Windows XP on iPhone 2G

Q: Windows XP on iPhone 2G

I have an Iphone 2 8GB that does not work.
Today,I discovered a WinXP CD.
Can I INSTALL WXP on my Iphone 2 8GB?How?
Or do I need my Joli OS stick?

Preferred Solution: Windows XP on iPhone 2G

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

No, you can't install Windows on an iPhone.

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

I just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

Old computer died, had to replace with Windows 8 PC which updated to 8.1. Just realized it won't recognize iPhone hookups, which means can't backup or restore iPhone/iPad etc. data, photos, etc.  Great!  Now what?  Any news when patches from either/or Apple or Microsoft will correct this problem?
I'd like to add to those with similiar problems with Windows 8.  I did have compatability problems with Outook 365 and the driver for my HP P1006 lasterjet printer.  However, the tech support from Office 365 was able to help me overcome both issues.  I had called HP support first regarding the printer, and their solution was to "buy a new printer", so booo hisss to HP.  I also found 8.1 is not compatible with my ACT! 2010 database, but it does work somewhat.   Their solution was also to buy the newest version of ACT!, but since that is very costly, I dedided on a better solution:  I'm just using a new database program.
Good luck to all of us with Windows 8.1.  It's pretty slick, but the software headaces are a real problem.  Went thorugh the same thing with Windows 7. 
Back to the original subject matter of this post:  If ankbody can help me out with the iPhone/iPad issue I would be very appreciative.  Thanks.

Hey everyone, I got upgraded to iPhone 4 on Thursday and I followed all the instructions I was supposed to do, (install the newest iTunes and create a MobileMe account) but every time I tried to sync my phone to my windows 7 hp pavilion dv6 laptop I received a number of error messages. Mostly the error messages where "The required file is missing", "the device has timed out", "an error occurred while writing to the device" or "could not back up because back up session failed" - and the most times it gave me the option to completely restore my phone again and so far i have done so 5 times and still the error messages occurred. I also deleted my iTunes (from control panel) and re-installed it again - and also deleted a second time and re-installed the 64bit iTunes. Nothing has seemed to work and I cannot sync any apps, contacts music or files. Although sometimes a few apps showed up on my home screen but whenever I clicked on them they just quickly showed up and dissapeared in a split second. I've been to the Apple store twice so far (with my laptop) and even the genius couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. He replaced my iPhone with a new one and gave me a new cable but the problem is still the same - we also checked my USB ports and they all seemed fine. I called Apple support but they said they aren't specialised in HP laptops so they suggested I contact someone/somewhere else... This is my last hope you guys! Its ... Read more

My daughters iphone no longer shows pops up when she plugs it in, it use to say do you want to download pictures as soon as she connected it to 10. Now it does nothing and does not even show up in devices and drives, I am assuming something got checked that was not checked or the other way around. Same iphone that did work, I don't know about 10 updates.

A:windows 10+ iphone

Apple's Support site shows her how to fix it. You uninstall iTunes and iCloud, then reboot. Download iTunes and iCloud and install. Thr problem is caused when Bonjour service gets hosed up.

Another issue is people getting too happy with trying to over secure their computer, thinking that they are doing theirself a favor.

Windows and iOS devices were never meant to co-exist in a perfect world.

She does not have to plug it into the computer with iOS is able to now sync to iTunes over WiFi.

I personally cannot even remember the last time that I ever connected mine and my wife's iPhones to out laptops to move files. I use a File Explorer app that allows me to connect to Windows Shares whenever I am on our network.

All phone backups go to iCloud Backups.

I think investors are being a little cautious - perhaps the phone won't do brilliantly - perhaps desktop users won't flock to it either - but I think it could do ok in tablets - as long as it is priced right.

The silence surrounding these Windows 8 phone events is remarkably deafening, in comparison to the hysterical response over the iPhone 5

"fan boys" must recognize that the Apple's story stock cannot trend upwards ad infinitum...
I foreshadow that Apple will shift into the product maturation stage within this Web 2.0 business cycle. Apple product launches would then parallel the feel of Nike's Air Jordan line

Windows 8 phones have yet to impress Wall Street. On September 5, cynical traders sat through Stephen Elop's Lumia 920 presentation, while simultaneously entering orders to dump Nokia stock at a 15 percent loss on the session.

Windows 8 Is No Apple iPhone Killer - Seeking Alpha

A:Windows 8 is no iphone killer

I certainly don't know the "big picture" all that well but if my observations are accurate no one really even knows about Windows Phone. I haven't been in a store yet that gave them much counter-space compared with the iPhone and Android. I think there's an awfully good chance that Windows Phone will remain a small niche player and may eventually disappear. Then where will MS be? They will have written a smartphone front-end and shoved it down the throats of desktop users who will have stuck with Win7 and/or abandoned it for a Mac or something.

We shall see.

Dear community,

Whenever I plug-in my new iPhone SE to a Windows Laptop (i tried two different ones) it is not recognized and I receive the following message: "USB device not recognized. One of the USB Devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it."

In the device manager, the iPhone SE is being shown as "unknown device" and it doesnt appear in portable devices.
My old iPhone 5S has no issues connecting to both computers. and my IPhone SE is recognized without problems by a Macbook.

I bought the iPhone 2 weeks ago and when I installed it and loaded the back-up on to it, everything worked fine.
Product: iPhone SE. iOS 9.3.3. all components (Windows, iOS, iTunes) are up to date.

I spent already hours on trying to solve the problem, going through dozens of websites searching for solutions:
- I tried different USB ports
- Itried different cables
- I totally deinstalled all apple software from my computer (including Bonjour, Apple Mobile Device, etc. etc. in the correct order)
- I re-installed itunes several times and in different versions
- I switched off my laptop, took out the battery
- I deinstalled, deactivated and installed the USB drivers several times

I have recently upgraded to windows 8.1 on my hp pavilion x2 11. When I plug in my iphone it now wont connect. Both the phone and the computer make the pinging sound that it has connected and disconnected repeatedly but the computer never recognises the device. I have had it connected before and it will connect a new ipod nano which is in the house. I have used every cable in my house (and some borrowed from others) I have searched for drivers and and downloaded all the hp recommended ones and googled everything and just cannot seem to get any answers. Not being able to back up my phone and move my music around means a big part of what i use the computer for is no longer available Has anyone got any suggestions?

I have an older computer which has been running Windows XP SP3 faithfully and decided to get a new iPhone 4. I had previously been running iTune with my iPOD with no problems.

When I go to sync the iPhone the system crashes with the Blue screen of Death
System Error Event Category (102)
Error Code 10000007e, parameter 1 c0000005, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 ba4ff7c8, parameter4 ba4ff4c4

When I have searched the MS site, this site and others it seems that the most likely problem is a driver incompatibility but I have no idea how to test for this or fix it? I could consider updating all the drivers but if that isn't going to fix the problem may just be a waste of time?

I know its an old computer and probably inferior to the iPhone 4 that I want to connect it to but it has been doing the job and if I just need to do a simple software / driver upgrade that would be great. Otherwise I may have to consider going to the dark side with a new MAC but I really don't want to spend that kind of money

I think I have attached the minidump file (I can't read dmp and wouldn't know what to do with it anyway)

Any and all help is greatly appreciated

Hey all,

Im having a little trouble with iTunes and my iPhone on Windows 7 Ultimate. For some reason when ever i plug in my iPhone to my PC, it will recognize it as a Digital Camera, which it is ment to do, but won't be recognized in iTunes. I tested my iPod Classic 80GB just to make sure there wasnt any other problems but fortunatly itunes recognized it straight away.

My current PC spec is:
- Windows 7 Ultimate
- AMD Athlon 2 x2 2.90GHz
- GeForce GTS 250 1GH
- 4GB RAM (2x 2GB DDR2)
- 500GB SATA 32MB Cache HDD
- Bullguard 9.0 Beta Antivirus (Firewall Off)
- Zonealarm Firewall

I have now been looking on the internet for the last serveral hours for help and advice but nothing so far has worked.

So far i have tried:
- Uninstalling all apple software and restarting the computer, then reinstalling itunes (didnt work)
- Reinstalling the drivers (didnt work)
- Installing iTunes 9 32-Bit, which worked and detected the iphone but only came up with a message saying that i needed to install the 64bit version, which shows in a way that itunes and windows 7 can see it.

I really am now stuck as to what it might be, so anyone that can help me, i will be highly gratefull.

Greetings to all members of TechSupport. I am a new member with a new problem. I call it new because, inspite of a lot of surfing, I could not not find a solution to this problem or even a close reference to it. I hope it is of interest to members of TS forum. My apologies to the administrators if I have posted this message on the wrong forum.

I am residing in UAE. I have a lenevo laptop model Z570, running windows 7 home premium, service pack 1. I also have an iphone with a 10 GB per month data package, model 4s, running iOS version 5.1, the latest I assume. I dont have any other internet connection, like broadband etc. I use my iphone data package for my internet use, by the usual method of what is called tethering.

I am not an ITexpert, but I understand a few things, and a little better than a novice. I would need some instructions though not in great detail.

My problem is that I can do anything with the internet connection, that people normally do, except, that I cannot update my windows OS, nor update the Mcafee antivirus that had come along with the laptop. A few notes:

1. My colleague has an HP laptop running windows 7 professional and he is able to update using his iphone. To exclude iphone issues, I tethered my laptop to his iphone, but no success.

A:Windows 7 unable to run windows update on iphone tethering

Welcome to TSF! I assume you are using IE to browse the web, right? Try opening the windows update site and see if it loads. If it loads all the way, u should be directed to a page that advices you to use the Windows Update feature in Control Panel. Am also curious. Whenever you connect to a network, windows asks you to place that connection in a category, either Trusted, Home, Public etc (not sure about all the categories). These categories are crucial because they decide how the windows firewall regulates network access of various windows components and programs. Which category have u placed your tether connection? The McAfee suite that u run, does it include a firewall, or it's the antivirus package only? The reason am asking is because these bundled security softwares sometimes come with firewalls that may not have the windows update sites in their exception lists. About mcafee not updating, does it allow you to register and activate? Usually it prompts you to activate before it can update. The registration process requires internet connectivity. Also check proxy settings on mcafee if there are any, and make sure they are set to direct connection AND NOT PROXY.

I cannot sync photos from my iPhone to my PC.

I may have accidentally moved my "iPhone pics" folder or a file in it. If I did, what can I do to undo the damage?

I have 73 photos on my iPhone in my "camera roll" (I know, I'm taking a lot of pictures). I have no other photos or albums on my phone.

I can sync some data from my iPhone to my PC. For instance, I can sync my "Notes" off my iPhone to the "Notes" in Outlook.

I cannot sync photos. Very frustrating.

FYI, when my iPhone is attached to the computer w the USB cable and I go to "My Computer" in Windows Explorer, my PC does NOT recognize the iPhone. However, iTunes DOES recognize my iPhone.

- 3G
- 16 GB
- v 3.1.2 (the latest is 3.1.3)

- IBM ThinkPad
- 1/2 GB RAM, 32 GB hard drive (I know, I'm ahead of the curve w this hardware config)
- Windows XP SP 3

The Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular NTOSKRNL.EXE / NTKRNLMP.EXE / NTKRNLPA.EXE / NTKRPAMP.EXE) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following:
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- open a support incident with Microsoft to see if they can fix the missing symbols issue ( Windows 7 Solution Center )
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds

Hope this helps,

When I plug my iPhone into the USB port and open iTunes, iTunes says "An iPhone has been previously synced with this computer."

Then I'm asked if I want to "Set up as a new iPhone" or "Restore from the backup of:"

I've already connected this phone in the past. However, each time I reconnect, I have to either restore or create a new phone, both of with require deleted and losing info and media on my iPhone.

Been all over Google with this issue, none of the suggestions worked for me.

I've read about the Gigabyte P55 BIOS update. My computer doesn't have a Gigabyte Motherboard. I tried that fix anyway and the program wouldn't let me run it because it's not a Gigabyte product.

I've read in some places that on some Dell laptops, the USB ports don't work well with iPhones. That's absurd and I can't imagine that would be the proble; I hope that's not the issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Not sure why but have you tried using clean boot,

Traditionally if you use iTunes installed on the pc and on the iphone you need to be signed into both using the same apple account,
iPhone - Syncing - Apple Support
But for the most part you should be able to click start and computer,
The power on and Unlock your device and eventually windows will install the driver and the device will appear usually as a iphone or what ever storage device is being used,

I have a Dell model E6520 laptop with Win 7 SP 1, 64 bit, i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, no Bluetooth. I tried connecting an iPhone model 6S (mkr62ll/a) directly to the computer using the USB cable. The phone software was installed and the device is recognized in the Control Panel/Devices and Printers, but is not displayed in the Windows Explorer, even after turning on/off the phone and restarting Windows.

So my question is:

Is there any way to get Windows to recognize the iPhone using the USB cable? I tried searching this forum and also tried searching the internet without success.

I want to transfer some photos directly from the phone to my computer.

I found out an issue on two DELL computers, I wanted to post it here if anybody else comes across the same isse. Hope this is ok with you guys.

iPhone is a Dominant Design though ;-) Started to test Windows 7 and discovered that the iPhone and iTunes got a problem with it. Windows 7 wants to install the iPhone as MTP USB Device, which fails. iTunes want's to access the iPhone (responds with Error 0xE8000065) and starts to freeze. Unfortunately the Windows Media Player 12.0.1700.0 freezes as well.

I guess Apples Service and the MTP Protocol from Windows are fighting against? The MTP USB Device is always being tried to be installed by Windows 7, with no luck. Somebody has a solution for this?

Finally fixed it. I don't trust DELL internal USB HUB's.

I guess what happens is the following, the chipset of the DELL USB Hubs seems to add nonsense characters to the iPhone DeviceID (VID_05AC&PID_1292) in my case it added a 2nd Device plus "&MI_00" (VID_05AC&PID_1292&MI_00). Resulting in two devices being "connected". While this might be OK - I'm not a HW Person - it lead to Windows 7 believe the second is a standard MTP Device. Whilst the DeviceID has not been used for the second, I guess it run's over the deviclass (Class_06&SubClass_01&Prot_01).

So it's trying to install it twice and as a 2nd MTP Device which then results in the protocol clash & timeouts between Apple USB Driver and Windows trying to speak ov... Read more

sounds like alot of fun!
actually no but wow.. Dell needs to do something about their computers. If they can't connect to iPhones there will be alot of unhappy customers. Not everyone is good with computers, half the population would probably hire someone to fix it.

My computer is 1 week old.  I have already spent 20 hours with various techs and apple support to get it up and running.  I spent 3 hours on the phone with HP only to be told I have to pay if I want my new computer to work!  I followed all your steps listed to get my itunes to recognize my phone, but when I searched for drivers, it went to my name and said they were up to date, but itunes still doesn't recognize my phone.  I was told by an HP sales person to go to HP and download the software media driver, but all that did was to install a new photo program I didn't want!!!  How do I get itunes to recognize my phone???  I am getting ready to return this computer!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi @dancernancy? I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post serial numbers and case details.If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, this post has instructions.

I recently plugged in a friends iphone (bob) and accidentally pressed import files rather than explore. In the autorun menu.

Now when I plug my iPhone in, Windows is saying that Bob's iPhone is plugged in, instead of mine.

Which is rather weird. Any ideas how to fix/reset to default?

My phone is named correctly in iTunes and that recognizes it correctly.

Any ideas?

Ok... so here it is. I am new here, and I want to set up my windows 7 laptop so I can vpn into my XP pro shares. I have the VPN server started on my XP machine, I have the router configured to allow pptp to pass through, and the vpn client set up on the laptop, it is connected to the internet via iphone tethering, and that connection works. The home network address is 192.168.0.X. I am not sure what ip to enter into the client when it asks, do I enter the Ip of the XP machine? or the routers address? I would imagine its the routers address, its the only one that is unique. Sorry if this info is all jumbled around..... the router is also set up to port forward, port 1723. When it asks for an ip in this section, I entered the Ip of the XP machine, and it also asks for a computer name, here I also used the xp's name. Any ideas? I am stumped, every attempt has failed. Thanks so much.

A:Iphone tethering, vpn, xp, windows 7, router, help!
