Test that your Firewall is not your issue


For MediaTransfer to connect from your iPhone or iPad to your PC, your PC needs to allow it to connect in the first place. Many issues with MediaTransfer are in fact firewall issues. Try turning off Windows Firewall and try MediaTransfer again.

If you use Windows Firewall see the articles here in the Knowledge base that relate to your operating system (Windows XP, 95, 2000, 7, 8 etc) 

If this works, the issue is your Firewall... we have some basic help information, but configuration may vary from firewall to firewall.
