    You need to start the The Apple Mobile Device Service

    If you have a pc go to the start menu, in the search box type services. Then select services in the search results. A box will open an one of the items listed in it will be called apple mobile device, right click and start it. Then re launch iTunes.

    Does anyone have any idea why even when you set the Apple Mobile Device Service to automatically start it doesn't? Each time I reboot I have to manually go in and start this service and I set it to Automatically start and hit Apply but after rebooting I'm back where I am.

    I have had to go to an older version of Bonjour because apps like Docs To Go and SplashID won't wireless sync with the current versions of Bonjour. I thought surely that would be fixed with 9.2 iTunes but it hasn't.

    I've got this problem, too, only if I look it up in the start menu etc. it's not disabled. It's already on Automatic, but it still keeps showing the error when I start up iTunes.

    So how about reinstall itunes, and when uninstall itunes, it need us to uninstall the Apple Mobile Devices Support and Apple Application Support too at the same time on a PC.then install the itunes.
