    Plugged my iPhone into the iMac today, and it wont bring up or connect to iTunes. This hasnt happened before. On my PC, same thing happened. Anyone have any ideas?

    Update: Friday, Jan 22:
    I went into Time Machine and restored my machine a few days back, and presto....the computer now sees my iPhone and everything works fine. I still dont know what happened to cause the problem, and that bothers me.

    Can you manually open iTunes and have it sync? If not, try another computer or another cable.

    Try restarting your phone. If that still does not work, try putting it into DFU mode.

    Do a hard reset on your iPhone (Hold the home and power button until you see the apple logo) also reboot you computers.
