iPhone and Windows 2008

The iPhone doesn’t do anything with Windows 2008 by default. Usually when you plug it in, it will charge it, and it will show up as a digital camera in your My Computer. Windows 2008 , it just sits there, fails driver install, and does nothing.

If you install iTunes (ugh) , then at least you can charge your iPhone in Windows 2008, still the camera doesn’t work. I wonder if the Desktop Experience add on needs to be installed in Windows, not sure yet. For now though, at least it will charge 🙂

yes iTunes blows. horrible. WMP is better, but not much. These days I just use VLC for mp3’s. Reason to hook it to Win2k8 is so it would charge through USB, not really sync at all, just charge..


yes.. time… well, its called, no kids 🙂

And with the backup stuff, I found vista has the complete pc backup so I tried that. Havent tried a restore yet though. Drive Image XML didn’t work for me. Fun stuff..
