In response to the syncing problem between the Apple’s iPhone and Microsoft Windows 7 Operating System, Intel has started an investigation of their own regarding their P55 Express Chipset which was blamed as the cause of the said problem.
Intel on Monday said it is investigating a glitch that prevents an Apple iPhone from synching with certain PCs that use a new Intel chipset. Their primary theory is that this is a BIOS or System Configuration issue.
The Intel P55 Express chipset supports the Intel Core i7-800 and Core i5-700 series processors, according to Intel. The chipset is new and has only been available since summer.
Complaints have surfaced that users using motherboards with the P55 chipset will recognize the iPhone, but when syncing is done through Apple iTunes 9, an error is generated indicating an iPhone connection failure. Windows 7 is also cited as a common problem, particularly the 64-bit version of Windows 7.
