    Sorry you're getting these problems, Let's see if we can help you.

    I had the issue of my iTunes not detecting my iPad but an uninstall and reinstall fixed that. I see you've done that and the problem still persists though. What version of iTunes do you have? Make sure it is the latest version. What phone and what iOS are you running too? is it Jailbroken?

    Have you tried a different cable? It shouldn't make any difference if iTunes is picking the phone up once but it's still worth a try to eliminate any potential variables.

    Open iTunes, Go to Preferences > Devices and see what devices you have there. If your phone is there see if you can make a further backup.

    Putting iTunes aside for the moment, can you see the phone as a drive when connected and looking in your drive list?

    Thanks for responding quickly.

    Ah so if we totally forget iTunes completely for the moment, if you connect your phone to your computer, you see it appear in your drives list only once? Then the next time you connect it to your computer it doesn't appear in your drives list at all?

    If that is the case, it points me towards a driver problem, rather than an iTunes problem (although it could still be iTunes related obviously).

    Is iTunes set to automatically start when the phone is connected? If so, disable that and reboot your computer then connect your phone to your computer without starting iTunes for me please.

    Go to the top menu bar under EDIT and on the bottom where you see preferences...Open that and look for the tab to disable iTunes when you plug your phone in.
