    Windows 8.1 doesn't recognize iPhone


    Is there something I can do so that my computer recognizes my iPhone 5? I tried to go to my photos and it said it was empty.

    Thanks!

    I have an iPhone 5s and I can plug it in to USB port and it view contents on computer - without iTunes or Apple software installed. When I first plug it in and message on the phone will say "Trust Computer?" (or something like that), if you click on Trust it will connect.
    Do you see a message like that on your phone?

    Maybe I'll try again.
