    Hi all

    I have a Macbook and I just bought an iPhone 3G and it seems my mac is totally not responding to my iPhone.

    I have the latest updates but to no avail

    I also have also just loaded intego virusbarrier 5. I heard that it is interfering with the sync of both devices. So how do resolve this problem without having to erase and re-install my harddisk

    Thanks

    Les

    I'd uninstall that virus nonsense. You don't need it. It will cause you more problems than anything else and could be causing your issue now.

    I've seen AV programs grab ipods/iphones on windows before, causing them to not show up, so your suspicions are not w/o merrit that it could be the source of your issue.

    Also try a different USB cable/USB port as well. You may want to ensure your dock connector is ok as well.

    Make sure your computer meets these minimum requirements.

    Try disabling the real time scanner in Intego Virus scan and see if that helps before doing a complete uninstall.
