Not sure but you are using USB 1.1 which is possible but the iPhone specs call for USB 2.0 only.
Try not having iTunes launch automatically when your iPhone is connected and the same for iPhoto. Launch iTunes manually after your iPhone is connected to see if this makes any difference. PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 8GB
I'm having the same issues with my iphone in OS X 10.4.10 & iTunes (7.4.2). I'm on pretty current hardware, MacBook Pro 2.16 core duo. Syncing either doesn't work, results in an error, or the sync is incredibly slow.
I don't think the problem is your hardware. This started with me when 'upgrading' to 7.4.2MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 24, 2007 12:46 PM (in response to dchill_weblinc)Does your iPhone not show up in the iTunes source list each time it is connected to your Mac?
If not, you are not having the same issue as the OP.
The OP's Mac has USB 1.1. PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 8GB
Currently Being ModeratedSep 25, 2007 11:26 PM (in response to dchill_weblinc)A couple of questions. First, tonight iTunes launched with the icon for the iPhone showing. I had plugged in the iPhone because the battery was going dead and I was on a call (I have the Blue Tooth headset). The iPhone initially showed that it was syncing and then a message came up that said syncing stopped, device disconnected (or something to that effect). I haven't been able to get the iPhone to launch iTunes since then.
Question (1) how do i over-ride the automatic opening of iPhoto and/or iTunes?
Question (2) When you say 're-boot' the Mac after installing iTunes 7.4.2, do you mean more than just restarting it?
Thanks for the insight guys. If this hadn't been working from the start with USB 1.1, I'd say, "Why wasn't this information made available from the start?" Since it works sometimes, there has to be a way to make it waork all the time.
