    I used to get this issue with my original iPod until I did a factory restore and bought a new USB cord that was faulty.

    What do you mean malfunctions? Like a drivers issue?

    If anything, try re-installing iTunes, or restore your iPhone.

    It might be an issue with the USB wire or the USB port on the laptop or software driver issue with the laptop.

    Yep, sounds like a driver issue with your laptop.
    Did you update to the latest itunes and still has problems finding or installing the iphone drivers?
