Some people have experienced this problem after an IOS update on their i Phone.Switching your i Phone off and on may bring back the inbox briefly, but then it disappears again!Also you can click the tick-box requesting for all the photos on the device to be deleted. If you can't find the USB symbol to click on, you can also get to the 'device' via the Start button, then selecting the 'Printers and Devices' link. I refused to go online to get one because I'm sick of searching for useless drivers on a pc. I can tell you that you can, indeed, sync your i Phone to your computer without the need to download any "drivers" of any kind.You should find your Apple i Device at the bottom of the list probably in listing entitled 'Unspecified'. However, you DO need to download i Tunes to your computer.Suddenly I started facing this issue when my iphone does not show up under my computer with the drives and although iphone is detected in i Tunes but does not display as drive in my computer.This is a great problem as I cannot transfer my camera captured pictures on my iphone in the camera roll folder to my computer hard disk.
New emails still download, but you cannot see them.I Googled about the problem and came to know this problem could be due to Mobile Device Driver service installed with apple i Tunes is not running or you might need to restart the service to make your iphone show up in windows explorer as driver.This is the crucial service which should be running when you connect your iphone to your computer to transfer pictures. In the "general" tab find the "startup type" drop-down arrow menu and make sure "automatic" is selected. Also see the general tab to check the "service status".The same error is occurring even when trying to sync the i Phone with i Tunes.Even after trying out the above simple steps if you are still getting the error, then follow the below two methods that I’ve successfully used.This problem can be overcome by following these simple steps on your windows/mac. Finally, plug in your i Phone, i Pod or i Pad into your PC again and start the i Tunes software. Now try updating or restoring your i Phone, i Pad, i Pod using i Tunes software.
