    I have a windows Vista 64 and an iPhone 4. All of a sudden, when I plug my iphone in it is no longer recognized as an iPhone and only as a camera. I cannot sync my iphone or most of the time, get it to even show up in iTunes.

    I have:
    Totally removed and re-installed iTunes and all apple programs on my computer. This includes Apple Mobile Devices, i have uninstalled and re-installed program, plus updated the drivers. Restored iPhone. Restarted computer multiple times.
    I've narrowed this down to being a driver problem, I believe. But I don't know where to go from there. I went into System32 folder and found 5 drivers. I'm really confused and frustrated. Please, please help me.

    Are you on iOS 5.1? Try a DFU restore and possible consider Windows 7 (Vista was gubbage)
