This is most likely because iTunes Helper was removed from the startup or login iTems. The easiest way to get iTunes Helper back is to reinstall the latest version of iTunes.
If the issue persists after reinstalling iTunes, give us a little more information about your computer.
Is it a Mac or PC? If its a PC, what security software is running on it?

I have windows XP with the latest SP.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2008 12:40 AM (in response to SJChango99)I had the same issue with Windows Vista. I would plug in my iphone after the new Itunes update and Windows would say "found new device" and try installing drivers. It would then report it failed. I looked under device manager and saw that it was listed as a camera device. I followed the steps found in the following url, and now my iphone is synching. I hope it works for you.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 16, 2009 4:32 PM (in response to tomasio)Reinstalling itunes did not change anything. Strange enough, my ipods (one nano 2nd Gen and one ipod 4th Gen) start up itunes as soon as I connect them via their usb/firewire-cables to my computer.
Also the mdcrashreport starts each time I sync my iPhone.mac book pro 2.5 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
