I've got a 2ng gen ipod touch and a 3g iphone both don't show up in itunes anymore, but they do show in iphoto, this is in my mbp. - I've plugged them into a macbook and they show up fine. - I installed iphone configuration utility about a week ago, it doesn't show up in there, i think this may have broke it, - I've followed the apple instructions http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2050 and it didn't fix the problem - I restored my ipod using the macbook, this hasn't fixed the problem - When I put the device in recovery mode itunes does sees it, i press 'restore' but get this message: "software for this ipod is not currently available. make sure you have the latest version of itunes and try again" I do have the latest version. can anyone help?
