Kindly try these steps:

1. Make sure that you have an updated iTunes.

2. Make sure your device is well charged.

3. Make sure that the cable you’re using to connect your device to the computer is working.

4. Restart your iPhone before plugging it into your computer.

5. Might as well restart your computer.

6. Check the USB port where your iPhone would be connected. Better connect your device to a USB port built into your computer and not on a USB hub.

7. Check if there are any third party programs or software that might prevent iTunes from detecting your iPhone.

Are you one of those people who are getting this common iTunes error 0xE8000065 while trying to connect your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to iTunes?

Well no need to worry as now there is a solution for you.

Method One:

STEP 1: Connect your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to your computer.

STEP 2: Check that the dock connector on both the device and cable are clean of any lint or other debris. If possible, connect your device using a different USB cable.

STEP 3: Disconnect other USB peripherals from your computer, with the exception of your keyboard and mouse. After disconnecting these peripherals, restart your computer, connect your device, and open iTunes.

You can also try to connect the USB to a different port.

Method Two:

STEP 2: Use the Task Manager to stop some Apple Services:

Launch the Task Manager:

  • For Windows XP: Press Control + alt + delete on the keyboard.
  • For Windows Vista and Windows 7: Press Control + alt + delete on the keyboard. Then click “Start Task Manager”. If Windows needs your permission to continue, click “Continue”.

After doing the above method, reboot and start iTunes.

This should do the trick. If you still get the iTunes error 0xE8000065 connect your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to a different computer and see if it fixes the iTunes error.

  • Multiple Methods To Fix iTunes Error:
