Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 1:27 PM (in response to magnat44)I am having the same problem. I called Apple support and was finally told to
uninstall the software and reload it. I did that but it still does the same thing. My pc sees the iphone but calls it an Iphone camera. ITUNES doesn't see it at all. And yes, I have rebooted several times. What's the problem, anyone?desktop pc, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 2:56 PM (in response to ronbar74)Same here on Windows 7 (x64). Removed iTunes and reinstalled it several times. When connecting my iPhone 3GS, I here twice teh typical system sound when connecting a USB device (thought I heard it only once before upgrading to iTunes 9.1?).
The iPhone is visible in Windows Explorer (accessing photots) and in MedaMonkey (accessing music).
Currently Being ModeratedApr 1, 2010 3:54 PM (in response to magnat44)I got back in touch with Apple support and talked to a Victoria. She was very nice and told me that when I uninstalled iTunes I also needed to uninstall some other components in a certain order and they sent me the following message and link:

Currently Being ModeratedApr 2, 2010 2:03 PM (in response to magnat44)So, now I'm trying to remove the Apple Software update and my computer is telling me there is some part of the Windows Installer package that is missing and it has encountered a fatal error. I don't know what that means or what to do.HP, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedApr 2, 2010 8:06 PM (in response to magnat44)All of my music, apps and podcasts was there. I didn't loose anything. My
music is stored in the "my music folder" and the uninstall didn't touch that.desktop pc, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedApr 2, 2010 8:13 PM (in response to magnat44)Maybe you could go in and delete that folder yourself. Go to the verify the uninstall portion of that documentation and it will tell you where to go to check to make sure that the files that need to be uninstalled have actually been uninstalled and what to do to them if they are still there. Other than that I don't know what else you could do except call the support group.desktop pc, Windows XP
