Hey all,This is the deal. I know how to change the name on my iphone from itunes. That is not the issue!! The thing is when I plug in my iphone 4(ios 5) in to mypc (win 7 x64 if its any help) itunes recognizes my phone without any problems.But when I open "computer" its has a completely different name under portable devices. Now my question is how to change this name to what I want??and if its not too much to ask, to know why did it happen like that?
I was searching the internet for an answer about 10 days now and today I found this guy who basically gave the same question. This is what he had posted!
"After the IOS5 update~ and and updating two phones on same computer~ I have windows 7 x64bit, and the problem is it does not recognize my iPhone's name anymore.. in itunes it shows the correct name but when ever i look at My Computer listed under portable devices the name is wrong instead of being Louie's iPhone it shows Kim's iPhone (My Fiancees iPhone).. i can still access it and get my pictures and stuff but the name of the device is just wrong.. so im hoping you guys know how to solve this problem.. this only started happening when i installed iOS 5... so to sum it up..iTunes... Louie's iPhoneWindows... Kim's iPhone here are the things I already did but did not work...... uninstalled everything apple, rebooted and reinstalled.... restored my iPhone as new 3x and still nothing.... I am at a lost here.. so please help me guys? i know you can solve this coz sinful has never failed me before"
Please help.... Thanks
