    I almost posted this in the iPhone forum, but then realized it wasn't an iPhone problem, it's a laptop problem.

    My iPhone 3Gs running firmware 3.1 will not sync with my iBook g4 running OS 10.4.11.

    I have the newest available versions of both iTunes and Safari.

    The phone WILL sync with my wife's Macbook, so I know it isn't the phone. I am stuck with the iBook for now, because my house was burglarized and my Macbook Pro was stolen.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    It won't work on either USB port? Are the ports working for other devices?

    Hah. Now I feel like an idiot. Thank you, though. Looks like my USB ports might be fried.:(

    :(

    Also, you cannot sync over FW400 for the iPhone GS just in case you were goign to try that. They removed the FireWire hardware at the introduction of the 3G model.
