    3) Stop "Apple Mobile Device"
    4) Plug device in, wait for the 1/2 chimes
    5) Start "Apple Mobile Device"
    6) Open iTunes
    7) During Sync you might get an "Unable to receive data from sync services", but it still syncs)

    Hope this helps

    iTunes will backfire if it is open when you plug your device in after you stopped the service.

    This method works for me, thanks for the heads up

    1) Open "Device Manager"
    2) Uninstall "Apple Mobile Device Manager" in "USB" section, including installation files(make sure the device is disconnected before hand)
    3) Re-connect device

    To note, I've also installed iTunes 10.5 beta 7 x64, however, Syncing to no avail.
    Can you share me a link for the beta? it would be much appreciated

    Well it does not work for me, I tried many times from "Services" stop, plug-in, start, open iTunes but no good. If you have any other ways, please post here. Thank you

    I can confirm that this issue is due to the lack of Windows Media Player on your N version of Windows.. I have just had this issue with a Windows 8 N 64 bit.. Resolved it by downloading the add on pack from Microsoft for Windows Media Player 12.
    I now have my iphone drive back in My Computer so I can take pictures and videos off my phone by dragging and dropping.
    Hope this helps some other users who have stumbled across this..

    Trouble with iphone4 driver on windows 8


    Trying to install AMDS, on my Toshiba C55A Laptop – Intel Celeron N2820 2.13 Ghz 64 bit, fully updated genuine Windows 8.1
    It does not install and rolls back AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi
    Message saying:
    The Apple Mobile Device Support won’t be installed on your computer
    The installer encountered errors before Apple Mobile Device Support could be configured
    Your system has not been modified
    To retry the operation at a later time, run installer again.

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.
