    Hello and Welcome,

    If Apple says the 3GS can handle the iOS then believe Apple. Yes, you may not get all the full iOS 6 features. But it will work.

    As for the Windows 7 machine. Driver issues? how about device manager, does it show anything connected? Assuming you tried reboot on the Win 7 Box.. Could be a iTunes issue, but not 100% sure.

    One thing to remember the 3GS is at the end of the line for Apple iOS support, so if there are issues, there very well could be, but again Apple is supporting it at this time.

    3GS with iOS 6.0.1

    I did it with my son's 3GS.
    It works perfect with some features not supported.
