I have an older iPhone (8gb) and for some reason whenever I plug it into the usb port on my computer it will not stay connected whatsoever. Itunes freaks out, it'll come up for a little bit and then just as soon as it appeared, 'Josh's iPhone' disappears. When I say "won't stay connected" I mean you'll hear the "new usb device" sound over and over again continuously and the iPhone goes crazy too. Like it's connected, disconnecting, connecting, disconnecting, etc.. The error I get during all this madness is "itunes could not connect iPhone because it received an invalid response from the device."

I've used this ( http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1286 ) link to no avail (yet.) I am about to restart my computer right now. If it works after that I'll just simply delete this post. But anyway it's in a usb 2.0, it's plugged directly into the computer, etc etc

Also I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it but I put ringtones on the phone as well, I tried adding about 5 or 6 of them through itunes and it only uploaded two of them, except one of those two appears FOUR TIMES.

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help!
