    Is your 3G updated to the lastest software update 6.0.1? If not I would update and if so I don't know because i am not understanding the last part of your question?

    Ya my phone is updated.... Oh the second part of the question was unrelated to the phone but about ever since I updated my iTunes most of the music "can't be located" when I try to play it minus the iCloud music...

    You have a computer issue not an iPhone issue. iTunes no longer points to the right directory where the music in iTunes is... Or where it thinks it is! For example if you have all your songs saved in c:\music and old iTunes used to look there for it and built your library off it, if the updated iTunes is looking for music in c:\itunes, you will get that popup.

    Make sure that your AMD (apple mobile device service) is running and its startup type is set to "Automatic". To do so hit the Windows button on your keyboard, type "services", hit enter. From the services window go to the Apple MD service, right-click > Properties.

    Regarding your missing-tracks trouble - did you move your iTunes Media folder from one location to the next recently? Your iTunes does not find the locations of your songs in the places where they were previously located.

    I too suppose its a phone issue.because the iTunes works with iPhone 4 so it should be a phone issue.

    Quite possible. Have you thought of cold-restarting your 3GS? - press and hold the home and sleep/wake button until you see the Apple logo. If not, I foresee an iPhone factory-settings reset

    I got it to sync once now but it eventually freezes again so than I have to start over... Would syncing over wifi work.. Can you manually sync your music over wifi I don't know how it works? Thanks for the help so far much appreciated!

    I don't think that wifi would solve your problem, especially since iTunes on your PC has a hard time connecting to your iPhone. You could eventually enable wifi sync with iTunes on your iPhone by going to Settings > General > iTunes Wi-Fi Sync

    Default iTunes 11 freezes when my iPhone 3GS is plugged in what to do?

    So I decided to try the restore and erase all my stuff to see if that would help... So it downloaded and then, with my iphone connected just sat there saying "preparing to sync" but never did I eventually unplugged it and gave up and my phone still works now its just got no music on it and still freezes when I connect it to the computer... I think I might have to give up and suffer till July
