Johnny Welcome to Windows 7 Forums, what version of Windows are you operating?
When I first got Windows 7 64 and installed iTunes it worked fine for the first few days, then started giving me issues with constantly staying in sync with my iPhone.
Did you chane your settings in Itunes to autosync whenever you plugged your iphone in?
Since I have an iPhone I really do need iTunes to work & I do prefer it as my media player anyways compared to others for many reasons, so this is really killing me.
Any ideas or issues that I can try?
I've uninstalled/installed it like 6 times, used CCleaner, allowed everything iTunes, Bounjour & apple to have access through the firewall both private & public.
I'm at a standstill. I hope someone here can help.
Hi Johnny I suggest you uninstall all things Apple as has been already suggested.
Follow this link to use MS removal tool and follow the prompts, here is the D/L link: Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
After downloading and installing you will need to remove all apple software, IE:
- apple media
- apple updates software
- itunes installer
AFter you finish, reboot! Download Itunes 9.02 64 bit version, here is the link: Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now
Before installing Itunes to your system make sure your iphone is disconnected.
Once itunes is installed connect your iphone, listen for the 2 distinct sounds, they will be the usb drivers
installing your phone, the first sound is the generic usb driver
because windows 7 recognises your phone as a camera, the second sound is the itunes driver recognising your phone. See screenshot!
Open up Itunes and see if your iphone is recognised in itues, if yes perform sync.
The biggest issue thats been observed is the backup process with iphone! ITunes has been observed to hang midway point during the phone backup and sync then hangs. There is a workaround fix for this, you can either disable the backup in cmd mode or you can do this with a software fix. Follow this link and download and install the Iphone Backup switch and enable! This will shut down the backup procedure and you will have the sync function operational again. iPhone/iPod Backup Switch
Sorry to be so long winded, report back to us how it went.
