I can confirm the new BIOS update for my Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P (version F4v) HAS worked!
I plugged in my iphone, it pops up asking me what I want to do with my device (view pictures etc) - open itunes, voila! It's there, perfect.
So to me this seems like it's a BIOS issue, or at least a P55 chipset issue that can be worked around via BIOS.
Good work Gigabyte, thank you for taking the issue seriously.
I have a Gigagyte P55-UD3R with an i5-750. I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I do NOT have the problem everyone else is having. However, I have noticed that some of my Apple iphone cables will cause my sync to fail while others work fine. These are genuine apple cables too. These are cables that previously worked fine with an older combination of Windows 7 RC and an old iPhone software build (pre 3.1).
Where are you all finding this bios update? The file that I downloaded from
tells me that it wont run under the 64 bit version of windows 7. I have a gigabyte p55m ud4 motherboard and I'm having the problem described in the original post. If someone could give me a link or email me the file that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
That's the correct file but you don't run it under Windows. You need to put it on a CD or USB key and reboot the computer, going into the QFlash utility at bootup to update the BIOS.

Or even easier, download @bios from the gigabyte website at http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Utility_DownloadFile.aspx?FileTyp e=Utility&FileID=52 and tell it to update your PC via the internet.
You can also point it to the file you've downloaded and extracted.
The Vista Compatibility fix worked for me, although it seemed to sink very slowly. I do not know what the issue is because I was running Windows 7 RC with old setup and had no problems and then I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate on my old setup with no problems. I then upgraded to the p7p55d pro and the i5, all the sudden my itouch won't work. And mine wouldn't work at all. I would hook it up and itunes would give me an error saying it couldn't eve read it. I put it in Vista SP2 compatibility and bam! Recognized it and synced with no problems.
I know this may seem like a noob question but is there an easy way to find out what type motherboard one has? I recently bought a Dell Studio 1557:
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core i7 Q 720 @ 1.60Ghz
Any help toward finding out if I have Gigabyte, Asus, or MSI motherboard would be greatly appreciated.
almost forgot, my problem is that my iPhone 3G wants to set up as a new phone after connecting to itunes, but I can successfully sync music and apps not photos. I also get many error messages common to the ones in this thread.
The manufacturer for your purposes is Dell, you need to get the BIOS from their support site.
You can download it (+ installation instructions) from here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releasei d=R243027&SystemID=STUDIO1557&servicetag=&os=W764&osl=en&deviceid=19287&devlib=0 &typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&fo rmatid=-1&fileid=351569
Note though that it hasn't been updated since early October and if these issues are something that Gigabyte, ASUS etc have resolved, I wouldn't hold your breath for anything coming from Dell to fix anything.
An early October BIOS I will guarantee won't fix your problems. I'd suggest you contact Dell support, and then expect the answer that they can't help with iTunes issues, and to contact Apple - which maybe you should do first.
I've got exactly the same laptop and had the same issues as yourself.
I'd initially tried to get mine working but ran into many different errors so did a restore of the OS to clear everything.
To get mine working i first plugged in my iphone without itunes installed and it detected and installed the device and device manager showed up as apple mobile device. I then installed itunes without the phone plugged in and then when i plugged it in, the device installed again but showed up under USB devices.
When trying to sync though problems starting happening in that applications would be removed and podcasts and photo's would not sync with errors saying that it could not find a folder or file. Music would sync ok.
After looking on the disk at the folder structure it seems that for some strange reason, podcasts are now saved into the itunes media folder rather than a podcasts folder under itunes music which is had been on my other windows 7 PC. I deleted the podcasts folder in itunes music and then re downloaded the ones i wanted and this solved that issues.
For photo's i had to delete the ipod photo cache in the My photo's folder and this seemed to resolve that issue.
Applications also now seems to be included under itunes media rather than a applications folder under itunes music.
Everything now seems to be syncing perfectly fine without the need for a bios update.
hope this information helps you out or if you need more clarification let me know.
