Hello!

I've had my 3GS since launch and haven't experienced any problems with it yet. A few days ago, out of nowhere, my iPhone stopped syncing with my computer. When I plug the USB into the iPhone it rings, and shows that it's charging, but it doesn't sync in iTunes and iPhoto doesn't auto start like it used to.

I updated iTunes and OSX, but I still can't get my device to recognize!

Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If set to launch automatically when any digital camera is connected, iPhoto will launch automatically when the iPhone is connected only if there are photos and/or video available in the iPhone's camera roll.

    Does iPhoto recognize your iPhone when manually launching iPhoto after your iPhone is connected?

    Try downloading and re-installing the current iTunes version. No need to uninstall iTunes first before doing so.

    Do you mean the phone ringer sounds or you get the connecting sound?

    if you have little snitch disable it, close and reopen itunes, and try again.

    don't forget to re enable little snitch when done
