Did you try restarting the computer and the phone? That has worked in the past.

How did you unlock/jailbreak the phone? Also did it recognize your phone after and now its just randomly messed up?

I had this problem. I had to re-install iTunes all together. As in deleting the one I had while keeping the music et.c folders and installing a new one.

Reinstall iTunes.

For whatever reason the driver that recognizes your iPhone isn't running, and if restarting your computer doesn't make it run, then you need a reinstall.

Have you tried to start the Apple mobile device service manually? If not, go to Control Panel (I'm assuming you use Windows), then go to Administrative Tools, then to Services and look for AppleMobileDeviceService or something like that and right-click and see if you can choose 'Start'.
