    I just bought a brandnew iMac 20" 2.4Ghz machine yesterday. So far I love it. However I am having a problem with the USB interface. I have my iPhone dock hooked up to one of the USB ports on the back of the screen. When I dock my iPhone things seem to work fine, but then randomly the USB connection drops, then comes back a second later. This causes the sync to stop and start again. Or if I'm just charging, it causes iTunes to fire up and start a sync.

    I have used this dock and cable with my MacBook Pro with no problems. Any ideas?

    Well I just switched it to a different USB port on the back of the iMac and so far it's been ok. Maybe the port is bad.

    What happens if you now try again with the "bad" port? Or could you try with other (powered) USB devices to the same port?
