    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I assume we are talking about devices that are NOT hardwired by USB cord to the computer?

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 9.7, AppleTV (4)
    First things to try:
    1. new cable
    2. different USB port - don't use a hub powered or otherwise
    3. Go into About this Mac - System Profiler and look at the USB devices. Can you see the iPad or iPad connected here even when iTunes doesn't detect them?
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    I have this happen every once in a while and I just close iTunes wait a few seconds then re-open and all devices are discovered.

    1. If you log into the guest user, or create a new user and install iTunes in there does that detect your devices?

    2. Have you tried new cables?
