I recently upgraded to the iPhone 2.0 software, and then finally upgraded my desktop to Leopard after waiting for the “best beta evar” to stabilize. I noticed shortly thereafter that iTunes no longer recognized my iPhone. After a software update, reboot, and moving the iPhone to a different USB port, I still couldn’t see the iPhone.

Fortunately, the solution was quite easy in the end, thanks to the answer provided on this Apple support forum: “Have you tried reinstalling iTunes over iTunes?”

This classic, Windows-esque brute force fix worked like a charm.
