    I use vista and it never used windows update it just came up in itunes straight away no dirver install or driver updating needed. Make sure you use a usb 2 port.
    maybe there is something wrong with your itunes, try uninstalling and reinstalling it. and try on another computer to narrow down the problem.

    vista first recognises the phone as a camera then when I open itunes it has some iphone bar then it brings up the phone

    You might find you have some problem with you applemobiledevice or mobilehelper in itunes
    try using itunes 7.4.1 thats what seems to work for everyone.

    filehippo.com to download old itunes versions

    Did you install iTunes first? If not, you should. Run iTunes and then plug in the phone. Worked for me on Vista.

    It works for me in Vista too...
    remember that very old iTunes version wont recognize iPhone, because thay dont know what an iPhone is...
    even without connecting to iTunes, when you connect to the pc via a usb cable, it should start recharging
