iPhone Sync Glitch on Windows 7

PC user with windows 7 have been reporting iPhone syncing problems. Intel has a theory that it is a BIOS or system configuration problem. They think the issue is tied to the Intel P55 chipset and certain motherboards from various manufacturers. The Windows 7 64-bit version may also be a problem.

The problem shows up after the iPhone has been recognized.  The “error 0xE8000065” is generated letting you know that there is an iPhone connection failure.

Here is a list of possible temporary fixes if you have this problem:

  • Use a USB port on a card that is not a part of the P55 chipset
  • Delete iPodDevices.xml file found in C:\Users username\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\iTunes
  • Disable Bonjour
  • Turn no C-state capability in the BIOS

Hopefully one of these will work for you if you are experiencing this problem.

Intel is still working on this to provide a fix.
