Not for quite awhle

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

No, what do I do?

I am pretty much computer illiterate. I have always been able to plug my phone into the computer and download and now, I can not...it is not just my computer and it gives a response of the UD+SB is not recognized.
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
Is there a certain setting I should have on my phone to download and have my phone be recognized ? It is not the computer!

I am saying that the response I get on ANY computer I try to download to says it is not revognized

I do not want to pay another 39 for you to fix this, I just want to know what had changed and what I need to do to fix this...I personally did not change a thing
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 26 days ago

It is likely that the drive is corrupt or formatted incorrectly. If it is corrupt then you need to erase it and copy things over again.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
