How to fix some mysterious problems.

I just updated my Iphone 5s to ios 8.1 and updated my itunes to the newest version(12). I'm running windows 8.1. Both itunes and pangu refuses to find my iphone. I have tested multiple cables in multiple usb ports, run as administrator, stopped and started "apple mobile device", rebooted both my phone and computer but no result. The explorer finds the iphone and I can see and preview my photos. Any tips on how to get my phone found?

Does iTunes currently recognize your phone?
