Re: iTunes never sees iOS devices over WiFi

Under Windows, there's a long-standing issue with ATH.EXE and AppleMobileDeviceService.exe intermittently locking up.

»discussions.apple.com/thread/430···tstart=0

Once they lock up, iTunes will seem to run fine, but iTunes won't find your phone.

You can go to an administrator cmd prompt and kill these services:

taskkill /f /im AppleMobileDeviceService.exe
taskkill /f /im ATH.exe
net start "Apple Mobile Device"

Now you can run iTunes and wifi syncing should start working again for a while. The more annoying bit is that when these services hang up, they also hog a CPU core.

It's kind of ridiculous that Apple hasn't fixed this yet.

One of the reasons I gave up on iTunes on Windows.
