Apple iPhone - Not Syncing

Every now and then my iPhone 3Gs stops syncing. Found a quick and easy fix.

You can either:

  1. Go into your control Panel, Administrative Tools and click on Services.
  2. Right mouse click over “Apple Mobile Device” and click on Restart.


Copy the below to a batch file on your desktop and run it.

@echo off
REM – File: Apple_Device_Service.bat
REM – Description: Apple Device Service
REM – Author: Pete Freitag
REM – ADD REM comments if you don’t want to restart any
REM – of Services
echo Restarting Apple Device Service…
echo ======================================================
net stop “Apple Mobile Device”
net start “Apple Mobile Device”
echo ======================================================
echo Apple Device Service Restarted

Hope that helps someone.
