Help: iPhone Not Charging

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My iPhone is not being recognized by my Macbook. I tried its charging cable and my iPod's charging cable, neither work. The iPod is being recognized and can be charged. It has to be the Macbook, though, I tried hooking the iPhone to my old desktop PC and it was immediately recognized and gave it a charge... of course that's not a permanent solution since I won't be able to sync it. Anybody have any idea what could be wrong with it?

**EDIT**

Ok so the first USB port on the Macbook I keep a cooling pad continuously hooked up to, so I got a USB hub for the other port. I ejected all disks, powered it down, disconnected it, disconnected all cables to it and when I put it all back together everything was recognized ( :

Also, I maybe should have posted this in the Genius Bar, I didn't see that board until after I had posted this.
everything is good and it's gonna be that way forever

Like most things like this it's usually a problem with USB on the computer, don't worry it happens with Windows too.

I just don't know why a device that has been plugged into a USB port and installed, has to be installed again when it is plugged into a different USB port, the drivers are already there.

You ought to try an iPhone update when Windows thinks a USB 2 port is a USB 1.1 port...

...that wasn't much fun.

It wasn't from switching USB ports, if that's what you're getting at, I'd had it hooked to the USB hub since I got it on xmas day. Resetting it seemed to be the fix, though, even though both hard drives, the iPod and gamepad I have hooked up to it were all working.
