iTunes won't recognize iPhone

I connect the iPhone to the computer as always and nothing happens at all. I connected another iPod using the same cord and it worked fine. I also connected the iPhone to the wall directly (power cord) and that worked fine.

I've tried restarting the iPhone twice and the computer once (Mac).


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

What version OSX do you have?

What kind of mac do you have?

Try hooking it up to a different usb port on your computer. I have experienced issues connecting through my keyboard usb port on my iMac so i only connect in the back.

Good Luck!

iPhone needs more power than iPod, try connecting it to a different USB port and if that doesn't work try with a different computer to eliminate the option that it's the phone
