Whenever I connect my iPhone 4 to my Mac Pro (via USB), my keyboard (Apple, USB) stops working correctly.
Some characters just won't appear on screen, some characters will type repeatedly (as if I was holding the key down) even though I only press it once, my command key appears to be "held down" the entire time, and a bunch of other weird stuff. Unconnecting the phone will immediately fix the problem. I've tried rebooting, and closing all programs, but that hasn't fixed it.
Anyone have a similar problem? Any ideas on how to fix it? What gives?
You don't say you're using a hub so I suspect not..I'd suggest trying the front usb on the MP. I also use a MacPro and notice at times it can be picky with which port (front/back) I select for certain devices..some work better in the front and some in the rear...just a thought

Well, that didn't last long. This morning it went back to what it was doing before.
I was using the USB ports on the back. I tried connecting the keyboard the one of he front USB ports but that didn't fix it. I haven't tried moving the iphone USB to a front port yet (the I organized my cables makes this a bit difficult).
