I probably last synced my iPhone yesterday morning.  But when I plug it in now, iTunes does not seem to think there is anything plugged in at all.  I've rebooted my Mac (MacBook Pro 10.6.8), I've rebooted my phone (iPhone 4 4.3.5) and I've swapped the cable out.  All to know avail.  Also, since I have a wireless mouse, I moved the USB receiver over to the port I normally plug the sync cable into, and it works fine.  I do find the following in the console logs:


9/6/11 9:15:15 PM[1]    ([984]) posix_spawn("/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Versions/ A/Resources/usbmuxd", ...): No such file or directory

9/6/11 9:15:15 PM[1]    ([984]) Exited with exit code: 1

9/6/11 9:15:15 PM[1]    ( Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds


I looked, and indeed the file is not there.  I would think that the file is root owned and I can't imagine anything I could have done that would have deleted it, if indeed that's the problem.


Any ideas?
