1st Gen. iPhone not recognised, Charges but doesn't say so. Why?
I recently got ahold of an old A1203 iPhone. I want to give it to my little Brother but it won't sync with any iTunes nor be recognised by any Mac I tried connecting it with. So far I tried different iTunes versions from 8 to 10 on various Macs (iBook g4, original MacBook, current MacBook Pro and MacMini Models, but none of them recognises it, not even the system profiler.
The phone charges but the battery icon does not change from the normal status icon to the »lightning bolt«-type icon and it appears to me that the process of charging is slightly slowed down. i have teared down the thing but all pins on the dock connector seem to be fine. what should i do?
Is this a good question?
