FAQ: What should I do if iPhone Data Recovery doesn't detect my device?

Your problem is probably caused by something wrong with USB connection. If your device can not be detected, you can follow the steps below to solve such problems:

1. Disconnect your device and connect it again. Make sure that you unlock your device and click "Trust" button on your device to trust the computer.

2. In case the connection is unstable, try to change other USB cable and try again.

3. Make sure you've downloaded the latest version of iPhone Data Recovery.

4. Check out whether your iTunes can recognize your device.

5. If your iTunes can recognize your device but our product can't, do as what follows.

• a. Launch iTunes.

• b. Connect your device until iTunes can recognize your device.

• c. Close your iTunes.

• d. Restart our product to check if the app can detect your device.

6. Check if you have installed Apple Mobile Device Service (AMDS).

Press Key + R to type services.msc in the run window, and click OK to open Service Manager. Search for “Apple Mobile Device Service” (AMDS) from the list menu of the page and right click it to select Properties to check its status from Service Status.

If it is disabled, just right click AMDS in the last step and click Start. If it is running, just click Restart from the right-click options.

• b. If you find Apple Mobile Device USB Driver in the Universal Serial Bus controllers section, just right-click Apple Mobile Device USB Driver to uninstall it. Then connect your device into computer USB port again.

• c. If Apple Mobile Device USB Driver cannot be detected in the Universal Serial Bus controllers section and Apple iPhone/iPad disappears in the Portable Devices section, please check if the Light cable from device has been connected correctly with USB port in this computer.
