    Okay so recently whenever I plugged in my iPhone, it tells me that it can’t read the contents of my iPhone and I need to restore it. If I restore it, it will let me plug it back in one time and any time after, I get the same message.

    I’ve tried doing the following:

    • Deleting facebook, twitter and tumblr apps (per the apple store’s recommendation)
    • uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes
    • turning off my anti virus
    • turning off my firewall
    • not putting music from other people’s computers on there
    • not putting anything not from the apple store on there

    I've attached the message my iTunes gives me whenever I plug it in.
    I’m at a loss. Someone please please please help me :(

    Hmm . . . if you still get the message after restoring your phone it could be something in your back up. I assume you are restoring and then setting up from a backup?

    Also had you ever connected to this computer before? Do you have the most recent version of iTunes?

    Yes I am restoring it and setting it up from a backup. I just don't know what it could be because when I do restore it, the only things that go back are my apps and my contacts. And I've never heard of anyone else having this problem with their iPhones. iPods, yes and I had this issue too, but I've never heard of it with iPhones.

    Try setting up as new after the restore.
    See if that fixes.
    If it does you have a corrupt backup file and if you keep restoring to it you will inherit the same problem over and over.

    Question I thought to be relevant: is your Windows copy legitimate? Some of my friends with pirated versions of Windows had issues with the iPhone.

    Yes my copy of Windows is legitimate. I bought my laptop from Best Buy and it was already on here.
    But to the person suggesting I restore it as a new iPhone, I guess I'll try that now.
