Uninstall Itunes, and delete all the files except for the ones in the itunes media directory. Then, reinstall Itunes. The reason you have to do this is because the drivers that would support the IPhone have been corrupted.

Thanks so much.
This does happen extremely frequently. On this last go round I was able to get it to sync upon a computer restart.
If this happens again is your recommendation still to uninstall?
If so, can you explain what you mean exactly by delete all the files? For instance the files in the iTunes folder in the Library is that right?
Thanks very much,

Yes, uninstall Itunes. There is an article I recommend that was posted by another respondent that deals with this issue, and because of the complexity of the nature of this problem, read and follow the directions given exactly, because you will need to remove the Apple Mobile Device driver, and you could really mess up Itunes if you do this wrong.

In my case it appeared to be a data cable issue. I tried with Belkin charge only cable which is just charging off the USB, but device is not showing up in my computer. Later when I used USB cable which is both data and charging cable (default Apple's charger cable is capable of data transfer and charging) my iPhone was detected as device and drivers are installed automatically. HTH.
