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.)

When you plugged your iphone in, is it even able to charge? Have you tried going into DFU mode and see whether is it detectable?

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?

thanks

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?

Well.. i personaly use and iPad from school and im having a galaxy s2 as my main phone. I am so annoyed with my iPad becouse of the lack of functions. If you want to listen to music the S2 can be an EXTREMELY good phone for you. It has a 1.2Ghz dual core cpu instead of the Iphone 4 : 800Mhz and Iphone 4s : 800Mhz dual core.
The screen is bigger and more high resolution and the s2 costs very little.
So i would recommend getting a S2 plus
and then buying a phone subscribtion that you like. it will probably be cheaper than most stuff becouse to be honest. iPhones are expensive as h..
Try looking into android a bit more. The ace is pure crap to say the least. Cheap android phone's are nothing to have. But the ones with a bit more horsepower is amazing.

I have owned my s2 in nearly a year now. i listen to music many hours a day with powerful headphones and i can have a special app that gives more power to them, has an amazing equlaizer and starts playing directly when i plug the headphones in.

I have had AOL for a long time and I receive most of my e-mails at that address. I set up AOL on my iPhone and it wors fine, except for the fact that when I delete e-mails on the phone, it deletes it off the server. The fix for this was to set up AOL as a POP account and set it to keep the mail on the server. That worked fine, but I wasn't able to receive e-mails with attachments on my phone, it said "message was not downloaded from the server." I am in the mortgage businesss and receive rate sheets and appraisals in my e-mail and when I am not in my office it makes things easier to be able to view them on my phone. When AOL is set up an an IMAP account, the attachments download simply. Does anyone know of any settings within AOL to allow it to download large files or e-mails with attachments while it is set as a POP account? I cannot call AOL tech help because I don't pay for AOL anymore, since they allowed you to get it for free with a broadband connection. Thanks in advance.

I got an iPhone 3G today from 3, on a plan and stuff, so I can't break it. But I came home, and realised the iPhone was far more disappointing than originally expected, Bluetooth doesnt share data, only access to audio devices such as headsets and speakers, and itunes won't recognise it at all.. When connected, it charges, and appears in my computer, but itunes displays an error saying something about reconnect, iphone not recognised. This is very frustrating, as after around 4 hours of google searching, apple support ticket reading and other various attempts, I'm unable to fix this issue. I don't wanna go to bed my first night of having this new phone that's supposed to magically double as an ipod, and it doesnt even have a song on it to use as a ring tone other than the depressing default ones..

any suggestions?

i've found some people say to disconnect the wireless network, i unplugged the network cable connected to our home wireless gateway, no luck, disabled it, no luck, but maybe i'm doing it wrong.. any ideas are much appreciated

Hi,

This Jessica from Canada. As I have seen your comments as I'm getting the iPhone 3G, and I'd like your opinion on whether I should get the 8GB or 16GB. Here are the details: I update my iTunes frequently so at most I'll have 200 or 300 songs. I would maybe have 5 movies or videos on and maybe 20-50 applications(mostly free-haha). Not a lot of pictures, maybe 50-100. Obviously the white 16GB is pulling me in but with the ****ty economy I don't want to buy the 16GB unless I know I'm going to need the extra room, and I don't know if I do or not. Also there's probably going to be another iPhone in 2 or 3 years so why would I just throw away that $100?

Hi, I was wanting to get an iPhone 4S 16gb for Christmas so started comparing.

In the UK Apple store, it costs 499.00.
In the US Apple store, it costs $199.00 (which is 128).

In my opinion, that is absolutely crazy!

Is there some way I could buy it without a contract in the US store? I have an uncle in the US so he could buy it and send it over to me.

Could I then get a O2 or Vodafone contract on it over here?

Many thanks!
 

A:Buy an iPhone 4S from USA

That $199 most likely means it's tied to a contract, so with monthly payments you would pay eventually that same 499 or even more...

Looking at a few Android phones right now. Mostly LG and Sony are catching my eye, the rest of the brands seem to be on the decline. My Note 4 is almost at life's end after just 10 months, and I can confidently say I will not be looking into Samsung again.

So the question at hand, especially with more and more Android security issues arising with their OS changes, is do I make the jump? Are iPhones as good as they are marketed to be? I'm well aware that they are technologically behind out-of-box, but their OS mitigates that con by being incredibly smooth to use.

I use my smartphone for 4+ hours per day and I have been on Android for almost 10 years now.

This will be a $800+ purchase, so serious responses please.

Hi, sorry if this has already been asked, I had a quick look around and couldn't find it though.
My itunes (version 10) has decided it doesn't want me to download any podcasts. I find the ones I want and when I click on the Free/download button it looks like it pushes but doesn't do anything. I can play the pocast (streaming) on the computer but it doesn't download. I have even tried clicking on subscribe and that doesn't work anymore either, (it asks me to confirm I want to subscribe and that it will download the latest one but nothing happens) Please note that I can download podcasts through my iPhone so I don't think the problem has anything to do with the phone

Also, every time I connect my iPhone and click sync, it says it has detected software that was downloaded on the phone and do I want to back it up to the computer. It proceeds to do this (according to the status bar) but then the very next time I connect it says the same thing and proceeds to back up the same apps again.

What the heck is going on??

Hi -
I just got a new Dell laptop. I connected it via ethernet to our home LAN. I had the idea that it was 'safer' than wireless until I got security software purchased. Before I did I needed to visit my parents in another town, so I took the Dell with me to finish up. I also just got an iphone (3GS). One day while 'exploring' a dialog came up saying that a wireless connection was available did I want to connect? I did, and it did. Now I can connect to the web! Later, I decided that I wanted to connect the laptop, also. Problem is, it doesn't seem to be able to see the network to which the iphone is connected (& continues to communicate on - I checked). I thought I could connect the laptop manually by typing the IP address, subnet mask, router addr, the DNS, the ISP, or whatever was needed to get the laptop to connect. I haven't been able to find a way to do that.

So far, what I have attempted is: control panel>network and internet>network and sharing center - connect to a network
A little window pops up in bottom right corner of screen saying, "Not connected. No connections are available". But I know there is, cause my iphone is connected to it and I can see the data (IP address, subnet mask, router addr, the DNS, the ISP, etc.) associated with it.

A:Wireless: iphone - yes, W7 - no

Food for thought.If you were to connect to this unknown network you would be in affect breaking the law. It is called "piggy backing". = using someone else`s purchased bandwidth\product without their knowledge or consent.Not knowing the source of this network is also potentially putting your PC, data at risk.

Anyone use iPhone dictation? Seems to work pretty good so far although I need to learn how to punctuate and correct things without stopping the process and doing it manually.

It's a lot faster than hunt and peck on a phone (my thumbs are way too big).

Firstly, sorry if this is the wrong section. An administrator can move this thread somewhere appropriate if they wish. I'm new to this website and I'm desperately looking for help somewhere about my headset which I recently bought.

So, I just picked up a headset called the VR box. Everything is fine, but my iPhone 5S just won't fit. I've placed it inside the holder for the phone but the only thing to hold it that I can find it is a slider at the top, leaving lots more room where the phone is too small to fill causing gaps. These gaps keep making my phone slide out and fall causing a bad VR experience meaning I can't use the headset.

What can I do to fix this? I've tried using it while keeping it in place, but when I look in the headset the view is bad and I can see the top and bottom of my phone, I've tried refocusing it and adjusting the lenses but nothing seems to work.

Anyone able to help? 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.

When i plug in my iphone four i keep getting the error "Error loading pnpui.dll. Pnpui.dll is not a valid win 32 application. Can somebody please help me?
 

A:iphone error

The pnpui.dll is a "Plug-N-Play User" DLL.

Why you have this error?

It is possible your computer got infection (malware) and your antivirus software removed it. Or the file is there, but not in the place it should be. Some programmes like registry cleanup and remove stuff like this too.

I would give you a download link to fix the problem, but i have no idea what operating system you use so i cannot, and i have no idea if the link is safe.

If you are on windows 7 you can try this, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

Hi,

I have a virtual machine at work which I RDP into and I really need to be able to sync my iPhone through this. I have work calendars that need to be synced but can't seem to be able to get this working. I have enabled local sources and when I plug the iPhone in it will come up as a camera but it won't show in iTunes.

Any idea how I might be able to get this working?

Thanks,
Sam
 

A:How to Sync iPhone over RDP

Sam,
Try opening up Itunes first without plugging in your iphone. Plug in iphone once Itunes is running.

If that does not work, try:

So, on Sunday I had a few too many drinks and lost my iPhone. 02 are sending me a new sim, and hopefully I can get my old number back. Because when I had an iPhone, I synced it with iTunes, I'm wondering if my contacts have been saved in iTunes or somewhere else. Now with the research I've done online, people have said they can sync them back, but that's because they still have their iPhone to sync back to, I've lost mine, I'm wondering if there's a way I can access the sync'd contact info without actually having an iPhone, any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:iPhone Contacts

Were you syncing your contacts to Google or Outlook? Because if you were then you will be safe. The contact information will be synced back into your iPhone. However, if you are relying on the iTunes Backup, I suggest to be very careful how you do it. When I changed PC and started syncing my iPhone to the new PC, My contact data got corrupted and I lost my music (I managed to get back after a few days and headaches). Thank goodness I could go back to my Google and Outlook Contacts that I sync with my iPhone.

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.
