Hi all and thanks for reading.

My iPhone 2g that I recently fixed won't connect to the computer. It now appears to charge through the USB port however whenever I attach it a message comes up saying "USB Device Not Recognized" (this is on a Windows PC). This happens both normally and in recovery mode. Is there any way to force the computer to see it as an iPhone? I have already Googled the issue and tried updating and reinstalling itunes as per Apple's recommendations but it hasn't worked. Neither has uninstalling the drivers for "Unknown Device" and then making it scan for hardware changes. The issue also happens on a different computer so I assume the fault is with the iPhone. The cable works fine with a different iPod so I also assume the cable is good, however I have ordered a new one just to be sure. Any suggestions would be really appreciated!

Thanks

iPhone 2g, Windows 7
