    Upgrade iTunes to the latest version. It's 7.5 I beleive. If this doesn't work, uninstall iTunes, clear your computer's registry, then install it again. Trying different USB hubs works as well.

    Do you have a firewall installed? If so, allow itunes to connect to the mothership at least once and then try again.

    Default I had the same issue

    you must uninstall the "Apple Mobile Device Service" through your control panel uninstall.

    After uninstalling this service
    1. go to the itunes website to launch the itunes installer. It will ask if you would like to remove itunes. YES-- remove itunes (it wont effect your music, etc.)
    2. After unistalling itunes, it will ask you to restart your computer. Restart.
    3. Go back to the itunes site and install itunes. After reinstall it will ask you if you want to launch itunes. DO SO and after everything laods plug in your iphone and it will install the neccesarry drivers and will start syncing.

    Default Apple iphone error cannot sync with itunes

    Hello All,

    Its like hell i have been trying for 2 days and there seems to be no relief. I cannot sync my iphone with itunes it throws error
    (This iphone cannot be used because the required software is not installed. Run the itunes installer to remove itunes, then install itunes again).

    I have installed and reinstalled more than 10 times but it throws same error. I checked services and Apple mobile device service is working fine.

    Regards
    Harish
