My computer wont recognize my iphone 4 and neither will itunes. It doesn't charge either when plugged in to the computer, but it does charge when plugged into the wall.
I have reinstalled itunes and all drivers.
I have tested it on other computers with itunes.
I have turned off the fire wall.
and have even tried updating the phone to ios5.1 through wifi which I recieve a download error when I try. I also can't restore remotely from the iphone itself. It stays in the loading screen for a long time, I've waited 30 minutes for it and nothing happens.
The computer does recognize the phone when put into DFU or recovery mode, which when I try restore then I recieve a 1602 error.
I have tried using ireb r5 which didn't work either...
Any suggestions or help.
The phone works fine, calls, music, texts ect... but just a problem with computer recognizing it...

I stupidly downloaded the IOS6 update and then my phone would not detect on my computer. after 2 or 3 weeks of doing everything Apple says with no joy, I suddenly thought what would happen if I plugged my Daughters ipod in to the computer. The ipod was detected (where as the iphone wasn't) then it searched the web for something, a driver I think, once that was installed, I then unplugged the ipod and plugged in my iphone and after a minute or so, it was there! A lesson to be learnt here, If you have any device that is working fine, DON'T accept any software updates! I'm not saying this will fix your problem, but give it a go.

The difference between iTunes running under OSX versus Windows is night and day. I have had zero issues with iTunes since switching everything over to my iMac.
