Does Your iPhone Hate 64-Bit Windows?

64-bit may well be the future of computing, but it still often feels like a neglected outpost for geeks. Foxtel Downloads is one notable piece of software that lacks 64-bit love, and now there seems to be an issue brewing with 64-bit Windows 7 and some iPhone users.

Reader James pointed out the issue to us, which seems to revolve around iTunes 9 refusing to work on 64-bit Windows 7 systems running P55 chipsets being unable to see any connected iPhones. There’s several extensive threads on the Apple site, but no clear resolution so far. (There’s also a similar problem on 64-bit XP, but there does seem to be a workaround.)

Have you got Windows 7 and the iPhone working like a charm, or are you ready to throw something at the nearest garbage bin? Share your thoughts (and your fixes) in the comments. Thanks James!
