When I connect my iPhone to iTunes, I'm getting the following error: iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because unknown error occurred 0xE800005E.



Anyone have suggestions on how to fix this?

Try different USB cables and then try different USB ports on your computer.

Or restart your Mac and try again. That's worked for me.

I've only seen this on a jailbroken iPhone though.

Hi
I got this problem. To fix it I unsynced all my music and videos and then when I synced all the media back again the problem was gone.

Hope this helps
