I am currently running Windows 7 64bit.
On a regular basis iTunes stops detecting all of my devices - iPad 2, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G.
If I disconnect the device (whichever is connected) and restart the 'Apple Mobile Device' service, plugging back in the device is then detected again.
This is an easy enough bubblegum fix however, I would not expect my Wife to go through this process when she wants to sync her iPhone.
I have 'repaired' iTunes (an option available when installing same version as currently installed).
I have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes.
Neither of these have resolved the problem.
Whilst iTunes doesn't detect my device, Windows sees it absoluely fine.
I am also running the latest version of iTunes.
Is there anything else I can try as it is slowly driving me mad!
