iTunes keeps showing the 'Restore or Back Up' screen when I try to sync!

    Hi all,

    Bit of a frustrating problem has appeared from nowhere.

    Whenever I connect my iPhone 4 to my Mac, it appears in the left-hand bar as usual. However, it doesn't show the Sync screen with all tabs along the top etc, as usual.

    It's now just showing the 'Set Up Your iPhone' screen. But it's already set up, and backed up. I've already just restored to my last backup to see if that would help, but no - it's still the same.

    I'm running all the latest iOS5 Beta versions.

    Any idea what the hell is causing this problem, and how I can get things back to normal?

    I would say that restoring as new would fix your problem, but I would assume you wouldn't want to do that.

    I guess I could try that - does that mean I restore to 'blank', then restore from the backup again?
