This is my first post. I hope I can find some help on this problem in this forum as I'm nearly at my wits end.
I have an iPhone 3G and a Mac Mini. Most of the time that I connect my iPhone 3G to the Mac Mini, I get the following error in iTunes on the Mac Mini:
"iTunes Cannot Connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occurred (0xE8000065)"
Some other salient notes:
- I am using the Apple USB to iPhone connector cable that came with the iPhone. I am not using any type of USB extender or hub -- the iPhone is connected directly into the Mac Mini.
- This has always been a problem since I bought my iPhone in December of 2008. In fact, I had a very difficult time just activating my iPhone!
- I took the Mac Mini and iPhone in to see a Mac "Genius" at the local Apple store. Everything worked fine in his presence.
- If I restart my Mac Mini, the likelihood that it works fine increases dramatically.
