When I connect the iphone it opens itunes but the phone doesn't appear in the left hand pane of itunes or appears for a short space of time then disappears, what's going on?

itunes is rubbish (well my in my opinion).

Thanks in advance. David M

Looks like I'll just have to DL one of the itunes alternatives, cheers anyway.

Any suggestions to the best alternative?

Sussed it nearly.

I was using my son's nano data cable thinking that would be ok, went and got the iphone cable(had the iphone cable at work) and it seems to be showing up constantly now BUT! It won't sync videos! itunes ARRGH!

They are mp4 format and they will import and play in itunes, they just won't sync!
