updated my phone and am attempting to sync it.  I got the error message "iTunes could not back up the iPhone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPhone".  I deleted the backup, restarted my computer, and even restored the iPhone, but continue to get the same error message.  What do I need to do now?

    iTunes places the iPhone backup in the following location. Navigate there & delete everything in the backup folder, but not the folder itself. You will have to turn on "Show All Hidden Files & Folders" to see it:
    Mac:~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Windows XP:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Windows Vista and Windows 7:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\

    3. Then click the button to reset sync history.
    4. Now click ok to close the preferences window.
    5. connect the iphone to itunes and go to the info tab.
    6. scroll to the bottom of the info page and check the box to replace the ical data on the iphone.

  • Error Message: iTunes could not back up the iPhone because an error occurred

    Error Message: iTunes could not back up the iPhone because an error occurred.
    The thing is - I have no idea what error have I encountered!
    Usually, I would assume the previous backup file is corrupted and I will proceed to delete the old backups. I did the same this time round, and it's still unable to sync. Now I have no more backup files!
    I have tried -
    1. Deleting old backup files.
    2. Restarting iPhone 4S & iMAC.
    3. Remove
    I am using iOS 5.1 on iPhone 4S, and iTunes 10.6.1 on Mac OSX Lion. My phone is not jail-broken in the first place.
    Does anyone face the same problem?
    I need to back up my files!!!

    Unfortunately, "because and error occured" doesn't give you much to go on.  Some general things I would try if you haven't already:
    Use Disk Utility on your mac to repair disk permissions, then reboot and try backing up again.
    Use Finder to go to ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/, then control-click on the Backup folder and select Get Info, then check Sharing & Permissions at the bottom and make sure your username has read & write priviledges
    Try closing all apps, then reset your phone: double-tap the home button, tap and hold the apps at the bottom until they wiggle, tap the minus sign on all apps to close them.  Then reset your phone: hold the on/off and home buttons until you see the Apple logo (ignore the off slider that appears first), and release
    Try a different usb to dock connector cable; ensure that your case isn't interfering with a good connection to the dock connector at the bottom of your phone; clean the dock connector at the bottom of your phone (e.g., with a dry toothbrush); troubleshoot your usb connection (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1286)
    I know this looks like a laundry list, but unfortunately it's hard to isolate the problem without a clear error message.  If the problem persists, you might try posting in the iMac or iTunes forums for other ideas.

  • Error message "itunes could not connect to the ipad because an invalid response was received from the device".

    Hi, I am having problems with itunes and my ipad........
    I can use my ipad on my laptop but it will not connect to my main PC, I get the error message:
    "itunes could not connect to the ipad because an invalid response was received from the device"
    I have done all the Apple support ideas including re-installing itunes twice but no joy.
    It used to work a week or so ago and no, I can't think of anything I have done which would have stopped it.
    I have run msconfig and disabled everything but still no connection.
    Anyone got any ideas?????

    Hi,
    For no apparent reason my phone stopped working...so I did a reset and got the message 'Restore Needed'. I connected to iTunes and got this message: 'iTunes could not connect to the iPhone because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on your iPhone before it can be used with iTunes'.
    The problem is, I can't enter my passcode because I'm not given that option on the iPhone. All I seem to be able to do is make an emergency call.
    It's been working fine otherwise. Any suggestions?
    This is the SECOND replacement iPhone I've had this week and I'm getting a bit fed up.
    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Are you referring to the 4 digit passcode needed to enter the phone and use it's features?
    If so reboot your iPhone and enter the passcode to get it operational.  Launch Image Capture on the Mac and connect the iPhone.  Now you should be able to download the video files to wherever you want on your hard drive.

  • I deleted the backup on itunes, synced again and got the error message: itunes could not back up the iphone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iphone

    I am using iphone 3GS, after syncing for few times and got the errors. I deleted the backup from Edit-> Preferences-> Devices. Then I synced again,  there was an error message: itunes could not back up the iphone because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iphone. What can I do? I have no backup anymore on ituens.

    babesharon
    I closed iTunes & manually deleted the file which was still stored locally even though it didn't display in Preferences.  I have vista so I went to
    C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync and deleted everything in the Backup folder (though I left the folder as is).  If you have a different OS search the apple website for the backup location.
    I reopened iTunes & Synced with out a problem.  I also got the update to install.
    Good luck.

  • 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".
