    Yes, i did change my USB ports also, but same results.

    seems Ituner version 8 has some compatability issue with WIn XP or any unknown reason.

    I have tried other Iphone aswel, but same thing happens. This sures that my Iphone is not the trouble maker, I connect my iphone with other Laptop also, and it works without aay problem.

    But, NO other Iphone works with my laptop i.e Acer Ferrari 5000

    Dear Experts,

    I have solved the problem, It was conflicting with the Acer Ferrari 5000 series Builtin WebCam. Since Iphone gets connects as Digital Camera, that's why it was creating a conflict with the Orbit WebCam Driver, As soon i have un installed the orbit Webcam driver, all is going fine, Thanks for your all your help.

    Acer Ferrari 5000 has builtin webcam, so when ever i was re-installing windows even, it was automatically loading its driver and causing problem. Anyway. guys thanks for all your attention and kind help.

    regards/ Tahir

    see what requirments are needed like maybe enhanced usb support or maybe an update , also check the iphone web site for any updated info , otherwise there maybe something wronrg with the usb ports support driver or the usb , does anything else mess up thru the usb ports?

    your usb port on the computer needs updates and support drivers for your iphone

    check out the iphone web site for the drivers or updates for usb support for your operating system

Iphone screen frozen, also phone not showing up in itunes...

iPhone may exhibit a problem where it does not respond to any button, switch, or touchscreen input.
To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone.
To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If the iPhone remains unresponsive after trying the above steps or if it is in a different state, such as showing a persistent Apple logo on the display, try resetting the device:

Before following the steps you need to take a backup of your iphone

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds.

When you connect your iPhone to your computer, an iPhone icon should appear in iTunes in the left column under Devices. But if it doesn't, this troubleshooting assistant can help.

1. Make sure your computer has the following:

and one of the following operating systems:
  • Mac OS X version 10.4.11 or later
  • Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
  • Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Edition
If your computer does not meet these requirements, you will need to upgrade your computer before using iPhone.

2. If iPhone is very low on power or if the battery is fully depleted, it can take up to 10 minutes to appear in iTunes.

3. Connect iPhone to a USB port that is built into the computer instead of the keyboard or an external USB hub.
If iPhone still doesn't appear in iTunes, try a different USB port.

4. Restart the iphone:
To restart iPhone, first turn iPhone off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPhone will turn off after a few moments.
Next, turn iPhone on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone not responding? To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

5. If you face the same issue reinstall the latest version of itunes

If this does not resolve the issue, try completely uninstalling iTunes and then reinstalling the latest version of iTunes.

Even after following the steps if you face the same issue, then it must be some third-party software (such as security software, anti-virus software, and webcam drivers) may prevent iTunes from recognizing your iPhone. You may have to update your software, adjust software settings, or temporarily disable the software.
In Windows, MSCONFIG is used to troubleshoot conflicting software. For assistance using MSCONFIG, select from the following:

I just put XP Pro on my Acer aspire 5050 and I downloaded all the drivers and my wireless internet will not work.

If You downloaded the correct wifi drivers and still didn't get wireless...
Choose a different series... Try acer aspire 3000 wifidrivers... then Acer Aspire 5000 wifi drivers, if still no luck... Choose the acer ferrari 3000 wifi driver.. or the acer travelmate 5530 wifi driver/..

I've had alot of Acer Aspire models.. including yours... and I too would have to jump around to different models to get all correct drivers,...

Iphone + windows 2000

I found a solution for the 'battery' charge in Windows 2000. Just when windows 2000 ask for a driver, choose select driver, and make it use the 'Digital Camera' driver. In the spanish version of Windows 2000 the driver its inside 'Punto de ignicion' -> Camara digital'

In english, just roll over all the drivers until you see the windows default driver for cameras.

Now my iPhone with 1.1.4 without xtra programs its working supper (at least the battery its filling up).
