Hello I have an iphone 5 with a windows 7 64bit pc,
When I plug in my iphone it cannot recognize it and brings up the error of MTB USB device error,
so I've tried uninstalling and re installing itunes 11 ( the latest one )
and I've tried right clicking on device manager and uninstalling and re installing as well as trying to update.
I have also tried the regedit option but i didn't have the Upper Filters option.
Also tried to find a driver on the windows site itself and yet nothing
Please can some kind soul help me....

iPhone 5 with Windows 7 same issue, "USB error" and would not recognize device. Reinstlled Windows, after that installed and re-installed iTunes. spent a day trying to fix. walked down the hall to a co-worker and borrowed her lightning cable - voila! problem fixed. please, please try swapping your cable to fix "USB Not Recognized" errors before you try anything else!

I've been having the same problem except with my iPhone 4S. I tried the advice from Navigato, auto-Xr, and Vanzelot, and srikar-c to no avail. Any other suggestions? iTunes recognizes my iPhone, but it won't show up under My Computer, meaning that I can't get pics of my phone. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

1. Unplug your device and keep it unplugged during the whole procedure
2. Close all open programs
3. Completely uninstall iTunes and related Apple software by following these instructions
4. Reboot your computer
6. Connect the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to the computer
7. That’s it!

Solution by auto_xr worked perfect for me ... I started with the procedure outlined by Navigate0 at the top, but quickly discovered I had no UpperFilters listed in my registry. Simply uninstalling the iphone in device manager and scanning for hardware changes fixed it all up ... all with the iphone plugged in. Thnx auto!

Madshk solution worked fine for me.
I think my windows was trying to use my ihpone 5 driver on my new 5S model.
1.Just go to device manager while your iphone is plugged. Right click on it. Uninstall its driver.
3.Plug back again.

The solution suggested by auto-xr worked like a charm.
It was so frustrating: for hours I combed the web and tried many different things, but this was the one that finally worked. Just writing a note in appreciation, and to encourage others to try this if they're having the same problem. (Windows 7 Ultimate, iPhone 4S)
